Absolutely Stunning Venue
Even with a 5 year engagement, we knew from the start we wanted to get married at the Historic Rice Mill. The venue alone is stunning with its ornate ceilings and brick walls. The view takes it over the top. It's truly stunning. My coordinator, Eve, was FANTASTIC!!! Everyone kept saying how amazing she was. She took care of us and made sure everything was on track and going smoothly. The food was also amazing. People are still telling us how much they loved the food. I can't say enough good things about the Historic Rice Mill. It was the perfect spot for our wedding and we're so glad we chose it!Sent on 07/22/2019

The Rice Mill is a stunning venue that genuinely captures Charleston's beauty. We couldn't have asked for a better venue. Our guests gave us many compliments. The staff and our main coordinator at the venue, Eve, were incredible from beginning to end. Good Food Catering was delicious. There were many "foodies" at our wedding, so it was a tough crowd to please. Good Food Catering surpassed our already high expectations. Anytime our wedding is brought up, people still rave about the venue and the food. You can't go wrong with this venue!Sent on 08/27/2019

My dream wedding venue
A couple of years before getting engaged, my fiancé and I had browsed some Charleston venues to see what we were working with. The Rice Mill had everything we both wanted, an indoor ceremony space for him - which was crazy how few venues here have an indoor space available for ceremonies, as well as beautiful and private outdoor spaces for me. After getting engaged and we started looking at places with pricing it made me so happy that we were able to swing booking the rice mill. We went with a Sunday wedding as it was much more affordable than a Saturday, and we booked the Sunday before Memorial Day since most people are off the next day. We used Jenna, the in-house coordinator and she was phenomenal. At the rice mill you also have to use their in-house catering service, but the food was exceptional and restaurant quality. The day of our wedding was seriously my dream. The building is so beautiful, all of the staff was pleasant and professional. Several people came up to us that night and said it was the best wedding they’d ever been to (we did have open bar so their opinions could have been influenced by that but hey still!!). I wouldn’t change a thing about that day. Not to mention South Carolina had record breaking heat that weekend, so we were sooooooo happy we had a space with AC!!Sent on 06/12/2019
Beautiful, intimate, and room for an amazing ceremony and reception.
We love working at the Historic Rice Mill! Jenna and Eve work hard to make sure every client is happy and has the perfect day. Good Food Catering goes above and beyond to ensure each event is a success. The guests leave raving about the food and wanting more. They have such a great team!
We love the Rice Mill! Professional staff and a stunning venue! You can't beat it!
