About the Chapel

The Charleston Chapel for Weddings- intimate enough for two and large enough for seventy-five wedding guests. The perfect location in Historic Downtown Charleston.

Charleston Chapel for Weddings was designed to recreate the architectural charm of the chapels of ease, circa 1710 to 1815, some of which still dot the charming South Carolina countryside.

Recipient of the 1995 Carolopolis Award from the Charleston, South Carolina Preservation Society for new construction most in keeping with the design and ambiance of Historic Charleston.

Meticulous in every detail, the Preservation Society award-winning Charleston Chapel represents the very best in capturing the spirit of historic Charleston right down to the stone floor, reminiscent of the old chapels whose floors were laid with stones used as ballast on ships sailing from England and Europe.


The high gabled roof and arched windows evoke the memory of the old parish churches, and the leaded hand-blown glass window over the main entrance door is typical of the type of window used during the period. It was crafted by a local artisan.

The stucco exterior reflects the lingering island influence so prevalent in the Charleston area and serves as a perfect backdrop for the climbing fig vine, Azaleas, and sweet scented gardenia which hint at the garden atmosphere to be found inside the chapel.

As one enters the front doorway, a flurry of greenery mingled with the graceful lines of white garden benches greets the eye. Imported from Indonesia and exclusively designed for the chapel, the wrought iron and oak benches are adorned with hand-carved garlands of ribbon. Soft lighting beams from the ivy laded antique chandeliers.

The bridal room (shown left) and business section are furnished with antiques, statuary and original works of art completing the elegant montage.

The Charleston Chapel is a lovely and worthy addition to the "city of romance".
Intimate enough for two and large enough for seventy-five guests, the chapel invites lovers of all ages to wed, renew, and rejoice in one of the most meaningful rituals in a style unique to the chapel and to the city to which it truly belongs.
