Located in the heart of downtown Charleston, The Gadsden House is perfect for wedding ceremonies and receptions, rehearsal dinners, welcome parties and other social gatherings. Our beautiful parlor rooms, lush private courtyard gardens and open-air piazzas make our historic space one of the city's most sought-after venues.
Originally built in 1798, the Federal style Charleston manor is celebrated as one of the top ten historic properties to save in Charleston and underwent an elaborate restoration in 2015. With many of the property's architectural elements still intact, The Gadsden House overflows with Southern charm.
Four grand parlor rooms boast original heart pine floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, working gas fireplaces and beautiful gold mantle mirrors. Crisp and clean "paper white" walls paired with gorgeous crystal chandeliers and other modern finishes provide a beautiful blank slate while still offering plenty of character.
Three intimate garden courtyards with custom tenting capabilities offer versatile outdoor space regardless of rain or shine.
Wrap around double piazzas offer views of Charleston's waterfront, as well as a place for year round easy entertaining.
An onsite furnished bridal suite, complete with a full kitchen and full bath, allows for all day relaxation.
Ample parking is available in adjacent surface lots and nearby garages.
Our professional, knowledgeable and accommodating in-house catering and beverage teams offer unparalleled personalized service sure to make every moment delightfully enjoyable for you and your guests.

The moment I told my planner my vision for my wedding "Kate Spade in the Hamptons in the 20's" she immediately knew the Gadsen House would be the perfect canvas (secretly I had already fallen in love with the venue online). Kathleen's team is incredibly professional and detail oriented. We also used King Street Hospitality for our catering. All the guests loved the food and wine selections, which were elegantly presented to the tables in unison. They were very understanding of any special requests, including a gluten free meal, and even made sure that there would be the special ingredients available at the bar for my mom's personal favorite drink! The brides quarters upstairs was the perfect place to get ready and if there was any problems that day I was blissfully unaware. The venue does not come with any decor, which can make rentals a bit more expensive, but if you have a bright color scheme like our wedding than it's white walls, gorgeous wood floors, charming fireplaces, and sparkling chandeliers make the ideal backdrop. Wish I could do it all over again!
