Have a one-of-a-kind backdrop on your wedding day when you say your vows at South Carolina Aquarium; a venue located in Charleston, South Carolina. This aquarium, which is a non-profit organization, allows couples to be both in downtown Charleston and escape with their guests to an aquatic world filled with a variety of animal species on their wedding day.
Facilities and Capacity
Whether you want a small wedding of just 50 guests or a large wedding of up to 500 guests, the South Carolina Aquarium can accommodate all sizes of wedding ceremonies and celebrations. Couples and guests will be in awe of the many different animals, from the small purple sea urchin to the large and solitary sand tiger shark. With these animals as your backdrop (or the Great Ocean Tank or Charleston Harbor), you are sure to excite your guests and “cause as splash” on your special day.
The South Carolina Aquarium provides couples with an in-house events team to help plan and implement the wedding. However, weddings are not the only celebration you can experience here. You can also enjoy your rehearsal dinner or reception amidst the exotic sea life and panoramic waterfront views. If you prefer something a little more personal and special, the aquarium can provide services such as your personalized message being shared by the divers.
In addition to helping plan weddings, the South Carolina Aquarium is happy to provide transportation conveniences for you and your guests. Couples and their wedding party will receive parking in addition to wheelchair access if needed.

ABSOLUTELY a beautiful and well-managed venue. The staff is gracious and accommodating. I love photographing events at this property.
The SC Aquarium is truly a magical location for an event of any kind. If you want something unique and stunning, something that your guests will rave about for years to come, this is the place to go. Plenty of space for large groups, stunning views of the harbor and magical memories everywhere you turn. The staff is fantastic and friendly and the space is one of a kind!
