About South Carolina Aquarium

Have a one-of-a-kind backdrop on your wedding day when you say your vows at South Carolina Aquarium; a venue located in Charleston, South Carolina. This aquarium, which is a non-profit organization, allows couples to be both in downtown Charleston and escape with their guests to an aquatic world filled with a variety of animal species on their wedding day.

Facilities and Capacity
Whether you want a small wedding of just 50 guests or a large wedding of up to 500 guests, the South Carolina Aquarium can accommodate all sizes of wedding ceremonies and celebrations. Couples and guests will be in awe of the many different animals, from the small purple sea urchin to the large and solitary sand tiger shark. With these animals as your backdrop (or the Great Ocean Tank or Charleston Harbor), you are sure to excite your guests and “cause as splash” on your special day.

Services Offered
The South Carolina Aquarium provides couples with an in-house events team to help plan and implement the wedding. However, weddings are not the only celebration you can experience here. You can also enjoy your rehearsal dinner or reception amidst the exotic sea life and panoramic waterfront views. If you prefer something a little more personal and special, the aquarium can provide services such as your personalized message being shared by the divers.

Other Services
In addition to helping plan weddings, the South Carolina Aquarium is happy to provide transportation conveniences for you and your guests. Couples and their wedding party will receive parking in addition to wheelchair access if needed.

I am so glad we chose to have our reception at the aquarium! It was fabulous! It's such a unique venue and all of our guests were super excited to attend (and had a wonderful time)! Margaret was so ... Read more easy to work with and open to any and all questions. Every picture we have inside and outside are beautiful, as it is such a beautiful setting. It's a unique layout and it does take some manipulating of tables, chairs, band but I think you can make anything work. We had 200 guests, partial seating, cocktail tables, 3 food stations , bars and band downstairs and there was plenty of room! It's a quick turnover time, which can seem stressful, but with a good team, everything was ready to go on time! Would highly recommend booking at the aquarium!

I also loved knowing that our money was ... Read more going to a good cause! The team of event coordinators at the aquarium is very responsive to questions and were extremely helpful throughout the planning process! The event package with an extra hour of time and the Photo Booth was worth every penny!!!
