The O'Donnell House is a beautiful architectural display located in the revitalized downtown district of Sumter, SC. The home was completely renovated in 2009 by the current owners. The renovation included a complete face-lift of the historic part of the house - refinished plaster walls, hardwood floors, ceilings, etc. It also included an overhaul of the Ballroom to include the addition of nine Swarovski crystal chandeliers, granite and Brazilian cherry flooring, several windows, and a wide piazza to the West side of the house. Professional landscaping also adds to the charm and allows your guests to experience a "garden" atmosphere during your ceremony or reception.

When I originally toured this house, I fell in love. It’s beautiful. The deal just got better and better when I began really working with Sarah. She is extremely helpful and accommodating. The staff is great and the food is to die for. We even had several guests commenting on how great they were and how beautiful the venue is.Sent on 10/02/2019

The O'Donnell House was perfect - we planned our wedding from out of town and Sarah was phenomenal ! Friendly and professional. And the food is to die for! it is 2 months after the wedding and guests are still complimenting me on how good everything tasted. We had the wedding outside in the garden and then the reception inside - the venue is beautiful! We had a relatively small event of approximately 70 people - we easily could have had more guests without feeling crowded but at the same time we did not feel lost with such a small number. Being able to have different groups in different parts of the downstairs instead of stuck in the ballroom the entire time was great. the staff was very diligent - no one is just standing around. Sarah is pleasant and easy going creating a drama-free, comfortable atmosphere for all from the time you being planning to the completion of the event. Many thanks to Sarah, Wanda and the staff for helping our day be perfect!Sent on 12/15/2017

We were in love from day one and we still are! We are not from Sumter and we had all of our family come in from out of state for our wedding- so we needed an impressive venue and, boy, did they deliver! The house is incredible with lots of history and the decor of the rooms is so beautifully well-done and full of character that you hardly need to add your own.Sent on 07/21/2017
We had the best experience with Sarah. She is sharp, very detail-oriented, and accommodating to our unique needs and requests. We had our ceremony (outside on the steps) and our reception at the O'Donnell House and everything was perfect.
I am certain that my wedding planning experience was smoother and easier than most because I had Sarah, the O'Donnell House contact and our day-of coordinator, meeting with me and helping me sort out the big and little details along the way. Any and every question or concern we had was taken care of speedily and professionally. She is quick to respond to email, texts, phone calls, you name it. She is also very sweet and personable, and she always does her best to help you resolve any "bumps in the road" when it comes to planning out all the details of your big day!
All of my family and friend raved about the food, the exquisite service of the staff and bar tender, and the house in general- it is absolutely gorgeous. A real gem of Sumter. Sarah's dad owns a beautiful old car that I arrived in for the ceremony and we exited in. Not only is it great for pictures, it is very reasonably priced to rent and be driven around in!
We were on a budget and Sarah worked with us to stay within our budget and still have the wedding of our dreams. From start to finish, the ceremony and the reception were both seamless, elegant, and all of the guests were pleased. A big thanks to Sarah and her parents for a wonderful venue and an unforgettable day!!
