Great Food in a Beautiful Setting
We had a fantastic wedding at the Cedar Room. We looked at this venue early because we've enjoyed the food at the affiliated restaurant downstairs (Mercantile & Mash) and love the aesthetic of this beautiful and historic space. We saved our date before we were engaged because we were sure it was right for us. Our guests (170 was a great number for the room, and it could certainly fit more) loved the space and the food. Many appreciated the historic note that "We Shall Overcome" became a civil rights anthem at this site. The catering team was great to work with. We asked for some modifications to the existing options and they were happy to accommodate. For example, we wanted to add a vegetarian slider, in addition to some of the sliders offered normally, and the chef asked if we were interested in a fried green tomato & pimento cheese one. We were and it was a hit among our vegetarian and non-vegetarian guests alike. Get the hot chicken app too!Sent on 01/22/2020

Having our wedding at the Cedar Room made it unforgettable. With the exposed brick and large windows, it was the exact look we were looking for. Design was much easier because we loved the aesthetic of the venue so much. The food was absolutely delicious, and the people were wonderful to work with (we ended up getting two things that weren't even on the initial menu). They turned our wedding cake vision into a delicious reality. I couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else!Sent on 01/22/2020

Best Wedding Ever
100% recommend the Cedar Room for your future event!!
We had our cocktail hour, reception, and after party there last weekend and loved e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g about our experience. We planned our wedding in 6 months in Charleston, which seemed intimidating at first. People told us it couldn't be done. Graham and Renee instilled confidence in us that we could plan our dream wedding in such a short time frame and they were right! Graham helped us set the contract and Renee helped us select our food / beverage selections and then was there the day of the event. Thank you ladies, you rock!!!
The Cedar Room stands out from other venues in many ways:
- Sheer beauty, reclaimed design features, and the history of the cigar factory. We love a space that tells a story.
- Large indoor space perfect for the winter wedding. Every other venue downtown requires a tent if you are having 100+ guests.
- Outdoor patio was an ideal spot for cocktail hour and for guests to take a breather during the party.
- Rooftop access with the view of Ravenel Bridge create the dreamiest wedding photos you can imagine.
- THE FOOD. Omg the food. This is what guests have talked about to us the most. We went with 3 stations - shrimp & grits, chicken & waffles, and southern bbq. Seriously the best food I have had in 6 years living in Charleston.
- The drinks. We had 2 signature cocktails - Moscow Mule and Old Fashioned that were individually handmade and the guests raved about how fresh they tasted.
- We had our after party at Bar Marsh, just downstairs from the Cedar Room so no one had to change locations. They have fun games like shuffle board and everyone had a fun time.Sent on 01/24/2020
