About Aqueduct Conference Center

Hospitality. Inspiration. Renewal

Aqueduct is an elegant and intimate venue for your perfect wedding ceremony and reception. Whether you choose to be married in front of our stone hearth in the Main Lodge or on our back porch overlooking the 40 mile natural landscaped view, you and your guests are sure to have wonderful memories of your special day.

Located on one of the highest points in Orange County and on 22 acres of pastoral beauty, Aqueduct is one of the most unique wedding sites in Chapel Hill.  By itself, the lawn makes a picturesque spot for a ceremony, add a tent to continue with the reception. Or, let the music from the Main Lodge baby grand piano carry your guests indoors to a more intimate reception. Don’t forget about the large covered deck that can be used for cocktail hour with tall tables or clear the space for a dancefloor.

With so many options it’s hard to narrow down our capacity but know you need some idea of what our space can hold so here is our best judgment:

  • Main Lodge seated: 124
  • standing: 150
  • Deck seated: 49(banquet)
  • 115 for seated ceremony
  • 150 standing
  • 250 for outdoor ceremony/reception

Don't be afraid of a wedding on the deck. It was nice!

We had our wedding ceremony at Aqueduct, and were very pleased at both the location and the helpful friendliness of staff. Despite unfortunate torrential downpours all weekend, the setup went smoothly and the necessary adjustments from outdoor to covered seating were handled without any fallout or complications. Guests were comfortable and accommodated, and the groom and I were relaxed and carefree heading into our ceremony. Thank you Aqueduct staff for helping the day be a beautiful and memorable success!

We got married at the Aqueduct on Nov 1 and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect location. The place is absolutely beautiful, it hardly needs any additional decorations. Julie was amazingly helpful and responded to responded to every single question quickly, sometimes within even minutes! She went above and beyond giving us advice and recommendations and just overall helping the whole day to run smoothly. The chef made some of the best southern barbecue I have ever had. We had a large group in from out of state and they couldn't stop raving about how good the food was. "Best fried chicken I've had in my entire life" was mentioned by more than one person! The best part was that all our traveling friends and family were able to stay right there. Even 3 weeks later I still feel so lucky and blessed to have found such a perfect place for our wedding!

This is a beautiful venue tucked away in the country side of Chapel Hill and Julie is extremely professional and so easy to work with!

Beautiful, serene, natural setting. LOVE doing weddings there!

I recently went to a luncheon at the Aqueduct and it was absolutely gorgeous with country rustic charm!! Enough space for a large event, but with a very intimate atmosphere. The scenery was fantastic for photos, staff was very attentive and courteous, and the food was delicious. There is much you can do with this space inside and out.

I've officiated several weddings at The Aqueduct, even when it's been raining. The staff always did a great job to make sure the couple and their guests had the best service and best experience possible. I recommend them highly!
