It’s time for another venue spotlight, but this one is INCREDIBLY exciting for me. Why? Well, it’s my venue! I’ve been keeping it in a top-secret vault from everyone but very close family and friends. I just wanted there to be an element of suspense in my wedding planning and keep my guests intrigued as to where we were actually getting married! Well since the invites have been sent out and opened by our guests, I figured it’s finally time to unleash the amazing venue we chose for our nuptials. Honestly, every time I see this place I get chills. If you are planning a southern wedding in Charleston, this venue is on the must list to check out.
The William Aiken House is located on the bustling King street which boasts tons of shopping, restaurants and other historic landmarks. Not only is the location perfect, the mansion itself dates back to the 1800’s and is registered as a national historic landmark. The house is kept in pristine condition and is fully furnished with antique furniture, paintings and chandeliers. It also has a private garden with a coy pond and giant Magnolia tree, which is often decorated in lights and lanterns for weddings. A quaint carriage house is located in the back of the grounds and is open to reserve for newlyweds and family to spend the night! But enough from me, time to drool over the photographs!
