About The Grand Victorian Wedding Venue
The Grande Victorian is a spectacular estate dating back over 100 years to 1884. Covering over 6 acres of beautifully maintained property, the property has several outdoor spaces and a glamorous ballroom, perfect for hosting a sophisticated wedding.
In its prime, The Grande Victorian was family-owned and known for hosting large events with guests from far and wide. Today, its legacy of hospitality continues, and loving restorations have ensured it is more beautiful than ever.
Details of the Grounds
One of the best parts of hosting your wedding at The Grande Victorian is definitely the Bridal and Groom’s Suites! The Bridal Suite is one of the largest in the Carolinas. It has plenty of seating and lit mirrors for everyone in the bridal party. It’s an airy room flooded with bright natural light, making it every photographer’s dream when it comes to traditional “getting ready” photos! The Groom’s Suite has plenty to keep your partner’s party entertained, including poker, foosball tables, and, of course, a television.
For your ceremony, the Outdoor Pavilion is an ample covered space to protect you, your partner, and your guests from any unforeseen or rainy weather. It’s a bright, comfortable area with ceiling fans, a raised stage with brick steps, and a natural stone backdrop for your vow exchange.
Following your “I do’s,” your guests can enjoy socializing with a cocktail on the paved outdoor cocktail hour patio. You can also transform this space into an outdoor dance floor for later in the evening, should you desire!
Finally, gather with your guests in The Grande Victorian’s 5,000-square-foot ballroom for your reception. The room features dramatic black and white tile floors, elegant chandeliers, and lots of bright, natural light. The walls are white and neutral, so you can transform the space into your unique wedding with whatever colors or décor you choose! This recently renovated space is elegant and timeless, perfect for a wedding that aspires to be the same.
