There’s a new series we’re starting over here at Ivy Bee Weddings – the Venue Hot List. We get asked weekly by clients and non-clients what our favorite venues are. Personally, I L O V E researching and seeing new venues, so I was thrilled when 563 King popped up on the Charleston scene. Intimate wedding brides – this one is for you!
563 King is located in Downtown Charleston and is a creative concept of high-end apartments that surround the most gorgeous courtyard ever, which makes an amazing backdrop for a wedding. My mouth literally dropped open when I walked through the gate, and I can’t believe that something so gorgeous was in the middle of downtown. The venue can hold up to 200 people, but intimate wedding brides, this venue would be perrrrrfect, because your guests can stay in the apartment, and you could host your events in the courtyard and rooftop areas. If Rob and I were getting married this year, we would hands down be clients of this great venue. Jamie, the venue manager is a literal angel and will make sure you have anything you need to make sure your event goes off without a hitch!
I was even more excited when our planner, and one of our favorites in town, Camila Craft with Love Craft Events jumped in and wanted to partner on a shoot together at the venue. We had so much fun working on a “Modern Tuscan” shoot at the venue, and it was literally so, so, so dreamy. I’m only going to share a few images for now, but just wait until you see this in full! The vendor lineup was AMAZING, and I had so much fun working with these creative souls. Seriously, from the invitations, to the accessories, to the cake and sweetest models, everyone brought so much energy to the space, and I can’t wait to shoot a real wedding at 563 King! Make sure you take a look at the full vendor list below, they are rockstars for any wedding or special event.
We’re going to be featuring a ton of our favorite venues over the next few weeks from all across the country. I can’t wait for you to get familiar with them, and the vendors that do amazing work there!
