Thank you for allowing us to host our wedding at Mordecai Historic Park! We used the whole grounds for our ceremony and reception (the upper field for our ceremony and the lower field for our reception), and it was just BEAUTIFUL! Our guests could park easily, enjoyed the gorgeous grounds, and had a blast. We also want to thank Betsy for working with us on all of the rental agreements and logistics - she was absolutely wonderful and so very helpful! We will always remember our wedding day at Mordecai! Best, Meredith & Chris

If you are looking for an amazing ceremony and reception site, and you want it as AFFORDABLE as possible, this is a great option! The City of Raleigh Parks system owns the Mordecai Historic Park (which is a collection of historic - and beautiful - homes/buildings right near downtown on the edge of Historic Oakwood), so the rental fee is about as inexpensive as it can get. You do have to be totally prepared to build your wedding there from the ground up, because you are literally just renting the outdoor space (the Mordecai House is closed to visitors outside of park hours), but if you are ready to do that, then definitely check this place out. For our wedding, we are bringing in the tables, chairs, linens, tent, dance floor, decor, lights, etc. so you can see what I mean about building your wedding yourself. But the slew of historic houses and buildings on the site are incredibly charming, and the location is fabulous - close to downtown, but still has a homey "neighborhood" feel, as it's right on the edge of the Historic Oakwood district of Raleigh. Another plus - Brynne Hoffman, the Associate Director at the site, is incredibly friendly and helpful when it comes to answering questions about the rental. She's very honest about what you need to do yourself, so you aren't disillusioned about the amount of work that goes into building it yourself, which is nice.
Definitely check this site out for a cost-friendly, outdoor, quaint/rustic experience!

Words cannot express this gorgeous, special and intimate chapel. I did not want a show...I wanted a personal, intimate environment to commit to my husband in front of my closest family and friends. St. Mark's is apart of Mordecai Historical Park which is a gorgeous park with great opportunity for pictures. The staff were consistently helpful throughout all of the months and weeks leading up to our wedding day. I was able to stop by to see the chapel, bring my photographer...my mother all on different occasions to see the location.
