About

Brakefield is the most enchanted venue for event hosting the Charlotte Metro area has to offer.

Nestled atop a wooded bluff overlooking the Catawba River a sits Brakefield.

Brakefield is unlike any other stand-alone event venue in this region. With its old-world European warmth and sophisticated charm, the unique architectural design invokes a feeling of "home" while old-world decor gives the venue a slight medieval feel upon entry and throughout.

The greystone and stucco facade is adorned with flickering gas lanterns, and a rich Andean walnut double entry door. Soaring spired roofs and a turret add to the European aesthetic of the Brakefield facility. Inside you'll find an ample entry hall with natural slate floors and, beautiful baroque lighting. We offer dual Bridal Suites each with a large bathroom on the same wing. The Bridal Dressing room is in the Turret with 20 foot high celings surrounded by windows. It is perfect for hair, makeup and gorgeous pictures. It has a hugegrand mirror. The Bridal lounge right next door has comfortable seating, TV, and another grand mirror. There is also a Green room on the bridal wing that can be used for a planner, coordinator additonal bridal space or storage of decor packaging. The Groom's quarters is housed in the Carriage House complete with masqculine decor, TV, and deck overlooking the river.The 3000 square foot Grand Hall is perfect for grand receptions or more formal corporate events.

From the Grand Hall, five sets of eight foot French doors lead to the 1200 square foot covered patio, great for more intimate gatherings and special occassions. The ceremony site is on the rear lawn overlooking the river and has a magnificent view and location for photography. We look forward to meeting with you!

Perfect for us!

I have catered many weddings here myself. It was my turn to get married and brakefield a riverwalk is my top choice. I love everything about this place. We rented a vintage car and it looked perfect with the stone exterior of the brakefield. Inside we love the groom Suite & the bridal suite. Our ceremony area was perfect outside and we can hear the babbling river, it was beautiful. The dining room was set up gorgeous and even the guest bathrooms are very pretty. It鈥檚 a very comfortable venue to work in and to have a wedding in! Kelly is amazing and always answered us quickly if we had any questions before our wedding. She made the planning with the venue and coordinating with vendors very easy. She is very kind and very sweet and I appreciate her so much! Allison her assistant is also very helpful and very kind. The bartender was awesome and treated all of our loved ones very well. It was finally my turn to get married and I am very pleased that we picked the Brakefield I recommend it 100% thank you so much Kelly you are the best! Our wedding was gorgeous!

Brakefield is the best!

Stop looking you have found your wedding venue! You should book the venue for Kelly鈥檚 expertise alone not to mention the gorgeous views, large open space and the ability to bring in any licensed vendors of your choosing. They made the day run smoothly and I couldn鈥檛 have asked for a better day! Thank you, thank you thank you!
