About The Gadsden House

Located in the heart of Downtown Charleston, full of southern charm + rich history, The Gadsden House is the perfect venue for wedding ceremonies + receptions, rehearsal dinners, welcome parties + farewell brunches.

    Excellent!

    The Gadsen House was a stunning venue and such a charming and versatile space. We attended during a summer wedding and had cocktail hour on the top floor that opened to a deck with gorgeous views and dancing under a tented space. Cocktail hour and dinner were also served indoors alongside a beautiful interior - the space is adaptable to a range of events and seasons. The food was delicious and the staff was extremely attentive in keeping every aspect of the evening moving smoothly. Would absolutely recommend this venue!

    Dream Venue

    We had the best day of our lives in large part to the Gadsden House and its staff. We looked at a multitude of venues and the romantic feel of the home coupled with the southern charm of the veranda and courtyard made it the perfect Charleston venue for us. However, what blew us away was the responsiveness of Sofie and Kathleen - how they catered to every request we had- and the waitstaff the day of. We are still getting comments from guests about the how amazing and professional they were. They truly helped make our southern, black tie wedding come alive. Could not recommend this venue enough!!
