Our experience with Wim and Mieke and the Palmetto Bed and Breakfast was so exceptional it has taken me a year to try to find the words to express how truly amazing it was. A year ago my husband and I married here. For us it was a destination wedding and the one thing we knew we wanted was not to get married on a beach or in a ballroom- so the search for such a perfect venue was not an easy one. After searching and searching we stumbled across the Palmetto B&B- it was truly answer to prayer. It somehow meet my husband and my vision of a charming backyard wedding, my Father’s vision of an elegant wedding venue, and was handicap accessible to meet the needs of my grandparents (which surprisingly not every venue is). We quickly all fell in love with the B&B and with its owners Wim and Mieke and their sweet family. We decided to book the entire B&B for the weekend and every part of our experience staying in and marrying at the Palmetto B&B was magical.
Wim and Mieke are the most gracious hosts you will ever have. They will bend over backwards to make you experience as perfect as possible. Their eye for detail and strives towards perfection are evident in every aspect of the amazing venue. The house and grounds of the B&B are meticulously cared for. All our family and friends also quickly fell in love with the beauty of the venue when they arrived.
Marrying facing the water, under an old tree in what feels like your own private front yard was absolutely magical. The whole experience of marrying in the yard and walking around back to the reception created such a sense of intimacy and ease. The reception was equally as beautiful under the glowing string lights and the magical backyard venue, like one of my friends said, “felt like movie set”. My only regret was not staying at the B&B another day- if you can, stay the day before, the night after the event, and the day and evening following. The wedding is such a fast happy blur, you will want more time to absorb the special moment in your life that just happened while relaxing at the beautiful home that Wim and Mieke have created. I could not have dreamt of a more perfect venue or a more wonderful experience for our wedding day. They will make you feel like your wedding is as special as the first wedding they ever had there, even though they are truly pros!
