Exploring Charleston

May 11, 2016

We are back from our mini-moon and finally getting back into the swing of things. Our wedding was on April 30th and I can’t wait to share photos with you guys once we get the professional ones in! After the wedding we flew to Charleston for a few days. It was so nice just to relax and wind-down after being go, go, go the couple months prior to the wedding. So now we are home and I’m ready to get back into blogging more regularly. Planning a wedding is a lot of fun and extremely rewarding once you see it all in front of you but it pretty much consumes your life. So it’s a bit of a sigh of relief now that all the planning is over. Anyway, I wanted to share some photos with you guys from our trip, we loved Charleston so much and can’t wait to go again.


There was honeysuckle everywhere and I loved it. You could find it anywhere that something could grow, fences, doors, archways, buildings, you name it.DSC01456DSC01448DSC01449

The famous Rainbow Row. To be honest I was a little let down. But that’s my own fault, I think I expected an unobstructed view, so when we got there and cars lined the street it was kind of a bummer. The houses however are beautiful and those pastels, I just love.


This was by far one of my favorite homes we passed while we were roaming around near East Battery. Again, the honeysuckle! All of the flowers were so beautiful. May was such a perfect time to visit because everything was in full bloom and so bright.


I love pineapples so naturally we had to stop by the Waterfront Park to snag a picture in front of the pineapple fountain.


We visited a few historic houses while we were there. The Nathaniel Russell House we actually went and took a tour, the Calhoun Mansion we decided to walk the grounds for a bit since we were short on time for our upcoming dinner reservations.


We took SO many photos while in Charleston. I couldn’t help myself, every corner we turned there was a new house or more honeysuckle to take a photo of. One of the days we were there we rented bikes so half the time Greg was riding off not knowing I had stopped yet again to snap more photos. More posts about things to do while in Charleston and the truly amazing food we indulged in are coming soon, so stay tuned!

    I have been DYING to visit Charleston! I don’t know why… maybe its the colorful buildings or the flowers everywhere.
    I lived in SC for a few years and never made it there so it’s at the top of my travel list now. Thank you for sharing the photos! That’s such a fun place to honeymoon! Congratulations!!

      Thank you! It was so beautiful when we went, flowers EVERYWHERE. We enjoyed just walking around and looking at all of the dreamy houses. And the food there is to die for. You’ll have to let me know how you like it when you visit!
