At Engaging Events, we are fortunate to work with all wedding venues that Charleston has to offer and we are happy to feature Merchants Hall this month! Charleston, SC is well known for its southern charm with unique history and culture. Merchants Hall is no exception and has glimpses into the circa 1856 building’s industrial past. The interior of the venue complements its history and truly emphasizes Charleston’s style. Plus, from the inside of the venue, there are beautiful views of the surrounding City Market.
Weather on your wedding day is a big topic, especially in the lowcountry. Merchants Hall is a great choice considering the fact that they are entirely indoors featuring a breathtaking gathering room. While the venue has its own modern finishes and historic charm, it blends into the background as the unique theme of your wedding is highlighted. The venue is known for hosting wedding rehearsals, ceremonies, receptions, welcome parties, celebrations, and corporate dinners. The list goes on!
