About The Carolina Inn

The Carolina Inn has a long-standing tradition of helping brides and grooms fulfill their most cherished wedding dreams. From the exquisitely beautiful to the elegant and romantic, The Carolina Inn has been transforming wedding fantasies into memories that live forever for more than eight decades. Providing an atmosphere of warmth and grace, the Inn’s intimate parlors, secluded courtyards and expansive ballrooms are perfect for wedding receptions or the exchanging of vows.

From the stylish Old Well Room, with its evocative Art Deco décor, especially popular for weddings, to the elegant John Sprunt Hill Ballroom, neoclassical in design, The Carolina Inn has been making wedding dreams come true since 1924. With a tradition of hosting memorable bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, champagne brunches, wedding receptions and banquets, it devotes equal care to events for ten guests or five hundred.

For many alumni and others with a fondness for the charm of historic Chapel Hill and The University of North Carolina, wedding events at The Carolina Inn are a family tradition.  To learn more about our Chapel Hill wedding venues, please explore our Facilities Guide.

We had our reception in the Old Well room, and it was perfect. We had the privilege of working with Kristen, who was knowledgeable, incredibly responsive, and really nice too! We were planning from out of town, and Kristen made the whole thing very easy. She even accommodated our requests for adding a certain beer to the bar (a favorite of the groom). The service at this hotel is incredible, and the decor is so beautiful I want to move in. Our food was amazing (we did stations, which got rave reviews from guests, and the late-night snack was a HUGE hit!). If anything went wrong, I never knew about it; the event was flawless. Thank you to Kristen and all of the amazing staff at The Carolina Inn - we had the time of our lives!
