The original Rand-Bryan House was built on the farm in 1897. In 1950, it was purchased by the parents of Martha Bryan Liles, the current owner of the house. The property was a dairy farm during her childhood. By 2009, the Greek Revival style home was renovated, and today, the historic mansion and garden serves as a space for couples to make memories.

The rustic wedding venue is located 20 minutes from downtown Raleigh. It is 32 minutes from Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

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!

The Rand-Bryan was perfect for our wedding/reception. The house is beautiful and spacious, and the property is pristine. The owner, Martha, was so easy to work with. She made us feel like family and was there for us every step of the way during logistics planning.
Compared to the other venues we visited, this was the most beautiful and most affordable option in the area. We are absolutely thrilled with the way everything looked on our big day.
Do your homework and include this as one of your options. You'll see why we chose the Rand-Bryan.

Martha has been a pleasure to work with each time! Martha is an excellent communicator and very professional. The Rand-Bryan House is a beautiful venue and I enjoy working with the owners!

The Rand-Bryan house has great parking and handicap accessibility as well as great flexibility to use the space in many different ways! Southern charm meets sophisticated simplicity! POUR loves serving here!

We've entertained twice now at the Rand-Bryan House, Martha and her husband have been accommodating and great to work with. Highly recommend

The Rand-Bryant House is a charming venue for weddings. We love providing wedding florals for this venue. The house and grounds are perfect. Light filled reception area and beautiful garden areas. Martha makes everyone comfortable and welcome. Highly recommend this venue. JoLynn Victorian Seasons

The Rand-Bryan House is a stunning venue and absolutely one of my favorites to work. I think what I love most is how many options there are for couples wishing to have their ceremony outdoors, since there are several beautiful spots available. Those choosing to have an indoor ceremony (or those who need it for an inclement weather back up plan) have a spacious room with floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the feeling of outside in. You really can't go wrong! Martha is flexible and professional and truly great to work with.
