Whether you are planning a large wedding or an intimate elopement, the Governor Thomas Bennett House is a beautiful, historic venue that encompasses all the charm historic Charleston has to offer. Our Crescent Garden is the perfect setting for your outdoor wedding ceremony around the pineapple fountain, under the shade of a 200 year old oak. Following the ceremony, guests are invited into the House for cocktail hour. The reception is held outdoors on the Side Lawn adjacent to the Crescent Garden. The bridal party and guests may enjoy full use of the home and gardens the day of the wedding. A Bridal Suite on the second floor and a Groom’s “Man Cave” on the ground floor provide the perfect space to prepare for your special day.
