Choose your venue
There’s a perfect location for every type of ceremony or reception. Small and intimate or large and extravagant, these award-winning wedding venues will provide the perfect backdrop for your nuptials.
The Dunes House
This special, 800-square-foot Hilton Head wedding venue provides expansive views of the ocean, while its adjoining 1,000-square-foot deck allows wedding guests to enjoy cocktails alfresco.
The Dunes House can accommodate up to 120 people, but can also be set up for much smaller events.
The Dunes House Intimate Reception Room
For a more budget-friendly Hilton Head wedding venue, guests can choose to use the inside room location at The Dunes House.
The Dunes House inside room would be ideal for a small, intimate wedding or dinner party as space is limited.
Centre Court Pavilion
This all-in-one wedding venue is designed to accommodate a wedding reception for up to 120 guests.
Bright and airy, this 1,628-square-foot wedding venue can be apportioned using moveable walls. Its covered, open-air dining pavilion is ideal for casual wedding luncheons or casual dinner buffets.
Arthur Hills Golf Course
The award-winning Arthur Hills Golf Course at Palmetto Dunes provides a beautiful wedding backdrop featuring outstanding scenery.
This championship course, built on rolling dunes, provides ocean breezes and a picture-perfect setting for your special day.
Historic Hilton Head Rear Range Lighthouse
The Hilton Head Island Rear Range Lighthouse is located in the Leamington neighborhood of Palmetto Dunes Resort overlooking the Arthur Hills Golf Course.
It was built between 1879 and 1880. Although the faux lighthouse at Harbour Town, on the southern end of Hilton Head Island, is more widely known, the Hilton Head Rear Range Light is the island’s one true lighthouse. A ceremony and cocktail hour for 120 guests can be planned at this location, with a reception at the Arthur Hills Clubhouse. Learn more about the lighthouse here.
Alexander's Restaurant & Wine Bar
Alexander's Restaurant & Wine Bar is the perfect lagoon-side setting for a wedding brunch, rehearsal dinner or intimate gathering of wedding party guests.
You can enclose the porch with the lagoon view for seating of up to 40 or reserve the entire restaurant for a maximum of 120 guests.
Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina Pavilion
Ideally located at the beautiful Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina, this brand new marina covered pavilion accommodates up to 150 guests and offers stunning views of the Intracoastal Waterway.
This alfresco location is perfect for both casual and formal wedding events and will leave your guests in awe as they take in the gorgeous marina sunset view.
