"Dear Spirit Staff, this past Sunday was such the perfect afternoon. Those Shrimp & Grits were to die for! You made my daughter's bridal shower brunch cruise an event none of us will ever forget. My only complaint is that it wasn't longer. Time flew by.

Thank you again"

The Most Memorable Weddings Are On Lake Murray

A celebration of love aboard the Spirit of Lake Murray is like none other.  Gliding across the smooth waters of Lake Murray in the heart of beautiful sunny South Carolina, a couple’s wedding vows are spoken with the beauty of nature surrounding them.  Imagine a morning wedding with the sun low in the eastern sky,  the “I do’s” spoken on the rear upper deck as the guests sit, listen and watch... the wide sparkling waters of the lake beyond the bridal couple, sailboats and islands dotting the horizon, birds soaring above.  Envision a sunset wedding with the colored splashes of a glorious sky reflected in the lake and enveloping the bride in soft pastels... perhaps catching the spark of her diamond... guests seated on the upper rear deck  for the ceremony sit stunned by the beauty of the moment. 

Wedding Receptions on the Spirit of Lake Murray

Ask people about wedding receptions they’ve attended and most can’t remember one hall from the last... but they always remember the wedding reception they spent aboard the luxury charter yacht Spirit of Lake Murray!  No matter which church or synagogue hosts the wedding ceremony, the Spirit is an easy drive for guests from anywhere in Greater Columbia, Lexington, Irmo, Aiken, Augusta, Greenwood & other Midland's locations. Just minutes from I-20. Located conveniently at the easy to find Hollow Creek Marina on Highway 378, in Lexington County.  Designed for a perfect party, the main salon is set with dining tables, a bar and a central buffet table.  The upper deck includes an enclosed salon with tables and an outdoor patio deck aft.  Plenty of space to accommodate your band or DJ.  The boat is enclosed and runs in almost all weather. For a Wedding Reception Cruise we can hold 120 people comfortably. The ship can comfortably seat 80 people over the various decks & cabins.

General Wedding Information

  • Wedding Ceremonies are usually held on the upstairs outdoor back deck patio. The back deck is partially covered.
  • Download the Wedding Packages for more information.
  • Below you will also find a Wedding Information Sheet that can be downloaded and printed.

Wedding Ceremonies Less Than 70 people

  • Due to spacing and set up during a ceremony, the upstairs back deck only has enough room for about 70 people comfortably.  About half of those can be seated.

Wedding Ceremonies More Than 80 People

  • Wedding Ceremonies for 70 or more people can be done however, a few steps have to be made.  1) You will need to have half of your guests downstairs on the main level, while the other half are upstairs on the back deck. 2) You will need to hire a videographer to live stream the wedding to a TV on the main deck. We have a couple people we can recommend to do this for you.
