The Historic Rice Mill is located in Downtown Charleston at 17 Lockwood Dr #101. Built in 1861, the mill has a rich history and is one of the only three original antebellum rice mills that still stand today in Charleston. This venue has a perfect view of the beautiful Ashley River which is an amazing backdrop to have for a truly Charleston style wedding.
”Classic design features include exposed brick, wide plank wood floors, large double windows, and pressed tin ceilings. The beautiful mahogany and marble bar is well suited for entertaining, while the adjacent dance floor area naturally lends itself to live music and dancing.” The building offers three options for a wedding ceremony, outdoor waterfront, under the oaks, and the marina room. The outdoor waterfront option is suitable for 150 people, under the oaks for 250 people, and the marina room for 80 people.
There are also three options for the wedding reception: seated dinner or buffet, cocktail style reception, or marina room seated dinner. The seated dinner or buffet option fits 200 people, 300 people in the cocktail style reception, and 70 people in the marina room seated dinner option.
The Historic Rice Mill also offers Good Food Catering as its exclusive caterer for any event. Good Food Catering brings classic Charleston favorites to life, such as pomme frites, fish tacos, and shrimp and grits. They have a wide range of meal choices that can be utilized for any occasion.
This venue is certainly a favorite of all of us at Eventfully Yours. It paints a perfect picture of the Charleston lifestyle. From the exposed brick to the waterfront view to the fantastic food, the Historic Rice Mill is a taste of the Holy City!
