The drive into Kenmure welcomes you to take in the property’s natural splendor. The rolling hills, the surrounding mountains, the antebellum mansion, and the vibrant green fairways of our golf course are all invitations to contemplate the possibilities of life and new beginnings.
This intimate proximity to nature defines our hosted wedding events. Each venue space is easily accessible to the outdoors and offers breathtaking views through numerous large windows and glass doors. We believe that it’s the perfect canvas for memorable moments.
A Worry-Free Wedding Venue
Weddings are a time for families and friends to gather and reconnect. At Kenmure, your guests can make the most of the time they have together, without spending the time to travel to multiple locations and venues.
You could host a rehearsal dinner or welcome party on the patio, hold your ceremony by the lake or golf course, move to the Charleston Room for the reception, and cap off your weekend with a farewell brunch in the Sears Room. Major regional airports in Asheville and Greenville, SC, are easily within reach for out-of-town visitors, and our selection of on-site rental cottages and condos takes the worry out of finding accommodations for your guests.
Event Space Options
The neutral palette of our event spaces gives you the freedom to put a personal touch on the decor and ambiance of each venue. Whether you opt for a more casual or formal affair, our event planners can help you create a wedding event that is distinctly your own.
The following descriptions of our event-space options are just a taste of what Kenmure has to offer your wedding party. Please contact our event planners to schedule a tour and learn more about our offerings.
THE ANTEBELLUM CLUBHOUSE
With windows framing the vistas of the lake and surrounding mountains, our clubhouse is perfect for standing cocktail receptions for up to 350 guests. We can also make the space cozier for smaller events.
THE CHARLESTON GRAND BALLROOM
The Charleston Grand Ballroom is a beautiful backdrop for any celebration. The space seats up to 260 people and features a large cupola full of windows above the dance floor.
THE SEARS ROOM
Recently remodeled and part of the original mansion, the Sears Room is perfect for a small ceremony, rehearsal dinner, or bridal luncheon. With a distinctive, cozy decor reminiscent of Charleston, SC, accented with fireplaces and doors opening to the Veranda, this space will add elegance and Southern charm to your wedding event.
An idyllic setting for larger gatherings, the lakeside area of the property is our most popular ceremony venue. It can accommodate any style preference, whether you opt for a rustic event garnished with hay-bale seating or a more elegant affair with crystal chandeliers. This area is easily accessible to the parking lot, restrooms, and electrical hookups. A tent can also be put up in case of inclement weather.
Wedding ceremonies on our Veranda are generally more casual. With a beautiful mountain backdrop and a covered area to keep the elements at bay, this space can seat up to 80 guests who have the option of standing or visiting the nearby bar before the ceremony. This site also features easy access to parking, reception areas, bathrooms, and electrical hookups.
A casual or elegant service can be held in an area adjacent to our golf course. With a view of our clubhouse and a nearby creek and bridges, this setting is ideal for more sports-minded free spirits!
