Sweeping ballrooms, lush private grounds, and open-air piazzas make this historic 1807 mansion one of Charleston’s most sought-after venues for weddings and once-in-a-lifetime occasions.

A seamless blend of 19th-century allure and modern sophistication, the William Aiken House welcomes guests into a peaceful retreat just inside its gates on Upper King Street. Formal dining rooms and parlors showcase a collection of museum-caliber artwork and antiques, while a two-century-old magnolia tree is the centerpiece of sunlit courtyards and manicured lawns, an elegant pergola, and a Gothic-style Carriage House.
