The Rice Mill is a stunning venue that genuinely captures Charleston's beauty. We couldn't have asked for a better venue. Our guests gave us many compliments. The staff and our main coordinator at the venue, Eve, were incredible from beginning to end. Good Food Catering was delicious. There were many "foodies" at our wedding, so it was a tough crowd to please. Good Food Catering surpassed our already high expectations. Anytime our wedding is brought up, people still rave about the venue and the food. You can't go wrong with this venue!
We could not have asked for a better day for our wedding at the Rice Mill. The building itself is absolutely beautiful and speaks for itself. The space was set up perfectly and there were many options on how to be set up. We held our ceremony outside overlooking the water and the view was incredible. After the ceremony we moved inside for the cocktail hour and reception. Our guest raved about the food, especially the hors d'oeuvres. Eve, our coordinator, was wonderful. She was very helpful throughout the entire process. She was prompt and flexible. Our bartenders Becky and Eddie were also wonderful. A guest asked for iced tea, which they didn't have, and Eddie walked to the gas station next door to buy her some. We had our wedding on a Sunday in February and was very reasonable compared to other venues in Charleston. I definitely recommend the Rice Mill for any event!
