The palmetto dunes team was absolutely wonderful to work with and reduced so much stress for our big day so we were able to enjoy all aspects of our wedding. They handled it all from set up to tear down and anything inbetween. They were very responsive when I had my half way meltdown and eased any problems I was having. Courtney also kept an eye for the weather since we were having a beach wedding and gave me her professional opinion on moving our reception to the back up location which I think worked out even better! It was an amazing day and I cannot thank them enough for all they did. If you are looking for a beach wedding in Hilton Head this is the place to go!Sent on 09/04/2019

What a beautiful night for a wedding. Courtney and Devon did an amazing job. We had a beautiful ceremony on the beach with our reception at the Dunes House. Courtney and Devon were there every step of the way. From our initial decision to have our wedding at Palmetto Dunes to the day of the event. The reception was beautiful with the lights, lanterns and table decorations. I appreciate everything they did for us including the last minute heaters which was not a problem for them. Thank you again for making our day so amazing. Love, Eileen and Gill.Sent on 11/20/2018
