Are you looking for a unique location for your wedding reception that provides a historic, “old world” feel, as well as a beautiful view of the Charleston Marina? At the historic Rice Mill building you will not just have a waterfront view; your whole wedding party will have a close-up view of docks, boats, seagulls, egrets and pelicans! When you wish to take a break from the wining, dining, and dancing at the Rice Mill, you can actually stroll right up to the yachts and mega yachts on the Mega Dock. The Rice Mill creates an amazing backdrop for your Charleston wedding photography!
The Rice Mill Building is a nationally registered “historic place” that was built in 1861. Over the years it has functioned as a rice mill, a seaplane terminal, and a navy minesweeper base. Later it housed a gourmet restaurant, and after that the interior was extensively remodeled in a grand manner worthy of the only pre-Civil War rice mill still standing in the Charleston area.
What else makes this a perfect setting for your wedding reception? There is extensive indoor and outdoor space, so you need not fear bad weather spoiling the fun, yet you can revel in good weather and fully enjoy the outdoors. There is a luscious mahogany and marble bar connected to a covered patio; these provide ample room for live music and dancing. Also, there is a spacious parking lot in front of the Rice Mill building for all of your guests.
Rental of the Rice Mill House for your event includes catering by the Good Food Catering Company. You can view photos and a floor plan of this venue by visiting their website Here.
