    Best Downtown Raleigh Venue

    Melrose Knitting Mill was absolutely the most perfect Wedding Venue!!! I looked into every downtown Raleigh venue and Melrose was just perfect. It has an enormous amount of character and charm, we got a countless number of compliments from guests on how amazing the venue was!!! It is also the perfect venue for a flip, the ceremony upstairs was beautiful and then guests were taken downstairs to the gorgeous hanging gardens and bar for cocktail hour. We loved the surprise element that after cocktail hour guests were taken back upstairs and the room was completely transformed for the reception!!!

    Jessica and her team at Southern Oak Events (exclusive planners for the venue) are also absolutely amazing. They know that venue inside and out and run your wedding like a well-oiled machine. They answered every question, took care of everything, and made it the most perfect, worry-free day!!!

    We also hired Jessica and her husband for the photobooth and it was SO perfect and fun!!! I would absolutely recommend Melrose Knitting Mill!!

    Perfect Modern Industrial Venue

    Melrose Knitting Mill was the modern-industrial venue of our dreams. Our guests raved about how cool the venue was. The day was beautiful from start to finish. We could not be happier with the entire experience. The food was incredible, and our wedding coordinator, Jessica Tilton, made sure that the day went flawlessly. We would do it all over again without changing a thing.
