On December 5, we played at Lindsey Plantation in Taylors, South Carolina, for the first time! It is so exciting when we can play at new venues. We love to see how different they can be and how each couple can personalize a place to make it look like a new place!
This remote venue is very peaceful. They have a lovely outdoor ceremony space with lots of indoor options as well. This was a bright and sunny December day, and it was so bright that we needed to move around a bit to make sure that our iPads did not overheat in the direct sunlight. It’s always so nice when December weddings have beautiful weather. We’ve played several December weddings with snow on the ground, so this was quite a treat!
At this particular wedding, we played violin and guitar duets for the ceremony outside and then moved inside for the cocktail hour. We played for the cocktail hour as well and then even played the theme from Beauty and the Beast for the couple's first dance. It's so sweet when brides can put a song from their childhood into their own weddings! After that, we handed it over to a folk music group to take over for the rest of the reception.
If you’re looking for a lovely "off the beaten path" venue near Greenville, South Carolina, this is a great one to check out! It’s still close enough to Greenville that there are plenty of hotel options for your wedding guests, but this venue definitely feels like you are out in the country.
There is plenty of space everywhere you go so your guests won't feel overcrowded. There is lots of room to walk around outside and inside so the people won't get stir crazy. The venue is also flexible, it seems, and they were very easy to work with when we were there.
Thank you to the bride and groom for inviting us to play violin and guitar duets for your wedding in South Carolina! We loved being a part of a new location and glad we could provide the music for your special day! Looking forward to playing at this venue again.
