This historic and elegant location defines quintessential Charleston and is the premier backdrop for any southern event. Offering expansive views of grand Live Oaks, manicured gardens and an open pasture from the beautiful Plantation House Veranda, this site is rich with history and tradition. Located in the heart of Magnolia's garden, the Veranda provides an unforgettable setting for your special day.

 

Just a short stroll through our romantic style garden, with views of Magnolia's signature white bridge, the Long White Bridge Lawn is the perfect site for a garden ceremony. Also featuring a charming gazebo circa 1840 and a grand Live Oak, this lawn can accommodate 250 guests.

The porch, over 20 feet wide, fully surrounds the plantation home and offers 360 degree views of the surrounding gardens and access to the lawns on all four sides of the house. Your guests can wander through the butterfly garden and around the expansive porch for your cocktail hour.

The interior of the Plantation House is a Museum and Gift Shop, therefore it is not accessible after hours as part of the event space. There are, however, restrooms and a set-up area for catering purposes located on the first floor of the home and are specifically designated for event use. Finally, all your guests can continue down the back side of the Plantation House to be welcomed in your grand reception on the back lawn.
