  • Having our wedding at the Cedar Room made it unforgettable. With the exposed brick and large windows, it was the exact look we were looking for. Design was much easier because we loved the aesthetic of the venue so much. The food was absolutely delicious, and the people were wonderful to work with (we ended up getting two things that weren't even on the initial menu). They turned our wedding cake vision into a delicious reality. I couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else!

  • We had a fantastic wedding at the Cedar Room. We looked at this venue early because we've enjoyed the food at the affiliated restaurant downstairs (Mercantile & Mash) and love the aesthetic of this beautiful and historic space. We saved our date before we were engaged because we were sure it was right for us. Our guests (170 was a great number for the room, and it could certainly fit more) loved the space and the food. Many appreciated the historic note that "We Shall Overcome" became a civil rights anthem at this site. The catering team was great to work with. We asked for some modifications to the existing options and they were happy to accommodate. For example, we wanted to add a vegetarian slider, in addition to some of the sliders offered normally, and the chef asked if we were interested in a fried green tomato & pimento cheese one. We were and it was a hit among our vegetarian and non-vegetarian guests alike. Get the hot chicken app too!

  • 100% recommend the Cedar Room for your future event!! We had our cocktail hour, reception, and after party there last weekend and loved e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g about our experience. We planned our wedding in 6 months in Charleston, which seemed intimidating at first. People told us it couldn't be done. Graham and Renee instilled confidence in us that we could plan our dream wedding in such a short time frame and they were right! Graham helped us set the contract and Renee helped us select our food / beverage selections and then was there the day of the event. Thank you ladies, you rock!!! The Cedar Room stands out from other venues in many ways: - Sheer beauty, reclaimed design features, and the history of the cigar factory. We love a space that tells a story. - Large indoor space perfect for the winter wedding. Every other venue downtown requires a tent if you are having 100+ guests. - Outdoor patio was an ideal spot for cocktail hour and for guests to take a breather during ... Read more

  • The Cedar Room is the most amazing venue! As a bride obsessed with interior design, I enjoyed the opportunity to design my wedding entirely. But thanks to The Cedar Room (shout out to Renee!) and their close coordination with my wedding planner Bouquets and Bowties Charleston, my wedding was PERFECT! Renee was super responsive, and there for me all the day. The food was absolutely fantastic as well! They could even accommodate my funfetti wedding cake request! So grateful to all of my vendors who made being a bride in 2020 finally be stress free on my wedding day! Highly recommend the following vendors: Wedding Planner: Bouquets & Bowties Charleston Photographer: Southern Vintage Photography Videographer: Surrender Films Band: Night Years (they're based out of Raleigh but they are AMAZING) Makeup & Hair: Lashes and Lace (didn't have to start getting ready until 10:30am)

  • Amazing venue!! Awesome food!! Even better staff!! Absolutely recommend getting the Whiskey Bar and the Cigar Bar addition. Our Wedding Planner Blythe Hill worked wonderfully with Graham and Renee of the Cedar Room and nailed every aspect of the wedding. Also recommend the swinging chair addition as a great focal point for pictures at the reception. Our guests loved every minute of the celebration. Thank you so much.....

  • My husband and I got married at the Cedar Room last weekend and it was amazing! The food is outstanding, the venue is beautiful, and everyone we worked with was so nice and accommodating. Massive space with plenty room for all our guests and band. The bathrooms are also so nice! Wouldn't have thought about that, but we've been to weddings with some bad bathroom situations and it really puts a damper on things. Wouldn't change a thing about it and highly recommend!

  • The Cedar Room went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect! They even ended up letting us set up a few days early due to the hurricane. The space is open, airy and trendy with beautiful exposed brick and huge windows and the staff and food is INCREDIBLE. 10/10 would recommend for any event!

  • I found this venue online while planning my destination wedding and could not have been more pleased. When we first walked in after traveling to see it in person, my fiancé who had previously had no opinion on the wedding venue even said, this is it! It was amazing. Graham and Caitlin were amazing to work with. Dealt with all my questions and changes over the entire year we planned from states away. The day of my wedding was a dream! It was gorgeous, the staff did not let me go without food or drink, they were so kind and made sure I had whatever I needed at every moment. They took excellent care of us. It really was the wedding of my dreams! Also- the food! I have family reaching out to me letting me know it’s the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding- I completely agree!

  • From the moment we toured The Cedar Room, I knew without a doubt that I wanted our wedding reception to be held there! Our wedding reception could not have been more perfect! The venue itself is absolutely stunning and spacious to hold a good number of people! The staff was responsive and professional throughout the whole process. Caitlin was absolutely great the day of the wedding, and things ran so smoothly! Our guests are still raving about how great the food was, and how much they loved the venue! I would recommend this venue to any bride who is looking for a beautiful spacious indoor reception venue in downtown Charleston! Thank you Cedar Room for an unforgettable wedding reception :)

  • Planning a wedding from out of state was stressful. It was very difficult to make time for tastings and vendor meetings. Caitlin was always patient and kind with me, even when I sent a dozen emails with far too much detail. She always remained professional, patient and kind, and for that I am sincerely grateful for. We appreciated the Chef and the team accommodating our schedule to fit in our tasting. The team is wonderful and incredibly attentive. The team at The Cedar Room really help with coordinating your event and genuinely go above and beyond. The venue is beautiful and has enough space if you're worried about weather. It has a gorgeous courtyard that we had our ceremony. The food though... it was amazing! We love Charleston and wanted to share this beautiful city with our families from Boston and Mississippi so we chose Shrimp and Grits, a carving station and taco bar. Months later our families are still talking about how amazing the shrimp and grits were and the beef tende... Read more

  • The Cedar Room, Graham, and Caitlin were an absolute dream to work with. We held our wedding reception at the venue and it was beyond perfect. To start off, lines of communication with Graham and Caitlin were phenomenal. Every one of our calls, emails, and questions were always answered in a timely manner. Graham, Caitlin, and everyone at The Cedar Room have a special way of making you feel like your event is the only one they're working on. In terms of the venue itself, it was perfect! The set of up of the space was exactly what we envisioned and the staff were extremely friendly and polite. The appetizers, salad, and entrees were incredible as well. Our guest are still raving about the food that was served and how it was the best they've ever had at a wedding. Caitlin is extremely detail oriented, especially when it came to a couple small requests we had. We mentioned a family tradition where two of our grandparents love anchovies on their salad and that the groom and groom's fath... Read more

  • The Cedar Room was such an incredible wedding venue. From planning to day-of, the process couldn't have been easier. Graham and Caitlin were helpful in any request we had. The venue was absolutely stunning. We worked with Emily at Ooh! Events for planning, and the two made a great pairing. I can't say enough good things about both.

  • I highly recommend The Cedar Room to anyone looking for a wedding venue. The space is gorgeous and they have done such a great job renovating the space to be picture perfect while still preserving the unique feel of the old cigar factory. I loved everything from the high ceilings and huge windows to the wooden beams and the beautiful light fixtures. But The Cedar Room offers more than just a great physical space. Graham and Caitlin are wonderful to work with and they will make sure every detail of your event is perfect. And my friends will not stopping talking about the food we served at our wedding! Mercantile & Mash produces some of the most delicious food in Charleston. We couldn't have been happier with our choice to book The Cedar Room.

  • We fell in love with the Cedar Room the second we walked inside. How can you not? Exposed brick, wood floors and beams, and giant windows to fill the room with natural light - it was love at first sight! Then we walked out to the courtyard and I immediately saw myself getting married there with the red brick and greenery. It is seriously the perfect venue. Graham was flexible enough to show us the space with only a few days notice. We loved working with Graham and Caitlin and even decided to host our rehearsal dinner downstairs from the venue at Mercantile & Mash because we loved working with these ladies so much. They are professional and responsive, their venues are beautiful, and the food is DELICIOUS! We got so many compliments on the food for our wedding and rehearsal dinner - it was seriously incredible. They also have a bar downstairs from the venue which is where everyone went after our reception. It's the perfect little area for the entire wedding weekend and Graham and Ca... Read more
