Outdoor Wedding Venues of the South

If you’re planning a southern wedding, you’re in luck. This part of the country boasts of a number of breath-taking estate rentals that provide a picture-perfect background for your summer wedding.

South Carolina

The Palmetto State has a number of State Parks where you can have an outdoor wedding amidst stately 100-year old trees and flowering gardens. Hold your ceremony at the end of a trellised lane with the air lightly scented by the nectar of blooming flowers.

The site of the first permanent European settlement, Charles Towne Landing, boasts the historic Legare Waring House, the Charleston residence of the sitting governor. Its sprawling grounds include a crystal lagoon, sculptured landscape, majestic trees and soft, dewy grass. You would be hard-pressed to find a more fitting outdoor event venue in the region.


If you want a glamorous beach wedding with just the right measure of beautiful sunshine, head for the Ocean Key Resort and Spa in Key West. Enjoy four miles of soft white sand, waterfront breakfasts and pre-wedding pampering spa treatments. You can have your wedding reception on their famed Sunset Pier where stunning sunsets are just the beginning.

Fancy a round of golf to calm those pre-wedding jitters? At the Renaissance Vinoy Resort and Golf Club in St. Petersburg, you can squeeze in a round before the groom’s dinner and again just before you head out for your honeymoon after the wedding. If swimming with the dolphins sounds like more of a relaxing pre-wedding treat, Casa Morada should be your destination. It is an hour and half drive from Miami towards the Keys. You can also charter a boat for a fishing or diving expedition before you begin your married life.


Of course, in our own Peach State and in the heart of Atlanta, sits a genuine antebellum southern mansion that embodies the grace and style of a bygone era — The Estate. The Estate is a spacious, meticulously-detailed and well-maintained three-acre luxury estate rental with manicured grounds and absolutely beautiful scenery. One of the most coveted wedding venues in Atlanta, it is the epitome of grace and elegance. Whether you choose to hold your wedding ceremony and reception indoors or outdoors, you will be impressed by The Estate’s stunning details and excellent features. It is indeed the grand dame of event venues in Atlanta.

Planning a once-in-a-lifetime occasion, such as a wedding, can be an intimidating and stressful task. Choosing the right venue and caterers will make wedding planning absolutely delightful.
