Maple Lawn's pièce de résistance is the expansive Magnolia Terrace, an absolute jewel of a garden area just east of the blue-and-white mansion. As you enter through an ornate iron gate, the first thing that greets you is a profusion of colorful, blooming hedges. Just ahead is a raised, canopied terrace, and stretching out beyond that is an incredibly lush lawn surrounded on three sides by mature magnolia and camellia trees. Running straight through the center of the grass is a wide brick promenade adorned with two multitiered fountains topped dramatically with Greek goddesses.

What a spectacular setting this makes for your ceremony, as friends and family seated on the lawn watch you walk down that center aisle to meet your partner beneath a neoclassical arch. After vows are exchanged, everyone is invited to toast your new life with a glass of bubbly on the terrace.
