    CYC is great for a wedding reception

    We are so happy that we chose Charleston Yacht Club for our wedding reception, not only because of the venue and the views, but also in large part because of Debbie. Having her help us through each step of the planning process made everything so much easier... and she is SO nice and SO patient and has the best personality. She also has something that is not so easy to come by - empathy. Even though she must have helped dozens of brides before me, she was just as invested in the outcome of the reception as I was. Knowing that she had our back and genuinely cared about us made all the difference. Our guests loved being there on the evening of and enjoyed flowing in and out of the main room and the decks. I can’t speak highly enough of CYC for both the management and the party experience.

    Beautiful Setting for Your Wedding

    We had a beautiful wedding at the Charleston Yacht Club 3/31/19. Debbie was amazing and very easy to work with. The view is gorgeous and everything we wanted. We had about 60 guests, which was perfect for the outdoor wedding and then reception inside. It felt full but not overcrowded and plenty of room to move and dance. You really can’t beat the price of this venue with all that it has to offer as far as location, view, picture opportunities, and the friendly, helpful, accommodating staff. We used Charleston Bay Gourmet for our catering there and they were AMAZING. Highly recommend them as well when choosing Charleston Yacht Club.

    Debbie is awesome!

    Debbie, and the entire team at the yacht club, were amazing. They let us come and visit several times, always responded quickly to emails, and followed through with every single detail. We could not have had a better venue... it was so beautiful and exactly what we pictured for our big day. Thanks guys!!!!
