Weekending Around the Low Country

Coming at y'all a day late this week but between all of the wedding craziness, a dysfunctional AC unit at our new house, and some silly computer issues... this blog post just wasn't happening yesterday.

Anyway. It was another weekend of "let's do all of the things" so let's get to it!
On our way down to Charleston last Thursday, Patrick and I managed to plan a last minute Charleston brewery tour. We popped into three breweries:
Holy City Brewing
Palmetto Brewing
Revelry Brewing

 Would you believe me if I told you that we had a legitimate wedding related reason for stopping by each of these places? True story. But it also means that we got to check two more breweries off our list {Palmetto & Revelry}.
We started out our Friday morning on Kiawah with a quick 5 mile ride around the island before loading the truck back up and getting on the road towards Beaufort, SC. Beautfort is a town that neither Patrick nor I had ever been to and since it was on the way to Savannah, we decided to stop in.

We had lunch at a little restaurant on Bay Street called Luther's that backed right up to the water.

Savannah was next up on our list of places to travel to for the weekend!
We went out to dinner at B. Matthew's Eatery {a short 5 minute walk from our hotel} and the food was SO good. They did a great job of accommodating our group of 18 people and we were able to enjoy a long, leisurely dinner with some good friends. Doesn't the food look awesome?


Afterwards, we met up with the bride and groom's families at the conclusion of their rehearsal dinner for drinks and socializing. They picked a great location on River Street {Vic's on the River}. We ended the night with a stop by the speakeasy in town for some drinks and a little dancing.

Saturday morning, I got in some good mother/daughter time with my mom as we laced up our shoes and hit the streets of Savannah to do a little early morning {read: not 100 degrees out} exploring. We stumbled across a cute little brunch place called The Funky Brunch Cafe and got a quick, great breakfast there.

We spent the afternoon grabbing lunch at Cotton Exchange Tavern on River Street and then crossing another brewery off our list: Service Brewery. Plenty of more about Service on the blog later this week, so stay tuned!

& then it was time for the main event: Laura & Stephen's wedding!
Here's a quick snapshot to hold y'all over...


On our way out of town on Sunday, Patrick and I drove out to Tybee Island since neither one of us had ever been there before. We explored the island a bit from the car and stopped to see the Tybee Island Lighthouse. We opted out of going up in it but it was still pretty to check out from down below!


Can you believe it?
The last wedding before ours has come and gone. We're officially in the homestretch now - 18 days to go!


  1. Omg I love your dress for the wedding! Where did you get it??

  2. Those days are going to fly by! Love your pic with that anchor too cute. Sounds like an action packed weekend with so much travel, I have never been to any of these places and want to now!

  3. Ah, 18 days!! So, so exciting! Sounds like it a full, but so very fun weekend!

  4. Everything looks like such fun! Can't believe your wedding is getting so close!!
