Kathleen McCormick and her staff were absolutely wonderful! I planned my wedding but I needed a venue that would work with me and my needs since I also lived 3 hours away. Kathleen gave us a wonderful tour and was in communication with me the whole time. For my reception all I had to do was drop off the items to be set up and her staff set up the reception and broke it down after. The Ocean Terrace's location was absolutely beautiful! On the day of, we had dolphins swimming in the background. Guests not from Charleston loved it! Also, I was worried the day of the wedding because it was supposed to storm. The venue had a great backup plan, but Kathleen kept track of the radar and weather reports and gave me update every hour. Luckily the rain held off until after the reception and we ended up having a cool and beautiful ceremony on what was supposed to be a hot August day. Also, if you are planning to hold your wedding here, you will need to also order the food from the venue. However, the Raw Bar and sushi we had for cocktail was the highlight for my guests and the food was AMAZING! Make sure you get the Grouper (if you like fish), that was everyones favorite. Overall, great location, great staff, wonderful food. I HIGHLY recommend to Bride-to-be
The best decision I made in my entire wedding planning experience was the choice to get married on Seabrook Island. We wanted to chose a venue that we could revisit for years, and what a perfect place to do it. Our families stayed in seaside villas for the week, which made for such a calm and intimate pre-event experience. And when the time came for the big day, it was what dreams are made of... from the beautiful seaside ceremony, to the elegant club reception, to the fabulous work of Kathleen McCormack... everything was taken care of and everything was fabulous. I am a very "type A" person, and a perfectionist, so it is natural for me to think about what I could have done better. However, there is absolutely not one thing I would change about my entire wedding experience. There were two things that I heard over and over from guests: (1) that they had never seen me so happy and relaxed, and (2) the wedding was the most beautiful event they had been to in their lives. It truly was perfection, and I don't know what more a bride could ask for in a venue!
