The Rand-Bryan house was the perfect location for our outdoor wedding ceremony and indoor/outdoor reception. The staff was wonderful to work with, and the facility and grounds are emaculate. It's a stunningly beautiful place, with gorgeous landscaping - making for unbelievable wedding photographs. I can't say enough great things about Martha and the Rand-Bryan house! They were flexible in allowing US to choose the vendors we wanted to work with (as long as they were insured, etc.), instead of choosing between 2-3 exclusive vendors, as many other wedding venues do. Martha had some suggestions of caterers/rentals/etc she's worked with before, which was helpful. Our wedding day was a perfect day, and we're so delighted to have celebrated it at the Rand-Bryan house.

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!
Not only is this venue private and charming...Martha genuinely loves seeing your day come together! 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
