5 Incredible Reasons You Should Have a Wickliffe House Wedding

5 Reasons You Should Have a Wickliffe House Wedding

If you’re in the Charleston, South Carolina area and looking for the perfect wedding venue, you should check out The Wickliffe House! This is one of the most popular wedding venues in all of Charleston – rightfully so. This property is 5,000 square feet and features some of the most elegant architecture and décor while staying true to that Charleston southern charm.

In my humble opinion, The Wickliffe House is one of the most amazing and perfect wedding venues that has so much to offer. Say your “I dos” with all your loved ones surrounding you in one of the most beautiful venues in Charleston!


5 reasons you should have a Wickliffe House wedding:

  1. Charleston southern charm

The thing I love the most about this wedding venue is how authentic it is to southern charm. While the building itself has been renovated over the years to bring it back to life, the southern charm is still in there. From the beautiful wood floors, large, elegant windows, large white columns, a spiraling staircase, and so much more. If you and your partner want to showcase your southern roots, this is the place to do it!


2. Intimate wedding venue

Considering this venue has only one ceremony and reception location on the property, this makes it the perfect place for the small, intimate wedding of your dreams! If you want it to be extremely special and unique while being surrounded by your closest friends and family, the Wickliffe House is the perfect venue for your intimate wedding! Enjoy this historic mansion since you’ll have it all to yourself.

The Wickliffe House makes your wedding day even easier by offering on-site catering exclusively from Scratch Kitchen Charleston. With over 20 years of experience catering weddings in the Charleston area, this is one of the top-rated food catering services in the entire area. You and your guests are guaranteed to love the food and beverages they will provide for your special day. Want something specific on your wedding day menu? Just let them know and they will make it happen.


4. Convenient location

The one thing that most people like to consider when choosing a wedding venue is the location and how easy it is to get to and from. Lucky for you, The Wickliffe House is very conveniently located right in downtown Charleston – making it super easy for you and your guests to travel to and from. You are within walking distance from the bustling nightlife on King Street – so no matter what the rest of you and your guest’s plans are for your wedding weekend, you can easily walk or drive wherever you need to!


5. Friendly staff

When it comes to choosing your venue, you want to make sure you and all the staff members work well together. The staff at The Wickliffe House is among the best of the best – from wedding coordinators, the setup and take down crew, and the in-house catering staff, you won’t meet a staff that is better than this one! They will do whatever it takes to make sure your wedding day is exactly how you dreamed it would be!

hi, i'm danielle—

In the past 10+ years as a Wedding & Portrait Photographer, I’ve found that, aside from arming myself with my cameras to catch swoon-worthy moments of my couples on their day, I’m also bringing a few other unexpected things. 

Like my tough love mom-voice that will keep your bridal party in check, my air of calm if you’re feeling overwhelmed, and the corniest jokes so no one has the jitters in front of the camera!

Because so much more goes into getting those gorgeous wedding photos than just hitting “click!”

and I'm not just bringing my camera to your big day.
