Weddings in Charleston

Around the world, Relais & Châteaux establishments are known as dream venues for romantic experiences. In Charleston, the most captivating events take place at Planters Inn & Peninsula Grill, South Carolina’s only Relais & Châteaux establishment.

Charleston is referred to as “a city set in a garden,” and Planters Inn is the only historic hotel with a garden courtyard venue for weddings.

Preeminent landscape designer Sheila Wertimer is renowned for returning historic gardens to their nineteenth-century glory, and the lush terrace she created for Planters Inn is the perfect backdrop for your wedding photography.

Perfectly manicured ornamental boxwoods are framed by historic brick pathways frame, while crepe myrtle and palmetto trees, wrought iron gates, and Charleston Battery benches enliven the venue with distinctively Southern character.

Every evening at dusk, the carriage lanterns are lit by hand—one-by-one—until the Planters Inn Courtyard comes alive. Trees are illuminated, candles glow, and tea lights flicker in a magical twilight tableau.

Regarded as one of the most enchanting places to socialize in the South, the Planters Inn Courtyard’s resplendent sense of arrival and ambiance will set the stage for your unforgettable event.

At Planters Inn, many weddings begin in the Courtyard for either the ceremony of vows or cocktails & canapés before moving into a private dining room for dinner and dancing.


We would be honored to host your special day. Please contact us to discuss available options and schedule a tour.

Congratulations & Cheers!
