Having your wedding here will provide both you and your guests with an unbelievably memorable experience. The grounds of the Plantation are the perfect setting, with endless rows of Camelia Sinensis tea plants and huge, incomparable Oak Trees.
You can choose to have your ceremony under the draping branches of the Plantation’s oldest Live Oak, known as the “wedding tree” or in a more open location, surrounded by acres and acres of breathtaking tea plants.
The Plantation is such a naturally beautiful setting. Every aspect of the grounds will lend to the beauty of your wedding day. Even the entrance to the Plantation is unbelievably enchanting with its draping Oaks forming an almost perfect archway welcoming your guests.
Our Pavilion, located in the tranquil tea fields, makes for a picturesque reception location.

The Pavilion sits in one of the most accessible areas on the grounds and has overhead lighting and ceiling fans to help create a breeze on those warm summer days.
The front porch to our Plantation Gift Shoppe can be staged to either make the perfect setting for a cocktail hour or greeting location for your arriving guests. If you’re having a smaller wedding, the front porch could also be the ideal location to host your entire reception. The Live Oaks surrounding this space are shady and inviting providing plenty of ideal and picturesque places for additional tables and seating.

This will provide your guests safe transportation to your wedding venue of choice, while also allowing them the unique and entertaining experience of touring more of our scenic 127-acre grounds.
