An intimate, nautical-themed ceremony and reception in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, provided a romantic coastal setting for Olivia and Ryan’s southern celebration.

The location:

We love the South! We visit South Carolina every year and decided this is where we wanted to tie the knot. We did not want the typical wedding. We wanted something totally unique. Having fewer than 50 guests gave us plenty of unique options!

We were debating back and forth on whether we should have a beach wedding or a more inland wedding. Then we found the house and it took our breath away. It’s about a 5-minute drive from the beach and absolutely stunning. It is right on the inlet, so we had our own private dock. We had our own suite on the third floor, while the bridal party and our families had the first two floors—it was a blast being able to celebrate with everyone we love under the same roof for a few days. We had the ceremony in the front yard, overlooking the waterway, and the reception in the back, around the pool and in the first level of the house.
