Bostwick Pavilion Moss Creek Wedding:
This Hilton Head wedding venue may be a hidden gem, and I fell in love with it as soon as I arrived! Say your vows in a private, gated community under a large live oak tree with a view of the deep marshes. The Bostwick Pavilion is located inside the Moss Creek Community, although it’s unnecessary to be a member to get married here. One of the nice things about this venue is that it’s located before the bridge to get onto the island, so there’s no need to be concerned about traffic.
This setting is stunning! Once you are married, your guests can enjoy cocktail hour on the large deck overlooking Mackay Creek and the community’s marina. Depending on your guest list and the weather, you can sit people inside and outside for dinner. Enjoy your first dance with the water behind you and string lights overhead, making it a romantic spot.
They do have in-house catering, but you can also request using an outside caterer. If you want to see what a wedding day can look like here, check out Erica and Trip’s wedding on a chilly spring day! There is also a Clubhouse at Moss Creek where you can get married if you want your events to be inside. It is currently getting renovated, and from the inspiration I’ve seen, it will be beautiful!
