AL-FRESCO COURTYARD PAIRED WITH A HISTORIC TROLLEY ROOM
Cannon Green is a 19th century Charleston single house facade and old trolley warehouse, with a beautiful courtyard!
It's the perfect mix of modern & glam while still showing off that Charleston Charm with its historic buildings, gas lamps, and of course the food!
You can invite up to 250 guests for your Cannon Green wedding.
Some things to consider for your wedding at cannon green!
Where should we get ready for our wedding at Cannon Green?
We definitely recommend you all get ready nearby in Downtown Charleston!
Luckily, there are many adorable Air BNB's located on Spring Street near Cannon Green but plenty of hotels are within a 5-8 minute car ride.
Check out this blog post of our extensive list of the best hotels, air bnb & historic inns to get ready at in Charleston for your wedding
Where should we have the ceremony & what time do you recommend?
You can have your ceremony in the Courtyard at Cannon Green or you can have your ceremony off site.
We recommend doing a First Look and having your ceremony 2-3 hours before sunset.
While we adore Cannon Green, the ceremony spot can sometimes be in uneven lighting due to the sun setting behind the courtyard wall - please consult with your wedding planner & wedding photographer to try to co-ordinate the best possible lighting timing
What are the Reception options?
The Trolley Room is your option for your reception if you're having a large wedding. We love when couples add bold colors & lots of candles to brighten up the space!
You'll definitely want to consider adding some uplighting as well - it really adds depth to the reception and makes your dancing photos POP.
Intimate weddings & elopements have the option of dining al fresco in the courtyard too.
For how long & where should we plan to take the first look, couples portraits, wedding party & family photos?
Cannon Green is a short car ride away from many gorgeous Charleston locations like Rainbow Row, Chalmers Street & The Battery. We recommend doing at the very least your First Look & Couples photos off site and possibly the wedding party photos but DEFINITELY recommend doing family photos at Cannon Green.
Plan to take photos for 2 hours before the ceremony regardless of if you're doing a First Look or not.
If you're doing a First Look, we'll take 5 minutes for Just Married portraits after the ceremony before you walk hand in hand into cocktail hour and enjoy the party.
If you don't do a First Look, we'll be taking photos for another hour after the ceremony and you'll miss mingling with guests at cocktail hour.
HOURLY COVERAGE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR YOUR WEDDING AT CANNON GREEN
Every wedding is different and unique and so are the hourly coverage needs! If you're unsure how many hours will be the best fit for you, take a peek below at our recommendations
Typically covers getting ready photos to the important reception formalities (toasts, cake cutting) & 30-60 minutes of dance floor action.
If you think your crowd isn’t really going to be the dancing type, or you just don’t really care too much about dance photos, 9 hours will work the best for you!
This is the best starting coverage option if your entire wedding is taking place at Cannon Green
Typically covers getting ready photos to the important reception formalities (toasts, cake cutting) & 1-1.5 hours of dance floor action.
If you’re not planning an exit at the end of the night (or you are but you dont care if its photographed) & you love dancing photos, you’ll definitely want your photographer for 10 hours to make sure there’s lots of fun dancing pics before everyone starts getting too drunk.
This is the best starting coverage if your wedding ceremony is at a different location this isn't Cannon Green
Typically covers getting ready photos to the important reception formalities (toasts, cake cutting) & all of the dancing + your exit at the end of the night.
This is the best option if you want your photos to tell your wedding day story from start to finish, especially if you’re planning a fun exit at the end of the night like sparklers or confetti!
This is also perfect for those of you looking for blackmail photos of your friends doing crazy shit on the dance floor!
