About

The M Garden is located right outside the heart of downtown Columbia, South Carolina. This is the perfect venue for wedding ceremonies, receptions, rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, or wedding showers. Whether it's a ceremony under the wood pergola, cocktail hour on the terrace or a seated dinner in the reception hall, The M Garden offers a unique backdrop to host all of life's many celebrations!

Facilities and Capacity

The M Garden offers a little of everything for your celebrations! Start your big day in the bridal suite with all your best friends and family, and finish with a grand sparkling exit after an evening of memories. Groomsmen can kick back and relax in the groom's room while watching their favorite sporting event or listening to their favorite tunes!

The venue boasts many potential ceremony locations across several acres of outdoor space. From the wooden pergola to the stone bridge, you can make your ceremony as unique as you would like. As the newlyweds stroll the outdoor area taking photos, guests can enjoy a cocktail hour on the back terrace steps away from the ceremony location.

The reception hall has hardwood floors and neutral white walls elegantly draped with crushed taffeta. Equipped with three chandeliers, a sound system, wireless microphones, and two projectors, this room can take on whatever look you desire. The grounds offer two ponds, a water wheel, a waterfall, outdoor furniture, and two firepits perfect for chilly evenings outdoors.

Services Offered

Staff at The M Garden are more than happy to point couples in the right direction. They can provide setup and cleanup services, event rentals, including altars, centerpieces, furniture, and linens, and many other services.

Wedding Venue

We highly recommend the M Garden if you're looking for a wedding venue. Michelle and her staff were kind, professional, and great to work with! The venue was spotless and they worked with us to have the tables and chairs out so that everything was ready to set up when my wedding coordinator arrived. Michelle quickly responded to all of my questions throughout the entirety of my engagement and was there to support me and my other vendors with anything I needed leading up to the day of. The venue is beautiful and was a perfect fit for what we were looking for! I could not recommend Michelle and the M Garden enough!!

M Garden is a local hidden sanctuary that transports you with breathtaking outdoor views and a large indoor open layout design. The space has everything you need to ensure that your event is memorable and your photos are perfection. The venue is equipped with everything you will need to host a wedding, corporate event or to just reserve for a special group gathering. Michelle and her staff are professional, gracious and easy to work with. My organization is excited to work with M Garden in the future for any of our event needs.

Writing this before the event because we are so pleased with all communication, flexibility, pricing and other arrangements. Michelle and Raymond are extremely helpful. We will use M Garden for wedding ceremony and photos and then go to M Grille fir reception and dinner.
