About William Aiken House

When it comes to once-in-a-lifetime occasions, a meticulously restored National Historic Landmark in the heart of Downtown Charleston is an unbeatable choice.

A seamless blend of 18th-century charm and 21st-century sophistication makes this 1810 estate one of Charleston’s most sought-after venues for weddings, private receptions, meetings and corporate events - and one of BRIDE magazine's "Best Venues In America." Indoor and outdoor spaces showcase a museum-caliber collection of period artwork and antiques, sweeping piazzas, and elegant garden pergola and lush private grounds, accentuated by unparalled service and cuisine.

    Kailin and Rachel were awesome! They were very flexible, accommodating and professional for my daughter's wedding. Our guests could not stop talking about how wonderful and beautiful the ambiance of the venue. The food was superb, the cake was not only gorgeous, it tasted sooooo good! Jessica, our pastry chef is the best! Thanks to everyone at WAH for part of a team to help me make my daughter's dream wedding come true.

    We recently got married at The William Aiken House, a Patrick Properties Hospitality Group property. The venue and PPHG team were an absolute dream to work with. The historic home and property were absolutely stunning and well maintained by PPHG. While getting married in Charleston, SC was a destination wedding for us, the team at PPHG worked with our travel schedule to best accommodate us for tastings and tours. In specific, Carly and Jackie from PPHG were incredibly friendly and professional, answering all of our questions leading up to the wedding, and were on hand all day during the wedding day to assist in any way possible. With some last minute rain on our wedding day, Carly was able to work with our wedding planners to quickly adjust our ceremony and reception layout to ensure our guests were kept dry throughout a gorgeous evening. In addition, the catering provided by PPHG was phenomenal. One of the biggest compliments we have heard from our guests was how much they enjoyed our station-style southern menu. From appetizers, main courses and late night food, PPHG delivered unforgettable food that far surpassed our expectations. I would certainly recommend PPHG and The William Aiken House to any bride looking to get married in Charleston!

    One of the things that always strikes us about the William Aiken House is the fact that such an amazing place is nestled on King Street. It's a fabulous location! But once you step on the property, it's like you are transported somewhere else. You DO NOT feel the hustle and bustle of nightlife or traffic outside the gates. You feel like you are on the grounds of a beautiful southern home away from the world. The house is immaculate and full of charm! The grounds appear medium sized in person and HUGE in photos! It's elegant, fun, classic, chic and modern... all at the same time! WE LOVE The William Aiken House!
