Hudson Manor exceeded our expectation for our daughter and her now husband's wedding on 8/18/18. We planned the entire wedding remotely, as only the bride and groom live in Raleigh. All guests including parents of bride and groom were from out of town. The service is truly all inclusive- they were wonderful. I could not recommend a venue more highly- their suggested vendors for services such as photographers and flowers were great! We could not have been happier! Thank you for making our daughter's and her husband's special day amazing!! I am sharing some of the photo's shared by friends- we'll update with the photographer pics when we get them!Sent on 08/22/2018

The Hudson Manor was one of the first venues we visited and I LOVED it! Melissa was so nice and very responsive. We had the ceremony in the outdoor garden area, which was beautiful. I liked how there was an indoor chapel area in case of bad weather, which was also very nice for a ceremony. I also loved how the was an outdoor patio attached to the ballroom. Everything about this set up was great. The major thing that stuck out to me was that it was all inclusive. I loved having Melissa there to help me when I needed it and on my wedding day she executed everything perfectly. When I showed up on my wedding day, everything was set up just how I wanted it and I didn't have to do a thing but enjoy it! I definitely recommend this venue!Sent on 12/10/2017

The Hudson Manor is one of the best venues to have a wedding. My new husband and I went to several locations around the Raleigh area and nothing could compare to what they had to offer. Not only were we able to get dressed in the 100-year-old home, there is a chapel and reception hall right on site, which provided my guests with the ability to transition from one to the other after the ceremony. This was especially important for our elderly family members who have a hard time moving around.Sent on 12/06/2017
Melissa, the owner of The Hudson Manor also doubled as the coordinator for the day. She provided me with vendors from a preferred list while approving some of my own choosing as well. She is on top of her game and was extremely helpful in assisting me organize the ‘day of’ timeline. She coordinated with each vendor and kept my mom (a.k.a POC) up to date, which was key to making sure the day went smoothly.
We simply cannot say enough about Melissa or The Hudson Manor. It is definitely worth the trip out to Louisburg.
