The Old Wide Awake Plantation is a wedding venue located in Hollywood, SC. Situated just off of Route 17, the property lies between Charleston and Savannah. This waterfront estate has undergone a number of renovations since it first opened its doors in 1991. Today, the extended patio and sheltered, two-tiered porch provide guests with a substantial amount of space to host outdoor events. This mansion has been the host of many events since the early 90s. Overlooking the Intercoastal Waterway at the Stono River, this venue offers wide views of the calm waters. The ivy-covered walls provide a setting for photos of the wedding party. Guests can unwind with a game of golf at the nearby Stono Ferry Golf Course. This estate caters to both small and large wedding and rehearsal events. The tall trees that line the entrance to the property create a natural setting for an intimate ceremony. The addition of outdoor market lights creates a suitable setting for late-evening alfresco parties, as the bright reflections bounce across the dark water. Sheltered space outdoors can be arranged to accommodate a variety of weather conditions. A large tent/gazebo can be assembled over the recently installed patio area to establish an outdoor space for dining and dancing. The mansion itself sits in the center of the property, surrounded by a porch that wraps around the entire exterior of the building. This 2,500-square-foot deck area can accommodate a variety of celebrations from cocktail hours to wedding toasts. The brick steps leading up to the main entrance are covered in dark green ivy, quite familiar around Charlestons most historic homes and properties, and can be bedecked with glowing lanterns in the evenings. The Old Wide Awake wedding venue offers a separate wedding-planning service, where their experienced staff can assist in finding the right setup for your event. You and your partner will be given a tour of the property and encouraged to discuss your ideas. This allows the team to gain a genuine understanding of your individual style and your expectations for the day. Sound and lighting apparatus can be added to parties to ensure that every aspect of the event is experienced through high-quality equipment. The wedding planner can take care of the setup and breakdown of the event to make the process easier for you on the big day. Our venue does ask that you have a professional wedding planner. This venue also accommodates pet-owners, ensuring that no member of the family is left out.
