The most enchanting venue!

I cannot say enough about our wonderful experience hosting our wedding at the Governor Thomas Bennett House!! It is the most unique and gorgeous venue - it was a destination wedding for us so we chose the venue before seeing it in person; pictures simply cannot do it justice. Our guests couldn't stop raving about how magical the whole place felt! We had our ceremony in the garden, cocktail on the grand porch and inside the beautiful home, and reception on the patio. We wanted to showcase the natural beauty of the space and were able to go with more minimal floral design and decor. I also loved that it was right in downtown Charleston - no 30 minute bus ride for the guests. We absolutely loved working with Linda, the venue manager, throughout the year of our engagement. She is so genuinely nice, extremely experienced, and was always happy to offer her expertise. I am so glad we chose TBH for our wedding and would highly recommend booking here if you can get a date :)

Unique and Gorgeous

I knew I would want to get married here the first time I set my eyes on it. I looked at other places but couldn't see it happening anywhere else! This blended my perfect garden wedding with not being too outdoorsy! It's perfect because you can get ready on site and never have to leave. That takes so much stress out of the day. Thanks to Christa and Linda for keeping up with this beautiful venue and making it a dream come true!
