 Charleston is at the very top of the list of the most desirable wedding locations.  The Charleston area attracts more brides and grooms than almost every city in the country, only second to Las Vegas.  The allure of Charleston is no secret to those that live here, but sometimes a reminder of its hidden treasures is needed.  June is the top month for weddings (which means top for anniversaries too).  So, whether you are new to the game of love or well versed,  in Charleston – romance abounds.

A few experts weigh in on the most dreamy spots in Charleston and what makes us all fall in love with this city.

The city of Charleston is romantic times 10. Make that times 100. Simply follow the blue-stone sidewalk, or walk under a gaslight lamp, or through an iron gate that’s all tangled in sweet-smelling jasmine, and you’ll find the tucked-away dining room you’ve been looking for. You really can’t miss when it comes to romantic scenery in this seaside town. Especially if you’re the least bit in love, just getting to the doorways of restaurants in Charleston can be magical. Of course, there’s also the food itself—Lowcountry spicy, fresh, rich, and decadent.

Why It’s Special: Formal gardens and antebellum mansions rub elbows with edgy art galleries, jewel-box shops and chef-driven cafes along Charleston’s cobblestone streets; just out of town, you’ll find sweeping tidal marshes, white-sand beaches and plantations perfect for photo backdrops.

Only-In-Charleston Touch: DWH A-List planner Tara Guerard suggests tying the knot under a moss-draped live oak at a historic plantation. Afterward, do like the locals and serve oysters and shrimp pulled from nearby creeks, tiny biscuits filled with slivers of country ham, and miniature crab cakes on silver trays.

“If you come to Charleston and experience it like us locals do, it will forever take place in your soul, dining at Bowens Island Restaurant is especially romantic, watching the sun set over tidal creeks while enjoying some fresh steamed oysters—the list goes on and on.”
