More than I imagined for my Wedding day!Reviewed on 10/06/2013
I would recommend Legend Oaks to any Bride who is looking for a Beautiful Southern Wedding that is affordable. Affordability with no cuts in service. Theresia, the Wedding Planner, and the staff are friendly and make you feel like you are the only Bride they have. Your Rehearsal, chairs and tables are included in the price. I had my Bridal Portrait taken on the grounds months before with no charge. The food was delicious and well priced. You are in control of the Bar, no surprises and well priced. Bartenders very personable. Theresia is there for your Rehearsal and the entire day of your Wedding. She helps you every step of the way with planning. I actually enjoyed the planning process that I was dreading from what I saw my recently married friends go through. My pictures are beautiful with so many great locations onsite for pictures. Theresia and the staff set-up everything the day of the wedding. I was able to just get dressed and enjoy those hours before the wedding with my bridemaids and family. This meant a lot to me. Theresia even brought me pics on her phone of my cake and gift table to see if they were the way I wanted them. She just really removed any stress and genuinely cared about my day going the way I visioned it. She made a sign for me last minute that I couldn't make up my mind and just pushed to the side. She helped me decide what to say she wrote it in calligraphy and sat by my ceremony site. She just goes out of her way to help. I can't say enough about Legend Oaks. They have a beautiful Venue but equally is the service and how they treat you like family that made my Wedding day more than I imagined.
Mother of the BrideReviewed on 7/10/2015
The wedding was May 2, 2015. It was a perfect weather, smooth performance of a wedding party of 10 bridesmaids /10 groomsmen. We had met with Theresa only 2 times to go over our plans and a tasting of the menue we choose. We live 2 hours away from Charleston so time was valuable. Theresa communicated with us frequently with e-mails and amazingly it all came together just right. I rented the Tudor Oaks Bed & Breakfast which was the only onsite place to lodge. That was a lifesaver putting all the girls in one place close by the day of the wedding. The decorations were put up just as we envisioned and all the staff treated us like we were VIP's. I got many compliments on the food. It was delicious. Theresa managed the ceremony down to the last dance seamlessly . I never had to worry about a thing. The guys played a round of golf that am and Theresa arranged it all to the wishes of the groom. It all went by too fast. We had a videographer and a photographer and the location with the beautiful trees and the golf course made beautiful pictures. As far as a destination wedding it was perfect for my daughter thanks to Theresa and her amazing staff . I would definitely recommend Legend Oaks to anyone who wants the beauty of the Charleston trees and Southern hospitality
Thank you so much Theresia for everything!! I really don't know what I would have done without you. You remained professional, calm (even when informing me my Videographer was in jail just hours before my wedding..ha) and an overall delight! The venue was beautiful which made for great photos. Thank you again to all the staff who made our night possible!
Would recommend this venue for it's southern charm and affordability. The wedding Planner, Mrs. Ware is very professional and helpful. The grounds are beautiful and yet still affordable.
I had my wedding this past summer. Our ceremony was under the oak trees and it was beautiful! Our pictures are wonderful. There are so many pretty picture opportunities with all the oak trees. Theresia Ware was an absolute blessing with planning . She handled the rehearsal and was in complete control on the day of our wedding. She worked with us to get our budget where we needed to be. Our other vendors even told me how wonderful she was to work with . We were so happy with the food and the staff was so helpful! I would highly recommend this venue for an affordable southern wedding!!
My daughter planned her wedding at Legend Oaks in the Spring of this year. I was so pleased with how the Wedding Planner, Theresia was so accommodating and sincere during the year of planning. She goes out of her way to be helpful. I was very happy with the food and the day went so smooth. They allowed us to have signature drinks at the bar . The staff were all so professional and courteous! I was very pleased with our experience and would recommend Legend Oaks for a Southern style wedding with very affordable pricing .
Delicious food, great staff, and perfect location! Our wedding here was a dream come true! The setting was beautiful and full of Charleston's southern charm. The staff from the servers to the bartenders were all amazing. Theresia, the wedding coordinator was most awesome! She is always so sweet, creative, accommodating, and incredibly helpful! I would not have put our reception in anyone else's hands, and I would not hesitate to recommend them!
We had a wonderful, fun, easy going wedding. The event manager, Theresia Ware was amazing and Legend Oaks made our wedding simple to plan. Highly recommend.

I was really stressing and this was a nice surprise from the stories I have heard from friends who have been married recently! I was able to get dressed onsite. The staff was friendly and helpful to the bridal party and our guests. The ceremony site is beautiful and the food was delicious! Theresia handled the entire event and took care of all the timing on events with the photographer and the DJ. The bartender was awesome she handled it just the way we had discussed with Theresia so our tab was the amount we were expecting. We were able to truly enjoy or day without worrying about vendors or set-up. They do it all for you! I am so happy that we selected Legend Oaks! They are truly a Southern Gem and still affordable!
My perfect Wedding at Legend OaksReviewed on 7/29/2015
My husband and I had our wedding and reception at Legend Oaks Golf ClubApril 4, 2015. This was the only venue we actually went and visited and we fell in love immediately. I cant even come to words about Theresia the wedding coordinator. She made our entire journey up to the wedding day a breeze, I don't know what I would have done without her. Her and her team brought every idea and vision I had dreamt up to life. It was absolutely beautiful!! The staff at Legend Oaks really go above and beyond to please the bride and groom, well really to please every single person attending the wedding, and they did just that. The food was amazing, the gold course background was breathtaking, and every other detail of the grounds just adding that much extra charm to our day. We still have people complementing us on our big day. Thank you so much to the stuff at Legend Oaks for making our day a day we will remember for the rest of our lives!!!!
What a beautiful day! The green was full of life and the constant flow of breeze made the ceremony so comfortable. It was magical to get married under live oak trees and watch the venue take on a life of it's own because of the flawless setting. We couldn't have asked for a better day! Thank you Theresia for working effortlessly from the day we met, and making it even easier for the coordinators to do what they needed to do. Not only were we pleased but the guests enjoyed being outdoors and how pleasant Legend Oaks is to the eye! Mr. & Mrs. Taylor
Couldn't Be More SatisfiedReviewed on 7/10/2015
My daughter's wedding on June 20, 2015, at Legend Oaks Golf Club was simply fantastic. The unique quality of this venue is that Theresia Ware and her staff are so friendly and accommodating, we felt like we were part of their family. The rehearsal and dinner the evening before the big day was outstanding. In the hours leading up to the ceremony we were allowed to use two plush rooms on the second floor of the clubhouse to dress and prepare. Theresia was nearby and kept checking in on us to make sure everyone was relaxed and our preparation was on schedule. The ceremony setting under the Oak trees was visually stunning. Our guests were comfortable and wanted for nothing. The reception area set-up was beautiful. The food was delicious and well-presented. Legend Oaks staff who worked the wedding were smiling and cordial the entire time. The event, from beginning to end, was implemented professionally and ran flawlessly. I highly recommend Legend Oaks Golf Club as a wedding ceremony and reception venue with Theresia Ware in charge of the wedding planning. I couldn't be more happy for my daughter and son-in-law, or more satisfied with their choice to use Legend Oaks and Theresia Ware for their wedding.
Best DecisionReviewed on 7/08/2015 Bethany M
I am so glad we chose Legend Oaks Golf Club. It made for a very low stress venue (I'm the bride, I'm always stressed). I knew that Thersia was a coordinator I could trust. The food was great! The service was great! The linens were beautiful and so was the set up for both ceremony and reception. All the workers there truly love their job and it shows. I highly recommend this venue!

Zanna & Justin Johnson WeddingReviewed on 11/22/2014
The day was beautiful Ms Theresia E. Ware, and her staff at Legend Oaks made the wedding beyond our dreams. Everything we asked for and more was provided to us. The guests complement the team also saying how attentive and helpful they had been. The meal was fabulous and received the same complements from the guests that attended. We are very grateful for the help and support the team provided throughout the year of planning and up to the wedding day.
Excellent Wedding VenueReviewed on 11/10/2014 Annalise L
Legend Oaks is an excellent wedding venue, with the beautiful old south charm of the magnificent live oak trees. Theresia, the event coordinator is absolutely wonderful! She made our wedding day as smooth as it could possible be, even with the stress of rain she made the ceremony look and flow beautifully, truly thankful for her wonderful touch! I can't say enough good things about Theresia and the beautiful ceremony location of Legend Oaks!
All I was looking for!!Reviewed on 10/31/2014
This venue is so beautiful to be so affordable ! I can't say enough about how easy they made everything. I was planning my wedding from another state and Our wedding day went so smooth ! The food was wonderful. Mrs. Ware, the events manager was so helpful and doesn't miss any details. She coordinated all the other vendors. They also offer golf outings for the guys that is really nice and the course was beautiful! The sunset and the course were such an awesome backdrop for our pictures. I am so happy that we selected Legend Oaks for our Wedding! I highly recommend this venue !!

A beautiful venue for a summer wedding!Reviewed on 10/29/2014 Ashton V
I got married at Legend Oaks June of 2014. There were little things here and there but all in all... it was perfect! I'm not from the area so I actually came across it from different wedding websites including The Knot! I was looking for a simple, elegant place near Charleston without the "Charleston" price. I also wanted to get married under a big tree and well, if you visit this venue, you'll see why I chose it. As the name would suggest, there are beautiful oak trees everywhere! This is also a golf course so if you're into that, they offer a pretty good deal. I didn't interact much with the staff other than the wedding coordinator, Theresia. She was wonderful! Personable, nice, and has a lot of great ideas and experience! Working with her made the process much, much easier, especially since I was planning from another state. The day of the wedding, everything went smoothly and as planned. Theresia coordinated with my photographers, DJ, ushers, and everyone involved behind the scenes so I didn't have to worry about a thing. The entire venue was all set up when I got there, catering is on site so that was all handled and ready as well. The appetizers and dinner were tasty, I was surprised at all the options they had to choose from! The reception site (if you choose The Pavillion) is literally a few steps away from the ceremony site (under beautiful oak trees) which makes it super convenient for your guests! I could go on and on about how Legend Oaks was perfect for my big day but to sum it all up, the site is beautiful, the staff are super nice and friendly, the food is good and it's convenient! I would recommend Legend Oaks to any bride looking for an outdoor wedding with a Charleston feel without the Charleston price!:)
Southern & AffordableReviewed on 10/29/2014
I fell in love with this venue because they had the whole package that we were looking for. It was beautiful, in our moderate budget and it has the Southern Style we wanted for our Wedding. Theresia, the Wedding Planner helped us so much because we were planning from another state. We made two trips down for consults and the rest over a year of planning was over the phone and emails. Thank-you so much Legend Oaks for making our Wedding Day all that we were wanting!! I can't say enough about how pleased we are with Legend Oaks. I would definitely recommend this venue for the whole package.
Wonderful Memories!!Reviewed on 10/25/2014
I started planning my Wedding over a year ago and fell in love with how beautiful this Venue is. Theresia, the Events & Wedding Manager made the process so enjoyable from our first consult. She would always remind me to stop and enjoy the process as much the day! She helped us to stay in our budget and designed the Wedding we wanted. We were able to have our Rehearsal Dinner right after the rehearsal and it was all set and ready! We also booked an outing for our Groomsmen to play golf the morning of the rehearsal. The course is beautiful if you are a golfer. My Wedding Day was wonderful and all I had wished for. The photographer even told me how smooth the day was going. The staff at Legend Oaks are friendly and accommodating. The Bridal Room had fresh flowers and our appetizers were ready when we arrived to get dressed. Theresia handled our Ceremony directing. The food at the Reception was great. My pictures are so pretty and there are so many beautiful natural spots for pictures. We couldn't be happier with our experience with Legend Oaks! Our families are still talking about what a beautiful Wedding it was.
