About Homesteads Events @ Loray Mill

Homesteads Events @ Loray Mill is a banquet hall wedding venue located in Gastonia, North Carolina. This property is North Carolina’s largest historical preservation and was originally the largest textile mill in the South, built in 1902. The open-plan event space provides an old-world, industrial ambiance for your wedding event, along with beautiful areas that offers unique wedding photography opportunities, including a large saltwater pool on the grounds.

Facilities and Capacity

Homesteads Events @ Loray Mill can comfortably accommodate a range of celebrations, from an intimate engagement party to a grand wedding soiree, within their versatile event space. The main event hall offers space for up to 350 guests and features 38-foot-high ceilings and exposed brickwork throughout. Large windows allow natural light to flood the space adding a sense of bright airiness to the room. Poured concrete floors, wooden pillars, and exposed beams lend charm and character to the banquet hall, which can be enhanced and personalised with your own decor. This space is ideal for hosting both your ceremony and reception event as the open-plan structure allows for a wide variety of seating plans to best suit your needs.

Also available within the property is a fully furnished two bedroom loft apartment with full kitchen that can be used as a bridal suite the night before your special day, and then seamlessly transitioned to serve as your honeymoon suite for your wedding night. This convenient accommodation provides easy access to your event space on the day of your celebration for decoration and last minute touches to ensure your day is as perfect as you have dreamed.

    So much included.

    We have booked Loray because it is the most inclusive for the price!! Working with Emily has been great so far. Loray has been very accommodating and open to us touring as many times as we need to plan our day perfectly.
