My fiance and I wanted to have a Charleston area casual beach wedding--without breaking the bank. We came up with the idea to rent a beach house for a week and have the wedding there and it ended up being a much bigger project to find the house than I thought it would be.
However, we found one! And it is literally my dream wedding spot. I'm really excited! This was a ton of work (two different weekends going down there--we live in NC--and TONS of phone calls and emails) so I thought I'd share what I learned and my impressions from visiting about 20 different houses with the community.
It's a lot, so I'll do this over several messages. And possibly even several days.
