  • My daughter was married at Middleton Place in November, 2018 & it was absolute perfection. Darby was a gem, she always answered our questions & called us back promptly, she was always so cheerful and professional that it was such a pleasure to work with her. The staff during the tasting was phenomenal and the food was superb. We had the Ceremony at the Octagonal Gardens under the Oak Tree, Cocktail Hour at the Crane Pool & Reception at The Pavillion. The buffet included: She Crab Soup, Prime Rib, Pulled Pork Shoulder, Mac & Cheese, Bean Cassoulet, Wild Mushroom Risotto. Loved the Smoked Filet Mignon appetizers, it was all great. The bar and bartenders were exceptional. Best Wedding Ever !! Thank You Darby & Middleton Place. Also booked a room for the hair & make-up & we had a lovely time.

  • Our daughter (the bride) is local to Charleston, so this was not a destination wedding for her (although it was for many of our guests). She visited several venues before deciding on Middleton Place for her fairy tale wedding. We absolutely could not have been more pleased! Many of the guests who attended the wedding said that it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. We had 150 guests in attendance, the ceremony was in the Octagonal Garden overlooking the Ashley River, the cocktail hour was in the Sundial Garden and the reception was in the brand new Pavilion (ours was the first wedding there). We worked with Jessie and then Sam (both of whom were phenomenal and completely tuned in to our preferences), and the planning was easy thanks to our wedding planner Candice. The natural beauty of this venue is the draw --- it is spectacular at all times of the year. We didn't have a great rain plan, but carefully watched the forecast in the event that we would need to a... Read more

  • Could not have possibly asked for a better wedding experience! My partner, Jeremy and I both love Charleston and we both love architecture. Upon seeing a Facebook post from a friend that visited The Inn at Middleton Place, our interests were peaked and we had to drive out to see this place for ourselves. When we got to The Inn, we just walked around and completely fell in love with the grounds. The hammocks hanging from the large trees with Spanish moss over looking the Ashley River provided a most serene backdrop. We decided to take a tour of the gardens and after our tour, we stopped into the restaurant for a drink and asked the bartender, "Do you ever hold weddings at the Inn rather than in the gardens?" When she said "yes," we were incredibly excited. She directed us to an Events Coordinator named Darby Poulos. We immediately fell in love with Darby. She was so considerate and genuine that we booked a date right then and there....two years in advance. Over the following two years, ... Read more

  • We have worked with Mr. Potry and his staff for a few years now and they make our Prom better and better each year. They are so accomodating to the needs and crazy requests that our students make and we certainly appreciate it. Afterall, it is their night!

  • The Middleton Place was the perfect ceremony site for us. We had a small wedding of 20 guests and each person was in awe of the gardens. There is no way to have a bad photograph at Middle Place; every view is breathtaking and we chose to do a destination wedding in Charleston based on the beauty of this plantation. We worked with Drea and she was fantastic! Every question was answered promptly and thoroughly. Planning a DIY destination wedding required far more work than we anticipated; coordinating with Drea was the easiest part of our planning process. Random word of reason...it's pricey...but EVERY Charleston SC venue is! We looked at historic buildings, plantations, private mansions, beach rentals, etc.....For the beauty and service, Middleton Place is worth every penny. Relatively speaking, the prices are reasonable and fair. Keep in mind that if you choose a Sunday or a weekday you could save a pretty penny....and if you have a few dates that you're debating between it might ... Read more

  • While the grounds are stunning at The Inn at Middleton Place, we hit several snags during and after our stay for our wedding. The front desk mistakenly charged guests we had already paid for and the first few days of our honeymoon were spent trying to straighten everything out, even though we had been in communication about this for an entire year prior. In trying to fix this, we were made to feel like we were an inconvenience and bothering them. Also, the front desk neglected to hand out many of the welcome gifts for our guests at check-in, including my husband, the groom. All in all, the grounds are breathtaking but I sincerely wish the staff were better trained to handle such special occasions

  • My wife and I eloped at Middleton Place in October, and it was an absolutely breathtaking setting. The weather was beautiful, the grounds were well-manicured, and each one of the ceremony locations would have been a perfect spot (we decided on the Octagonal Garden). It was also nice having the inn and restaurant on the grounds, which made our stay that much more memorable. Also, our "payment" for the venue was actually a donation-in-kind to the non-profit Middleton Place Foundation, which goes to a good cause and gives us a membership for a year. All around a great experience!

  • It's a lovely venue, the catering was superb, food excellent and Darby was very pleasant to work with. My only surprise was for the cost of the venue, $8000, they wouldn't replant annuals that died in an unexpected freeze 3 weeks prior in the octagonal garden where the ceremony was to be held. Had they spent $200 or so on that it would have been perfect.

  • Middleton Place was an absolute dream location for my wedding. While we had no control over the weather, we lucked out and had the most beautiful day and our guests were able to enjoy the gorgeous gardens and breathtaking views Middleton Place has to offer. Middleton Place is not cheap, but it's worth every penny!

  • I am a Charleston native and have dreamed of having my wedding at Middleton Place for years. I am fortunate to have a husband that is just as enamored with the location as I am. Even though we visited many other venues, Middleton was always, hands down, the favorite. We were drawn to Middleton for its picturesque views, beautiful gardens and sense of heritage and history. We also loved the fact that if we booked a wedding a Middleton, we would have the grounds to ourselves and our wedding guests with no other weddings scheduled on the same day. On our wedding day, there happened to be a couple eloping on the property, right where my husband and I were about to have our first look. (You’ll find her terrible review below). I hate the fact that her “highly rated elopement service” did not even sign a contract with Middleton and did not follow the proper procedure to ensure a stress free day for her. I am so grateful for Sam (Middleton Place event coordinator) and her team fo... Read more

  • I worked with a private, highly rated elopement service to plan my Middleton place ceremony. The place is gorgeous but unfortunately Middleton’s treatment of our party made for a very nerve-wracking experience. Immediately following our ceremony, my family was approached by the COO of Middleton and told we would need to stay out of the way of another bride who would be arriving within the hour. Our photographer, who has worked with Middleton before, said sure, we will do photos and move on. When the COO approached us for the 3rd time to ask us to "move along", I finally stepped in and informed him that our coordinator had arranged prior permission to be there, to which he replied that he had no record of our booking. I knew at that point that something was very wrong, but he was apologetic, I gave him the names of our coordinators, and we finished our photos and went off to enjoy the rest of our night. The next morning I was shocked to receive an alert that the Inn had charged my... Read more

    responded with the following comments.

    Middleton Place, a non-profit National Historic Landmark, as most any wedding location, does require a contract and advance payment for any/all events to be held on property. Any qualified wedding coordinator should be aware of such policies – especially ones who claim to have done business with the property before. It is unfortunate that your coordinators assured you that you had access to Middleton Place and I am sorry that they probably took money from you with that assurance. Middleton Place does not consider voice messages – whether left or not – as a fully executed contract of agreement and therefore does not assume responsibility for an elopement that was not approved to be on property. The policy at Middleton Place is that with a signed contract, and proper payments made, then only one wedding will take place on a given day. As there was already a scheduled and contracted wedding already taking place on your chosen day, one can understand why there was extra attention paid to your wedding party. Every intention was made and every courtesy extended to you and your wedding party as not to bring a cloud over your special day. However, when repeatedly asked to move along as to not interfere with the contracted couple’s scheduled “First Look” and photos, and repeatedly continued to take pictures, there was no other option than to charge you for using the venue. The charges were removed, your officiant and wedding planner have been contacted and only the wedding planner has neglected to return phone calls for further discussion. As we discussed with you on the phone to explain the above and apologized for any stress it may have caused you, we hoped that this all had been resolved.

  • Middleton is a beautiful setting and your pictures will truly be unforgettable. With several gardens to choose from to host your wedding ceremony, you really can’t go wrong. Well not until you actually book the venue… The horror is hidden behind the venue staff and the lack of customer service skills throughout the wedding process. Middleton does not care that you paid $2,500 to book their venue, nor do they care that you will be paying them for the food and drinks. After sending emails back and forth regarding the contract, set up, services, etc… Drea Turpin, our contact, was completely UNAVAILABLE. Emails were ignored or lost, calls were not returned and when frustration was expressed to her, she could only reply that she was not a wedding planner. She is not a wedding planner but she is the venue coordinator. It is rightfully expected that after paying that kind of money for mere lawn chairs and a room to rent for a few hours, that she could try to put some effort into cus... Read more
