by Sherra Meyers

Celebrating 170 years, the The Mills House has been one of Charleston’s beautiful landmarks since 1853. Its iconic pink facade adorns the historic Meeting Street, but there’s more inside to discover, like the beautiful greenery, antique fountains, pool terrace,and grand balconies that overlook Meeting Street. The Mills House has a completely renovated, modern aesthetic, with a blend of pastel colors, marble, and sleek finishes. The terraces provide stunning photographic backdrops for your wedding pictures, whether taken before, during, or after the ceremony. If you’re staying at the hotel,the Magnolia Suite is a traditional favorite, with a beautiful view of the city streets and easy access to outdoor amenities.


The Mills House offers nine distinct venues to host your wedding ceremony, each with a capacity of 75 to 200 guests. These venues feature open terraces, elegant chandeliers, grand architecture, soft color
palettes, and statuesque pillars that create a truly magical atmosphere for your special day. If you’re looking for an intimate ceremony, the Meeting Street Terrace is an excellent choice with its open-air terrace overlooking Meeting Street. Alternatively, the Pool Terrace is perfect for an elegant sunset wedding, boasting gorgeous iron archways and a brownstone pool deck aesthetic that stands out against the iconic backdrop of the pink hotel.

They serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and brunch on the weekends – all featuring delightful twists on Southern cuisine made with locally sourced ingredients. Additionally, the Terrace Bar by the pool is an ideal spot to relax with a cocktail or enjoy sunset drinks before heading out to explore the various attractions that Charleston has to offer.
