Celebrate Something Fabulous at: Windows on the Waterway

“Let’s see. Night. Dubounce Botanical Gardens. White, silk tents thin enough to see the stars. Candlelight. Wedgewood. Exotic waringin trees imported from Bali. I’m thinking Gatsby. Not a period wedding, but the spirit of it, the time.”—The Wedding Planner.

This is just a quote from a Hollywood movie about planning weddings, but it is not far from a reality when it comes to available wedding venues on Hilton Head Island. We are celebrating Windows on the Waterway, the exclusive waterfront location in Hilton Head Plantation that is perfect for any reason to entertain.

Like an artist’s canvas, Windows on the Waterway is the ultimate all-inclusive palette to build any theme for your wedding, anniversary, reunion, corporate event, holiday party—and the list goes on. From The Great Gatsby soiree to the perfect indoor or outdoor sunset wedding to the largest corporate Lowcountry boil, you can create your dream gala and never lift a finger.

From the second you walk up the stairs and through the double doors, you get a sense of elegant southern architecture that is both inviting and private. The atmosphere is that of a large, windowed waterfront home, except you won’t worry or stress about bothering surrounding neighbors with laughter and live music. Whether you want to invite 10 of your best friends or 350 of your closest associates, Windows on the Waterway can accommodate them all.

The indoor portion of the venue offers a chef’s kitchen, intimate bridal room, indoor lounge with custom built-in bar and large dining room leading out to the plantation-style porch. The inside of Windows is perfect for seated dinners, buffets, food station-style affairs or cocktail receptions. The outside features spectacular views of the Intracoastal Waterway and Pinckney Island. The wrap-around porch leads to a large manicured lawn that leads right to the water’s edge. The lawn is perfect for sunset wedding ceremonies or can be equally appealing for casual cocktail receptions, oyster roasts and can even be tented to further enhance your theme.

Windows is boat accessible with a long dock available for farewell cruises or making a grand entrance. The ambiance is priceless and the design, production and planning is taken care of by the event planners at Celebration Events Catering.

The executive chefs offer custom tailored menus for any event or theme. Cuisine options as well as décor are endless. From linens to floral arrangements, unique lighting options and musicians, Windows on the Waterway event planners can do in 10 minutes what one client alone would need months to accomplish.

Many have said that Windows on the Waterway has an understated elegance with moss-draped oaks, surrounding nature and unmatched sunsets. It’s a unique venue in that it really does start as a blank canvas that can be transformed into anything you dream. Events of all types are held at the location year round. Book your event now by visiting or by calling (843) 689-7526.

“Please know that we were delighted with our event at Windows. The night truly was special and exceeded our expectations. The venue, staff and cuisine were first class. You all allowed us the pleasure of truly enjoying the occasion with loved ones, because you tended to every detail with attention and sensitivity. Thanks, especially to YOU for tolerating my nerves, doubts, questions, disorganization and neurosis. You are a real trooper and were especially patient and professional at every twist and turn. We enjoyed you! Thanks for everything.” —Vivienne Nichols, Chattanooga TN.
