Hilton Head Island has a special place in the hearts of many families, and those who have grown up vacationing there often choose a Hilton Head wedding as a way to bring together their past, present, and future. Celebrating such an important milestone in a place that evokes nostalgia is the reason that Danielle and Andrew decided on Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island  for their May 4 wedding.

Danielle had been going to Hilton Head her entire life to visit family, and on deciding on Sonesta, it was the location, setup, and value that spoke to her. “The Sonesta is so incredibly beautiful, being on the beach without being in the sand. It also was very reasonably priced for all that we got!”

From the available Hilton Head wedding venues, Danielle and Andrew chose the Beach Pavilion, where they dined on a meal that included steak and popcorn and combined their Midwestern roots with influences from the Low Country wedding location.  Danielle said, “We really wanted something fun and different, and we really feel that the Sonesta delivered that.”


In looking back at wedding planning, Danielle noted that they relied heavily on Theresa at the resort, from handling all of their needs, answering questions, and taking care of everything the day of. When it all came together, their favorite moment was when everyone was out on the dance floor, singing, dancing, and having fun together. Having everyone at the beach and taking photos with the bridal party was also one of the highlights of the day.


We wish Danielle and Andrew all the best in their newly married life together!
