    Beautfiul venue in heart of downtown!

    I highly recommend Haywood Hall for any couple looking for an outdoor venue in downtown Raleigh. We chose Haywood because it was affordable and the house/grounds are stunning. We did not decorate at all and the photos are beautiful because the scenery is so nice all year round at Haywood. The tent rental recommended by the venue was seamless and Caryll at Haywood was very pleasant to work with. Even if the weather isn't perfect on your wedding day, there is so much space for tents in the garden that you will still be dry. And the house itself is very cool - all of our guests were milling around in there and talking about how cool it was. Great, hidden-gem sort of place steps away from the Capitol building.

    Awesome Venue!

    I worked with Carryl and she is wonderful. We haven't had our wedding yet but already she's been so kind, flexible, and fun to work with. They're extremely professional and the venue itself is so unique and gorgeous with a ton of character. I love that it's right downtown but won't end up costing us an arm and a leg!

    We loved having our wedding at Haywood Hall! When we were venue searching we were disappointed with how many venues basically control every aspect of your day for triple the cost (or more) or what you would get with Haywood Hall. We were able to select all of our own vendors, which kept costs down and we were able to keep the leftover alcohol we brought in for ourselves ;) Greg is super responsive and helpful in suggesting vendors.

    With NC weather, anything can happen during any season, and this venue does not have another option for a rain plan. Just something to consider. The day before our wedding was 80 and sunny, our day was 65 and cloudy with a threat of showers, but it never happened. I recommend getting a clear tent because you can see all of the beautiful greenery in the garden! We could also see the PNC building lit up after it got dark.

    Our guests were all from out of state so they loved being in Downtown Raleigh and also getting to experience a piece of Raleigh history. We received so many compliments on the house and the gardens.

    Choose Haywood Hall! :)

A piece of history nestled among old trees in the heart of Raleigh - such a perfect location for a wedding. Highly recommended!

We've had the pleasure of working at Haywood Hall on a number of Weddings in the past and have quite a few coming up in the future. The space is in a great downtown location, but feels more like a private garden! There is plenty of parking (rare for a downtown venue) and the house and gardens are beautiful. We've enjoyed partying with our couples and their guests outside on the back patio under the large trees and gorgeous scenery. Ceremonies on the front lawn are just perfect! The owner has always been a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend this venue!

Haywood Hall Museum House and Gardens is the perfect downtown Raleigh wedding venue. With its deep history and gorgeous, well kept grounds, it is a great backdrop to a romantic wedding. The staff there is the most friendly and helpful staff I have yet to work with at a venue. Love when I get to shoot a wedding at Haywood Hall!! The events there are some of the most beautiful I have ever shot!
