Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Featuring sweeping views of the waterfront, this event center located beside the Ashley River makes an especially lovely backdrop at sunset. The impressive brick building—dating back to 1861—and surrounding grounds are full of historic charm.
  • The classically styled event space on the ground floor includes wide plank wood floors, large double windows, pressed tin ceilings, and a mahogany and marble bar. Outside, the patio overlooking the marina can be used for a ceremony or additional seating.
  • Good Food Catering provides restaurant-quality cuisine and impeccable service. Their talented and flexible team will work with you to choose from an extensive array of menu options, including French and Asian dishes as well as Lowcountry specialties.
