Sea Island Waterfront Events

The Francis Marion, a venue located in historic Charleston, South Carolina, excludes elegance and grace.

Couples can invite up to 450 guests and choose from three event spaces. The three ballrooms- the Colonial Ballroom, the Gold Ballroom, and the Carolina Ballroom- each feature unique elements and two of the three were originally built over 90 years ago. With touches like gold chandeliers, tall windows, and terrace views, couples and guests will be able to experience the beauty and elegance of these spaces.

The Island House was an absolute dream. I could not have pictured a more perfect place to get married. Lynn was amazing and so was the other staff. Lynn was quick to answer emails and allowed us to go visit the site as many times as we wanted. We go ready there and saw them scrubbing the grounds to insure the ground was clean for the wedding. They were extremely accommodating. The Island House was perfect in every way.
