The grounds feature old oak trees, planted in the 18th century, and a saltwater pond, providing an idyllic background for wedding photos.

A wedding tent, covering 3,200 square feet, can be erected on the banks of the pond. From here, couples and their guests have a clear view of the property’s various attributes while also providing protection from the elements. Inside the farmhouse, a get-ready room is available should the couple or guests request it for the special day. There is plentiful parking available onsite for the convenience of guests.

Services Offered

Not only is this venue available for ceremonies, but also for wedding showers, engagement parties, and receptions. The house can provide essentials like tables and chairs to support the celebrations they play host to.

A Dream Venue!

When we were planning our wedding, we had a venue vision that we didn't think would be possible to pull off based on our parameters -- we wanted dreamy oaks with dripping spanish moss, a big white classic tent, a secluded spot close enough to Kiawah Island, and the flexibility to work with the vendors we preferred. With Wingate Place, we got all of this well within our budget AND with the added benefit of Sarah (venue manager and wedding planner herself) and all the features that she and her family installed on-site to make the venue wedding ready (uplighing on oak trees, bridal & groom suites, restrooms, electric hookups every where you need, hidden parking, etc.). We were a little hesitant that we were too small of a group to fill out the space (57 people), but it did not feel like that day of! Not only was it the most beautiful setting, but working with Sarah was so easy and we felt rest-assured that the wedding day would go off without a hitch under her supervision. 10/10 would recommend to anyone! Thank you Sarah and everyone at Wingate Place!

So beautiful!

I feel so fortunate to have been able to get married here! The property is absolutely stunning! My fiancé really wanted to be married near big oak trees and I really wanted to be near water, and Wingate has all that and more! Sarah, the site manager, was such a joy to work with! Both locals and out of town guests were so impressed with Wingate! Again, I feel so fortunate that this is where we were able to get married and host all our friends and family. It was awesome!

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!
