Middleton Place named one of the "50 Most Romantic Wedding Venues in the U.S." by Brides.com >>
The outdoor venues at historic Middleton Place provide ideal wedding ceremony locations. For an intimate gathering or a grand affair, Middleton Place can create the perfect event. The beautiful Middleton Oak, which is estimated to be more than 900 years old, and with the Ashley River in the background, the natural beauty of the ancient oak contrasts with the manicured gardens to offer a site of uncommon magnificence. The Secret Gardens provide a more formal venue. Consisting of two separate gardens, the smaller of the two offers an intimate outdoor setting delineated by carefully groomed hedges.
The larger of the Secret Gardens, embellished by four marble statues, offers an al fresco room framed by tones and textures of green foliage. Adjacent to the Sundial Garden and the Middleton Oak, the Octagonal Garden is an ideal wedding site. The Ashley River provides a romantic backdrop while the carefully manicured boxwoods define the pathways. Pansies and Camellias provide subtle color during the winter months while Azaleas and Salvia offer a blaze of color in the spring and summer. Board a handcrafted plantation carriage for a romantic tour after exchanging vows. The carriages are also available to transport you and your guests from the ceremony site to the reception site. Visit the Venues page for more information on locations.
