    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.
