About

The Charleston Event Center is a classic Southern Mansion style venue. The banquet facility is decorated to highlight the building's historic, hospitable feel with warm, rich colors and various textures of wood and brick. The Parlor, Mezzanine, Ballroom, and Veranda are stunning spaces all in their own rite.

Guests will be enchanted on the Veranda gazing out over the pond with an old fashion dock and row boat. The Veranda is a favorite spot so we can transform it throughout the event to accommodate ceremonies, cocktail hours, and late-night mingling by the fireplace.

The Ballroom features beautiful elegant chandeliers, classic white pillars, and French doors that walk out to the Veranda, beckoning all of your guests.

The first floor Parlor and upper Mezzanine levels provide a stunning first impression, welcoming guests for socializing with large windows overlooking the romantic pond.

Throughout the grounds, the rope swing and natural tree arches provide beautiful nature-filled vignettes for your photos.

What brides love most is the impressive bridal suite with all the southern charm your heart can take!

    The Charleston Event Center is such a gorgeous venue! I had to find a new ceremony site 2 months before my wedding and Pam, the wedding coordinator, was fantastic. She was very responsive from the beginning and so accommodating. She will work hard to exceed your expectations! One of the many great features of this venue is the stunning Bridal Suite. It is elegant and functional. My hair and makeup artist were impressed. It was also a great place to relax and enjoy my friends and family.
    Not only is the building beautiful, the landscaping is gorgeous, no matter the season! My guests were impressed.

    We absolutely loved our daughters wedding at the new Charleston Event Center in White Bear Lake. The venue is so beautiful. Our daughters walk down the grand stairway unto the veranda was breathtaking. The gardens, pond, and stone kept our wedding so elegant, warm, and memorable. Lorah and Pam, the coordinators, helped us during the planning stages and Pam helped make our day flawless. Our guests had a wonderful time and commented on how beautiful the wedding was. It was perfect.
