We used Alhambra Hall as our reception venue. They were very accommodating with our requests, and allowed us to visit several times during the wedding planning. It is a beautiful space and we were very happy to have chosen Alhambra for our reception.
I booked this venue for our wedding reception. It is absolutely gorgeous with wood floors, lanterns hanging from the rafters, and a wrap-around porch. Perfect for a spring/summer wedding! The space has so much potential, and since it is already naturally beautiful, you don't have to go too crazy with decorations. It is also one of the most affordable venues in the Charleston area!
Alhambra Hall was the perfect venue for our spring wedding! Our ceremony was outdoors and the reception was inside... it was WONDERFUL to not have to make our guest travel from ceremony to reception and the backdrop (the water and marsh) was so on point around sunset. The guests loved it! At one point, more people were outside to catch the sun setting on the water than on the dance floor... Inside the reception area upstairs (they do have an elevator) you have beautiful lights and more than enough space. We had 135 guest and it was perfect for all the tables, food, a sitting area, the dessert table, DJ area, and two bars. We LOVE Alhambra Hall... I can't picture our wedding being anywhere else.
