Weddings at Marlsgate Plantation are created one-at-a-time, for the special couples each year who will then have a lifetime to say they “married at Marlsgate.” Timeless and elegant, our weddings are a boutique experience: our talented staff touches every detail, from hands-on personal planning, to the design and creation of the Bride’s bouquet and wedding florals, to our chef-driven custom catering, to our house-made celebration Wedding Cakes.
We own the elements needed to create your ceremony, your celebration, and your memories: white wedding chairs for the estate lawn; gold Chivari chairs with padded ivory cushions for the Reception Tent and Formal Gardens; a state-of-the-art sound system; classic ivory bone china with a gold rim; an unmatched collection of antique silver trays, silver trophies, silver serving pieces and silver candelabra. Our private collections make each event at Marlsgate Plantation feel like the very personal experience it is meant to be.
Our weddings reflect the traditional southern way of living, with grace, charm, and time-tested etiquette. We are mindful of budgets, and respectful of resources. Marlsgate itself is a grand estate. We do not promote the extravagant over-use of flowers, or the air of attending a performance; we are committed to a meaningful ceremony joining two hearts in marriage, and a true celebration surrounded by loved ones. Our brides and their families will happily tell you that our weddings are full of peace, professionalism, and JOY.
A wedding ceremony for 100 guests, with full access to the estate, including the Formal Gardens, the all-glass Conservatory, the 1888 Carriage House bridal suite, the main house, and the Party Tent begins with a fee of $5,000. Receptions are created individually with our couples according to their wishes and their budgets.
We are equipped for a guest list of any size, and the largest wedding celebration at Marlsgate to-date welcomed 900 guests.
We reserve 20 weddings each year.
Call to make an appointment to walk the property and meet with us…. This is our personal residence, and it gives us great pleasure to share it with couples who cannot imagine beginning their lives together anywhere but Marlsgate Plantation.
