Getting Started

We will help you every step of the way…

As you explore our website, you’ll get great information about beach weddings and creative ideas that will lead to wedding memories that will last a lifetime.  Then, when you’re ready, email us at chasbeachwedding@gmail.com  and we will provide even more great Getting Started information and walk you through all the steps, simplifying and clarifying the process each step of the way.  Of course, if you have a pressing question, you are also welcome to call us, at (843)588-5588. However, please know that on weekends we’re busy helping other couples with their ceremonies and also know that we will be conducting the majority of the planning through emailing. That way, you get everything in writing and so do we.  Over the years, we’ve found it to be a highly effective and efficient way to make sure that we get every detail of your wedding right.

When you email us, you may want to include:

  • which of the four ceremony options you would like (we are completely flexible and welcome any substitutions or additions)
  • approximately how many people will be there
  • the date and time you desire, or several date and time options you may be considering  (note: summer holidays are not suitable for beach weddings because of the long lines of traffic and the crowds on the beach)

When you’re ready to reserve your day, you can mail a deposit (based on which option you prefer) which will be subtracted from the total ceremony price.  As soon as you have reserved with us, we’ll send information packets about beach house rentals, locations, marriage licenses, caterers for receptions, etc.  The mailing address is listed here for your convenience, as well:

A Charleston Beach Wedding

P.O. Box 20872

Charleston, SC 29413

Once you’ve sent the deposit (the amount will depend on which of the options you prefer), we’ll send a confirmation and continue to work with you to finalize all of the aspects of the wedding including the choice of the wedding vows, music, videography, photography and much more. Our specialty is in helping out-of-town couples have a simple, beautiful and affordable beach wedding ceremony without the added stress of making trips to the Charleston area ahead of time. It’s a way of keeping costs down for our couples.  But we appreciate that some people prefer to visit Charleston for themselves.  To schedule a meeting with us on Folly Beach, Isle of Palms or other Charleston area beaches, please call us at least two weeks in advance. But, first things first: to get started, email us at  chasbeachwedding@gmail.com .
