That means you can host your Charleston wedding at any time throughout the year, including the off-season, and it will still feel wonderful outside! While our Charleston wedding venues are most popular during the late spring, summer, and early fall months, we continue to hold outdoor weddings all year long.

Our Seabrook Island wedding venues accommodate a variety of party sizes. The Carolina Room and Deveaux Room may accommodate up to 50 people for a private, indoor ceremony or plated-meal reception. These spaces can host more guests if you choose to do a cocktail hour or buffet-style meal during the reception. Our larger spaces, the Ocean terrace and Atlantic Ballroom, can accommodate up to 200 for the ceremony and 225 for plated meals.
