Fit for a Governor

Country meets Holy City at the Thomas Bennett House


There are few places in Charleston that combine the splendor of a Southern plantation house with the convenience and charm of a downtown setting. For couples that want both garden and grandeur, few will find a venue with more to offer than the Governor Thomas Bennett House.

Built in 1825, the magnificent antebellum estate boasts stunning architectural details including intricate plasterwork, a free-flying staircase (one of only two in the city) and a large piazza overlooking a formal Charleston garden. Conveniently, it also features spacious, sunlit rooms for both bridal parties to dress before the ceremony as well as private parking for guests. All in all, it makes for a dramatic backdrop for weddings, receptions, bridal luncheons, rehearsal dinners and other events.

“Every wedding is beautiful and reflects the unique style and personality of each couple on their special day,” says Linda McCormick, the event coordinator for the property. “The Governor Thomas Bennett House offers a unique opportunity for the bride and groom to experience the unforgettable moments of their wedding day from start to finish … all while never having to leave the property.”
