    We recently had our wedding at MacGregor Downs on Sat 10/8 during Hurricane Matthew. The power went out a few hours prior to the ceremony. Although we thought we may have to cancel our wedding, Linda and her staff kicked it into high gear and did everything they could to make sure we were still married. They found a generator so that the DJ could play music, they were still able to cook and serve the food despite the power outage, they moved the ceremony inside, lit every candle they had, and created us the most memorable, most romantic wedding we could have ever imagined! I can't thank them enough for everything they did. We will always remember that day thanks to MacGregor Downs and Hurricane Matthew. If you're looking for a wedding venue in Cary, I highly recommend the Country Club.

    My husband and I really wanted an outdoor ceremony for our November wedding but didn't want to worry about the possibility of rain. MacGregor Downs offered the perfect compromise by offering the use of a clear-top tent; the weather was gorgeous and the tent worked out beautifully! Another plus was the fact that all taxes and fees were included - there were absolutely no hidden costs! They offered two different chair options to choose from, as well as multiple table sizes, linens and candles for centerpieces. The venue itself is gorgeous - it has beautiful hardwood floors and the lakeside room has huge windows that provide a breathtaking view of the lake! The food was absolutely delicious, and the chef kindly adjusted the menu for my father and me so that we could have sweet potato with our dinner! We met with Linda, the manager/coordinator, and immediately felt relieved; she explained how flexible they are with everything, and took the time to walk us through a "day of schedule" and how it could be adjusted to fit our needs. Linda was a huge help throughout the entire planning process, and I don't think I could have managed any of this without her. On our big day, Linda made sure everything was taken care of; we didn't have to worry about anything other than enjoying our moment. We couldn't have been happier with the way everything turned out; the people we worked with were truly amazing and made our day a huge success! We would definitely recommend MacGregor Downs Country Club to anybody in need of a wedding venue! Linda, thank you for keeping me sane throughout this whole process and making sure our day ran smoothly! You're the best!!!
