The rich, historical backdrop of Charleston continues to make it one of the top wedding destinations in the country. Destination brides and grooms from cities like New York, Chicago, and Boston love choosing the Holy City as their choice for their dream wedding location. In the downtown area (also known as the peninsula), you'll find cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages, historical homes and buildings making it a very idyllic setting for brides and grooms looking to tie the knot in Charleston. Many of these historical homes and buildings have been transformed into wedding and event spaces during the wedding industry boom that Charleston has experienced over the past decade. Merchants Hall opened back in the spring of 2018, and is quickly growing in popularity for truly beautiful Charleston weddings and private events. Located on the second floor at 36 North Market Street, this brand new event space offers a very picturesque view of the bustling City Market.
Charleston, SC remains a top wedding destination in the country for many reasons. Lots of couples choose the Holy City for it's rich history on the peninsula, or for it's taste of the old South with its beautiful plantations for their wedding ceremony and reception. In addition to all it has to offer with it's history, Charleston also has some of the most beautiful beaches. Today's stop on the Charleston Wedding Venue tour takes us to one of the most beautiful private beaches in the greater Charleston area, Seabrook Island. Seabrook Island is a private resort town located about 24 miles south of Charleston. Even though the resort is private, the Seabrook Island Club is also available open to non-members of the community for weddings and private events. For those Charleston brides and grooms who have been dreaming about a luxury wedding at the beach, look no further than the Seabrook Island Club.
Today's stop is the 3rd installment on my Charleston Wedding Venue DJ tour and it takes me over to Boone Hall Plantation. I've seen some of the greatest weddings and parties out at Boone Hall. As one of the top Charleston wedding DJs, I can tell you when it's a Boone Hall Plantation wedding, it's going to be one heck of a party! As I mentioned in my last venue post, which was a trip out to Magnolia Plantation, you'll be hard-pressed to find any wedding venue or location in Charleston to get married where there is NO historical significance. Boone Hall Plantation, located north of Charleston in Mt Pleasant, is one of the oldest working plantations in the South and has easily become one of the Top 5 favorite wedding venues among brides and grooms in the Charleston area. Charleston has so many wonderful wedding venues and I enjoyed once again stealing some quality time in the middle of the week on a Wednesday afternoon to hang out at one's the finest venues in Charleston, Boone Hall Plantation.
During my travels a few weeks ago downtown as I was running some last minute errands before beginning my "hurrication" in St Augustine, FL for Hurricane Florence, I stopped by The Cedar Room. Ever since the consecutive "Best City" and "Top City" awards have been bestowed upon our beautiful city of Charleston, SC, the wedding industry has seen exponential growth. Within this boom in the Charleston wedding industry, we've also seen the opening of many beautiful wedding venues, and one of those is The Cedar Room, which is located at the Cigar Factory in downtown Charleston at 701 East Bay Street.
As an established professional wedding vendor in and around the Charleston area, I am always watching out for venues for couples to get married. I am also finding it more and more important to reach out to wedding venues and spread the word about my company. Upon a check of my Instagram feed this past week (mikebills_charlestonweddingdj), I discovered what will quickly became one of the area's favorite venues to get married and one that I will LOVE to play at. I reached out to the Thomas's and set up an appointment for early Friday on this very hot July day. Let this blog post serve to increase the buzz about the exclusive and private Thomas Hall Events venue.
