Charleston is one of the top wedding destinations in the country. With the historic houses, amazing food, and scenic waterways, it is hard not to see why. In the spring, one of the best places to host a wedding would be on the water, where the Lowcountry can be your backdrop for your once-in-a-lifetime ceremony.
For an outdoor venue, Patriots Point is one of the best in Charleston. The Grove features views of the harbor, USS Yorktown, and grassy fields, all enjoyed under a huge outdoor tent. If you want your wedding with amazing views and on a piece of American history, you can actually get married on the USS Yorktown. Choose the Flight Deck for a grand view of the city of Charleston.
The Historic Rice Mill is one of three remaining antebellum rice mills in Charleston. With expansive waterfront views and exposed brick, the Historic Rice Mill is an amazing place to have a waterfront wedding in Charleston. This is a great option for those looking for an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception.
The South Carolina Aquarium is also right on the water with amazing views of the Ravenel Bridge. Along with the views, amazing animals can be a part of your wedding such as sea turtles and sharks. Having your ceremony with Charleston Harbor as your backdrop or the huge Great Ocean Tank is sure to be a splash.
If you would rather your wedding take place on the water, consider a private wedding on our sailing vessel, the Schooner Pride. Our 85’ vessel, invokes the 18th century when boats of its likes where constantly floating into Charleston harbor. She can hold up to 49 passengers and is perfect for an intimate, romantic wedding. Along with the Schooner Pride, our harbor tour boats, the Carolina Belle and the Carolina Queen, can be rented for a memorable event.
