Buy Tickets

The fabulous Opening Night Party kicks off the second annual Illumination Charleston weekend. Join incredible event co-chairs, Jaimie Dewberry and Alex Malloy, in another over-the-top evening. Enjoy creative cocktails and light bites at the historic and stunning Aiken-Rhett House and be the first to see the site-specific designer vignettes inspired by the preserved-as-found 1820s historic house.

Design vignettes from designers situated throughout the house will set the tone for the weekend as we showcase contemporary design and style while honoring Charleston’s unparalleled historic spaces. You will enjoy the artistry of these Vignette Designers: Cortney Bishop, McLaurin Parker, Blake Sams, Kathryn Maresca Faull of Maresca Textiles, Stephanie Summerson Hall of Estelle Colored Glass, Dani Motley of Salt & Stem, and Chris Wyrick.
