The New Charleston Area Wedding Guide

The New Charleston Area Wedding Guide

Want to see a rainbow on a perfectly sunny day? Come to Charleston.

Lovingly referred to as Rainbow Row, the thirteen frequently photographed homes that stretch from 79 – 107 East Bay Street in Charleston’s famed Historic District look like a watercolor painting and are an indelible part of the city’s character.

In 1932, homeowner Dorothy Porcher Legge dreamed up an idea to beautify her street: fresh coats of paint in a variety of Caribbean colors. The first home to receive a pastel-hued facelift belonged to Legge, who gave 99 – 101 East Bay Street a pretty pink façade. Each of the neighboring homes soon embraced a signature color, including shades of yellow, green, and blue.

The charming tones of Rainbow Row are the inspiration behind this year’s Charleston Area Wedding Guide. From rose-colored cocktails to powder blue blooms, we’re finding wedding day inspiration with each cobblestone step we take—there’s a rainbow in Charleston waiting to guide you to the wedding of your dreams.

Have yet to receive your hot off the press copy? Stay tuned for a sneak peak at the inspirational pages included in this year’s guide!
