A Charleston Beach Elopement - Advice from a Charleston Wedding Officiant

Updated: Jan 29

Dear Charleston Brides and Grooms,


Looking for the perfect beach elopement location? As a wedding officiant in Charleston, SC, I have seen my fair share of elopement spots...


Do I have a great spot for you! Tucked right in between Sullivan's Island and Isle of Palm is the beautiful Breach Inlet. This waterway is known for it's pretty picturesque views of the water (and the million dollar houses along the beach). The beach is the perfect spot for a Charleston Elopement!


Ezra and Tiffany tied the knot at this pretty spot, and then enjoyed an adorable brunch picnic hosted by Pampas & Picnics. Tell me you wouldn't love to tuck away in this cute teepee with your new husband/wife?

As a part of my elopement ceremonies, I offer the couple the option to personalize the elopement ceremony script with various readings, prayers and vow options. (Refer to my previous post with more info about the options I offer for VOWS).


As a wedding officiant, I love an elopement ceremony that is light, engaging and reflects the style of the couple. My aim is to have it feel more like a conversation, than something stuffy or very scripted. If you as the couple, decide to recite your own vows, I physically take a step back. This moment is about the two of you (not your wedding officiant)! Take your time, and enjoy the moment!


This happy couple choose a short and sweet elopement ceremony! The elopement photographer (Kerry Fotta) was able to capture the range of emotions. Some couples who elope are on the fence about whether to invest in a photographer for the ceremony. My advice, as a wedding officiant... IT IS TOTALLY WORTH IT! Your wedding day / elopement day marks a new beginning to your relationship. I always recommend having beautiful photographs of the elopement ceremony!
