Currently our favorite wedding ceremony location is the Old Sheldon Church Ruins. It’s just a really romantic place with lots of character. It’s in Beaufort, South Carolina near Yemassee, SC.

The Old Sheldon Church was previously known as  Prince William Parish Church and was organized and funded in 1740’s and 50’s by William Bull, whose plantation bordered the church grounds.  It  was set on fire during the Revolutionary War and again on January 14, 1865 during the “March to the Sea” Campaign.
