I grew up in California, so I was excited to have my wedding in a traditional southern setting. The venue is gorgeous! Scenic landscapes, gorgeous indoor event space, and beautiful wrap-around porch. I always wanted my wedding in a naturally beautiful place, and this was it! Martha was a joy to work with. So helpful! She has wonderful suggestions about how to execute your wedding dreams. It stormed the day of my wedding leaving the grass soaked. We decided to move the outdoor ceremony inside. It was still absolutely gorgeous and everyone was comfortable, cool and dry! The venue is a 15 minute drive from downtown Raleigh. Convenient for an afterparty! We had a beautiful day filled with love, joy, and fun. Thank you!Sent on 07/25/2018

Betond happy bride!
As a newlywed, I’d like to speak on behalf of someone who has been through the process of planning, deciding, dreaming, paying and loving every minute of being engaged. More importantly, I loved my wedding because of the vendors we chose and the people we had behind us!Sent on 06/19/2019
My husband and I wanted a venue that reflected our lifestyle/interests, allowed us to use our own vendors and would accommodate 115 guests. We are beyond grateful we chose The Rand-Bryan House and was able to work with the owner, Martha, for planning and executing our wedding.
From day one Martha was punctual and responded quickly to our emails. She was upfront with all the expectations that came along renting the home, including allowing us nearly free-reign to decorate inside and outside. This meant we were able to turn the house into our dream wedding! Martha’s team helped coordinate and navigate the planning process alongside other vendors, including our catering, bartending, day-of coordinating, DJ and photography. The whole process was seamless!
I am beyond happy with having chosen The Rand-Bryan House. If you’re looking for a venue that allows freedom to choose your own vendors, create and dream your perfect wedding, and help execute a flawless day, this is the place for you!

A beautiful venue for any occasion!
From the first time we met Martha and saw the Rand-Bryan House to the final day, we were impressed! The house and grounds are lovely and very private and perfect for the size of group we planned for our 50th anniversary. Martha was very personable and accomodating for our questions and needs and was present for the six hours of our celebration, in case a need arose. She also recommended our wonderful caterer, who we were thrilled with. We would definitely use the Rand-Bryan House for an event in the future---maybe a granddaughter??Sent on 06/01/2019
