Get Married In Charleston

There are so many beautiful locations in Charleston in which to get married that the hardest part will be deciding which one suits you best. All of these locations can be easily searched; we’ve included links to many.

Carriage Marriage

Consider a “carriage marriage.”  A horse-drawn carriage for just the two of you can be hired to take you to the gazebo at White Point Garden or other location on their prescribed routes.  We like Palmetto Carriage and Old South Carriage companies.  We will also marry you on the carriage. See Palmetto Carriage or Old South Carriage.

Parks & Gardens

Contact Charleston City Parks & Recreation (843-724-7327) to make a reservation at some of our beautiful parks, including the Pineapple Fountain at Waterfront Park, the gazebo at White Point Garden, the gazebo at Hampton Park, the Angel Oak Tree and others.

Marriage on the Charleston Waterfront

Waterfront locations include Waterfront Park and White Point Garden. Folly Beach and Sullivan’s Island are the most wedding-friendly of the area beaches.  On Isle of Palms, the Exchange Club can be rented, it overlooks Hamlin Creek and a huge expanse of marsh.  The Outboard Motor Club has a large hall and outdoor area, perfect for oyster roasts or barbecues, called Gold Bug Island. Wonderful water views.  Alhambra Hall in Mount Pleasant is another popular location.

Indoor & Plantation Settings

Magnolia and Middleton plantations offer wedding packages, but aren’t suited to very small events.  Boone Hall also offers a rustic location on the water.
