Old Wide Awake Plantation
Located in Hollywood, South Carolina, Old Wide Awake Plantation is a wedding venue. This mansion has been hosting ceremonies and receptions since 1991. It was originally built at the onset of the 19th century, but in recent years has undergone various refurbishments. These include extending the upstairs veranda and adding a travertine patio beside the house.

The Old Wide Awake can house weddings of up to 250 guests, although smaller gatherings are also welcomed. Ceremonies can be held on the tree-lined avenue that leads up to the estate. They can choose between indoor and outdoor event spaces, in order to best reflect the tone of their wedding. The recent addition of the patio can be tented to accommodate events, whatever the weather might be. A get-ready room is available for the wedding party to use at their own discretion, facilitating those last-minute preparations on the big day. Guests can attend a sophisticated cocktail reception on the wrap-around porch, or have a banquet meal in the outdoor tent.

Gorgeous venue! I have photographed a few weddings at Old Wide Awake over the last few years and it is always a pleasure to work with Margaret. It is a perfect spot for a laid back country style wedding or an upscale Charleston bride. Beautiful house, grounds, and so versatile!
We love catering at Old Wide Awake! Working with Margaret is always a pleasure and she makes sure that every detail is covered and is very helpful to the vendors. This venue is a timeless piece of history and is great inside and out. We always look forward to catering there and hope to be back again soon.
