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.

Facilities and Capacity

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. The ivy-covered front steps offer an opportunity for wedding portraits, as do many corners of the property’s garden.

Services Offered

Couples are welcome to choose their favorite businesses to complement their celebrations. The Old Wide Awake can provide a wedding coordination service to guide couples through the property and customize it to fit their wedding’s theme. Lighting and sound facilities can be supplied so that every guest can hear the speeches and the night’s proceedings. Setup and cleanup services are available to further support the couple through the hectic process of planning and hosting their wedding. Wireless internet connections are provided to help the couple and guests to stay in touch with those who were unable to make it to the occasion. The property is pet-friendly, ensuring that your four-legged friends needn’t be left out, and on-site parking is available for your convenience.

    Highly recommend from a fellow wedding musician/vendor!!

    I am a violinist/ensemble liaison that has been performing for weddings/events here in Charleston for 17+ years and it is always a pleasure working with Margaret!! She has years of experience and definitely shows passion for what she does. She is organized and meticulous in her communication. She is also super responsive and just really fun individual to work with the day of. Highly recommend!!!

    The perfect venue!

    We were so excited to have our wedding here! The inside of the house as well as the grounds were stunning and just what we wanted for our low country wedding. They were so easy to work with and they answered any questions we had. We had a wonderful experience at Old Wide Awake and so did our guests! If you haven’t booked your date yet, hurry! You won’t regret it!

    Old Wide Awake Plantation's reply:

    It was such a glorious day, and I loved that you chose Old Wide Awake to host your very special day. Thank you for including me in the process and stay in touch, Savannah!

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.
