Charleston + Folly Beach, South Carolina

My family recently traveled to Charleston/Folly Beach, South Carolina for a big family and friends beach trip! This group consisted of my family, some of my Dad’s best friends from high school, and their families. In total, there were about 30 of us staying in 5 different houses along Folly Beach (I was obsessed with our beachfront rental… we’re already low-key talking about going back and renting the same place next year!). Folly Beach is the cutest little town and it was the perfect location for this trip. I had such a blast with my family and lifelong family friends, spending long days relaxing on the beach and jumping in the ocean, and popping over to Charleston which was only a short, 20-minute drive from Folly.

I debated if I was even going to blog this trip because I was pretty unplugged during this week spending time with family and friends. I maybe had my camera out for a few hours of our entire trip (which is so unlike me!) because I don’t get to see my family as often as I’d like, so I really wanted to be present and soak up our time together!

But in the end, I decided to share some of my favorite memories (a random assortment of the few pictures I took with my camera + iPhone) from our time in South Carolina! Enjoy!

Some of our favorite spots in both Charleston and Folly Beach from this trip included:

Charleston // Magnolias / Poogan’s Porch / The Gin Joint / Husk / Bitty & Beau’s Coffeeshop

Folly Beach // Taco Boy / Lost Dog Cafe / Chico Feo / Lowlife Bar

Patrick and I arrived a day early so we could see one of our dearest friends, Brent, who currently lives in South Carolina! Brent was the Best Man in our wedding and Patrick’s childhood best friend.

Any trip to Charleston requires a stop at Rainbow Row + brunch at Poogan’s Porch! My family friend, Anna, and I got to check those items off our list together! Anna and I have been friends since birth and our Dad’s were friends in high school!

Part of our crazy crew during one of our nightly house parties! And of course had to include a selfie with my sweet Mama because I don’t get to snuggle with her nearly enough!
