You’ll have a variety of beautiful locations to choose from for both your wedding ceremony and reception at The Cloister. This Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel has three locations for ceremonies: The Cloister Chapel, The Cloister Garden and The Beach Club Lawn. The charming chapel, which sits under a red-tile roof and has a façade that’s partially covered with ivy, can accommodate up to 75 guests. The Cloister Garden offers a larger space, for about 200. The Beach Club Lawn is right in the middle, a picturesque space overlooking the Atlantic Ocean that has room for around 150 people.
While you’ll have three spots for your wedding ceremony, you’ll have even more options for your reception. The largest venue is the Cloister Ballroom, which can fit 375 for plated dinners and 400 for strolling receptions. The Cloister Clubroom can accommodate 90 plated dinners and 120 for a cocktail reception. The Cloister Wine Cellar is an intimate venue that seats 20 people for a plated dinner, while the Oglethorpe Room can seat up to 40 people. The Ocean Room & Courtyard is a gorgeous space at The Cloister Beach Club that can accommodate 90 guests for plated dinners and up to 150 for the cocktail option. Among all these choices, you’ll find the right wedding venue for you at the Sea Island hotel.
