You may see another review for 4/22/2017; however, that does not appear correct as we were the ones married at Bennett Bunn on 4/22/2017 and can attest to the fact that we were MORE THAN SATISFIED with our decision to hold our wedding at this venue. Privately owned, the husband and wife team were more than responsive to all of our questions and concerns, taking great care to deliver on everything! Our guests are still gushing about the feel of the beautiful farm, the special touches of the main lodge and the overall beauty. Even the smokers, sequestered to a spot off to the side of the building, found comfortable chairs and a working fire pit to keep off any chill.

To stress how happy we are with this venue, we are already considering holding an annual event to gather friends and family as NO ONE WANTED TO LEAVE THE NIGHT OF OUR WEDDING!

We wish the owners much success and to future brides or grooms, this venue is awesome! Jill, we would be more than happy to be added to your reference list!

"Breathtaking" is the only word I can use to describe Bennett Bunn. The venue, natural surroundings, all of it. It's also the word that I heard from our guests over and over again.

We considered other venues, but BB had everything we wanted. No tents to set up, because the space provided was adequate and perfect. The caterers (Rocky Top Hospitality) were so pleased when I told them that we had chosen BB, because they appreciated the facilities provided. First class, all the way around.

I worked with Jill for several months and she made the process made this not only an enjoyable experience, but one that was very personal to me and my husband. We wanted the wedding to reflect us, not a picture from a wedding magazine.

Jill . . . thank you, thank you, thank you. You made the most important day of our lives even more beautiful.

The Grand Ballroom was beautiful and perfect for our wedding. We did the ceremony and rehearsal in the same room with a cocktail hour between to provide time for a second set up. Everything worked out perfectly. For reference we had 120 people seated with a full band and dance floor. Perfect amount of space. Everyone at the facility was so helpful and flexible both before the event and during. The day of, everything was set up just as we had anticipated, perfection!

We love working at the Grand Ballroom of Raleigh! Great people, Great location and Great view. We have catered several events and the staff there has always been very accomodating and nice. I highly recomend this for brides looking for a downtown reception site.

The Grand Ballroom is a beautiful ballroom with stunning views of the cityscape. It is a wonderful canvas for any bride to dream her perfect wedding reception under the city lights. Jill and Jenn are kind and gracious hosts.

Historic Venues does a wonderful job of helping our guests plan and execute their events. They are reasonably priced and work hard to provide a great space and a great time.
