From the moment you walk through their doors you are surrounded by light and warmth! There is no better way to describe it other than this place is magical! It has a fabulous location, natural light, space, a gorgeous lawn, and most importantly a FLOW that makes sense for any event. We could not imagine a better place to get married and will forever cherish this special place.
It is a beautifully simple, yet very sophisticated space that allows you to create any vision of a fairytale. Our guests were all from out of state and we needed a venue with easy access to downtown Raleigh. Our guests were very appreciative of the short shuttle ride and the fact that the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all took place at the same location
The venue speaks for itself in it's beauty from the whitewashed brick, grand fireplace, and amazing lawn and greenery. Everything about our wedding day went perfectly and as the bride, I felt at ease and excited the entire day. I trusted the staff 100% to treat our guests with kindness and working with our amazing vendor team (that they recommended) they put on the best day possible. If I had to do it all over, I would choose them, no questions!
From the initial inquiry to the actual wedding day, they have been on top of every detail. They walked alongside me during wedding planning. They were just overall an incredible team to work with and the venue was absolutely beautiful. I love the high ceilings, white walls, and modern looking brick on the outside!
Everyone was so helpful during the entire planning process and made sure we were always taken care off. Their vendor list is great and we got so many compliments on every aspect of our wedding due to the thoughtful planning and organization that the staff had put together. Our vision and reception came together perfectly
From the moment we saw the venue we knew that this was our location. We cant begin to express our gratitude for everything that the team did to ensure that our day was truly unforgettable. We loved the fact that the interior was a blank canvas, which gives you the opportunity to design it as you see fit. From the beautiful outdoor patio to the brick fireplace there are various options to chose to have your ceremony.
