We can hardly wait until the first wedding of the season on the lawn of the Kaminski House Museum this Saturday. The lawn is green, the chairs are set up and the weather is predicted to be picture perfect tomorrow - slightly cool and sunny! We wish we had an app to order a picture perfect day for each of our brides. We over seeded the lawn with winter rye grass this fall and now the lawn is lush and green. The museum has also added up lighting in several areas of the lawn. If you are engaged and looking for an outdoor venue with a rustic and romantic feel, give us a call at 843-546-7706. We have just the right spot for you to begin your “Happily Ever After!”
I am thrilled to tell you about the little room in back of Bienvenue Home. Owner Kevin Jayroe has created a precious space to market to brides to host luncheons and showers. He is providing seating for thirty with china and crystal stemware at each place setting. There is a bar area and you can just imagine a bartender mixing mimosas or other specialty drinks. Downtown Georgetown has become a hot location for couples in search of venues for weddings in the low country of the South Carolina coast. Georgetown has a host of venues for these destination weddings such as the lawn of the Kaminski House, the Kathryn and David Kossove Terrace, the SC Maritime Museum, Maritime Park, Winyah Indigo Society Hall and the stunning new space in Root. Just outside of Georgetown you have Hopsewee Plantation, Lands End Yacht Club and Wedgefield Plantation. And why not? Look at everything our town has to offer such as stunning waterfronts, romantic sunsets, architectural and historical character nestled in majestic oak trees throughout the city. These destination weddings bring in 100 to 200 guests who stay in local accommodations and rent beach front properties along the Waccamaw Neck. They eat four to six meals each while they are in town, shop in our stores and visit local attractions. The little room in back of Bienvenue provides just the right touches for bridal lunches and showers. Kevin gets it! Being able to offer a “pretty” space for bridal luncheons matters to our brides. The more we can offer these types of wedding services with special touches, the more weddings will come to Georgetown. We should all treat our wedding couples and their guests like pure gold! I can’t wait to share the news with potential couples that Georgetown has this fabulous “little room in the back of Bienvenue Home” perfect for you bridal luncheon!
