Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Set on the banks of the Cooper River, this charming public park (once home to Charleston Naval Base) boasts beautiful walking trails, a pier and dock, and beautifully preserved historic buildings.
  • Hold your ceremony in Eternal Father of the Sea Chapel, where you’ll find whitewashed exposed ceiling trusses, original wood flooring, and pews, and dramatic, multi-paned windows running along each side wall.
  • Your reception options are bountiful, and include the open-sided, rustic Event Shed, a spacious lawn, and gracefully appointed restored officers’ quarters that mimic homes built along the Panama Canal in the early 20th century.
