    Awesome location. Superb facility. Great staff.

    We had a wedding and reception at the Citadel Beach Club on February 29. The staff was responsive and accommodating to our needs and the needs of the vendors. The venue has an excellent view and great facilities. The bridal room upstairs was perfect. Ample parking is available. Great value.

    Perfect Beach Wedding Venue

    I can’t imagine a more perfect place for my daughter’s wedding than The Citadel Beach Club. She and her fiancé wanted a Charleston area destination wedding, but she was adamant she did not want to get married directly on the beach. Since the wedding was in July, we wanted to avoid spending several hours outside in the heat and humidity.
    With wedding venues costing thousands of dollars, I wanted: 1) tables and non-plastic chairs included, 2) a built-in plan B for the outdoor ceremony and 3) ample time on property. We did have to rent ceremony chairs (because indoor furniture cannot be moved outdoors) but otherwise, The Citadel Beach Club provided everything we wanted and more.
    They have a huge lawn, so we were able to have an outdoor ceremony without actually being on the beach. We used the patio for cocktail hour, but in cooler weather, it would be a great place for dancing. For an evening wedding, I do recommend springing for café lights. Not only is there no other outdoor lighting for guests who venture down to the patio after dark, but the lights look amazing from inside!
    The ballroom and porch provided a built in Plan B if it had rained or been unbearably hot. The ceremony would have been in the ballroom (with a cathedral window frame on the mantel) and the cocktail hour would have been either inside or on the covered porch.
    The clubhouse is beautiful, with gorgeous ocean views, both inside and out. The wrap around porch offered many advantages: 1) Our photographer took the majority of pre-ceremony pictures on the porch, with stunning results. This option would be a huge bonus in rainy weather – everyone could stay dry while still getting scenic outdoor pictures. 2) Our early arriving guests enjoyed the rocking chairs, shade, ocean breeze and the view before the ceremony. 3) Once dancing started and the music turned up, guests who wanted to converse had plenty of room to sit on the porch, while still being able to hear the music and watch the dancing through the large windows.
    Unlike many venues, the ballroom was built to host events, so it’s size, shape and flow are easy to work with. The hardwood floor and blue-gray walls provide a neutral background and the two walls of windows make the walls almost irrelevant. We had a head table along the ocean wall, which meant the guests’ attention was directed towards the panoramic ocean view throughout dinner.
    Michael, the property manager, was great to work with. Even though he’s not an event planner by trade, he’s overseen enough events to know what works and doesn’t work regarding guest numbers, event flow, etc. Our wedding fell within the pandemic, which added lots of uncertainty and stress. Michael always returned emails promptly and was very patient throughout, even as our calls and emails became more frequent and anxious.
    I highly recommend The Citadel Beach Club to anyone who wants to create a memorable experience for themselves, as well as their guests.

    Lovely Venue with Ocean Front Views!!

    We held our son's rehearsal dinner party at the Citadel Beach Club March 13, 2020. We had a seated meal for about 135. We had plenty of space and porches to provide guests a chance to enjoy appetizers and drinks while looking at the ocean prior to being seated. We also had room to show childhood slides of both the bride & groom. It was a wonderful event that I will remember always. Highly recommend this venue.
