Beautiful Rustic Venue
Cedar Grove Acres was the PERFECT venue for our November 2020 wedding!! We fell in love with this venue immediately and it took no time for my husband and I, as well as our parents, to decide they had exactly what we were looking for. For brides looking for a rustic romantic venue on a budget, CGA definitely delivers! From the meadow, to the reception barn, to the tavern, and so on, each spot delivers its own different kind of beauty. Paula and Richard were phenomenal to work with throughout the entire process and the little cedar slices they hang for each couple that marries there is such a sweet touch! Their staff was super professional the day of, they even knew when someone was coming out of the barn and opened the doors before they even got there (we still have not figured out how they did that haha). The fire pit was a nice relaxed touch to our fall wedding as the night was a bit chilly. I highly recommend this venue for your wedding day!Sent on 04/05/2021
Cedar Grove Acres's reply:Thank you for your kind words. We try to always go above and beyond the call of duty and thanks for noticing that we've finally perfected the added touch of opening the barn doors when someone is coming. Your wedding was absolutely stunning on a fall day in November, down to the last detail, and we have enjoyed your wedding photos. We are always available for anniversary photos, expanding family photos, and perhaps vow renewals.

OMG!!! Words are not enough.
I can't say enough about this venue and it's owners Paula and Richard. Paula was very responsive and flexible during these unusual times. We looked all over the state of NC looking for the perfect place to have our perfect day and found that this venue was only 10 minutes from our home. Thank you Paula and Richard for your excellent service and family like atmosphere. I highly recommend this venue.Sent on 08/17/2020
Cedar Grove Acres's reply:Hi Rebecca, We enjoyed working with you both and helping you have the wedding of your dreams - even though your guest count was smaller than you originally intended due to these unprecedented times. Your day was a beautiful beginning of the life you are building together and we were honored to play a part in it.

Beautiful Farm Venue with the Kindest Owners
If you’re looking for a beautiful, picturesque farm venue, look no further than Cedar Grove Acres! Not only are the owners some of the kindest, easy to work with people, the property they have is beyond gorgeous! Paula is very responsive and was so flexible with us when we changed our day and time for engagement photos about 3 times (all last minute) when the weather forecast wasn’t working in our favor. After our wedding, our guests were raving about the property and how it is one of the most beautiful farm venues they had been to. I cannot say enough good things about our experience hosting our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and reception at CGA!Sent on 10/30/2019
Cedar Grove Acres's reply:Hi Krystin, Thanks so much for all the good things you said about our venue. Our goal is always to make your experience at our farm a once in a lifetime event! We enjoyed working with you so very much to insure your day was flawless. Good luck and best wishes to you both!

Cedar Grove Acres is a beautiful place to get married! There is so much thought and detail in every corner of this place. Paula is such a pleasure to work with and so helpful. Anytime I am asked for a rustic venue recommendation I send them to Cedar Grove Acres.
Thanks for all you do. I love what nature brings to a ceremony.
Cedar Grove Acres is an absolute gorgeous venue that is a dream to photograph! There are so many unique possibilities there... with the old barns and buildings, market lights hanging outside, the stage built, a field of cows, a huge fire pit... can you tell I love it there? Paula the owner is wonderful to work with and very accommodating. I love when my brides tell me they're getting married at Cedar Grove!
