The Rand-Bryan House is a rustic yet elegant wedding venue located in Garner, North Carolina. We offer our historic 19th-century home, scenic porch, and picturesque grounds for both your ceremony and reception. Situated 20 minutes from downtown Raleigh, our rural 135-acre farm is great for hosting both intimate gatherings and grand affairs. At the Rand-Bryan House, we are all about flexibility and we look forward to bringing your unique vision to life!
Facilities and Capacity
Couples can accommodate up to 150 guests at this scenic venue. For your ceremony, you can say your “I do's” in our beautiful, intimate garden or spacious side yard. Native trees and blooming bushes surround the house and provide a relaxing, picturesque southern setting for your cocktail hour. Your guests can enjoy the lush green grass as you dance the night away under the stars. Host your reception inside the house, on the front lawn, or under a tent surrounded by evergreens. The Rand-Bryan House also has a romantic wrap-around porch, perfect for cocktail hour, mingling with guests, or simply sitting in a rocking chair to enjoy a beautiful evening. If you prefer an indoor event, our beautiful historic house, built in 1871, is perfect. It features hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and an abundance of natural light. You can exchange your vows in our sunroom for a romantic and intimate ceremony, then we will convert the space to get the party started for your reception.
Our venue offers multiple wedding packages to accommodate a variety of budgets and tastes. We allow plenty of flexibility so that you can personalize your wedding to fit your style. Although we do not require you to choose from a pre-set vendor list, we are happy to provide recommendations for outstanding vendors who are familiar with the space. Our on-site preparation suite is perfect for those special photos while you get ready with your wedding party. Each package allows you full access to the entire house, extensive grounds, and parking lot. Caterers will have full access to the kitchen to take care of all of your culinary needs. Your choice of tables, chairs, linens, and tableware are available in packages, while tents are available at an additional charge.
In addition to hosting your ceremony and reception, the Rand-Bryan House is also happy to host your rehearsal dinner. We also host:
