Wedding Photography at the Old Wide Awake Plantation


Featuring pristine grounds, a modernized plantation-style house and undeniable Southern charm, the Old Wide Awake Plantation is perfect for a destination wedding away from the busy Charleston streets. Located just south of Charleston in Hollywood, SC, the venue is not a traditional plantation but a reimagined environment based around a renovated general store that used to supply Stono Ferry. Traditional Southern décor mixed with chic modern elements adorns the interior of the house with vibrant patterns and white trim. The exterior features two beautiful wraparound porches perfect for lounging during the reception and sipping sweet tea. A unique element is a portion of the original general store is preserved in an open spot beneath the house. The grounds feature tree-lined roads, expansive fields bursting with color and a sparkling pond. Whether you want a wedding centered around the facade of the house or out in the vibrant grounds, Old Wide Awake Plantation offers something beautiful for all.


With the unique opportunities offered inside and outside of the house as well as across the perfect grounds, our photographers eagerly await a chance to photograph at the plantation. Inside of the home, the eclectic colors and styles yield captivating portraits for brides while they get ready. The general store portion of the exterior adds a turn-of-the-century feel to photos of the groomsmen as they joke around awaiting the wedding festivities. The front cascading steps and expansive grounds offer a gorgeous ceremony, surrounded by the lush green of the lawn with the plantation house backdrop creating a truly Southern atmosphere. The porch provides an endless opportunity for our photographers to capture those lighthearted moments between friends and endearing catchings-up between family. Strolling back down the lanes leading back to the house, our photographers can capture charming moments of the couple holding hands and smiling, heading into their future together. We’re excited to be able to share these moments with you and look forward to seeing you at Old Wide Awake Plantation!
