Palmetto Dunes

A Wedding With a View

Many couples dream of a beach wedding with the tide rolling behind them and their toes in the sand. The team at Palmetto Dunes helps that dream come true for many a bride and groom every year. Here’s what many of them had to say about their amazing ceremonies:

Ben and Lindsay

“Picking the perfect location for your wedding can be the most daunting part of planning. After researching and visiting many wedding venues on Hilton Head Island, we knew instantly that Nicole Guy was honest and sincere in what she and Palmetto Dunes could offer for our wedding day. The moment we saw the Dunes House, we knew that it was the perfect location for a beach ceremony. The Dunes House offered us elegance, yet simplicity… Along with the ideal setting, came a ceremony and reception that ran smoothly and seamlessly. Everything was perfectly coordinated on the ‘day of’, Ben and I only had to show up. From the sea oats and linens on the tables to the delightful dinner, everything was wonderfully prepared. Nicole and the staff at Palmetto Dunes provided us with a venue and an experience that surpassed all our dreams of a perfect wedding day.”

Scott and Dana

“My wife, Dana had always wanted a beach wedding, and we visited numerous venues on the Southeastern coast. When we came to Palmetto Dunes, we knew we had found our place. The sheer beauty of the resort is captivating, and the Dunes House looked like something that came out of our dreams. Working with our Wedding Coordinator, Nicole Guy, was an absolute pleasure. She made the overwhelming number of decisions that we needed to make a pleasure, and guided us every step of the way. She genuinely cared about our Wedding, and did everything that she could to make sure that it was everything we wanted and more.

“The ceremony itself was stunning. The setup and decorations that Nicole had prepared were beautiful, and she was there to make sure that everything went off without a hitch. Our reception went into the night, and the moonlight shimmering off of the ocean was right out of a fairly tale. One of the things that surprised us the most about that night was how amazing the food was! Most weddings that we have been to have relatively modest food, but the Chef at Palmetto Dunes prepared one of the best buffets that we and our guests have ever tasted..

“ Lastly, it is important to note that Palmetto Dunes made our wedding affordable. The food, beverages and the venue were very reasonably priced, and we really felt like we got a great deal. Now that we have been married for almost six months, we look back on our wedding at Palmetto Dunes as a perfect event. If you are considering Palmetto Dunes to host your special day, there really isn't a better option. Palmetto Dunes was perfect, and we couldn't ask for more.”

Joe and Sarah

“Our wedding in Palmetto Dunes … was as magical a day as we had dreamed. We had a very personal sunset ceremony with one of the most scenic views imaginable. We highly recommend the staff at Palmetto Dunes Resort. From Nicole Guy's advice on vendors to her comforting words when the weather didn't seem to be cooperating, we couldn't envision planning this most important day without them. We were even able to get a sound technician on the beach to play our Beatles ceremony: Octopus's Garden, as the guest were seated, All You Need Is Love for the processional, and The End for our first kiss and end of the ceremony. As you can see from our photo, it was a beautiful, intimate event…”

“They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck. I just think it's an old saying to help brides feel better during a deluge! Nonetheless, we had no choice but to happily embrace our blessings from heaven when the skies opened up on our wedding day at Palmetto Dunes. Part of the reason I chose PD is because the Dunes House and the adjacent covered patio made for a picturesque ‘Plan B’ in case of rain … Nicole Guy was absolutely wonderful the morning of the wedding in shifting everything indoors and making sure we still had the special oceanside wedding we desired. I truly feel that our positive attitudes during the downpour, the loving energy we got from our guests, and Nicole's swift actions moved God to cease the rain precisely when the ceremony ended! It seems no sooner did the minister allow my husband to ‘kiss the bride’ that the rain stopped and the sky turned a beautiful, dreamy dark blue! We were able to take photos outside on the deck and on the beach -- our photographer loved the post-storm sky and said it was much better than having bright sun. Our dinner was still indoors and featured the simple elegance and intimacy the Dunes House offers; the food was delicious and the decor was wonderful. We enjoyed drinks and dancing outside, and we look back on our rainy wedding day as absolutely perfect! Our thanks to Nicole and Palmetto Dunes- even with the rain you gave us a dream wedding we'll never forget!”
