The Perfect Venue
The choice of the Bradford or our wedding venue was easily the best one we made for our wedding! You can tell it was designed as a wedding venue because of the attention to every single detail that the staff at the Bradford displayed. The ballrooms are just gorgeous and the venue is just full of beautiful indoor and outdoor photo ops. We also opted for the Friday-Saturday package, which was nice to have the space to unwind in before our rehearsal. And they breakfast was just the perfect amount for the wedding day. Working with Maggie and Sarah over the year of our engagement kept everything so stress-free, and that’s saying something since we planned a pandemic wedding. Our family couldn’t stop saying how absolutely beautiful the venue was and we cannot wait to see the pictures! You will never regret choosing the Bradford for your wedding day:)Sent on 01/06/2021
The Bradford's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Jemima! We absolutely loved working with you + Stephen! It was such a beautiful + joyful weekend! Cheers to you two!

Best Wedding Experience!
There’s a lot of beautiful places to get married in North Carolina, but none top The Bradford. We planned our wedding a couple years in advance, and during our first tour we knew this was the place for us. Not only is the property stunning, but the staff was exceptional. What we loved about it was that you could customize every detail of the wedding. The Bradford property allows you to fill the space however you envision your perfect day.
We booked our wedding before their renovation, and wow was it an amazing surprise to know that we would be able to use the new space. The renovation really reflects on the experience you’ll receive if you choose to have your wedding there. It shows that they’re always looking to elevate their space— always trying to make the best and easiest possible wedding experience for their customers. In addition, the small thoughtful details around the property make everything that much more special.
When COVID happened, we were scrambling last minute to find a solution. The date was important to us, and something we’ve looked forward to for years. Sarah at The Bradford especially, was such a positive person throughout the experience, kept us updated, and was able to work with us last minute on a plan to still get married and use the house for the entire weekend. We still had our perfect day with all of our vendors (just elopement style!). If they can handle a pandemic so gracefully last minute, I can’t honestly see anything else popping up that they can’t handle!
It also goes to show, whether you’re having 7 guests, or 100 guests, The Bradford is the perfect place to get married :)Sent on 07/03/2020
The Bradford's reply:Jessica, thank you so much for your kind words! You and Stephen were an absolute joy to work with even during the difficult times. We are SO honored and lucky that you chose The Bradford! Much love to you both - your wedding day will forever be in our hearts! :)

Intimate and beautiful venue!
We LOVED being able to get married at the Bradford! The venue is intimate, quiet, and picturesque, and the staff (shoutout to Maggie and Sarah!) are so sweet and professional! We wanted to have our ceremony in the woodsy clearing behind the house, and BLESS these women for whacking weeds and taking pictures of the spot for us during sunset so we could see how the lighting would look during the wedding ceremony. They seriously go above and beyond, and I can't recommend the Bradford or their awesome staff enough!Sent on 02/22/2020
The Bradford's reply:Sharyn! We can't thank you enough for these kinds words. Your wedding day was a complete dream - one we will never forget! Thank you for choosing The Bradford!!
