Venue Spotlight | Dogwood Downs

Dogwood Downs is located just 20 minutes outside of Charleston and the natural beauty of this property is totally worth every second of the drive! This outdoor Charleston wedding venue is surrounded by huge oak trees and a beautiful pond, the perfect backdrop for large or small gatherings.

The first time I went to Dogwood Downs, I was immediately struck by how peaceful the property’s atmosphere was. I was greeted by the venue owners, Holly and Kyndra, who welcomed me warmly and made me feel right at home. If you’re looking for an outdoor venue with some true southern charm, this is it!

Pro Tips for Weddings
at Dogwood Downs

  1. Plan your ceremony for 2 hours before sunset time. This will help cut down on any harsh sun coming through the trees and causing shadows.
  2.  Build in as much time as possible for portraits – you’ll want to take advantage of the beautiful scenery.
  3.  Consider providing bug spray for your guests, especially if your wedding is in spring or summer.
  4. All events must conclude by 10pm. There is a noise ordinance in the area.
