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

When we saw this location, we immediately fell in love! Everyone at Wavering Place was incredibly amazing to work with, and the setting is just hard to beat! Due to a family emergency, they worked with us to move up our wedding date, and were so accommodating! We had the fall wedding of our dreams - the gardens are immaculate, the charm is undeniable. It's just the perfect location for a wedding, and gave us that bohemian rustic charm we were looking for. We will forever be thankful for Lisa and her team!Sent on 12/16/2019

Absolutely Beautiful Venue!
This venue has always been my dream wedding venue and it lived up to every expectation! I loved feeling like we had our own hidden gem that close to Columbia! From getting ready in the bridal cottage to dancing the night away in the green house, it was perfect! We highly recommend Wavering Place Plantation!Sent on 12/18/2019
