Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Nestled on a private 55-acre island, this Lowcountry venue offers a secluded retreat 10 miles from downtown Charleston. The impressive white-columned house built in the '60s provides a beautiful backdrop for outdoor celebrations, as well as a lovely interior for bridal & groom preparations. Never fear, it's split-level so there's no concern that the wedding couple will accidentally see each other before the wedding!
  • Photo opportunities abound, such as the lush lawns along the waterfront, a marina filled with boats, a massive oak tree, flowering meadows, and a wooden dock stretching into the Stono River (especially nice at sunset!).
  • A tented outdoor area with a smooth concrete floor, wrought-iron chandeliers, ceiling fans, and perimeter lighting ensures your reception will be stylish and comfortable. Also included are tables and padded white resin folding chairs.
