Greenville, South Carolina (WSPA) – A popular event space in downtown Greenville, South Carolina, is in the midst of a legal battle.
When Sh’lisa Jackson booked Mary’s Cottage in May, she was convinced she found the perfect place for her daughter’s wedding.
“My daughter and I contacted the event planner to find a way to secure a place, and we did that,” Jackson said.
Less than a month later, she was eating out when disturbing news arrived from the server.
“I talked to my daughter about her big day, and he let me know that you need to check it now and you dropped the bomb,” Jackson said. ..
Since then, she has been unable to contact the owner or operator.
“We haven’t received a phone call or any email yet,” Jackson said.
Cottage Hospitality LLC is subleasing cottages from Carolina Foothills Garden Club. The company is currently suing the garden club and the city that ultimately owns the property.
“The proceedings caused structural damage, plumbing problems, and black mold,” Jackson said.
Cottage Hospitality claims that both the city and the Garden Club were aware of the issue in 2019 and did nothing until late June, when the sublease ended. Leave people like Jackson without a venue.
“It was a nightmare trying to rebuild this entire wedding,” she said.
At this point, she says she just wants to return her deposit.
“We went ahead and found another accommodation by the grace of God, but yes, we want to get the money back.”
The city declined to comment due to an ongoing proceeding, and 7NEWS received a response from the Garden Club.
