Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Historically rich and timelessly beautiful, this Wake Forest estate dates back to the 18th century and features both indoor and outdoor venues. The stunning grounds are filled with impressive oak and magnolia trees, providing lovely photo ops at every turn.
  • The picturesque walled garden makes a gorgeous outdoor ceremony spot. And the recently remodeled pavilion, with its lofty exposed-beam ceiling and brick patio, offers a spacious and breezy reception area.
  • Special event coordination is included in wedding packages. Representatives will work with you to develop detailed timelines and venue layouts as you plan your big day, and they'll be on hand for your entire event to help ensure everything proceeds seamlessly.
