Wedding Wednesday: Beachfront Engagement Photos in Charleston, SC!
Today’s destination romance features two Southern sweethearts whose story began right here at Wild Dunes Resort. For Ty and Denise, Labor Day Weekend 2009 is one they’ll never forget—marked by the memory of their very first kiss on our Grand Pavilion’s Big Chair! With such a sweet beginning, we’re thrilled they’re now on their way to matrimonial bliss.
Before walking down the aisle next April in their home state of Tennessee, the happy couple revisited the place where it all began, traveling with Ty’s family to Isle of Palms for their 31st annual Wild Dunes beach vacation. Talk about tradition!
Being newly engaged, Ty and Denise hoped to celebrate this year’s summer vacation in a whole new fashion. And with an engagement photography session around the Resort, they did just that. Feeling right at home—after annual family trips and two years as Assistant Golf Pro of the Links Course from 2010 to 2012—Ty knew all the best spots for capturing memories with his bride-to-be.
“We were on the beach between holes 17 and 18 on the Links course when a pop-up cloud poured buckets of rain on us. I got soaking wet within three minutes. But right after, there was a double rainbow over the ocean, making the moment truly unforgettable. I promise the rainbows are NOT edited in!” says Denise recalling her favorite part of the day.
From a happy reunion on the Big Chair, to frolicking in the ocean and a rainbow of color over the 18th green, trust us when we say you'll want to sneak a peek at some of the beautiful engagement photos below captured by North Charleston-based Kathryn Arvanitis Photography.
