And when her lips touched mine, I knew that I could live to be a hundred and visit every country in the world, but nothing would ever compare to that single moment when I first kissed the girl of my dreams and knew that my love would last forever." - Dear John, 2010 movie
Charleston is an extremely popular locale for couples to visit, fall in love and to say "I Do." Don't believe me, just watch the movie. South Carolina has seen its share of movie crews throughout the State. (approx 100) With Valentine's Day right around the corner, the love stories interested me the most. (sorry Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls)
Folly Beach, Downtown Charleston, Edisto, Boone Hall, and Cyprus Gardens are all locations that I have enjoyed throughout my dating years. Watching the stars fall in love, share their first kiss, or have their heart broken in the these locations brings the movie to life for me. I have to say that I wish that I had had their scripts for some of the scenes in my life.
For the month of February, enjoy love quotes from movies, books, and songs on A Charleston Event's Facebook and Twitter account. Can you figure out where the quote came from? Play along.
"So it's not gonna be easy. It's going to be really hard; we're gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me... everyday. " - The Notebook, 2004 Movie
"At the end of every day I drive through the city of Charleston and I cross the bridge that will take me home. I feel the words building inside me, I can't stop them, or tell you why I say them, but as I reach the top of the bridge these words come to me in a whisper. I say these words as a prayer, as regret, as praise, I say: Lowenstein, Lowenstein." - The Prince of Tides, 1991 Movie
With all of the beautiful beaches in South Carolina, it is hard to decide upon which sands you want to say "I Do." Edisto, Folly, Sullivan's Island, Isle of Palms, Myrtle Beach...the shores are endless.
Regardless of where you decide to go, take the time to look up the tide schedule. Most brides want to get married with their feet in the sand but they don't want to be washed away with the currents.
