Commemorate one of the most meaningful days of your life.


Enjoy our beautiful venues by mixing and matching our spaces to fit your unique vision.

Celebrate the start of your unforgettable weekend with an onsite rehearsal dinner in the Historic Senior Hall Recital Hall. Prepare for your big moment with stunning photographs of you and bridal party getting ready in our elegant Historic Senior Hall Parlors. Exchange your vows in the beautiful Firestone Baars Chapel. Continue your celebration just steps away in the magnificent Kimball Ballroom.

When you choose the all-inclusive venue package, your guests won’t have to drive from venue to venue. In fact, transportation is a non-issue your entire weekend, as Stephens College is located just steps from downtown Columbia’s shopping, dining and nightlife.

Kimball Ballroom’s versatile 6,000 square-foot floor plan can accommodate up to 300 guests seated at banquet tables, or up to 350 guests in our large party layout. Built in 1938 and restored in 2006, the one-of-a-kind Kimball Ballroom of Lela Raney Wood Hall is the perfect setting for a grand celebration.
