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.

    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.

    Brakefield hosted our wedding on Friday September 14, during the scare of Hurricane Florence. In spite of all of the worry about weather leading up to the day, I can say that everything was AMAZING! During our wedding venue search, Brakefield was actually the place we visited last. As soon as I walked through the door, I fell in love! It literally looks like a small castle! I cannot say enough about the owner Carol and venue manager Kelly. Their professionalism is what really sold me. They happily answered any questions we had leading up to the day and made the entire process as smooth as possible. I would gladly refer them to any person planning an event in the Rock Hill/Charlotte area.

    Hi Shantal,

    We are so, so glad that Florence calmed considerably before your day. I wish we could have been outdoors for your ceremony but, you may have blown away!. At least the rain held off. Wishing you all the best and thank so much for letting us host your day. Super nice review and it is greatly appreciated!! Take Care!
    Sincerely,
    Carol and Kelly

    Brakefield at Riverwalk was an incredible venue for our wedding. The beauty of the surrounding scenery with the river in the background made all of our pictures look incredible without any effort. The decorations inside were elegant and allowed us to spend less time focusing on how to decorate our venue and instead focus on more important matters. The venue itself was built specifically for weddings, so the entire layout works wonderfully. Finally, Carol (the owner) was a treat to work with - completely professional and prompt with everything, helping remove a lot of stress as we approached our wedding date. The in house coordinator, Kelly, was everything we could have hoped for and more in a coordinator - friendly, professional, and yet not afraid to keep other vendors (and guests!) in line so that everything went smoothly. We hesitated a bit when deciding between several venues and could not be happier we chose Brakefield at Riverwalk.

    Hi Kelly and Camille,
    We hope married life is going great! This is certainly a rave review. Nothing better than getting it right and making our clients happy! Such a great move hiring Kelly to coordinate for you. She knows her stuff! I appreciate the nice things you said about me as well. It is always a pleasure to work with such nice people as you and your guests were. Wishing you a bright, prosperous future. Take good care!
    Sincerely,
    Carol
