William Aiken House
One of Charleston’s most sought-after wedding venues, the historic 1807 William Aiken House wraps couples and guests in suave ballrooms, lush artful gardens, old world piazzas and sunlit courtyards. The iconic pastel yellow mansion rests in the heart of downtown's bourgeoning Upper King Street Design District in close proximity to celebrated hotels and cultural offerings.
Pre-wedding welcome parties sing in the formal dining rooms and parlors surrounded by remarkable antiques and artwork. Once-in-a-lifetime wedding ceremonies flourish in the spacious private courtyards centered around the property’s impressive two-century-old magnolia tree. Sweeping ballrooms host unforgettable receptions and lively cocktail hours unfold on expansive outdoor piazzas. Breathtaking photography backdrops abound in lush manicured gardens, an elegant reflection pool and stylish pergola.
Enjoy exclusive access to the house and grounds along with custom menu selections by the revered Patrick Properties culinary team. The executive chef works closely with couples to create a menu tailored to personal tastes while the talented in-house pastry chef designs exquisite wedding cakes and delicious confections.
