The Old Sheldon Church

I’ve never been to Beaufort, South Carolina, so on a recent vacation with friends I let them play tour guide for the weekend.  As I was staring out the window (trying to take as many photos as possible) we pulled up to a place that could be a postcard for “The Old South.”  You should know now that I’m a HUGE history buff, so the Old Sheldon Church is a place I’ve wanted to visit for a long time. I’ve searched it on Pinterest so many times, it should have it’s own board by now.

When you start your own business, its almost all that you think about so even here when I was walking around trying to take it all in, Emblem Weddings came to mind.  I just started thinking about how the Spanish moss hanging in the trees and the way the light fell on the columns would look with a bride and groom standing underneath them.  So it led me to do a little digging…

If you want to have your ceremony at the ruins, you’ll have to be a member of the Parish Church of St. Helena, I bet there’s no guessing as to why their membership is so high 🙂 But any couple is welcome to take engagement photos, bridal portraits or host other events there as long as it’s booked through the parish.  The possibilities are endless when it comes to imagining a setup on the grounds, I made up about 20 in my head in the 30 minutes that we were there! With this amazing piece of history as the backdrop for your most important day, I can’t think of anything more beautiful than saying “I Do” here.  Can I get a wedding do over already?
