About

2021 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

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.

As an heirloom property featuring a recent restoration, The Gadsden House offers a seamless blend of historic character, contemporary elegance + modern amenities.

Four grand parlor rooms boast original heart pine floors, impressive floor-to-ceiling windows, beautiful fireplaces, crystal chandeliers + neutral “paper white” walls, as well as a sound system + adaptive climate control.

Three intimate courtyards showcase a mix of bluestone, Charleston brick + oyster tabby surfaces. Magnolias, crepe myrtles + palm trees create an intimate urban oasis. Custom tenting options ensure versatile use of the outdoor spaces, rain or shine.

Expansive Southern piazzas, complete with gas lanterns + traditional “haint blue” ceilings, offer views of the property’s lush courtyard gardens + Charleston’s waterfront.

A beautifully furnished bridal suite + handsomely appointed groom’s quarters allow for all day relaxation for the entire wedding party!

    Best of the Best at The Gadsden House

    I couldn't imagine having our wedding anywhere else! Everything about The Gadsden House and King Street Hospitality Group in top notch and truly unparalleled. We got married in November after postponing from April. The team at Gadsden House made changing our date as seamless and easy as possible. We used KSHG as our onsite coordinator and couldn't ask for a better group of planners. Sofie and Kathleen pay attention to every detail and always responded to emails very quickly. On my wedding day, they had calm energy and made sure everything went according to plan. They were there when you needed them and were always one step ahead to make sure not only me and my husband had what we needed but our entire wedding party and group of guests. Maddie was beyond helpful during the day in making sure I had water and lip gloss. I cant say enough about The Gadsden House and their team!

Behind the beauty is such an amazing team that makes sure the whole process from planning to the day of runs as smoothly as possible, I have never met such professional, kind people! Our wedding day would not have been the same anywhere else, I wish I could get married every day​ at The Gadsden House. The food was beyond amazing and we still have people talking about the bacon-wrapped shrimp! Do not miss out, book here!
