Quintessential Southern style abounds in Hopsewee Plantation, a venue ideally situated halfway between Myrtle Beach and Charleston, South Carolina, in Georgetown, recently named the #1 Small Coastal Town in America by USA Today. The plantation home contains a rich history for those couples seeking to add a historic touch to their wedding, bridal shower, engagement party, reception, or rehearsal dinner. Built 40 years before the Revolutionary War of 1775, this building has helped create rich memories and legacies, and is now ready to do the same for you. An on site restaurant, the River Oak Cottage Tea Room, provides the perfect ambiance for dining and catered affairs.

Pricing for the turnkey service is dependent upon the number of guests anticipated, type of food service requested, and whether alcohol will be served. We have found that so many couples prefer this turnkey pricing method. Not only does it save money, but also a tremendous amount of time and worry over various entities working together. This takes that concern from you so you can thoroughly enjoy your special day. Come fall in love with Hopsewee.

STUNNING views!! My husband and I hosted our wedding ceremony and reception at Hopsewee Plantation in September 2017 and it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We could not have made a better decision to host our wedding at this location. Thew views were unreal, the weather was absolutely perfect, and the owners and staff were wonderful! Raejean was so kind and accommodating. She made sure everything I wanted/needed was perfect. The food was SO delicious and she will make ANY menu you have in mind. All of my guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the venue was. If you are looking for a location to host your wedding, look no further! You must book here, I promise you will not regret it!

We hosted our bridal luncheon, rehearsal dinner, and Raejean catered our wedding at another location. Everything was absolutely delicious! She worked with us from day one to make a menu that was both within our vision and our budget. The food was delicious and my only regret is not eating enough of it at the wedding :) The venue is absolutely stunning. The large oaks with Spanish moss hanging down makes for the most romantic view ever! Whether you are looking to host a small event or a wedding, Hopsewee has so much to offer. Thanks so much to Raejean and the rest of the staff for helping us put on the wedding of our dreams! Love, The Dixons
