5 Favorite Outdoor Wedding Venues in Columbia, SC

January 19, 2016

This recent freezing cold weather has me daydreaming about all of this year’s upcoming outdoor weddings and receptions, so I decided to blog about it! We are blessed here in South Carolina to have about 9 months of warm (okay, sometimes crazy hot) weather, perfect for celebrating outdoors. So here, in no particular order, are my favorite outdoor wedding venues in Columbia, SC.

The Millstone at Adams Pond

When thinking of outdoor wedding venues in Columbia, SC, my mind immediately pictures the Millstone at Adam’s Pond. It also boasts a beautiful and unique indoor area for cooling off and enjoying your reception. This venue is secluded, and is one of the only Midlands wedding venues that features Spanish Moss, which is one of my favorite things about this location!

River Road and Jasmine House

The Lace House and Gardens

Wavering Place Plantation

Wavering Place Plantation is as close to Tara as you can get, without watching Gone With the Wind. Spanish Moss, antebellum architecture, beautiful Magnolias, and tons of outdoor space make this one of my favorite outdoor wedding venues in Columbia, SC.

Stone River
