Columbia's Premiere Venues for Weddings and Events

The event venues of Senate's End are nestled between a wooded ravine and the Congaree river. Overlooking the historic Gervais Street Bridge in the Vista, the property is a hidden gem in the heart of downtown Columbia SC. This stunning backdrop for weddings offers the character of a natural environment with a variety of venue options, ample parking, nearby hotels and a vibrant downtown.

Once the home of Sterling Garden Center, Senate's End is a collection of four distinctive buildings: The Hall, The Manor House, 300 Senate and The Market Tea Room. Each building has an outdoor deck or patio for an indoor/outdoor experience when weather permits. Adjacent to the buildings are two outdoor Wedding Gardens. We offer a picture perfect setting for your special event. Whether you are exchanging your vows in a lush garden or dancing the night away in an elegant banquet hall, you are sure to have a fabulous event at Senate's End!
