Here are my vendors:
The Dunes House - A
The Dunes House is located in Palmetto Dunes Plantation. It was a great location to get married. We wanted a location where you can get married on the beach and then walk to the reception. The reception was just steps away from our wedding site! Here is a post to show pictures of the Dunes House:

Nicole Guy is the event coordinator at The Dunes House. She helps you with answering any questions you may have and she helps coordinate the schedules of the vendors you have chosen. From my understanding, she is not a wedding coordinator. She will give you a list of suggested vendors and you are to find them from there. I honestly didnâ€™t use Nicole to find my vendors, so I am not sure if she is willing to help or not! This is just an FYI. She was very sweet and helpful. It would take 2-3 days for her response on emails, so she was pretty fast at replying! It was wonderful to have her because she took care of many of the details on the rehearsal and wedding day. Itâ€™s always nice not to have to worry about that! She really came in handy when we had our rehearsal and the groom and I forgot to pick up our wedding license that day (Thatâ€™s what you get for having the bachelor/bachelorette party the night before!) She called the marriage license bureau to find out where our license would be, the Beaufort County office or HHI county office, so that the groom could pick it up on our wedding day! Whew-disaster diverted thanks to Nicole and our officiant for the reminder!
The staff at The Dunes House on our wedding day was also great! When my mom, aunt and sisters helped set-up before the wedding, they told me that Nicole and the waiters helped them set up some of my details. My family said they got set-up pretty quickly because of their help. They even came in handy and passed out my programs and maracas to guests as they came in. (I wanted them to be placed on the seats, but it was too windy!)
We had a sit down dinner and they did a wonderful job. I didnâ€™t eat much, but my friends and family kept raving about how good the food was.
The whole night they kept saying to us...â€Thanks for choosing The Dunes House to host your wedding.â€
My only regret is very minor, but I want to pass it on! In some of my pictures, you can see a vendor with some beach rentals. Legally, I donâ€™t know if Nicole can control how far away he can be from the wedding spot, but it was a disappointment to have him that close to the rituals. Again, it is minor in the grand scheme of things! However, I would just ask Nicole how far vendors can be asked to move away from the ceremony. It never hurts to ask!

Gail was my first vendor that I called! She was so sweet and helpful. She gave me many recommendations on locations and wedding coordinators. I didnâ€™t look any further...I booked her and saved my wedding date with her! She has done many weddings in HHI, so she has many relationships with the vendors there. She is very down to earth and I love her little southern accent. During the ceremony, I got a little teary eyed and tried to fight back the tears during my vows and afterwards she whispered that I did a great job. She was really encouraging and relaxing. She has a great ceremony. She sent it to me and told me to look over it and make changes wherever I wanted. I used most of hers and added some things that I wanted also! You couldnâ€™t ask for a nicer person to marry you!
I also have attached the orginal ceremony and the altered script of the ceremony that I used. (Thanks, Morgan...I "borrowed" some of your ceremony!)
