Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Just 15 miles from Raleigh and two miles from historic downtown Apex, this bucolic 11-acre property with a charming main house offers a gorgeous retreat for a chic country wedding. Stately, mature hardwoods and a serene pond create a beautiful backdrop for outdoor festivities.
  • With a sprawling covered veranda, a cozy fireplace, spacious dressing suites, and a formal bar, the meticulously renovated main house provides a versatile setting for an event. Generous packages include tables & chairs, a large tent with lighting and draping, an integrated AV system, and more, plus access to an extensive rental collection for additional furniture and décor.
  • A picture-perfect rustic barn adjacent to the courtyard makes for a showstopping photo op. Other lovely locations include a swing hanging from a century-old mulberry tree, a two-acre open field, and a classic split-rail fence.
