We worked with Jennifer Payne of Good Food Catering. She is WONDERFUL - THE BEST! She is not only professional but accommodating and flexible with any changes. Her suggestions and guidance are always "spot on"! We so appreciated her "can do" attitude and spirit. She listened closely to our every wish and desire, understanding our "attention to detail" plan for the Reception. We wanted to use every part of the Historic Rice Mill - not only the beautiful interiors but all the outside areas. The 40 ft mahogany bar is simply elegant, easily decorated - bartenders exceptional! We used the credenzas in the room for pictures or displays making the room feel like part of our home. Also nice is the Rice Mill has tables and chairs for use so you don't have to rent them. The room overlooking the dockway and marina can be used for the cake table or for guest tables or seating with sofas like we did - another "feels like home" touch everyone enjoyed. The covered porch is especially nice draped with fabric - another gathering area for guests with cocktail tables or to place chairs and ottomans for seating. The dockway leading to the uncovered patio is perfect for chairs to watch the sunset, as we did. The uncovered patio we lit with overhead string lighting and used as a satellite bar area with teak and brass cocktail tables from the Rice Mill - perfect place for a photo booth, too. The entrance to the Rice Mill is even more inviting with lanterns in the oak trees! This venue made for a magical evening! The food was exceptional and constantly kept pace with our guests' appetites! We still receive notes and calls about the food and venue. We had a variety of some of the best food in Charleston – crab cakes, Mac N Cheese station, Pork Loin - not only did it taste fantastic, but was displayed beautifully! In summary, Jennifer Payne of the Historic Rice Mill and Good Food Catering helped make this "the wedding of our daughter's dreams"! We could not have been more pleased!

I love working with everyone at Good Food Catering! They are so great and so is the Rice Mill Building! It's beautiful...the views of the water, the decor (exposed brick, hardwood floors and "art deco" ceiling), and location are awesome. I highly recommend!
