Our family and bridal party stayed at the Inn on the property and it was so special having extra time to see everyone at breakfast and at the pool. Such a perfect weekend!
Perfect Venue........Perfect Wedding
We visited over a dozen of the best local venues and decided on Middleton because of the venue options, and the skill of the Middleton special event manager, Emily Wilson. She didn't try to sell us on the venue, she let it sell itself. After we selected Middleton Place as our venue, Emily was with us and our wedding planner through the whole process. The planning process was complicated by the immergence of Covid 19. However Emily worked tirelessly with our wonderful wedding planner, Haley McCarrell from Willow and Oaks Events, through the constantly changing requirements and helped make the wedding a wonderful success. She was a real blessing. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of Middleton Place.
