Book the cottages its worth it!

The property was exactly what I wanted; a venue that allowed for a destination wedding weekend. Amazing location and views, pool and bikes for onsite guest, all our family and friends in one location! Initially had a few hiccups and delays in communication but we understand that covid and postponements didn’t help. We had rented 7 cottages for 42 guest and then 25 guest were booked at the hotel next door. Albeit the hurricane changed a lot of plans and we had to postpone from Saturday to Sunday. We originally planned on 106 guest and ended with 42. Lisa the GM was super helpful and flexible. We lost power so Lisa drove my mom to another hotel to iron and steam dresses, helped pick up catering for us, and helped coordinate things. After all the typical wedding stress and additional atypical stress being on site all weekend was amazing and I could not recommend it more. We had a great rehearsal and welcome event the night before by the pool followed by everyone hanging out in the cottages. Waking up on my wedding day at 9 am and relaxing by the water for a little before starting to get ready at 10:30 was such a luxury. Being onsite I almost never felt rushed or like anything was forgotten. I could go grab anything I needed in my cottage throughout the day. This made me feel like I got to spend every second enjoying time with family and friends instead running around from different locations. Everyone loved the food with the contracted catering GFC. Wish we could have gotten to take advantage of the post wedding pool day with the cottage guest we planned. If I had to do it all over again I’d pick the cottages again and again.

Beautifully unique hotel and wedding venue!

We stayed at the Cottages for our intimate wedding ceremony and dinner and don’t regret a thing!

The venue is gorgeous – you have views of both the marsh and harbor, and sometimes have a small beach when the tide is out! Lisa and her team did a phenomenal job prepping the lawn area to make sure our day was picture perfect. The cottages themselves are timelessly homey while still providing that elevated “hotel” experience (I would absolutely recommending stay here over a beach house if I were visiting Charleston!). Being able to stay at our wedding venue location made our entire wedding party more relaxed and turned the wedding from just a one-day-event into a vacation.

Note – they have two separate cottage lawns, so this venue can absolutely support bigger weddings if necessary, but we opted for the smaller of the two!

Speaking as a local - this is truly a unique venue that provides an ambiance that you cannot get anywhere else in Charleston, and we’re so happy we had our wedding here.

My daughter's wedding was held at The Cottages of Charleston Harbor. It was just beautiful! We have had so many compliments on the wedding, and the staff was extremely helpful. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting.
