About Us

The Southern Patriot is the perfect backdrop for that ‘wow factor’ you expect for your special day. Our historic and unique venue will delight you and your guests as your nautical wedding unfolds before them, while cruising on beautiful Lake Murray. Enjoy the convenience of your wedding and reception together in a comfortable setting so you don’t lose one minute of celebrating.

For those intimate weddings of 60 guests or less, the Southern Patriot gives you the freedom to design your ceremony to your expectations.  Your wedding cruise will be as individual as you are.  Join our Captain and Crew to start your ‘forever’ onboard the Southern Patriot.   Several of our captains are also licensed to marry you on board, so be sure to let us know if you would like to add this special touch. 

Break away from the traditional ceremony and location.  This memorable venue will provide treasured memories and photos for you, your guests and generations to follow.  Imagine how impressed your children will be, as they page through your wedding album, and see you were married on this beautiful historic vessel on Lake Murray, South Carolina.
