Middleton Place "Most Romantic Wedding Venue"

Posted: Updated:

On Wednesday, Feb. 27, the wedding website Brides.com announced its picks for the "50 Most Romantic Wedding Venues in the U.S.," and Middleton Place was ranked #38.

The National Historic Landmark was the only property in South Carolina to make the list, and joins such notable venues as the Beverly Hills Hotel in California, Blackberry Farm in Tennessee, and the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.

Brides.com editors described the list as follows: "Whether you're marrying in Michigan or Maui, searching for a fairy-tale castle or a soaring city loft, we've compiled a list of the dreamiest spots in the country to say 'I do.'"

The website wrote about Middleton Place the perfect place for "southern belles dreaming of a Gone with the Wind-style wedding amid live oaks draped with Spanish moss." It also describes some of the 11 different wedding sites on property, such as the parterre overlooking the Butterfly Lakes.

"We are very proud to be recognized as one of the 50 Most Romantic Wedding Venues in the U.S. and to be the sole representative in Charleston, a city famously known for destination weddings," says Randy Sonoski, Director of Special Group Services at Middleton Place. "This recognition coincides with the announcement of new direct flights from Boston and New York into Charleston by Jet Blue, and Middleton Place looks forward to hosting many more romantic weddings in the future."

The Gardens, House Museum and Plantation Stableyards at Middleton Place are owned and operated by the Middleton Place Foundation, a 501-c-(3) not-for-profit trust established in 1974, that also manages the Edmondston-Alston House Museum at 21 East Battery in downtown Charleston.

The Foundation's mission is to sustain the highest levels of preservation and interpretation for the National Historic Landmark, rich in classical and romantic garden design, horticulture and history.
