This Lion’s Gate Manor wedding is one of our favorite South Carolina weddings to date. A fellow wedding colleague passed Leighann and Johann to us as a referral. Often times in the wedding community, we pass around referrals to our friends. It’s great to be a part of a loving community where vendors support and refer to one another.
Lion’s Gate Manor Wedding
I had the pleasure of getting to visit the venue before the wedding date. This doesn’t happen often, and I always love getting to see the venue beforehand. We met with Leighann for her bridal session a few months before the big day. The grounds are nothing less than stunning. It’s located in Spartanburg, South Carolina. But it honestly feels like a hidden villa from somewhere overseas. It’s truly the hidden gem of South Carolina wedding venues.
There is a very large bridal suite that overlooks the upper reception area. Complete with a king-size bed and floor to ceiling mirrors for the morning of getting ready. The area is topped with gorgeous green turf and string lights. There is also a covered area at the bottom of the steps as a rain back up option. It’s truly the perfect outdoor venue. However, their ceremony spot steals the show. Guests sit right in front of a 20-foot waterfall pond. Also, it’s paired with stone benches and lion stone statues around the border. Seriously, it’s unreal. Just scroll down to see for yourself!
Spartanburg Wedding Venues
Although there are so many different options when venue searching in Spartanburg and Greenville, we highly recommend Lion’s Gate Manor. It’s one of our go-to referrals and we are so thankful to be able to celebrate with our couples here. We always look forward to returning!
