Waverly Estate is a beautiful venue that sits on eight acres of land in the town of Lunenburg, Virginia. The circa 1838, pre-Civil War, Antebellum home and church are directly next to a 200 acre cattle farm and provide a whimsical, vintage vibe. The exquisite hackberry tree that sits on the property is 175 years old and the grounds of Waverly Estate are now completely filled with towering magnolia trees, crepe myrtles, and weeping willows. This natural scenery provides a magical background for any wedding event.

My husband and I got married at the Waverly Estate in June. I don’t even know where to begin to thank Sarah, Colin, and the rest of their amazing staff. My family and I had a completely worry-free weekend, and everything was perfect from beginning to end because of Sarah. All of the services offered by the venue are wonderful, everyone is so professional/easy to work with, and Sarah knows how to make you feel special. Sarah is truly amazing - from making me feel comfortable and even giving me a little pep talk before heading down the aisle - she is meant for this job. If you are looking for the perfect venue to marry the love of your life, this is it! ❤️Sent on 07/16/2019

Wedding of My Dreams!
Waverly Estate had the setting and staff to pull off the wedding of my dreams! Sarah and her team were absolutely wonderful to work with from the moment we booked until we left for our honeymoon. They helped with planning, were always just a text or email away, and helped with setup on the day of the wedding so I could sit back and enjoy getting ready with my girls. Having the entire weekend there was wonderful too! It made our wedding so stress free to have Friday to set up some, the rehearsal dinner in the beautiful historic church on site, then to simply walk next door and enjoy the night in the gorgeous house with my best girls! It was also wonderful knowing that if it rained, I had a backup ceremony location that was beautiful- the historic church! I would recommend this venue to anyone and I am SO GLAD I had the opportunity to be a Waverly bride!!!Sent on 01/03/2019

Sarah and Collin are absolute superstars and their venue is incredible! We had our wedding at Waverly Estate on October 13, right after Hurricane Michael. The hurricane caused a lot of damage in the area, and it completely took down the tent at the venue. Sarah and Collin were able to secure a new tent for our wedding Saturday night, and they had the venue looking spotless by the time I had gotten there on Friday afternoon. These two will work tirelessly to make sure your day goes smoothly, and you can tell that they really put a lot of time and effort into making their clients happy. I HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone who is looking. Thanks again guys!Sent on 11/07/2018
