About 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.

Facilities and Capacity

The Old Wide Awake Plantation 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, where couples can say their vows under the old oak trees. 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 Plantation 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.

    Gorgeous Property + Easy to Work with Team

    Old Wide Awake Plantation is an absolutely incredible venue. My couple was forced to reschedule their wedding venue approximately 3 weeks prior to their wedding, and Margaret absolutely saved the day!!! She was extremely flexible and accommodating, professional, had great suggestions, and was quick to reply in our super sped up planning. One thing that I love about the space is that there are so many different layout options for ceremony, cocktail hour, and the reception. Having the large kitchen was perfect for all of us vendors to prep and hide our belongings in, and the multiple restrooms on different levels of the house were wonderful. The greenery on the steps and bottom level walls is just DREAMY. This is truly a special, unique property, and I cannot wait to be back!!

    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!
