We recently had our wedding at Callawassie Island Club and it was perfect in every way. I wouldnt change one thing about the venue, staff, anything! We hired Maggie to be our "day-of coordinator" and she was FABULOUS! So helpful and always had answers to any questions I asked. Someone spilled red wine on my dress right before the reception and Maggie was next to me with club soda almost immediately. We have also had rave reviews from our guests on the venue, setting, and the FOOD! Hands down the best wedding food I have ever had (and it was MY wedding! How awesome!)!! I strongly suggest hiring Maggie for day of and also strongly suggest the braised boneless beef short ribs (delicious!). The staff was amazing and there is nothing bad i can say at all about having our venue here. If you are considering it at all, DO IT!Sent on 05/08/2017

We had the most amazing wedding here!!!
Our wedding at Callawassie was everything we wanted and more! Maggie and the staff have it down to a science but also took our personal ideas and touches to heart and created the ideal wedding for us. My guests STILL talk about what a gorgeous venue Callawassie was and we have our amazing pictures from some of the best spots there.Sent on 08/07/2019

My husband and I got married here this past May and everything was so amazing. Maggie and the whole staff were so helpful during the whole process of planning our wedding. Maggie was really responsive and answered all of our questions timely. We had Maggie as our day of coordination and the day went as smooth as possible, even with a thunderstorm passing through. All the guests raved about the food and drinks provided by the venue. The staff was so catering to us. We had a welcome party the night before at the clubhouse and it was wonderful! The venue is beautiful and has an amazing view. Our ceremony was held on the lawn, which we loved! The reception space is perfect for entertaining guests and was just the right amount of space! We are so happy we got married here!Sent on 08/09/2019
