We booked our September 29, 2018 wedding at the Cottages on Charleston Harbor in February 2018. We contracted with the venue for more than $8,000 worth of accommodations, including the event space fee. We also signed a room block contract with the neighboring resort for our guests of $4,000.
In August 2018, I asked the Cottages to confirm if the dock between our reception space and the neighboring resort had been fully repaired and if we could use it for our photos. I was told that we could use the dock for photos before 4 p.m. because a concert would be taking place on the beach… That’s how we discovered a national touring indie rock concert had been booked, a double-header, at the exact same time and 10 feet away from our wedding.
The neighboring resort booked Moon Taxi with Ripe as an opener in July 2018 with Ears for Music (a concert promoter) and did not consult our wedding venue prior to booking.
The Cottages and the neighboring resort are two separate companies. ... Read moreThey had no written agreement in place, we had no legal opportunity to fight back. The “partnership” is extremely irresponsible.
We were told that they would surely solve the situation and waited a full week before being informed that they would not move or cancel the concert. Both properties offered to release us from our contract and we left. Forty days from our wedding and the amazing staff at another venue took us in. When I asked Lisa, general manager of the Cottages, to reimburse us for new wedding invitations and for the time spent moving 11 vendors, she directed me to the the neighboring resort as it was “completely their fault.”
We were not reimbursed by the neighboring resort.
responded with the following comments.
While it is true The Charleston Harbor Resort did book a concert over your dates - I immediately started dialog with the general manager at the resort to see how this could have happened. There is an approval process for all of the events held at the resort, and events have to be permitted by the Town of Mt Pleasant and our property approving is part of the process. I contacted the town and no permit had been approved; and they were willing to deny the permit. I called you from my vacation and shared this information with you-This was ten days after we both found out about the event. Prior to me leaving you pushed that you wanted to cancel, I told you I was also working with the town and I asked you to wait a few more days. I called you from my vacation and told you the town would deny the permit. You did not want your wedding with us. We thoughtfully allowed you out of your contract . You still used our exclusive caterer. It did take longer than a week to get information from the town. But you did not have to move this event, you chose to move this event. In good faith, and so your wedding would be wonderful, we allowed you out of your contract and refunded all monies paid to us.
