    Charleston Wedding Venues You May Not Have Known About

    Charleston Wedding Venues Are you planning your special day in Charleston, South Carolina? There are not many places more beautiful than the Holy City. We at the Governor’s House Inn Bed and Breakfast hope you will choose to spend your honeymoon with us, and we would like to share some Charleston wedding venues with you that you may not have known about. You can say “I Do” on the sprawling deck or in the gazebo at the Cottage on the Creek. The rooftop deck is the perfect place to catch a spectacular sunset or a breathtaking view of the Charleston Harbor and Ravenel Bridge. This beautifully unique venue can be found on the historic Shem Creek waterfront in Mount Pleasant. Also in Mount Pleasant, the Cooper River Room at the Mt. Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park has one of the best views in the Lowcountry. Touted as the $14-million view, this venue will provide you and your guests with unparalleled vantage points of the Cooper River, Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge and the Waterfront Park and Pier. It’s convenient and offers world-class amenities. Another Charleston wedding venue you may not have considered is the Charleston Harbor. Yes, you can dine and dance the night away on Charleston Harbor Tours. Dinner will serve from 25 to 125 people and you can invite up to 200 for a reception of hors d’oeuvres. Talk about an unforgettable night! Moving on, let’s talk about The Links at Stono Ferry. Here you’ll find sophisticated southern charm as you recite your vows under centuries-old oak trees and dripping moss. The Intracoastal Waterway serves as the perfect backdrop… You have probably never thought about the South Carolina Aquarium as the host of your event, but it’s actually the ideal location. You can walk down the aisle with the stunning Charleston Harbor as your backdrop. Enjoy musical entertainment, a catered meal and be surrounded by 6,000 animals. The possibilities here are endless. We also suggest you take a look at Sanctuary Hall and Gardens. The venue features a light-filled Grand Ballroom, lounge and romantic garden with a gazebo and fountain. It’s only 5 minutes from the beach at Isle of Palms. And if you are looking for a church and more traditional setting, how about the Tidewater Chapel? The antique-filled chapel is beautiful, and it also has a reception hall with a catering kitchen and bridal dressing room. Finally, we believe you should consider Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. You will fall in love with America’s last romantic garden and its views of the Ashley River. This venue guarantees a wedding you’ll always remember. With all of these Charleston wedding venues to choose from, you should have no problem planning your grand event.
