FAQ

SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER FOR YOUR WEDDING AT THE GADSDEN HOUSE

WHERE SHOULD WE

GET READY AT?

We definitely recommend you all get ready at the Gadsden House!

 

There is a suite on the top floor of the main house with a kitchen, bathroom and large getting ready room.

 

They also have another building on site for your partner & their team to get ready at too!

WHERE SHOULD WE HAVE THE CEREMONY & WHAT TIME DO YOU RECOMMEND?

For small weddings, we love the upstairs ballroom!

For larger weddings, there are two spaces in the courtyard for ceremonies.

WHAT ARE THE

RECEPTION OPTIONS?

You can set up your dinner tables either inside the grand ballroom or outdoors!

 

Either way, you'll definitely want to consider adding some additional lighting options like candles & colored uplighting - it really adds depth to the reception space.

FOR HOW LONG & WHERE

SHOULD WE PLAN

TO TAKE PORTRAITS?

We recommend doing your First Look at the Gadsden House and a few portraits on site but then we should hop in a car and go somewhere else!

 

Assuming you’re doing a First Look, we schedule 2 hours for the First Look, Couples portraits, Wedding Party & Family photos.

 

After the ceremony, we'll take 5 minutes of Just Married photos on the upper piazza before you go off to Cocktail Hour and 10 minutes for sunset photos while your guests eat dinner across the street at the Galliard Center.

 

We strongly recommend doing a First Look if you want any portraits at the Gadsden House. The venue is fairly compact so your wedding guests will definitely be in the background of all of your photos & they'll try to sneak up to you to talk which will result in less photos.
