About Brakefield at Riverwalk

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 and the Carolina Thread Trail, 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, beautiful baroque lighting, a Bridal Parlor housed inside the turret, Groom's quarters, and a Green Room that are beautifully appointed for use by wedding parties or as break-out meeting spaces for corporate gatherings. 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 Loggia, great for more intimate gatherings and special occassions. The breathtaking grounds at Brakefield include a back lawn and lush gardens overlooking the beautiful Catawba River and Carolina Thread Trail. This portion of the trail in North and South Carolina runs alongside two and a quarter miles of scenic river for amazing photographic opportunities.

We welcomed a new addition to the property in May 2015. The Carriage House is a lovely space for smaller weekday weddings and corporate events, meetings. It boasts all AV needs and a spectacular view of the river off the large deck. Check out our website for more.

    Gorgeous Venue!

    This venue is just gorgeous! We held our reception outside, with the beautiful river view behind us. Pro is that this venue is so close to Rock Hill, yet you are also surrounded by nature. You can walk literally 2 min and take pictures right at the river. The interior is beautiful too. The way it is decorated looks amazing. We only brought flowers and kept the decorations that Brakefield has already set up. Further, working with venue manager Kelly made us feel very homey at the venue. She helped us with everything we needed to plan in advance and also on our wedding day. I would totally recommend this venue to everyone who is looking for an intimate, outdoorsy place.

    Absolutely perfect

    The entire time we planned for our wedding went extremely smooth because the staff at Brakefield we’re always available to answer questions and wiling to make minor adjustments as the great day approached!

    Beautiful venue. I loved this venue because the owner built this venue with a bride in mind. She invested a lot in the decorating so that a lot of extra decorations would not need to do a whole lot.
