About The Charleston Event Center

The banquet facility is decorated to highlight the building’s historic Southern Mansion style with a hospitable feel of warm, rich colors and various textures of wood and brick. The Charleston can host a ceremony inside or outside and a dinner reception in the ballroom accommodating up to 250 guests. The ballroom features beautiful French doors that frame a romantic pond and walkout Veranda beckoning all of your guests. The first floor Parlor and upper Mezzanine levels are perfect for social hour with large windows overlooking the charming dock and row boat in the pond. The flexibility of the space truly allows you to customize your event. As you’re looking through photos and getting a feel of the space, we want to walk you through the complete “Mansion experience”. The architectural design of the building, with the brick and white pillars and single door entry, immediately evoke the private “mansion feel” that our couples love. The “Parlor” is the area on the first floor that overlooks the Veranda and pond and is perfect for cocktail/appetizer hour, or as a retreat for guests later in the evening. The ballroom is that perfect blend of southern charm with a hint of midwest flair. The brick wall, with full length french doors, makes for the most charming backdrop for your ceremony and dance floor photos. The french doors open up to the walk-out veranda with patio and built-in seating. Veranda ceremonies for 100 are a wonderful option overlooking the pond and ground’s landscaping. We would be honored to host your memorable day and we wish you the best! We would love to assist you in making the planning, orchestration and execution of your wedding day fun, exciting and “stress free”.
