If you’ve never been to Kiawah Island in South Carolina, allow me to paint a picture for you. There are three colors on the island: a soft powdery blue hue found in the sky, a few tones of green blazed on the grass and trees, a number of shades of dark brown in the trees and lightly sprinkled in the sand – all three luminously glazed in the shimmer of light and love.

The setting at Kiawah Island is ideal for a destination wedding, honeymoon, proposal or vow renewal, especially if you enjoy the sport of golf and the glories of nature. Life on Kiawah Island is akin to living in high definition. The landscape is luscious, the wildlife roam in harmony and the air is deliciously perfumed with the fragrance of romance.

Angie Cimino, Associate Director of Catering at the Five Star-rated Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, is an expert at learning what a couple desires in a wedding and matching it with the variety of options available on the island. Venues include sprawling oceanfront lawns, elegantly appointed ballrooms, gardens, oceanside settings and, of course, the iconic Ocean Course.

“We customize each wedding based on the wants and needs of each couple. Kiawah Island Golf Resort offers a variety of venues and menus designed to provide a bride and groom with the wedding of their dreams,” says Cimino. “We can do everything from elegant, plated dinners served in an oceanfront ballroom under crystal chandeliers to an upscale yet casual outdoor cookout with spectacular sunsets and breaking waves as a backdrop. Our temperate climate year-round, 35,000 square feet of available reception space and multiple venues make Kiawah Island Golf Resort the perfect wedding destination.”

Kiawah Island Golf Resort is a barrier island just south of Charleston, South Carolina. Guests enjoy ten miles of pristine beach perfect for bike rides, five championship golf courses including The Ocean Course, home of the 2012 PGA Championship, tennis, nature programs and a variety of dining options.
