Patrick Properties Hospitality Group
The Patrick Properties Hospitality Group is actually a collection of venues, including Parcel 32, The William Aiken House, Lowndes Grove, The American Theater, and The River House. While all of the properties under their name are incredibly dreamy and romantic, we especially love The River House for a dreamy outdoor micro wedding. This location offers a casual, intimate space set underneath gorgeous oaks, topped off with incredible views of the Ashley River.
Their micro wedding package starts at only $2,000 (for 15+ people), and includes a 4 hour venue rental, brunch, lunch, or dinner a la carte, and tables and chairs. One look at their weddings gallery shows that these guys are no strangers to micro weddings, which is crucial when finding a venue that can make your perfect day happen. .
The Carolina Girl
If something unique and a little adventurous sounds like your cup of tea, then consider The Carolina Girl for your South Carolina micro wedding! This yacht provides an elegant setting coupled with breathtaking views.
Planning with this venue is seamless, and they’ve provided a complete list of preferred vendors that are familiar with the ins and outs of rentals and catering on a yacht setting.
And don’t think that you’ll have to sacrifice any element of your celebration just because it’s on the water. The Carolina Girl includes a ceremony area, dance floor, DJ system, reception area, and on-site accommodations. They also include tables, chiavari chairs, and lounge furniture.
Wild Dunes Resort
The Wild Dunes Resort is a perfect combination of Charleston charm coupled with beach beauty. These guys take care of just about every aspect of your big day, making planning effortless and even enjoyable.

You can also choose to make your wedding a complete getaway, and rent out a block of rooms for your guests. If something a little more unique is what you’re looking for, then consider their brunch wedding, which includes an epic brunch buffet along with a Mimosa or Bloody Mary bar (along with a 3 hour open bar and insanely discounted rental rate).
We love that their packages include the key vendors and essential details that you need, while still giving you the flexibility to let your own unique personality shine through.
North Corner Haven – The Farm
North Corner Haven’s Farm is a dreamy and lush venue that’s bursting with life and beauty. Their intentional spaces ensure that each portion of your celebration runs smoothly, and the easy flow between indoor and outdoor areas makes for a flawless event. A mix of the barn, farmhouse, and lawn provides areas for each portion of the event, while also paying attention to decor and ambiance.

With a wide variety of food selection, entertainment, and decor, you have the option to personalize your celebration with unique touches without the added stress. They even offer a farewell brunch for the morning after, so you can bring your perfect weekend to a proper close.
This venue boasts ‘ceremonies above the clouds’, and we’d say that this is a pretty accurate description of the magical chapel perched on the edge of Glassy Mountain. Couples will tie the knot at the glass-enclosed chapel, allowing your loved ones to admire the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains, and then move to The Cliffs at Glassy clubhouse for your reception.
The Cliffs is a unique micro wedding venue in that it provides the ‘wow’ factor with its breathtaking views, while also lending a feeling of intimacy. If the clubhouse isn’t quite what you’re looking for, there are additional reception spaces available across their seven mountain and lake club communities in the Western Carolinas.
