Wingate is the perfect place for a wedding! The oak trees with the pond make for such a magical setting. Sarah is such a pleasure to work with- she is so sweet and very responsive to my many emails! The venue comes with a house for the bridal p...
arty to get ready, a separate "house" for the guys, a tent for your reception as well as some tables and chairs! Sarah had some great recommendations for me! One thing that helped a lot was using Durham school services to bus our guests to the site since it's a good drive from downtown Charleston (and way more affordable than other rental buses although less glamorous).
I am so happy we chose this venue! It was great that we could have the wedding ceremony by the pond under the oak and the reception on the same site under the tent!
Compared to other plantation-type wedding venues in Charleston this one is equally as wonderful but way more affordable! I highly recommend Wingate Plantation! We enjoyed working with Sarah and our time there to the fullest!

Wingate is the most magical place EVER! It was so perfect with the trees, tent and long lane. Although it's a good 20-30 minute commute from Charleston it was worth it. We ended having vintage buses take our guests out and it just made the expe...

Loved it!! Wingate is so beautiful and Sarah was wonderful to work with. We really wanted an outdoor venue, and Wingate offered us a beautiful outdoor space that also had many conveniences such as tent, nice bathrooms, dressing room, and cate...

We had a 175 person wedding ceremony and reception at Wingate in early June. We were blown away with the venue itself, and the owner/manager, Sarah, who was professional and very responsive throughout our time working with her. It ended up rain...
ing in the middle of our ceremony, however, we felt nothing on our day was ruined by the rain. The tent stayed extremely dry and Sarah let us borrow two clear umbrellas she had on site! We loved this venue for a backdrop for our wedding and would highly recommend it!

Wingate Plantation was the wedding venue of my dreams. It's truly a beautiful and charming location. From the start, Sarah was more amazing to work with than I ever would have imagined. She is extremely accommodating, patient, talented, respons...
ive and kindhearted. We were able to get ready in the small farm house on the plantation where our beauty team came and the photographer started. Being able to spend the morning in the house with all my favorite gals before the ceremony was one of my favorite memories from the whole day! Sarah also was our day of coordinator for wedding. She brought every single vision and dream I had for the wedding to life and for that, I am forever grateful. Sarah was on site all day setting up décor and working with vendors, all while keeping everyone on schedule and tackling any issues that arose. I could not have done this process without her. She truly ensured the day was perfect and she did a flawless job. I would recommend Sarah and Wingate Plantation to EVERYONE. I wouldn't change a thing about my wedding day given the chance. THANK YOU SARAH!!!!!!!

This plantation is the perfect blend of quaint and grandiose. From start to finish, our experience with Sarah booking, planning and executing was top-notch. She did a great job explaining what was included with the rental price, what services s...
he and her team could offer as well as suggestions.
We were offered the option to host our rehearsal the night before, as well as utilize the grounds for engagement photos. We were also offered a 10% military discount, which is very rare in Charleston from venues and vendors alike.
Upon arriving wedding morning, the site was just as she had described (sprayed for bugs, clean, supplies stocked) and she was there the entire day. She lent us her office space in the farmhouse for our hair and makeup team to get to work. Sarah was integral in the set-up of the grounds, and though we did not use her services for day-of planning, she jumped in to help all day long.
She was there throughout the night making sure everything was going smoothly during and after our event from the rental breakdown to communicating items left behind to double check if we needed them. Our friends and family from Michigan were truly treated to a unique southern experience thanks to Sarah and her family property at Wingate Plantation.
I wish we could do it all over again to experience the pure outdoor beauty.

If I could give Wingate 10 stars I would! The venue is absolutely breathtaking! Many wedding guests raved about how beautiful our venue was. The outdoor church pews gave it a real wow factor. The rental fee also comes with many rentals includin...

Sarah and her staff were excellent on the wedding day as well as leading up to it. She kept everyone in line while remaining friendly and easygoing throughout the whole event.

bsolutely the best! She was so responsive, helpful and professional. Everything from the first phone call to the wedding day exceeded our expectations. We received compliments from all of our vendors about how professional and organized Sarah is. The venue, itself, is absolutely breathtaking!! It is perfect if you want the same location for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. All of our guests could not say enough about the location. We are so incredibly grateful to Sarah and that we had our wedding at Wingate Plantation. Everything was perfect and Sarah helped us make our wedding everything we wanted.
