Highgrove estate did a wonderful job handling all of the details of our wedding. We were able to book and host our wedding in 2 months because it is such an all inclusive venue. Everyone was friendly and responsive. The venue is simply gorgeous and needs very little in terms of additional decorating.Sent on 12/13/2019

One of my favorite wedding venues in our area, Highgrove Estate has a very caring and sincere staff. Everything about this amazing venue is exemplary and they offer so many extras as part of their wedding packages that it will make things much easier for your wedding planning. The minute you walk through their red front door, you will be charmed completely.
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!
We have DJd at Highgrove since they started having weddings. Every event is so fun and special and the staff there is great! We always look forward to events there.
