Waverly Estate is a beautiful venue that sits on eight acres of land in the town of Lunenburg, Virginia. The circa 1838 home, church, and stunning new event building with a greenhouse feel are directly next to a 200-acre cattle farm and provide a whimsical, vintage, and garden vibe. The 200-year-old hackberry tree that sits on the property is one of the favorite ceremony spots. 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.

    Dreams come true at this venue!

    Sarah at waverly estate is an absolute wizard. We chose an all inclusive package where we had access to the grounds from Friday-Sunday. Sarah could not have been more helpful on my big day. Any issue that might have happened i was unaware of, leaving me only to focus on marrying my best friend! Everything was absolutely flawless and i will recommend this place to any couple planning a wedding!

    Waverly Estate's reply:

    Aww, thank you so much, Beth! We absolutely loved being a part of you and Lucas' big day! You two and your wedding parties were so sweet and such a good time and I ave to say, you pulled off pops of hot pink better than I have ever obsessed and cant wait to share more pics! :)

    Are you looking for the PERFECT place to have a wedding?!

    The type of wedding that you dream about when your a little girl? WELL LOOK NO FURTHER. YOU FOUND IT!!!! Waverly Estate gave me that opportunity. They not only were able to give me the perfect wedding, but Sarah and Collin made me feel apart of the Waverly family in so many ways. I've never been the type to write reviews but Waverly Estate deserves 10 stars. Sarah and Collin (the owners of Waverly Estate) made me feel like a TRUE bride.I talk to a lot of brides whom have been to other venues and I always here about how stressful their day was. Well I can truly say from the bottom of my heart I felt NO stress the day of my wedding or throughout the planning processes. That was all because of Sarah! I could never give enough thanks to Sarah for helping me plan our big day, supporting us, and making our dreams come true! My husband and I will FOREVER cherish & love Waverly Estate in our heart. We have even talked about one day, a long time down the road, if we ever decided to renew our vows it WILL be at Waverly. We not only had the perfect wedding but we made friends for a life time. I cannot say this enough, if you are looking for the perfect wedding, the best memories, and did I mention photos. Then you have found it!
