Our wedding day was PERFECTION. From the ceremony to the reception, everything was amazing. The marsh is breathtaking. Even though we had a little rain shower and a few love bugs, the marsh was a beautiful backdrop for our ceremony. Our cocktail hour and reception took place inside and we were in awe of the high- vaulted ceiling as well as the beautiful view of the marsh. Maggie was our contact person throughout our wedding process and we were so grateful for her expertise in event planning. We would highly recommend this venue!Sent on 10/05/2019

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
