    Perfect Venue........Perfect Wedding

    My daughter's wedding was held at Middleton Place. We live in Charleston and know a lot about the area. Our daughter grew up here. Still, we were very careful to choose the right venue since there are a lot of options in Charleston. Middleton Place turned out to be the perfect choice. It is truly a historical gem. It is natural and beautiful. Visually, the setting is just spectacular. The Middleton Restaurant is an outstanding restaurant and provides the food and beverage service.
    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.
