Evergreen Plantation isn’t just a wedding venue; it’s a captivating Southern tapestry woven with history, elegance, and breathtaking natural beauty. The very name evokes a sense of timeless grace, a promise whispered by the gentle breeze rustling through the majestic oak and magnolia trees that line the entrance.

As you approach the venue, a sense of anticipation builds. The long driveway winds through meticulously landscaped grounds, offering a serene prelude to the magic that awaits. Towering oaks, draped in Spanish moss, stand sentinel, their branches reaching out as if in welcome. Lush magnolia trees, adorned with fragrant blooms, paint the scene with a touch of Southern charm.

The Heart of Southern Elegance:

And then, you see it – the breathtaking white home, a beacon of Southern hospitality. Its elegant architecture, steeped in history, promises a celebration steeped in timeless romance. Step inside, and the feeling of Southern charm intensifies. The warm glow of natural light bathes the interior, highlighting the exquisite details that whisper of a bygone era.

A Grand Entrance: As the grand doors open, a sense of awe washes over you. The centerpiece of the entryway is a remarkable sight – a 150-year-old Walnut Tree, reborn in its second life. Its polished surface and intricate patterns serve as a stunning focal point, welcoming guests into the heart of The Lodge.

A Ballroom Fit for Royalty:

This majestic entryway leads seamlessly into the grand banquet room, a space designed to make your wedding reception an unforgettable celebration. Imagine swirling across a spacious dance floor, bathed in the warm glow of the Scottish Chandelier, while a towering stone fireplace adds a touch of rustic elegance. Whether you envision a lively band leading a joyous waltz or a more intimate gathering, The Lodge caters to every desire.

The Perfect Stage for Your Love Story:

A state-of-the-art sound system and a dedicated stage ensure every note of your chosen music fills the room, creating the perfect ambiance for your first dance as a married couple. As your guests witness your joy, they can admire the celebration from a charming balcony overlooking the dance floor.

A Culinary Dream Realized:

No wedding celebration is complete without a delicious feast. The Lodge boasts a chef’s dream commercial kitchen, a haven for culinary creativity. Here, talented caterers can work their magic, crafting a menu that reflects your unique taste and complements the elegance of the setting.

Beyond the Ballroom:

While The Lodge is undoubtedly the centerpiece of Evergreen Plantation, the venue offers so much more. Explore the sprawling grounds, perfect for capturing stunning wedding photos amidst the picturesque scenery. Imagine exchanging vows under the shade of a centuries-old oak, or stealing a quiet moment for a romantic stroll through the manicured gardens.
