  • I had a truly wonderful experience at Middleton Place and highly recommend it for someone looking for a beautiful and charming wedding venue. Yes, there is no question that there are many beautiful wedding venue options in Charleston, and I toured all of them before selecting Middleton Place. The one thing that stood out about Middleton was their genuinely kind and helpful staff and the flexibility/endless possibilities that this venue offered compared to all of the others. You should know that I had really high expectations, and I'm serious when I tell you they were ALL exceeded. Everything from the staff, the food and venue was top notch and all contributed to our outstanding experience. The Special Group Services Manager, Samantha W., was so sweet, amazingly accommodating (especially with some of our unusual requests) and worked through every single detail with me and my wedding planner to ensure everything was on track, organized and set up for overall perfection the day o...

  • All the food from the Hor d'oeuvres at cocktail hour to then main course for dinner were excellent. The portions were plentiful in size and there was more than enough for our guests. The bartenders were very friendly and accommodating to all the guests. I don't remember there ever being a line after the initial start of the reception.

  • This venue is beautiful! When you book your wedding day, you get use of all the grounds. We were able to have our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception in different sites. You will also not have to worry about have three weddings on one day (like at a nearby venue). We did not hear a single complaint about the venue as all the guests said it was beautiful. It is a little more of and expensive venue, however, with the booking you get many added values which makes it worth the extra cost. If you want a true southern plantation wedding, this is the spot to do it.

  • Oh how I loved getting married at Middleton Place! We have already decided that we will return each year for our honeymoon. It is that magical! This was a destination wedding and I cannot believe that I was even MORE enchanted than I thought I would be once I arrived at the venue. It is a one of kind experience and the staff that I worked with made it all happen seamlessly. We had stormy weather and moved the ceremony inside at the pavilion (where the reception was to be held) and it was gorgeous. I don't mind one bit that we moved inside. The pictures are stunning, the grounds and pavilion are beautiful, and the Inn is AMAZING.

  • We couldn't have picked a more beautiful location for our destination wedding! Middleton Place is one the most breathtaking landscapes, so it just seemed perfect to get married there. We had our ceremony in the Octagonal Garden, cocktail hour at the Rice Mill Pond, and ceremony in the Pavilion. It was perfect!

  • When my husband first took me our to Middleton Place on a date, I absolutely fell in love with the plantation, and I knew that this was where I wanted to marry the man of my life. When we started looking into booking Middleton, we were so happy with the friendliness and staff. We first met with Drew and Chris, who gave us a full tour of the gardens, giving us historical facts about the plantation, and suggestions for the wedding and reception sites. Once we booked the venue, I mostly worked with Chris Wittman throughout the process. Chris was WONDERFUL!! He was very prompt to respond to emails and phone calls, and even let me know when he would be out of town. He worked so well with all my questions and requests. He was absolutely fantastic to work with. And being the bride, with all the craziness of planning my own wedding, it was very refreshing to have someone so dependable. On the rehearsal day and actual wedding day, we worked with Drea Turpin. She was so helpful and knowledgable.... Read more

  • My wedding on 9/10/11 at the Inn at Middleton Place was phenomenal. James and his whole staff are extremely professional and they took care of every need. Our wedding would not have gone as smoothly without their caring staff. The set up of the Inn is stunning and every guest was amazed by the beauty of the location and the conditions of the grounds. The food was excellent and was enjoyed by every guest. I would without hesitation offer up my highest recommendation for this wedding venue

  • We could not have asked for a more gorgeous and absolutely perfect setting for our wedding. They were going through some staff changes but at the end of the day we were always taken care of. People are still talking about how beautiful our location was. Thanks for a phenominal setting for our wedding!

  • I fell in love with Middleton Place as it was the first venue that we saw. Every other place could not compare with my vision of my dream wedding. Unfortunately, experience of my wedding was far from being a dream. First, we purchased Chinese Sky lanterns to use as our sendoff which we had okayed with the property and Sam ahead of time. We learned, not from Middleton, but from my wedding planner, 3 days prior to my wedding that we would not be allowed to use them. Evidently, they had made the "rule" a month prior but failed to let us know. We had to pay extra money for a parking attendant that was not even present and we rented buses to transport guests anyways. We had wanted to rent rooms at the Middleton Inn and they claimed they were giving us a discount but when my fiancee called to see about the prices from what they quoted us, we learned that it was cheaper to book the rooms directly and not have a room block after all. It took them forever to get us the contract for the r... Read more

  • For many couples, venue selection is one of the most difficult decisions to make. I consider myself quite fortunate that I knew from a young age that I wanted to be married here. I am even more fortunate that my groom agreed with and that my father bent over backward to make my dream a reality. Unfortunately, the policies and staff at Middleton Place made planning a rather unpleasant experience. They are very clear about what they will and won't do and there is no flexibility whatever. Additionally, they charge what I consider to be outrageous premiums for the few things that they ARE willing to do - between MULTIPLE site venue fees and compulsory chair rentals, I would have expected a much higher level of service. The staff is at best unorganized and in my darker bridal moments I feared they were even colluding against us. For example, we were told months before our wedding that our dog was permitted to be part of the ceremony and photos. We arrived for our rehearsal, only t... Read more

  • We did our ceremony at Middleton Place Plantation, and had our reception at the restaurant. Additionally, my bridal party and guests all stayed at Middleton Inn, so we worked with them quite extensively. The plantation is beautiful. No doubt, it will make for a beautiful event and photos. However, the event staff for Middleton Place, while generally polite, could not have been more disorganized and unhelpful. My wedding was double-booked and required our out-of-town wedding date to be changed (along with all our guests travel!). While there was some financial compensation for this mistake, it didn't begin to make up for the inconvenience. I had to mention items many times before they were documented correctly. For example, I believe they sent me the wedding contract 5 times in one day before they got the pricing and details to match what we had previously discussed through email and on the phone. I had to keep mentioning the same items over and over again. It took SO much eff... Read more

  • Middleton Place Plantation was the prettiest of alll the places that my husband and I looked at to get married. We changed our date with only seven weeks notice and they were able to fit us in which was great. Our ceremony was supposed to be outside, but it rained. We paided an arm and a leg for the ceremony to be outside as well as the cocktail hour. I understand that we could not get anything back for the venue, but I didn't think we should have to pay for the services we didn't use, such as the ceremony chair set up or the bar set up fee. The service during the meal was great and the food was very yummy.

  • For most of the planning portion of my wedding I regretting my decision to have my wedding at Middleton Place. It started after the person I had booked with left and then the rules began changing and new contracts were attempted to be forced onto me, which were not in my contract and thankfully my father is an attorney and stood up for me. It was virtually impossible to get in touch with my contact there and she was extremely rude when she would get back in touch with me. I am an easy person to get along with but it got to the point where I refused to talk to them and would only communicate through my planner or my mother. Middleton Place is absolutely beautiful but I would rethink having my wedding there because of the staff....

  • I agree with Laura's post. In May/June of 2010 when I started getting details the package was one way but then Middleton changed their policy and had new contracts. Was not the simple/what we were looking for all in one deal. Thankfully Middleton Place hired an employee who knew what she was doing so in the end it worked out. A wedding planner was also needed because the new policies left out the help/support. Our planner really pulled it together for us. I feel management really needs to rethink their services so they can reduce the stress on their customers and make the experience more pleasant.

  • Middleton Place is one of the most stunningly beautiful places I have ever been in my life, and the pictures from my wedding turned out beautifully. However that being said I don't think I would host another party there. The help makes it very clear exactly what they do and do not do, and beyond that they wont budge one iota. The lady didnt even come to the rehersal or to the wedding itself to make sure everything went as planned. So while the gardens and location are breathtaking, in my personal experience I would not go back there to host anything else.
