The growth of the Charleston wedding industry over the past decade has brought with it the introduction of more and more beautiful wedding venues. If you just decided that you'd like to get married in Charleston, but are undecided on your wedding venue, this post could very well help to sway your decision. First and foremost, if you haven't been to Charleston before, you need to be prepared to be blindsided by it's very high level of charm, history, beauty, and romance. The peninsula of Charleston (also known as downtown) is where you could spend hours and hours on a rickshaw or carriage learning about the city's 300+ year history. The charm of Charleston can be seen all over the peninsula with historic homes and mansions that have been well maintained over the years. The owners of some of this real estate have seen fit to offer their properties to the Charleston wedding industry. I mean, what better way to experience the beauty and charm of Charleston than to feel what it was like 200 years ago and get married in an historic, colonial house or mansion? As one of the best Charleston Wedding DJs, it's been my aim to provide helpful content to all my clients coming to the Holy City to get married. The next stop on my Charleston Wedding Venue tour takes me to Cannon Green. You'll want to read on to learn more about this popular, new downtown Charleston wedding venue.
Back in August (right before Labor Day weekend), I published a post outlining 5 Great Reasons To Get Married In Charleston. You may check it out by clicking that link, but one of the reason's I spoke of in that post was "Breathtakingly Beautiful Wedding Venues". With Charleston being a city of rich history and charm, and it's downtown area surrounded by bodies of water, there are no shortage of places to have your wedding where you are able to enjoy nice harbor breezes and sunsets. In today's installment of my Charleston Wedding DJ tour, (actually the 4th stop), we're required to travel over one of the symbols of Charleston that opened back in 2005, the Ravenel Bridge. Located in Mt Pleasant and on the Charleston Harbor with one of the best views of Charleston and the iconic Ravenel Bridge, we find Harborside East. Opening in 2010, Harborside East is located in the Motley Rice Building and has become one of Mt. Pleasant's premier wedding venues. Whether you are a local couple or one of the many wonderful couples coming to Charleston on an annual basis to say their "I Do's", Harborside East is the perfect wedding venue for the couple who wants a posh and upscale atmosphere at a very reasonable price, with a view that is simply priceless.
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.
Here we are now in the first weekend of June and the spring wedding season in Charleston is still in full swing. As the calendar has switched from May to June, there is light at the tunnel for some of us to catch our breath as the spring wedding season begins to wane as we approach the summer solstice around June 22. While Mike Bills Entertainment has a tendency to conduct nearly all of it's weddings in the greater Charleston, SC area, I caught the eyes of a newly engaged couple from the Murrells Inlet, SC area earlier this year. I will go into greater detail later in this post how I ended up catching the eye of Luciana & Ty, but they have picked the very lovely and private Wachesaw Plantation in Murrell's Inlet to get married on November 3, 2018. As the Charleston wedding DJ market has grown by leaps and bounds over the past several years, there has been little reason for me to leave the area. However, when a couple sees the value and reputation that I have achieved since being in business, I'll gladly travel anywhere. Murrells Inlet is one of the oldest fishing villages on the South Carolina coast, located about 80 miles north of Charleston, and about 10 miles south of Myrtle Beach.
