Beautiful Beginnings

Say ‘I do’ in the heart of Historical Charleston

A History of Making Memories

Since it originally opened its doors over 90 years ago, the Francis Marion Hotel has been the epicenter of weddings and social events in Charleston society. The tradition of elegance and grandeur live on in two of the most elegant ballrooms in Charleston. With unique features like antique chandeliers, 20-foot high ceilings, monumental windows, and marble accented fireplaces, the Francis Marion Hotel provides the ideal location for a romantic Charleston wedding.

In addition to our stunning ballrooms, the Francis Marion Hotel has modern conveniences located right on the premises. For rejuvenation and relaxation, pamper yourself at Spa Adagio, one of the best spas in Charleston. The Swamp Fox Restaurant features Lowcountry favorites and daily specials for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as private dining options for your rehearsal dinner or bridal luncheon. For your guests, the six levels of garage parking located adjacent to the hotel make the Francis Marion easily accessible in the heart of the historic district.

The Francis Marion Hotel can create a wedding package to suit your needs. All of our special packages include complimentary honeymoon suites with champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries. Special discounted group rates are also available for your out-of-town family and guests.

Our on-site catering services deliver impeccable service and exceptional cuisine to make your special day absolutely wonderful. Catering options are limitless, and our fabulous chef can custom-design a menu just for you. We also recommend wedding professionals that are superior in their field to complement and enhance your occasion. From start to finish, our professional wedding coordinators pay close attention to every detail so you don’t have to.

Let us show you why generations of Charlestonians continue to select the Francis Marion Hotel for their wedding festivities.
