This 1800-era plantation home features an impressive front staircase, two story covered porches, a  beautiful pond, and easy access to Wide Awake Park.  A true hidden gem, Old Wide Awake Plantation is the perfect wedding venue for someone who is looking for a quiet, Southern celebration this is off the beaten path.

Old Wide Awake Plantation is a small, private plantation home nestled near the Stono River, about 45 minutes outside of Charleston.

venue highlight

The second story of the Main House is perfect for getting ready on your wedding day! Both rooms are light + bright, which is amazing for both your hair + makeup team, as well as your photographer! I usually recommend having the groom + groomsmen arrive at the venue before the First Look and finish getting ready downstairs for a cohesive look in your full gallery of images.
