Woodlawn Plantation is a 19th-century wedding and event venue in Guyton, Georgia. Situated on 10 acres of land, the property has been carefully restored to maintain its original architectural style. Completing its transformation from a farm to an event venue in 2012, the location contains numerous settings in which couples can celebrate their new beginnings.
Facilities and Capacity
A number of indoor and outdoor event locations are available for couples who choose to wed at Woodlawn Plantation. Those envisioning a ceremony encompassed by nature can exchange vows beneath two large oak trees. Low branches can be combined with drapery to form a wedding arch and guest chairs can be set up on the lawn. After the service, a cocktail hour can be held in the courtyard, complete with a firepit, bar, and string lighting. For the main reception, the newlyweds can lead their guests to the pole barn. This open structure provides a protective cover for the celebrations without enclosing guests from the natural surroundings. Covering 2,500 square feet of event space, the facility can accommodate between 150 and 200 guests and has room for dancing. Additional on-site facilities include the Glass Room, located in the garden, where the wedding party can get ready for the occasion. Furthermore, the venue is wheelchair-accessible and contains on-site parking for guests.
The professional team at Woodlawn Plantation only books one event per weekend, allowing extra time for couples to set up their celebrations. With over 18 years of experience, their event staff will work with you to produce a memorable event. They can take care of a variety of details to help the big day run smoothly, including sound and lighting. Additionally, outside vendors are allowed, encouraging couples to select the flowers, entertainment, cake, and more that best reflects their theme and vision. To make the planning and setup process easier, the venue can supply tables and chairs for the ceremony and reception.

The farm is just beautiful. We had our daughters wedding here and could not have had a more beautiful venue. Alan is wonderful! The ceremony was under one of the many beautiful old oak trees. The reception was at the barn and is magical with the twinkling lights at night. The sunsets are just stunning! We would recommend this venue over and over again.Sent on 12/26/2019

We had our wedding at Woodlawn Plantation & Gardens September of 2017, and the venue could not have been more perfect! Woodlawn holds its own personality but is very adaptive to whatever you are looking for, from elegant to low-key! Alan the grounds manager, was a delight and so very helpful with everything!Sent on 12/07/2017
