Charleston was even more picturesque than I could have imagined! Having all the bloggers with us was such a blast for the first half of the trip, but I was definitely excited when the boys go to town. With the quaint cobblestone streets and amazing architecture waiting around every corner, there is definitely a very romantic vibe about Charleston. I feel like I barely scratched the surface on everything this city has to offer, but lucky for me Kristin is getting married there this coming Spring! I've included some of the highlights from our trip below, and if y'all have any places you think I need to visit next time please share them in the comments below :)
Halls Chophouse // Talk about service with a smile! The owners will great you at the door when you enter, and send you off with a glass of Champagne before you leave. I'm sure it goes without saying, but order a steak ;)
82 Queen // This was the perfect place for a post engagement celebration. Pop a bottle of Veuve and enjoy the gorgeous garden seating. The Crab Cake Benedict was beyond.
High Cotton // A great spot for a classy night out in Charleston, with great live music. The Gorgonzola Gnocchi was EVERYTHING.
Charleston Waterfront Park // Take a stroll along the pier, and make sure you check out the Pineapple fountain! You may even see someone getting proposed to ;)
235 King Street // This is hands down where to shop when visiting Charleston. Hampden Clothing's curated selection of designer duds is definitely a must see.
Gin Joint // A mixology snob's dream. The service was a tad slow, but the drinks were definitely worth the wait - the Gin Basil Smash is on point.
Carmella's Dessert Bar // The perfect place for after dinner drinks and dessert.
Republic Garden and Lounge // Packed on the weekends and with good reason. Great live music, and a very creative cocktail menu.
