About Us

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!

A wedding is a huge investment and is one of the most special moments in a couples life. Julia from Great Day Events was hired as the new management company and it took several weeks of corresponding to the Charleston before we heard anything from Julia informing us of the management change. The remaining couple of months of planning our wedding was extremely stressful due to th... Read more
