Dana+ Chris

If the South Carolina State Museum isn’t already filled with wonderment with their creative and interactive exhibits, adding in a venue into their repertoire is the icing on the wedding cake! We love having the opportunity to cater any occasion at the Museum – from large corporate galas to elegantly romantic weddings! This season, we had the incredible opportunity to serve one of the loveliest wedding receptions for Dana and Chris on the terrace – which was a first for the Museum! With only their closest family and friends, Dana and Chris spent the evening dining under the stars and we can’t get over how perfect the evening truly became.

Venue Feature – Stone River

On this venue feature blog post, we want to highlight another one of our favorite venues in Columbia. With history and a blank canvas coming together, you can’t go wrong with this one! At Stone River, the ambiance of Columbia’s historic Congaree river coincides with the overall atmosphere, beginning with a stone fountain in the main entrance and continuing with a grand stone fireplace in the main hall. The interior continues to provide a natural setting with stone accents, stained concrete, beautiful wood floors and a neutral color scheme.

We’ve seen so many weddings take place within their walls and we LOVE the fact that Stone River has such a perfect, central location and truly is a blank canvas that brides can take full advantage of when designing their dream day. Check out a few of our favorite photos below for decorating ideas and different ways to utilize their space!

Fall Food Favorites

For the team at Southern Way, we can all agree that there’s something magical about the Fall season. If you were to ask any of us, we’d directly relate it to none other than food. With the change of season and most importantly, the arrival of the cooler weather, there’s something about our palettes that yearn for warmth and a finely executed savory meal. Think through your fall gatherings with family and friends and the intimate dinners followed by community around a crackling fireplace. These gatherings center around the warm, savory meal we mentioned earlier. With the kickoff of Fall, we’d like to share our personal favorite Fall menu items that leave our guests full of seasonal nostalgia.


Fried Brussel Sprouts
Made with local brussel sprouts, we flash fry this delicious menu item with sea salt and olive oil. It also pairs wonderfully with a spiced, roasted duck leg and a sweet, fruit-infused glass of Riesling.

Sweet Potato Biscuits with Ham
You can’t go wrong with the comforting appetizer. Made from local sweet potatoes, this combination of sweet and savory is just what you’ll be craving during a crisp evening dinner. Pair it with a robust Autumn Salad and warm mug of apple cider for dessert!


Now that you have a culinary vision of your next seasonal gathering, we’d love to help you expand on a family-style Fall feast. Come in to talk to us today about how we can perfect your event, from biscuit to sprout!
