I cannot say enough good things about Haywood Hall. Greg was so incredibly flexible - we basically had free reign with decor and layout, just had to run it by him for approval. Renting the venue is extremely cost effective, but remember you have to bring in all of your own vendors. We really appreciated the option of bringing our own alcohol in, that saved us thousands (definitely a lot more work than leaving it up to the caterers, though). We loved having our wedding here and would recommend this venue to anyone!

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! :)

We got married in a beautiful ceremony out front and had our reception in the gardens. This place is amazing for the simple fact that when you rent Haywood you honestly do not have to decorate because of the natural beauty it comes with. All of our guests loved the 'big white house'. Greg helps you out tremendously and even suggests vendors that he knows are within your budget. I would 100% recommend.

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!

We absolutely LOVE working at the scenic and historic Haywood Hall! We have photographed weddings here for nearly 15 years and find it to be one of the most versatile places for our wedding couples and their guests. You will have to see some of our album images to see the lovely floral lawn for ceremonies, the dance floor which always delights, our guests enjoying the shade and ambiance of the ancient Magnolia Tree adorned with candle lit lanterns, and the cool relief inside of the Hall Museum complete with lovely Victorian seating great for portraits and fun candids! Haywood never fails to impress me with its updates and unique style for our couples looking for an intimate, one-of-a-kind wedding to share with their guests and family!
