Does anyone have any ideas of any venues that do both the reception and ceremony at the same place and are more informal and lend itself to NOT being sit down dinner places, or Plantation type Charleston homes or hotel banquet halls that is located right in Downtown Charleston or outside of it (would prefer downtown)?
I'm looking to have 200-225 guests and am looking for something more casual and not so "uppity" that allows people to walk around, socialize, and etc. We'd still have a few tables scattered throughout, but wanted our reception/ceremony to not be so formal and feel more like a "party." I was picturing cocktail tables, food stations spread throughout, people could go outside or inside, couch/nice lounge area, etc.
Thanks if anyone has any ideas you might be able to offer!!!! I appreciate it.
