    Gorgeous avenue of oaks views

    I love the grand avenue of oaks much like Boone Hall. And the history of this park area is unmatchable. There are views of the river, a pond, incredible oak trees with spanish moss. A lot of amazing wedding photo opportunities.

    Beautiful, natural space

    One of the most stunning outdoor venues in the Charleston area. Charlestowne Landing is a true gem in this area, and Legare Waring is a very special part of that. The house and grounds are very well kept, and the staff there is so easy to work with, very ready to communicate with you. The house is lovely and a wonderful place to get ready. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and this was due in large part to having our wedding here. Overall I would highly recommend this to anyone!

    Stunning Historic Home

    We had our eye on LWH as soon as we decided to have our wedding in Charleston. When we toured it, the beautiful avenue of oaks really sold us. It is unlike anywhere else. So peaceful, serene, and beautiful. We had our ceremony on the avenue of oaks and our reception on the fountain patio. Even in mid-February, the weather was absolutely perfect for an indoor/outdoor wedding.

    This venue is so stunning, my wedding party and guests were gasping when they first laid eyes on it (and so did I)! I got comments all night on how my venue was the most beautiful people had ever seen, even though it poured rain on my wedding day. Even better, the staff is friendly, experienced, and available for any questions. I did not have any problems at all! The only thing that would be good to know about Legare beforehand is that it is a "bare-bones" venue that requires a wedding planner: there is no in-house catering, no chairs/tables, etc so you have to outsource everything. However, if you are looking for a jaw-dropping venue with the flexibility to choose all your own vendors, I would look no further than LWH!

    I had always dreamed of getting married under an oak tree, and there isn't a more picturesque spot in all of Charleston than Legare Waring House. This venue is romantic, whimsical, and just the perfect amount of wild. What I love about the venue is that you have a water view of the pond, the cathedral like aisle with the Avenue of Oaks, and the gorgeous house to use. It was so special getting ready with all my bridesmaids while watching the magic unfold outside. An added bonus is that you have the choice to use whichever vendors you would like! As a native Charlestonian, I was so proud to have my friends and family explore such a historic and beautiful spot in the convenient area of West Ashley. My NJ relatives were showing their friends photos of the venue even prior to our wedding! I can't wait to get our photos back because I know they will be perfect underneath the Spanish moss. LWH will always hold a special place in my heart.

    When we stepped foot on the grounds of Legare Waring House, we knew without a doubt that it was the spot we were meant to be married. We had been to many beautiful venues/settings throughout Charleston, but there was just something about LWH that made it stand out from the others. From the picturesque "Avenue of Oaks," to the beautiful lagoon area, to the charming house, there was nothing that didn't completely wow us. Add in the fact that the house had perfect, spacious bride and groom quarters for getting ready (which was harder than expected to find), and that Julie Ann was the most down to earth, sweet person who wanted to help us in any way possible, and we knew it was our spot. Things only got better from there. Beth and her staff were extremely responsive and helpful through every step leading up to the process. They were also very communicative in the weeks leading up to our big day, which was much appreciated since we were planning a wedding from afar. The day of was seamless as well. I heard over and over again from guests who attended our wedding that it was the most beautiful setting for a wedding that they'd ever witnessed. I'd say we'd have to agree. Legare Waring House provided us a fairy tale setting that we will never forget.

    This venue is hands down the most gorgeous in Charleston! I mean I may be biased, but several of our guests said it was the prettiest place they’d ever seen and even joked about renewing their vows there! The house is amazing with 4 bridal suites and a room downstairs for the guys. Then the avenue of oaks, wedding oak, patio, and waterfronts with all the greenery and flowers are just breathtaking! The staff are also very responsive to emails and so helpful and encouraging!

    I honestly could not even dream up a more gorgeous and magical place! The Legare Waring House is the most perfect secret little treasure. I was actually set on another venue and ran across the LWH on pinterest and I was in love. From the first time we stepped on site we knew this was it. The house that is included to get ready in is absolutely gorgeous and so roomy! We were able to get there at 9AM to start getting ready and we were able to enjoy breakfast while getting our hair and make up done. The guys showed up around 1 and got to hang out while getting ready as well in their own grooms quarters downstairs. We got married under the giant 'wedding oak' and our reception was under the avenue of oaks. The trees and moss are incredible and we got SO many compliments on our venue choice. Go check it out -- you will NOT regret it!

    Magical! That's the word all our guests continually say about our wedding at Legare Waring House. My husband and I consider ourselves venue experts after having viewed literally 20 venues in the Charleston area. From numerous plantations to historic houses downtown, we saw it all, but the moment we walked into Legare, we knew that was the one for us. The entire grounds are absolutely stunning and it's only 10 minutes from downtown! We appreciate the easy access for our guests. Our wedding party had a fabulous time getting ready and hanging inside the gorgeous house all day. Everything was absolutely perfect. We still can't get over it!

    My daughter got married on November 23, 2013 Under The Oaks at Legare Waring. We looked at many venues, but Legare Waring offered everything we wanted--ceremony under the oaks,four bridal suites, historic house and Manager Julie Ann Oldham is the best. Unfortunately, it rained during the reception, but we were able to have the ceremony under the oaks, and we did use a tent, so it worked out fine. Our guests were in awe of the site with strings of lights, mason jars hanging from the tree and the beauty of the house. It was perfect. Thank you Julie Ann and staff for all your help.

    Legare Waring house is an absolutely beautiful wedding location just outside of charleston. It encapsulates the classic charleston plantation feel without being corny or overbearing.

    Legare is a GORGEOUS wedding venue with wonderful staff and lots of amazing options for the entire wedding day! One of the things that made me choose Legare for our wedding was the use of the amazing house for the entire day for the bridal party to get ready. They also have an amazing "men's quarters" in the downstairs of the house completely separate from where the girls get ready upstairs. There was PLENTY of room to get ready for my entire bridal party, both of our moms, my grandmother and our adorable flower girl. We got there around 9am and had lots of room for food, dresses, hair and makeup, etc etc. It was perfect! We had our ceremony under the Avenue of Oaks and our guests were all amazed, especially since most had never been to Charleston before. We had our reception under a tent on the stone patio and it was lovely! We got extremely lucky with the weather in early April, and absolutely loved the venue! A representative from the venue was there on the day of our event and came to check on both me and the groom during the day to ensure the house was a good temperature, etc. We ran into an issue with the timing of the re-sodding of the main area of lawn outside the patio, and they were extremely accommodating and responsive about the issue and it worked out perfectly! The house worked out perfectly, there were no issues with people using the bathrooms available and our wedding was about 125 guests. The scenery is unbeatable, especially when the weather is beautiful. The only thing to keep in mind is that the venue doesn't provide anything in terms of rentals (tables, chairs, etc) so the fee you pay really is just for the venue and use of the house all day. We loved it, just something to think about because it requires a lot of coordination with other vendors since you have bring everything in with you!

    The Legare Waring House property was an utter dream to be married on! We opted for a Friday wedding because the Saturday price point was quite high for us to consider (however, it all goes towards the park and is money well spent!). The house was comfortable and so beautiful to get ready in on the morning of the wedding, and the groom and groomsmen enjoyed their suite as well. The property is dog friendly, so we had our pup with us to enjoy the day as well. Working with the sales manager, Julie Ann, and site coordinator, Courtney, was a very positive experience from start to finish. They allowed us to peek at a real wedding setup one weekend, and we could enter and plan on the grounds any day before 6pm. The only downside of being married at Legare Waring House is that the hours for weddings are very strict -- 6pm to 11pm, and we feel we could have enjoyed one more hour. A golf cart was at our disposal on the Big Day for our photographer to sweep us to beautiful locations. We are so excited that we will forever be able to visit and relive our marriage at this State Historic Park.

    This venue is absolutely STUNNING! We enjoyed our entire experience, from first contact/site visit to the wedding day. The event team is extremely responsive and helpful throughout the process. Being able to have access to the house the day of was perfect, the bridal party was able to get ready there with the hair/makeup team and relax as there was no last minute commute. We used the Wedding Oak, the patio are and the Avenue of Oaks for our wedding day and it was perfect! I highly recommend this venue, your experience will be top notch!

    What a fabulous venue -- and a National park. The historic home is beautiful and has a groomsmen area and a bridal area for you you all to get ready. When you rent this venue you have use of the house for the entire day at no additional cost!!! Everyone was fabulous to work with and said it was a gorgeous venue.

    We held both the ceremony and reception at this beautiful venue. From the very start, Julieanne and the girls at the Legare Waring House were very helpful and responsive to questions. We held the ceremony under the Avenue of Oaks which provided some relief from the record heat that day! We tented the patio area and had the bar/lounge area towards the pond. The beautiful house with its bridal suites and grooms quarters was just perfect! All the guests commented on the beauty of the venue. It made the day perfect!

    We can't even begin to put into words how beautiful Legare Waring is and what a wonderful experience we had there but we will try! We got married there on April 24th, 2015 and the whole event was beyond magical and everything we dreamed of. A large part of the reason is because of the beauty and intimacy of Legare Waring. Our guests RAVED about how beautiful it was and how they felt like they were in some sort of romantic fairy tale from the start of the wedding to finish!!

    In my somewhat biased opinion, I don't think there is any other wedding venue in Charleston that could top Legare Waring. We used the house the whole day to get ready and everybody there was so friendly and accommodating! With the unparalleled awe inspiring help of our fabulous wedding planner, Sara Cavallon, from Cavallon Celebrations, the whole day was everything we dreamed of and more!! Perdecr weather, the beauty of the Legare and Courtney, the on site coordinator, also helped to contribute to a perfect day! We can't wait to see the photos produced from being at such a beautiful venue!

    We will be back to visit Legare Waring for years to come and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make our wedding a dream come true!! We feel truly blessed!

    Legare Waring House is simply the prettiest venue in Charleston! From the gorgeous house, the avenue of oaks to the surrounding property, you can't find anywhere more beautiful! Julie Ann and the whole staff is so easy to work with and is really ahead of the game with their clients. They really are on top of things the day of as well and have plenty of support if anything is needed. I can not even imagine getting married anywhere else!!!

    We LOVE Julie Ann who manages all of the Charlestowne Landing properties. She is absolutely amazing and wonderful. The venue is beautiful and we can't wait to have our big day there. It's been so nice getting to visit and make use of our complimentary park pass so that we can really get a sense of the place, the house, and how we envision our wedding. All of the people who work at the Legare Waring House in managing its special events have been very kind and attentive. And we love that this venue is still a bit of a hidden gem, though I don't suspect it will be that way for very much longer!

    Legare Waring House is absolutely everything I thought it would be. Unfortunately it rained on my wedding day so I could not get married under the avenue of oaks like we hoped for, but the wedding was still beautiful. It's definitely a plus that they finished the patio around the fountain, I couldn't imagine having to the reception in the grass. Interior of the house is absolutely charming and provided ample space for us to utilize throughout the afternoon and the bridal emergency kit came in handy. Julie Ann and Taylor were also very pleasant and extremely helpful from the beginning! I would definitely recommend Legare!
