our most favorite day!

We couldn't be happier with choosing Palmetto Dunes for our wedding! We were married at The Dunes House. The staff set the standard to the best service ever! The food was fantastic, and the staff made sure we had everything we needed! Tim and Sarah are a dream team to work with especially during the event! They had it all "taken care of" and we enjoyed our time with friends and family! So thankful for them!

Highly recommend! Above and Beyond!

Courtney and Jocelyn are spectacular! Both women made the wedding planning process a breeze. They were quick to reply to emails and answered all of our questions. Courtney was so attentive and detail oriented from start to finish! I would highly recommend the venue based off these two ladies alone!

The venue itself is just gorgeous! Exactly what you envision for a beach wedding. Very clean, classic and simple!

Planning the wedding from out of state could have been a challenge but with such great coordinators and a stunning venue it was very simple. I would recommend Palmetto Dunes to anyone looking for a beach wedding!

Simply perfection

02.25.2023 on Arthur Hills Golf Course!! Tim and Sarah absolutely CRUSHED our wedding and made it everything we could have dreamed of and so much more. Their level of service, the food (compliments to the Chef - seriously!!), attention to detail, expertise and recommendations made our day SO special and we couldn't have asked for more. They are amazing people and you will be so well taken care of from the planning process to execution. I couldn't recommend the Catering & Events team at Palmetto Dunes more! 10/10.
