About Brakefield at Riverwalk

Grand Occasions to Intimate Gatherings

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.

My fiancé and I fell in love with this venue as soon as we saw it! We had looked around at numerous other venues, but nothing compared to this one in price or beauty. It is absolutely stunning!! The owner Carol designed a beautiful venue, and you need very little if any decor. Both Carol & Kelly were awesome to work with. Very responsive & accommodating. It is tucked away in a beautiful area next to the river with a great view. We would totally recommend this venue!

Carol designed a stunning venue! Between the venue itself and the beautiful views it is the perfect location for any event. My fiance and I choose Brakefield for our wedding venue and we couldn't have been happier! Carol and Kelly are both wonderful people to work with! If you need any information they will be more than happy to get it for you. Any time I had to contact them they were quick to respond with the information I needed if not more. The venue speaks for itself, it is absolutely beautiful on the inside and out. We had our ceremony outside and the views were phenomenal and our reception inside. The venue on the inside doesn't even need decor, it's just beautiful as it is. I can't say enough good things about this venue, it's definitely worth a look you won't be disappointed!

By far one of our favorite Venues. We love the staff and the venue is just Beautiful.

We have done numerous weddings here. This place is fantastic!!!! Its well designed and the owners are amazing to work with.

I have photographed 2 weddings at this venue. Carol is wonderful and the venue is absolutely gorgeous. This venue is a real gem and I highly recommend it to any bride looking for a unique location for their wedding and reception.

Brakefield is such a beautiful venue with several options to have your wedding take place indoors or out. With the breathtaking view of the river behind the site (imagine hearing faint rapids and looking out to such beauty as you recite your vows or toast your guests) and the gorgeous fireplace inside for a nice winter celebration, it entices many brides and other clients alike to host their special event. I have showcased a special event as well as done sets for weddings in the grand space (both indoors and out). Carol (the owner) is a breath of fresh air to work with as well. Light hearted in personality and decisive and hard working to get the job done right. You'll be overjoyed to book your next event here!

For an elegant setting be sure to check out this wonderful new venue!!
