Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Just a quick drive from Raleigh and its suburbs, this peaceful, pastoral spot offers an array of beautiful outdoor ceremony spaces, all with views of the lush woodlands and distant hills.
  • The barn-style reception hall is gorgeous, with a stained plank cathedral ceiling, shiplap walls, and a covered patio perfect for an al fresco cocktail hour or overflow seating.
  • Your package comes with loads of lovely and useful extras, like vintage furniture, rustic-chic decor touches on the windowsills, and access to the well-appointed bride and groom dressing suites.
