    Highgrove made our wedding day incredible and I could not imagine having my wedding at another venue! After visiting for the first time, there was no doubt in our minds that is where we wanted our ceremony and reception to be. The staff is very professional and I really enjoyed working with Abby to plan all of the details. The venue is absolutely gorgeous from the pergola overlooking the lake where the perfect weather let us have a beautiful ceremony to the reception ballroom with the twinkling lights in the ceiling and all around floor length windows. We used mostly the most common vendors that Highgrove works with and they all worked together amazingly. The food was also absolutely incredible and people are still raving about how delicious it was! Only bad thing I can say is that the Krispy Kreme flambe station was too short and I missed it with everything else going on (that was my bad though.) Overall, Highgrove is amazing and I would suggest it to anyone! I already have been suggesting it to everyone I know that is planning a wedding!

    We loved working with highgrove. It is so convenient to have a venue that almost everything is included, especially a coordinator. All my guests raved about how beautiful the grounds are and the new outdoor fireplace and covered patio added such a special cozy feel. Couldn't have asked for a better day!

    Highgrove Estate is located just a few miles from our office in Fuquay-Varina. We cannot say enough great things about the venue itself, the staff, or the food (so amazing!). We always look forward to providing services at their location. The venue provides the couple with a private, beautiful space to host their event. The outdoor Ceremony and Cocktail Hour locations are perfect on a sunny North Carolina afternoon. Their gorgeous Ballroom is the ideal setting for a romantic Reception and perfect for dancing into the night! We highly recommend Highgrove Estate!
