Iva, SC. Standing proud upon the gentle slope of a green hill, this stunning white barn venue is a destination in and of itself. Couples seeking a destination that combines location, style and great facilities need look no further than its white walls. The story of Heyward Manor is a true family affair that spans generations of the Black clan. Brothers Don and Jake built the venue on Charlies Creek Nursery, an expansive tree farm that they founded with their father Heyward Black. More than just a barn, this gorgeous space was built to make wedding dreams come true, including those of the family. Indeed the first wedding hosted at the venue was that of Heyward Black’s granddaughter. Those celebrating their big day will be struck by the immense feeling of space upon entering the manor whose ceiling reaches to celestial heights. Its white color-palette and huge windows create a scene full of light, contrasted by rugged wooden beams. Touches such as antique furniture and crystal chandeliers add an elegance to the setting only paralleled by the grounds outside. The venue is a photographer's delight and the perfect scene for a tasteful photoshoot full of rustic character. Those exchanging vows can pose on the balcony overlooking the manor, or down by the waterfront for idyllic photos. As the sun falls and celebrations continue into the night, couples can take a break from the festivities in the private bridal suite. This hidden space features stylish touches of white and gold, and is also ideal as a get-ready room. Those hosting their big day at Heyward Manor can expect a warm welcome from the family, and expert support throughout. The management is happy to welcome outside vendors and can provide access to a fully-equipped catering kitchen. They can also advise guests as to the best lodgings available in the area.
