The level of service throughout Charleston Place was first class! That is also the description I would give for our wedding coordinator, Jessica. From our first conversation through the day of our daughter's wedding, I knew we were in good hands! Her style is welcoming, professional, and at the same time, personal. Jessica is very observant, handled every question or need we sent her way and did so efficiently , and gracefully,. By the end of our journey, I knew I could count on her for anything and she would do her best to make it happen, and she did just that! Planning a wedding from a distance could've been a disaster, instead, it was delightful. We were her clients and yet I felt more like a friend by the day of the wedding, that is first class service!

From the vibrant, exquisite floral arrangements and decadent food to the brilliant ambiance of the Riviera Theatre, Charleston Place was a dream come true. The five-star staff was professional, courteous, and attentive - going above and beyond to ensure the top-of-the-notch customer service for every guest that graces the hotel. Elizabeth with BLOOM was fantastic! She was responsive, collaborative, and had a great attention to detail with our floral arrangements. We worked frequently with Special Events Manager Jessica Smithson who was just brilliant. My husband and I experienced quite a few "quirks" in our planning process leading up to our wedding day, and Jessica expertly guided us step-by-step with ease. Because of Jessica, we were able to embrace our beautiful wedding weekend completely stress-free. Our wedding at the Charleston Place will forever be embedded in our hearts. Thank you Jessica and Elizabeth for making our dreams into a reality.

My wedding day was perfect and the team (especially Jessica & Elizabeth) made sure of that! From the day we signed the contract until after the wedding, Jessica has been very responsive and helpful. She made sure that I got what I wanted and helped me plan. Although it was cold, I still had the ceremony outside by the fountain and it was beautiful. The decorations I chose were simple, but elegant. I (and everyone that came) absolutely loved the Riveria. It is a great location and not much needs do be done decorating wise since the room is already beautiful. The food was AMAZING and I am still getting complients on it, as well as the service at the tables. Bloom made the centerpieces and flowers look wonderful and I cannot wait to see what they look like in pictures!! You will not have any doubts when you book your wedding through Charleston Place Hotel. The experience was wonderful and non-stressful!

The Charleston Place made my big day better than I could have ever imagined! Their staff truly went above and beyond what I envisioned. Jessica Smithson is incredibly sweet, genuine, and helpful. She thought of perfect little touches to make the wedding special, and she made sure I was comfortable every step of the way. Elizabeth Jones and the rest of the Bloom team did an amazing job translating my color and decor vision into reality. Elizabeth is so knowledgable, and I felt completely comfortable entrusting the decor to her. To this day, I still have guests raving to me about the delicious food that the Charleston Place provided. I HIGHLY recommend the macaroni and cheese bar. Your guests will go nuts for it! I truly could not have asked for a more perfect day! Thank you, Charleston Place!

I cannot say how pleased we were with our wedding at Charleston Place. We worked with Jessica Smithson and she was beyond amazing! We planned our wedding from Boston and I never had any doubts we were in good hands with Jessica. It was worth every penny - the service, the food, the location. Our guests had a great time and we'll never forget our time there. LOVE!

Charleston Place Hotel is so elegant and charming! We used Market Street Circle for the ceremony and even though it was outside, we still felt a strong sense of privacy thanks to the staff that made it happen! Our cocktail hour and reception where at the Palmetto Cafe and Courtyard which didn't require much decor since the space is so beautiful on its own. Beside the quality of service was amazing. The hors d'oeuvres and our food were delicious and everyone on the wait staff was incredibly courteous and on their toes all night.

Our wedding was perfect! My husband and I are so pleased with all the services we received at the Charleston Place Hotel. We worked with Jessica Smithson and Elizabeth Klumb, and they did an amazing job! They are very organized and professional. I was very happy that they set up and tear down absolutely everything. Our ceremony was outside at Market Street Circle at 10:30 in the morning. We had a brunch to follow from 11am-2pm. The food was absolutely delicious. We still have guests telling us how beautiful the venue was and how great all the food was. Elizabeth did all of the flowers for the bridal party and reception. They were absolutely beautiful and exactly what I wanted. We are from out of town and so were all of our guests, so it was a destination wedding for everyone. We started working with Jessica and Elizabeth via phone and email about 6 months prior to our wedding date. I felt that they made the planning process so much better. They alleviate small details, such as making sure the venue is clean and ready, and making sure guests make it from the ceremony to the reception. Because they take care of everything at the hotel, my husband and I were able to focus more on pre-wedding details like guest room gift bags, wedding attire, music, etc. Charleston is the perfect vintage historical town to get married in! There are so many activities for your guests to do during down time. And we've never had a bad meal in the entire city --- Charleston cuisine is AMAZING!

Frankly, I don’t know where to begin. My experience with Charleston Place Hotel and its staff has been nothing less than wonderful.

Jessica Smithson is a delight and the ultimate professional. Courteous, respectful, responsive and helpful. As a “first time (and last!)” MOB, Jessica helped me navigate the often difficult waters of planning my daughter’s dream wedding. Her patience, knowledge and honesty made wedding planning completely “non-stressful.” We knew when we chose CP for the wedding, we’d be getting top-notch food, customer service and décor, and your staff did not disappoint.

Elizabeth Klumb from Bloom is also terrific. High energy, informative and she was always available to help me make the right decisions. The décor and flowers for the wedding were dramatic, elegant and brought my daughter’s vision to life. Elizabeth was a huge part of this. Elizabeth worked with me on many proposals to get everything just right. When my husband and I saw the ballroom for the first time Saturday afternoon, I almost cried-- it was so beautiful. In fact, some ladies celebrating a friend’s 50th birthday peeked in and were awed by the room’s décor. And, of course, our guests could not have had a better time.

Danielle Matesi was great to work with and always called me before making any charges to my account. A truly delightful person.

The entire banquet staff was incredible. Guests mentioned their servers by name and how attentive they were to everyone’s needs. Again, the food was beyond description. People are still emailing me about how delicious everything tasted.

By the way, the bride and groom had the best time of their lives. Their friends, too. The superlatives keep going—best wedding ever, best food, amazing flowers, great waitstaff, etc.
Everyone who attended the wedding (except us) came from out of town, and many stayed at Charleston Place. What a wonderful introduction to Charleston and a great experience all around.

In December of 2011 I contacted Jessica Smithson at the Charleston Place Hotel to plan my May 2012 wedding. She was so friendly and helpful and by January we were all set and in full planning mode. Not only did she make planning my dream wedding easy, she made it so much fun. I also cannot say enough wonderful things about Elizabeth from Bloom. Any ideas I brought to either one of them were met with full enthusiasm. Elizabeth made flower and decor sound so simple and Jessica pulled together the most wonderful menu and the perfect setting at the Market Street Circle! When the day of came around it all went so smooth and so perfect- and I do mean perfect. We had a wonderful banquet staff (you honestly never knew they were there until you needed something) and then it seemed like they just magically appeared. When my husband and I got back to our beautiful and spacious junior suite at the end of the evening there was a chilled bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries waiting, along with a sampling of all the desserts from the wedding we had not had a chance to try because we were too busy socializing and dancing. I would highly recommend Charkeston Place Hotel for a wedding venue. The following morning we had breakfast in the Palmetto Cafe and the service was top notch. It was so hard to same room that had held our wedding reception the night before had been transformed back to a dining space in so few hours. The staff at Charleston Place Hotel- from the bellman when we checked in and mentioned we were here for our wedding- to staff at the front desk at checkout were absolutely the best to work with.
