The best venue in Charleston!

The best venue in Charleston! Indoor/outdoor options mean you don't have to worry about weather. The view of the harbor and bridge, the landscaping, and the giant pavilion for guests to enjoy their time outside is unmatched. Our guests had the best time and the photos of our wedding here are gorgeous!

Gorgeous Views/Spectacular Service

When we started visiting venues, Harborside was the second place we saw. Both my now husband and I were in love with it. We crunched our numbers and Harborside definitely came out in top with what we wanted to spend on a venue. We got married there as well and I love that you can choose three different spots on the property to get married. We ended up doing the ceremony on the patio because the view of the bridge is too gorgeous to pass up. You will get the most beautiful sunset pictures by the water, the bridge, and the gardens around it. The reception hall is unbeatable if you鈥檙e going for a vintage/prohibition feel. We didn鈥檛 have to decorate all that much because the space is perfect as is. Chelsea was also so helpful and responsive with all of our questions. When we wanted to hold our date with her, our original date was already on hold. But she gave us two hold contracts for the date we wanted and our second date choice, I鈥檓 so grateful, because the couple that had the date we wanted decided not to book, and we were able to jump on the date we wanted immediately!!

What can we say? Harborside East is one of our favorite sites. Ms. Shealy and her crew are awesome to work with and provide professional, courteous service at a beautiful venue on the Charleston Harbor. The site comes furnished with enough rentals to hold a fabulous wedding or special event and is laid out perfectly for ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in one facility. The beautifully appointed granite bar is a mixologist dream and you couldn't ask for a more gorgeous setting for indoor/outdoor weddings. Easy to work with, detailed to a fault and perfect location central to hotels and downtown areas. Highly recommended as a Charleston favorite for weddings or any special event. ~ Elyn Rahman, The Bridal Library
