Wedding Photography at The Gadsden House


Built around 1798 in the popular Federal architectural style, the Gadsden House is a nationally registered landmark and one of the most fiercely protected by the Charleston Preservation Society. The Gadsden House has recently underdone renovations to restore the property to its former elegance and grandeur. The house offers gorgeous architecture inside and out, from the classic windows and iconic keystones on the facade to the high ceilings and chandeliers which give the venue an airy yet sophisticated aura. The wraparound double porches present the Charleston single-house building style and add a relaxing area for your guests. The preserved wooden floors exude elegance and add to the warmth of any event. The bridal suite on the third floor was meticulously restored and provides a beautiful view of Charleston. For the couple wanting the perfect Charleston wedding in a historic building, the Gadsden House is absolutely perfect.


Our photographers adore the newly renovated Gadsden House because of the history of the building as well as the popular architectural elements. Capturing couples in front of the original brick or one of the huge windows outside is a unique way to convey a destination wedding atmosphere. Inside portraits against the windows allow the newlyweds or brides to be framed by elegance with a backdrop of gorgeous green or parts of the Charleston skyline. Unique elements such as the refinished, original fireplaces provide a rustic touch to compliment chic gowns and suits. Celebrations after dark are incredibly intimate with the chandeliers’ golden light creating a dazzling effect on the wooden floors. Regardless of time or season, this venue is sure to impress and we anxiously anticipate the opportunity to capture your special moments in this historic place.
