About

The Carver Lake Venue is a farm wedding venue with a barn in the greater Raleigh, North Carolina region. This rustic venue is both outdoorsy and private, with beautiful mountain vistas, a lakefront ceremony site, and a classy barn option. Couples will find this venue roughly 50 minutes from the Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

Facilities and Capacity
This wedding venue welcomes up to 200 guests to a couple鈥檚 wedding. At the Carver Lake Venue, couples can marry on the bank of the sparkling Carvers Lake. This ceremony location includes a stunning white pergola that can be draped with flowing fabric or flowers for a charming backdrop. The lake sparkles in the sunlight and is bordered with a forest of trees. Plenty of grassy outdoor areas surrounded by trees offer opportunity for natural and scenic wedding portraits. The two-story barn, with a light wooden exterior, features massive sliding barn doors for the authentic barn-wedding feeling. Inside, the paved floor meets walls of vertical wooden planks. Multiple windows invite sunlight into this venue during the day.

    Truly beyond AWESOME

    Wonderful. Not only was the venue beyond mt expectations but Patty helped pull all the loose in together, and just made the wedding so spectacular. It was as if every detail have been considered. I have already started praising this place to the people I know.

    Loved Carver Lake Venue!

    We are so honored that we could get married at Carver Lake Venue. We were a very DIY wedding, and the Carver Lake team was very supportive, and informative throughout the whole process. We appreciated how transparent they were with us, and allowed us to use our creativity as well. On the wedding day, they were so helpful! We had a rainy day for our wedding, and they were supportive and helpful to make sure our wedding was still beautiful!

    Exceptional!!

    My family had a wonderful experience! I have read over a few reviews talking about the owners being there, the different rules, etc. The owners are very transparent and upfront about their requirements before a contract is ever signed. There were no "surprises". Patty calls, texts or emails back either right away or within a decent amount of time. The cost of the venue, for what is included, is very competitive if not better than other venders we visited who didn't offer the amenities Carver Lake did. Thank you all for making our daughter's wedding day perfect and completely dreamy!! Highly, highly recommended!!

    Carver Lake Venue's reply:

    Cindy your words mean so much to us. We try to make every wedding all the family wants it to be. When you get this kind of recognition it makes all the hard work and long days worth it. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others.
