Nothing short of amazing!
Where do I begin? From the get go we automatically fell in love. You couldn’t beat the prices, the scenery, and of course Sarah (the venue’s wedding coordinator) was so sweet and accommodating from the very beginning. It was everything we had imagined it would be. I had pictured church pews on the lawn by the oak tree with Spanish moss at my wedding, and they created that for me. My favorite part of the whole experience was working with Sarah. If we wouldn’t have had her as a coordinator, I wouldn’t have had someone to help bustle my dress, make sure we ate, keep the ceremony and reception organized, and so much more. She was a life saver! And we can’t thank her enough for everything she did to make our day special. I would recommend this venue to anyone!Sent on 11/14/2018

The Most Perfect Wedding Venue for an Outdoor Wedding
Wingate Plantation was the first vendor we booked for our wedding back in October. This place is truly a gem. Every step of this process with Sarah was amazing. I highly, highly recommend this venue. It gives you everything you'd want out of a Charleston wedding: dreamy oak trees, a large tent for dinner and dancing and amenities that are rarely included like tables and chairs. We're from Atlanta, so our wedding was a destination wedding for 95% of our guest. We found that when we visited the other gorgeous venues in Charleston there were a lot of restrictions that made us feel like we would be rushed on our wedding day. Wingate was amazing because we felt like our guest truly got the opportunity to stay a while and enjoy themselves. We love this place so much and I guarantee you won't regret it.Sent on 02/07/2019

Wingate Plantation was a no brainer for us. My husband and I live on Johns Island and had driven by it several times, so when it came time to choose a venue, this was our first (and ended up being our last) consideration. You can tell from the pictures that it is a beautiful setting, but seeing it in person was even better. We chose to have both our ceremony and reception at Wingate, and everything was flawless throughout the entire day. The bridal suite was fantastic, and was perfect for myself, 8 bridesmaids, and my mother to get ready in that morning. It's unlike any other venue in Charleston that I've been to, but still has the "Southern charm" we were looking for. We have received countless compliments from our guests about the setting.Sent on 06/27/2018
Sarah was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was responsive, organized, and accomodating throughout the entire process. She made our lives so much easier!
I really could go on and on about how wonderful our experience was with Wingate. Truly positive from start to end, and I would recommend it to anyone!
