The Chapel is patterned after some of the most exquisite churches in historic downtown Charleston. The invitation begins as you enter through the massive solid wood red doors. The magnificently designed vaulted two story interior with its smooth lines, large palladian windows, and a balcony designed especially for photographers and videographers who will artistically capture those unforgettable moments with ease. It is all brought together by seating for up to 100 guests in the beautifully crafted vintage oak pews. It is the perfect setting for a couple to say their "I Do's"!
Coleman Hall, adjacent to the chapel, is the perfect setting for your wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, parties, corporate functions, or any social event you may encounter. The spacious hall has an open floor plan with eye catching buffed slate grey floors, neutral soft grey walls, and vaulted open beam ceilings giving decor and design an open book to create that signature look that each client wants to achieve. There is a white washed brick fireplace complimented by a lovely wooden mantel and large silver mirror. A late 1800's antique buffet that is hand tooled walnut with a soft grey solid marble top can be the site for a wedding cake or coffee station (its your choice). The one of a kind, custom wooden bar is a handsome way to serve your guests. And to complete the room there are four sets of beautiful french doors opening up into the warm and inviting courtyard.
We love our courtyard! The Coleman Hall and Chapel courtyard is the perfect outdoor area nestled between the Chapel and the Hall.
The french doors open out onto the beautifully groomed courtyard with its large moss draped oak tree, manicured boxwood hedges, large rosemary bushes with their soft fragrance, potted miniature white iris', umbrella palms, and an iron gated entrance guarded by two majestic crepe myrtles. The walls that surround the courtyard are covered in night blooming jasmine, which cradle your guests in the open arms of the Holy City. The courtyard is the perfect setting for a progressive event, being easily sectioned off. The area will accommodate two tents. The band or DJ just off of the Hall or a signature drink served just inside the iron gates can be accommodated with or without a tent. The vintage oak pews under the portico allow your guests to lounge under the stars and take in the ambiance of the landscape lighting after dark. Edison style lights strung in the open air are a nice option to evening events as well.
At Coleman Hall and Chapel we are pleased to provide lovely additional amenities in hopes of making your event more comfortable and accommodating.
The chapel has two five-foot topiaries in urns on rollers which can be used in front on either side of the red doors or rolled inside to be utilized on either side of the altar.
The courtyard has two ten-foot palms on rollers that may be used, and intricately placed landscape lighting which gives a beautiful romantic feel to the area at night.
The hall has an elegantly designed and decorated dressing area with cascading polished linen fabric, a tailors hook so that the gowns may be hung on a high rack (made especially for those artistic dress photos), a glass tea cart for champagne and snacks, and stools for storage of bridal parties personal items. Without a doubt, the bride and bridal party will feel pampered and special!
We have a catering kitchen that has a commercial refrigerator, two eight-foot stainless steel prep tables, and a stainless steel commercial sink. There is a loading dock for ease of delivery for all vendors, opening directly into the kitchen. Also, an outside area for prep tents, that does not take up parking, as the back of the building has been cleared for caterer and staff parking.
There are 47 parking spaces available for guest parking, as well as 4 handicap spaces.
