Passed through generations of the Adams family members, Wavering Place is a historic bed and breakfast wedding venue located southeast of Columbia, South Carolina. This tucked away retreat boasts impressive woodland scenery and building design that echoes the property’s 1768 beginnings. Deeply entrenched in America’s history, Wavering Place is just as committed to honoring and respecting the estate’s past as they are about facilitating new beginnings. Proceeds from private event bookings are allocated to Wavering Place’s efforts to safeguard, maintain, and attend to its historical roots. Here, couples can build the wedding of their dreams alongside the inn’s inviting staff and idyllic South Carolina countryside.
Facilities and Capacity
Though embraced by forests, a notable pride-and-joy hallmark of Wavering Place is its carefully protected gardens. The Green Tree House is a semi-covered event space that showcases these picture-perfect points of interest spread across the property. Able to comfortably accommodate up to 170 distinguished guests, the Tree House is equipped with a kitchen, bar, restroom facilities, and a private "Groom's" room. Inside, guests can celebrate and mingle in its 2,000 -square-foot common area and lounge by one of its two fireplaces. Tent siding is available if couples would like to opt for the pavilion to be fully covered or and additional tent can be located adjacent to the pavilion. Beyond this space, the grounds offer a number of peaceful places for special wedding events. The Kitchen House allows the bridal party to prepare for the big day in its dressing suite, or for the newlyweds to relax afterward in its overnight guest accommodation.
The staff at Wavering Place invites couples planning their ceremony, reception, or elopement, as well as those organizing engagement parties, wedding showers, or rehearsal dinners. With their signature geniality, the on-site hospitality professionals are dedicated to transforming wedding visions into realities. They strive to provide personalized support and to live up to every couple’s carefully considered expectations. Those booking their special day at Wavering Place may organize outside vendors endorsed by the venue and can avail of supplied security and parking services.
Aside from acting as a convenient staging area, the Kitchen House also sets the stage for romantic getaways or honeymoon hideaways. With cozy interiors and advanced amenities, guests can relax and rejuvenate, with breakfast for two awaiting them each morning.

Words cannot explain how amazing!
There aren't enough words to describe how professional and hospitable Wavering Place is. They made all of our dreams come true not only for our wedding day, but everything leading up to and after has been nothing short of amazing. Lisa is so easy and amazing to work with and so, so sweet. She woke up and made us a honeymoon breakfast the next morning after staying in the cutest kitchen house on the plantation grounds. I can't say enough good things about WP!Sent on 06/19/2019

Perfect Venue and Superb Service!
Wavering Place and owners Lisa and Weston Adams offered the most amazing venue and experience for our wedding! The grounds, kitchen house, groom's suite, and pavilion are immaculately kept. Whether it was COVID, weather, or life's unexpected obstacles, Lisa approached each situation with professionalism, positivity, and encouragement! Her years of event experience at Wavering Place coupled with her cultivated relationships with local caterers, rentals, florists, sound technicians, band agents, and wedding planners made our experience easier to navigate and much less stressful - which allowed us to truly enjoy the entire weekend of festivities! There isn't one aspect of our magical day and evening that we would change! Kudos to this team of great people for providing the perfect venue for your most important day! We would highly recommend Wavering Place as the perfect place for your outdoor wedding or venue!!Sent on 12/14/2020
