FAQs

Can you send me a list of your packages?

One of the things we pride ourselves on is being a venue that customizes every aspect of your event. From the style and design to the food you serve your guests, each proposal that we create is specific to the client. We’re committed to designing premier events, not being a “cookie cutter” venue. We do offer some packages that represent our most popular items for smaller events in smaller budgets, including Holiday Events and Teatime Experiences. Even with our packages, no two events are the same. Our desire is to produce work that not only makes you swoon, but also represents our reputation for exceptional event experiences! 

Do you require a minimum spend to reserve a date?

Yes, high season Fridays require a minimum spend of $36,600 and Saturdays $61,000 and up. 3% Beaufort County hospitality tax will be added to food & beverage costs. 7% sales tax will be added to the total. High season weekdays have a minimum spend of $24,400. Mid and low season dates (January-March, June-September, and December) have lower minimums. The exception to these minimums are our Holiday Events and Teatime Packages, which have booking limitations and restrictions.

Do you allow outside vendors?

We welcome our clients to bring the photographer/videographer and band/DJ of their choice, but we do require the use of the services that we offer:

  • Catering (food and beverages)
  • Florals
  • Planning
  • Design

We do not rent any part of Hewitt Oaks as a location-only venue.
