Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A Wake Forest institution since the turn of the century, this lovely building has served as (among other things) a grand residence, medical office, bookstore, and ice cream parlor. Family-owned and lovingly refurbished, it’s now a wonderful, private, flexible event venue with a truly caring, experienced staff.
  • Exposed brick walls, gleaming wood floors, and bead board ceiling hung with crystal chandeliers create an atmosphere rich in historic charm. The space is large enough for both your ceremony and reception, and there’s a lovely outdoor courtyard for cocktail hour.
  • The nearby Meeting House is an artfully restored 1893 gem, and boasts two well-appointed parlors for your bridal party preparations. The home can also be rented for overnight accommodations, or as a gathering spot for your rehearsal dinner or morning-after brunch.
