Couldn’t recommend this vendor enough!!

We had the most amazing experience at Wavering Place. The venue is absolutely stunning. The owners are very accommodating and knowledgeable about the history of the space. They allowed us to come a week before our wedding and bury a bottle of bourbon which I really appreciated. The venue has spaces for getting ready that are beautiful and functional. I’m obsessed with the trees on the property and the lighting during sunset. My wedding pictures turned out beautiful because of the lighting coming through the trees. The venue has so many different spaces that allowed for different spaces for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The amount of space allowed our guests to spread out but still be present. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful place and better vendors to work with. You have such a breath taking entrance when you walk down the stairs to your ceremony under the trees. Every mentioned that moment throughout the wedding. I hope to rent out the space for an anniversary in the future and stay the night.

Excellent and beautiful

We held a wedding for 200 people at the end of April 2022. The venue was beautiful with an area for the ceremony, cocktail hour, buffet dinner, and large tent with the dance floor and band.. the grounds were beautiful and well manicured. Can’t be happier with our experience and choice.
