Forbes says,

"At the Wentworth Mansion in Charleston, South Carolina, the look is a little more subdued—but no less opulent. Situated in the historic district, the mansion, built in 1886, provides couples with picture-perfect settings that include rooms with Tiffany stained glass windows and carved marble fireplaces. Rolling lawns and the elegance of the mansion’s architecture–think cornices and dormers a-go-go–ensure an easy-going, but genuinely elegant, aesthetic.

In addition, couples who marry at the Wentworth Mansion have access to a variety of places for pictures, ceremonies, and celebrations. Among these are a rooftop cupola with dazzling Charleston views and a Mansion Suite with two floor-to-ceiling fireplaces. Beyond the doors of the Wentworth Mansion itself, of course, in Charleston. And as any bride-to-be knows, this city is one of America’s top wedding destinations. For guests of the happy couple, this can mean instant access to historic tours, plenty of antique shopping, outstanding restaurants, and galleries, too.
