The Palmer Building is a historic wedding venue located in Charlotte, North Carolina. This all-inclusive property is a one-stop shop for all your wedding needs. Steeped in history and surrounded by natural beauty, this venue offers an idyllic setting for a romantic wedding experience.

Facilities and Capacity

The Palmer Building dates back to the late 1930s during President Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration. It was originally used to train firefighters, and many firefighters aided in the construction. The building was lovingly restored in recent years, placing it on the National Historic Registry. It retains many original features, including its stunning stone walls, cozy fireplaces, and wooden floors. Ceremonies are hosted outdoors on their beautiful stone steps before a grand open fireplace. After you exchange vows, you might slip away for your portrait session while your guests mingle over cocktails on the lush green lawn. After that, you can have a reception with up to 200 seated guests and 250 standing in the 3,800-square-foot Fireman’s Hall. Elegant white drapes and neutral interiors make this space a perfect blank canvas for personalized festivities. With ample room for dancing and your evening entertainment, it is the perfect location for an unforgettable wedding celebration.

The Palmer Building offers a wide range of wedding packages tailored to your needs, tastes, and budget. Their in-house planning team can assist with everything from choreographing your schedule of events to recommending vendors and communicating with them on your behalf. Their talented catering team provides a variety of tasty dishes which their dedicated staff will serve. Multiple bar options are also available on-site. Set up, clean-up, parking, and use of chairs, tables, and linens are included in the reception fee.

Excellence Above Excellence

Mrs. Gretchen, Mrs. Angie and their team are absolutely amazing! They go above and beyond to remove all stress from the bride and groom. The venue is gorgeous allowing you to be as elaborate or simplistic with your decor. We were married in July and had the ceremony at 7pm in the courtyard. The natural light and setting was simply perfect for the photographer. And the extra bonus for us was that we were informed that the proceeds the venue receives goes to the Charlotte Fire Dept. I more than recommend using The Palmer Building for your events. 5 stars all the way!

Gorgeous Venue with Fantastic Staff

The Palmer Building is such a gorgeous historic building. Once we saw it, we knew it would be perfect for our wedding reception. What we didn't expect was the outstanding customer service from the Palmer Building staff. Anjie and her team went out of their way to make our day perfect. They worked with us in the months leading up to the event to suggest vendors and services, accommodate our special requests, and even hold some of our decorations until we got back from the honeymoon. Quite simply, they were fabulous!
