The Venues at Riverfront Park

The Venues at Riverfront Park are nestled in the Historic Officers Housing District on the former Charleston Naval Base. They sit within Riverfront Park with sweeping views of the banks of the Cooper River. When the Charleston Naval Base closed in 1996, much of the property was turned over to the City of North Charleston. Each of the venues are within walking distance of each other and offer grand oak trees draped with Spanish moss, street lined azaleas, making them the optimum spot for weddings, rehearsals and many more of life’s special events. Not only is Riverfront Park home to the Greater Charleston Naval Base Memorial, but it is also a popular concert and festival venue. The park itself has an interactive water fountain and boardwalks to stroll along the River. Visitors can also go fishing from the Admiral’s pier or the wooden dock and take a scenic walk across our new Noisette Creek Pedestrian Bridge. Feel free to reach out about our availability for hosting your special event and we look forward to hearing from you soon! 

Our 2026 books are OPEN as of February 1st, 2024!!!

  • What happens if I plan an outdoor wedding and it rains?
    • We strongly recommend placing a tent on a hold with a rental company. In the event that a tent is not placed on hold, if no other events are scheduled and the full fee for the Chapel will be applied.
  • Can we create our own ceremony and reception decorations?
    • Yes! We invite you to personalize your wedding with your own decorations to make your day extra special. We do not provide any additional décor other than what is already in the homes.
  • Can we bring in some of our own food for the reception?
    • Absolutely! We do not have in house catering or bar services so you will need to bring in outside catering. They will need to provide proof of insurance and North Charleston Business License.
  • Can we add on additional hours to our rental?
    • We understand that it is hard to stop celebrating and they can go a little longer than planned. We are very strict on our lock up times, due to the fact, we want to ensure our staff make it home safely. If you choose to not have the house “Lock up ready”, you will not receive your damage deposit. However, if you are spending the night in one of our homes, you can party until morning!
  • Will someone be on site for my wedding/event?
    • Yes, event staff will be on site throughout your day. Please keep in mind that they are not coordinators and will not be responsible for accepting rentals or the set up and break down of your event.
  • Do you require a wedding coordinator?
    • Yes. To ensure your event run smoothly, we do require at least a day-of coordinator. We have a great list for you if you are having a hard time finding the right fit!
  • Can we have a rehearsal there? What is the cost?
    • We do offer a complimentary 2 hour rehearsal the day before your event, IF the venue is available.
  • Do you provide tables and chairs?
    • We do not provide any rentals. You will have to go through a 3rd party company.
  • Are pets allowed?
    • We love our furry friends! Pets are allowed to join any outdoor ceremonies. We do however, ask that they find another place to celebrate after. No pets are allowed inside the venues at anytime.
