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.

This venue was so beautiful and versatile! I initially wanted a beach wedding but then saw this place along the water, with the exposed brick and pretty tin ceilings and changed my vision for it. It also basically has a built in back-up plan in case of rain (there is a covered patio in addition to an uncovered patio), which we almost had to rely on for my wedding.

I worked mainly with Jenna. She was so nice and professional. I felt like I sent way too many emails about changing the menu and bar service... each time she would have to draft a different proposal with the changed costs... but I never felt like she was annoyed or anything.

We chose the Gourmet Mac and Cheese bar and it was a HIT. Everyone raved about it at our wedding. My father also said their pecan crusted chicken was the best chicken he had in his life. A groomsmen said it was so crispy yet juicy inside. (I don't eat meat so I'm relying on their comments for that!).

The staff was fantastic. They brought me and my bridesmaids a fruit and cheese platter while waiting for the ceremony to start and they heard me make a comment that I was afraid guests might be able to see me before the ceremony and brought over several folding screens which made me feel way better. They also brought me and my husband(!) hors d'oeuvres while taking pictures outside, and food to our table so we didn't have to get up. I feel like they went above and beyond to make us comfortable.

I also feel like everything was super reasonably priced compare to everywhere else I looked at, especially for the bar prices. My only negative was that I got charged a $250 cleaning fee for a guest who threw up in the bathroom. A friend of ours who worked as a hotel event manager said he thought that was pretty steep - so keep an eye on your friends!

Overall, if I could go back and do everything over I would still choose the Rice Mill.

Jenna DeSavino and her team at the Rice Mill were amazing to work with throughout my entire wedding. She was warm, friendly and always responded in a timely manner anytime I had questions. They were incredibly flexible on the day of as we had to have multiple backup plans in case of rain. The day turned out beautiful and so did our wedding. Her staff was extremely attentive to all of our guests, not just me and my husband. Everyone raved about the food, the venue, but also the incredibly hospitable staff. I would highly recommend this venue for weddings, rehearsal dinners or any party for that matter. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day!

Jenna was wonderful in making our wedding day absolutely perfect! In the months leading up the event, she was extremely responsive to all my emails and questions, and made very helpful suggestions. She and the entire staff are very experienced, and were happy to accommodate requests. The venue was fantastic - we did both the ceremony and reception at the site so our guests wouldn't have to travel. Due to a last minute change, we had to move the ceremony to the outdoor deck under the awning and the staff handled it beautifully. The food was great, too! We highly recommend the grilled salmon station - it was a favorite with our guests. Another thing I really liked is she handled all our vendor orders for us, and was very familiar with what would work in the space and what wouldn't. I would highly recommend Jenna and Good Food Catering's services to any bride!

The Rice Mill and Good Food Catering were AMAZING to work with! All the guests at my wedding commented on how friendly and helpful the staff and bartenders were and I had a great experience working with Jenna to coordinate the event! As soon as we stepped off the trolley we were literally chased down by two servers with drinks and appetizers. Hands down the best service of any wedding I've been to. :)

We just had our destination wedding at the Historic Rice Mill last weekend and it was beautiful & fun! The venue is gorgeous with exposed brick, a huge dark wooden bar, and white tin ceiling. It was an overcast rainy day so we had our ceremony under the covered deck side which was able to fit our 105 guests in a cozy way. We then did pictures on the covered deck as well. So I was relieved I went with a venue that was rain-proof vs some of the other venues I had looked at. The food by Good Food Catering was also delicious and our guests raved about it.
We couldn't have been happier with how things turned out.

The Historic Rice Mill was the PERFECT place for my daughter’s wedding reception. Jenna was wonderful to work with and very patient with all the little nuances and difficulties of this particular wedding. She was always very positive and helpful. Good Food Catering’s food quality was up to its usual high standards and its presentation perfect. The staff was professional, even the young lady who was inundated with guests at the very popular Oyster Shooter bar. The Rice Mill itself is that perfect backdrop for a romantic Charleston event. The water front view and patio made for some fabulous sunset pictures!! Add in the fabulous décor and flowers from Branch Design Studio, the great music of Permanent Vacation and the wedding coordination talent of Amanda Lewis and it was really a magical night for the bride and groom. Thank you to Jenna and all her staff!
