Featured Venue: Legare Waring House

Updated: Apr 12, 2022

One thing to know about Charleston is that it's filled with picture perfect wedding locations. Say “I do” on the breathtaking grounds of the historical Legare Waring House. Located in the heart of Charles Towne Landing, among the moss-laden avenue of oaks, crystal lagoons, and gardens; the Legare Waring House is the epitome of Southern charm.

The Legare Waring House was the first permanent European settlement in the Carolinas. Although the exact date of construction is unknown, it is estimated that it was built around 1840 but wasn’t transformed into the unforgettable and romantic venue that we know and love until the 1940’s.

The Legare Waring House can hold up to 200 guests indoors and outdoors, offering three undeniably beautiful ceremony locations: The Avenue of Oaks, The Wedding Oak, and The Wedding Garden. You can also host your reception in front of the house on the patio or under the moss draped Avenue of Oaks. Continue reading to see some of our favorite lighting designs we’ve created at the timeless Legare Waring House!


Avenue of the Oaks

Ceremony: Valentina Chandelier

A fun and unique way to light up your ceremony at the Legare Waring House is to hang a “floating” chandelier from the Avenue of Oaks. The Valentina Chandelier adds a warm glow to an evening ceremony and is the perfect elegant touch to this outdoor venue. It's gold frame and crystal detailing makes for a rustic yet romantic look that will be sure to catch the attention of your guests!


Reception: Café Lights with Mini Crystal Chandeliers

Combining our Mini Crystal Chandeliers with our Café Lights transformed the Avenue of Oaks into the most magical wedding reception. We love how elegantly they glow to create an intimate dining experience for guests. This combination perfectly enhanced the natural beauty of the moss-draped oak trees! Although we adore the simplicity of this look, you could consider hanging our Single or Double Tiered Crystal Chandeliers for a more glamorous ambiance.



Reception: Café Lights with Greenery

Our Café Lights are one of the most loved options for wedding lighting, and one of our favorite ways to style them is with greenery. Go above and beyond by adding extra café lights to give the illusion of a starry night and create a fairy tale-like atmosphere that is perfect for a night of dinner, dancing, and celebration!
