Stunning venue for the perfect wedding
Our wedding planner, Blake, made our pandemic wedding at Melrose Knitting Mill feel more magical than even our original plan. The venue is absolutely stunning and the food is our favorite in all of North Carolina and our wedding meal did not disappoint. Our guests raved about the ambiance, staff and food!Sent on 10/12/2020
Melrose Knitting Mill's reply:Thank you, Liz! We are so happy that Blake and our Melrose Knitting Mill staff were able to make your wedding a beautiful day.

We LOVED this venue! However it was slightly out of our budget! If we had a slightly larger budget we most definitely would have gone with Melrose! It’s about $5000 to rent the venue with alcohol fees at $30/pp and buffet dinner starting at $58/pp. If you have the money I would definitely consider this venue for any couple in the Raleigh/Durham area!Sent on 08/01/2019

My wedding was at Melrose Knitting Mill and planned by Sarah Skrobialowski. Sarah was incredible to work with and paid attention to every small detail. She worked very hard, was extremely organized, and the wedding went perfectly. She took the time to call every vendor and ensure they were prepared. On the wedding day, she had everything prepared exactly as planned. It was clear she took a lot of pride in her work and left no stone unturned. The venue was beautiful and we got many compliments from our guests. It was a great all around experience. I would highly recommend Sarah and Melrose.Sent on 10/23/2019
