8. Twigs Tempietto, Greenville, SC

Romantic and enchanting, a wedding at Twigs Tempietto is straight out of a fairy tale. Guests marvel at the venue’s woodland vibe, gazebo, and quaint garden accents. They also offer wedding planning services and packages to ensure all the details are taken care of so you can relax and enjoy your special day.

9. Chattooga Belle Farm, Long Creek, SC

This idyllic rolling farmland provides a stunning backdrop for weddings. They feature a variety of locales for the ceremony, including their expansive stone patio and event barn. They can also help you take care of the planning, including meals, setup, decorating, and bar service.

Yesterday they got married at 8 AM next to her mother's bedside and then again at 4 PM next to a cross and in front of so many people who loved them. After they were announced as husband + wife (again) they immediately came back out and individually dismissed each guest to the reception with a hug and a "thank you", because that's who they are. Simply put, to know Kaitlin + Rick is to love them and to get a glimpse of their heart is the same as getting a glimpse of Jesus himself. I would write you a novel about what happened yesterday if I wasn't still trying to process the fullness of it myself, but I will say that the whole entire day was a perfect representation of not only them, but of the gospel and I'll forever be thankful that I got to take part in a day like that with people like them. #kileylaurenphotography
