To anyone having a destination wedding in Charleston, this is the place for you! We had our ceremony and reception at the Rice Mill which made it easy for our guests. We worked with Eve and she was fantastic! She made everything so easy, from her flexibility to add things we had wanted to her quick responses to our many questions. The food is delicious and our guests raved about it. The staff was very nice and went out of their way to make sure everyone was happy. The staff made sure the wedding party got hors d'oeuvres and drinks when we were taking pictures after the ceremony. We highly recommend the Rice Mill to anyone having a wedding in Charleston!

The Rice Mill was the perfect venue for us, complete with a rustic look (exposed brick and tin ceilings) and a view of the marina, which made for the best sunset photos. Because the venue is so pretty, we didn't have to spend as much on decorations. Also, Eve was so helpful and patient with us through countless emails and phone calls to select food and set up a floor plan. Food must be catered through the venue, which made me nervous at first to limit our options, but it turned out to be really helpful to work through one vendor. (They also handled the chair and linen rentals for us too.) We heard so many compliments on the food and the crepes were so good that we skipped a cake and served a few flavors of crepes for dessert instead.
Overall, if this venue is in your price range, I would highly recommend it for it's beauty and the ease of working with their staff. The only downfall is that you can't safely walk from the venue to any of the hotels that are nearby so we hired shuttles for our guests.

We held our ceremony and reception at the Rice Mill in October. After looking at several venues in the Charleston area I am so glad we chose this location. We had the ceremony outside on the waterfront patio and moved over to the covered patio for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. We loved having everything in one location so no one had to drive anywhere since we had a lot of out of town guests. We used Good Food Catering and the food was outstanding! In the time since our wedding I have been told by everyone how wonderful the food was. They have raved about the Fried Turkey and gravy! The staff was all fantastic and made the evening perfect. I highly recommend the Rice Mill and Good Food Catering.

Jenna and her crew at the rice mill are absolutely fabulous! She was so quick to respond to me and help me with anything that I needed. We were constantly dropping by and asking questions and they were always so supportive and offering suggestions. The food, staff, and the venue are incredible. Our night couldn't have been more perfect or beautiful.

We got married at the Historic Rice Mill in February 2015. My now husband is a Chef and I am a Catering Manager so we had nothing but the highest expectations for our wedding day. Everything was perfect. We worked with Jenna who was so helpful, quick to respond to questions, flexible and accommodating. The food and service were outstanding and our guests raved about everything which means even more to us as many of them are chefs and in the food and beverage industry. I could not be happier with the entire process and outcome! If only it had not been so abnormally cold outside!!

Perfect venue for a reception of 100-150 people. The atmosphere was relaxed, the layout is comfortable, building has a classic look that needs little additional decoration (money saver!), and there is a beautiful marina view (great sunset pics!). The event staff was amazing and management was flexible and made the event easy to plan. The menu selection can't be beat! I had the wedding of my dreams and the Rice Mill in large to thank for it.
