The lawns and Victorian Carriage house at Woodburn Plantation allows the bride to plan the outdoor wedding of her dreams without "Big City" prices. Woodburn Historic House, c.1830, is a majestic 4-story plantation house on a 10-acre site that is operated by the Pendleton Historic Foundation as a house museum. Conviently located just off US76 in historic Pendleton, the grounds of Woodburn provide a beautiful outdoor setting for wedding ceremonies and receptions of all sizes in an authentic historical setting. The house museum will be open during the reception for guests to tour through the main floor.

The most popular site for wedding ceremonies at Woodburn is in front of the Victorian Carriage house with a brick patio and pathway leading to it for the bridal party. Many brides have also select the front steps of the plantation house or in the open lawn at the rear of the main house. The choise is yours!

The Foundation bases its grounds rental rates on the number of guests anticipated and the length of time needed. Most popular is the 8-hour package on the day of the event for up to 150 guests. There is a slight premium for each extra 100 guests up to a maximum of 400 guests. The Foundation offers an hourly rate with a 3-hr minium and a 5-hr maximum for weddings of less than 50 people.

Woodburn Plantation was the perfect location for my southern wedding! Jackie was easy to work with and met me every time I asked! (which was many times) I was able to take my bridal shots there as well for no extra charge. My guests were wowed by the beauty of the home. The price was very affordable compared to other venues in the area. They were true professionals through and through. I even received my deposit back before I was even home from the honeymoon. The Woodburn made my wedding dreams come true!

I absolutly love this place. I searched and searched for the perfect place for my wedding and when I saw the carriage house, I was hooked. I had my wedding at Woodburn last Saturday and it is such a beautiful venue. All of my guests loved it and I know my pictures are going to be amazing. There are some restrictions due to the age of the property and the fact it is a museum but this is a wonderful place to have a wedding.

Woodburn Historic House was the perfect location for our wedding and reception. The grounds are absolutely beautiful (especially in the spring) and provide plenty of space - we had around 250 guests and had plenty of room on the lawn. Our guests commented on how beautiful the house was and how it was the perfect setting for a wedding. The space below the house was large enough to hold our entire wedding party (as well as a few family members and friends) as we waited for the wedding to begin. A Pendleton Historic Foundation volunteer was there to oversee the wedding and reception and she was very polite and did not interfere with our event. It was nice to have her there to answer any questions we had about the house and where people could or could not go (the house is technically a museum, so there are some areas and things you can't touch!). We would recommend Woodburn Historic House to anyone looking for a gorgeous place for an outdoor wedding!

Woodburn was the only venue I visited, and I loved it! I would definitely recommend Woodburn to other brides. The setting is perfect for an outdoor wedding - it offers several different ceremony sites, and there are endless background possibilites for photos. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, so a lot of decorations are not necessary, which can save on the cost of flowers. This is an historic venue, so there are some rules. The facilities are very good, however, some creativity is needed - there is a separate bathroom from the house (you may have to hide behind sheets if no one is to see you before the ceremony!), there is electricity but no A/C (bring fans!), and there is a small kitchen (several caterers have made it possible). The main disadvantage is that Woodburn must close by 11:00 (something to plan for when having late evening wedding). The people were very nice to work with during the wedding planning. My only complaint is that the Woodburn volunteers were not as professional on the day of the wedding. Woodurn is very popular, so be sure to book your day early!

This is a very beautiful venue, I could not image my wedding anywhere else. They offer a very good value compared to other venues in the area plus all of the money is used to maintain this beautiful historic home. They are very protective of the grounds and of course the house so you have to be aware of the rules and make sure all your guest are also aware of them to make sure the day goes smooth. The volunteers are all very nice and for the most part professional, my only complaint about this venue is that a couple of the volunteers while watching our ceremony stood in front of one of the video camera that had been placed on the porch on the back side of the house. I hope this helpful I would recommend this venue to anyone willing to brave an outdoor wedding.

What a pretty venue! We were so please with how things turned out.

I scored low on value because it's a tad overpriced considering that you have limited hours and they don't provide any tables/chairs. The lack of flexibility is known before you sign the contract. It's a historic home so there are just things you can't do. I don't love that they aren't flexible about the number of hours or how late you can be there. Professionalism was great until the day of the wedding. I had told them that it was a formal wedding and to please have staff wear black accordingly. They were in bright clothing. They were also not considerate of photos being taken with the house in the background. They are in a LOT of pictures which is very frustrating. They stood on the back porch during the ceremony which I found inappropriate since the wedding part comes out from under the back porch. They were in plain sight.

They (mainly Jackie) were great about responding to emails! Every question was answered timely.

A wonderful venue!
