Harborside East was the PERFECT venue to have our wedding ceremony and reception!!! It is right on the Charleston Harbor with a gorgeous view and great breeze. We had 250 people at our ceremony and they fit perfectly in the ceremony area. The lawn is manicured to perfection and has several beautiful palm trees. The Charleston Harbor and impeccable landscaping made for amazing photos! There is also plenty of parking which is a huge plus! The reception area is right upstairs which is really nice. There is an inside area and an outside patio which is partially covered. The set-up is spectacular! We tented the outside area of the patio which was really nice. The price was very reasonable (especially compared to other places in town) and you can use your own caterer and bar service which is great! The building manager is very helpful. I only have wonderful things to say about this venue. If you have your wedding events here you will be more than impressed. — Shannon - bride
