The Plantation Home
The facility boasts a beautiful historic plantation home, with original wide plank red oak floors throughout, is open three hours prior to your event for dressing and photographic opportunities.
The front of the mansion also serves as a ceremony site. The front alle’ serves as the aisle and guests are seated on both sides of the boxwood hedge.
The Bride’s Rooom
This room is on the top floor and includes the most elegant french decor throughout. With a full drop, french ticking bedspread sprawled across a four poster black enamel bedstead, sprinkled with black and white toile linen pillows and coverlet, you will feel like you have been transported back in time. The bed is then complemented by an early nineteenth century hand carved, french rosewood, mirrored armoire that stands an impressive nine feet tall. You cannot help but to have a twirl in your dress in front of it.
It is spacious enough for you and your maids to prepare for your big day whilst enjoying some bubbly and there is a private ensuite for your convenience. The photo opportunities are timelessly elegant and infinite!
The Groom’s Library
The thirteen foot tall oak shelves throughout speak towards the home’s history and importance. It was decorated with the southern gentleman in mind with rich deep tones complimented by a few touches of blue to keep the room fresh and contemporary. The fireplace is the largest of the home, with a marble surround and original mantle which is then saluted by the antique Zoffoli globe bar which may be used by guests.
You are able to step out onto one of the attached 7 porches to enjoy a celebratory cigar or step out into the magnolia lawn to play a game of croquet.
There is an additional overflow bedroom that has an antique french armoire, another impressive fireplace as well as a full ensuite for your convenience.
The Parterre Gardens
The formal parterre gardens that welcome you to the estate are one of the reasons for it’s induction into the historical registry. There is a center allée leading up to the entrance of the plantation home with a round garden on one side, and a four square garden on the other. The parterres are filled with assorted flowering fauna such as gardenias, camellias, crepe myrtles and azaleas.
The parterre gardens can also serve as a fun and unexpected set up for a garden cocktail hour.
The Overseer’s Cabin
This cabin is another historic building on the property that is not currently open inside to the public at this time. However, it’s aged patina and Virginia Creeper coverage is a great spot for photographs. Our new wildflower meadow leads you to the cabin and serves as another ceremony site for those couples looking for a more natural or rustic vibe.
The Summer Porch
This is a perfect spot for an intimate ceremony, dinner, cocktail hour, bridal tea, brunch, etcetera.
The Pecan Grove
The pecan grove is has a very intimate feel for weddings or receptions. Nestled under the canopy of several ancient pecan trees, you feel enveloped in their grace. It is located just adjacent to the rear of the mansion and is watched over by the stately rear porches.
The Magnolia Lawn
Three striking magnolia trees that are original to the plantation, encase the side lawn that can be reached via two of the seven porches. In the springtime, the trees drip with blooms and the aroma is heavenly. This is a great spot for a ceremony, reception, cocktail hour, rehearsal dinner or Sunday morning send off.
The Wedding Tree
An old pecan tree beckons to you from the back porch to enjoy her shade during your ceremony. She is flanked by two other pecan trees that seem to frame the site in the most romantic way. In the fall, the sun sets behind her grace.
Our woodland ceremony sites offer a whimsical, romantic setting. With ancient trees dripping with wisteria and honeysuckle vines, the woodlands are guaranteed to add the element of enchantment you have been dreaming of.
