The Charleston Yacht Club is a beautiful wedding venue, located right on the Ashley River inside the City Marina. Capture beautiful photographs of your wedding party on the docks or make your big exit in a yacht at the end of your special night. This delightful venue is especially great for a summer occasion, with a breathtaking view of the water and a satisfying breeze.
The Flag Room is a banquet hall that measures 2,000 square feet and overlooks the Ashley River. It has hardwood floors, a vaulted ceiling, skylights, and cathedral windows. The vaulted ceiling looks especially dazzling with white lights strung through the wooden beams. The club’s rental rates for the Flag Room includes thirteen 6-feet rectangular banquet tables, ten 60-inch round tables, 6 tall cocktail tables, white linens, 125 white padded chairs, a full-service commercial kitchen for any final preparations your caterer of choice needs to make, a large and moveable bar, set-up and break-down, and a dishwasher. Rates for this room range from $1,000 to $1,950 depending on the day of the week.
The Charleston Yacht Club also features an outside deck of 1,000 square feet and a wrap-around porch, available for $500 an evening. All rental rates at the yacht club are for 5 hours, but additional hours are available for purchase at $200 per hour. Bartenders have a flat rate of $125 for the first bartender and $110 for the second, but these prices do not include supplies like alcohol, mixers, garnishes, cups, napkins, and straws. However, the club does provide coolers and ice upon request.
Although Charleston Yacht Club members receive a 50% discount, membership isn’t required for renting the facilities. Reservations do require a 50% deposit, and the remaining balance is due 30 days before your wedding. Parking in the City Marina lot is $2 an hour but credit and debit cards are accepted for payment.
Imagine slow dancing on the dock with your new husband or wife, basking in the glow of a waterside sunset and talking about your new life together. When no one else is looking and you’re tired of dancing, take your polished shoes off of those sore feet and dip them into the refreshing blue waters. Cast all of your cares into the wind, let them bounce off the sails of all those massive yachts, and watch them blow away into the night…for this is the first day of the rest of your life.

If you’re planning a wedding in Charleston, South Carolina, consider having the reception at the Carolina Yacht Club. This photogenic venue boasts beautiful scenery, such as a winding staircase that leads to a chessboard floor and the calming waters of the blue Charleston Harbor. The reception hall has stunning hardwood floors and a large, cozy fireplace that really pulls the room together. There are gorgeous crystal chandeliers and heavy mirrors with twisted frames, which really add to the brightness of the room when coupled with your white linens and the sun pouring through the large glass windows.
Guests will enjoy overlooking the ocean from a quiet porch, where a few small tables could offer a peaceful retreat from the liveliness of the party. The docking area would be a great background for photos, especially if the groomsman was enlisted in the Navy and dressed in his white uniform. Late into the night, the couple could escape the party with a romantic yacht cruise coupled with a bottle of champagne. At this venue, when the moon rises the glow echoes across the waves of the ocean like the scattering of diamonds. The view is sure to bring closure to the memorable night.
Because the venue is a private club, you must be a member in order to host entertainment there. The booking fee is $900, which doesn’t include the 18% service fee based on the final bill. If you plan to book your reception here, it is recommended that you book the event at least a year in advance. Private events can be held from mid-March until mid-May and again from the start of October to mid-November.
