Stunning Charles Towne Landing Elopement Location
Updated: Aug 10
Charles Towne Landing State Historic Park is located on a marshy point off the Ashley River in Charleston, SC. English settlers landed here in 1670 and established what would become the birthplace of the Carolina colony. We now offer a special elopement package for this location: Lowcounty Elopement Package.
The grounds include 80 acres of gardens, with an elegant live oak alley and the Legare Waring House. This area is a favorite for elopements and engagement photo shoots! The Legare Waring House can be rented for large weddings or other special gatherings.
The elopement permit is $500 Monday - Friday, and $750 on Saturday and Sunday. The elopement is limited to 10 guests, bride and groom, officiant, and photographer. No chairs or decorations are allowed. ( To see complete list of Elopement rules, you can visit Charles Towne Landing Website.) The elopement permit is included in the Lowcountry Elopement Package!
Guests can step aboard and tour the Adventure, Charleston's only 17th century relics sailing ship!
There is over 6 miles of trails as well as a zoo with otters, bears, bison, and more!
The park is open daily from 9-5. As you can see from the photos above and below, this park offers beautiful scenery, as well as being historically significant.
