History

This modern space is housed in the Carolina Trust Building, a four-story Classical Revival building that was originally constructed in 1902. Originally home to a string of banks and professionals, the Carolina Trust Building was purchased by McLellan’s dime store in the late 1920s. The store had a huge retail presence in Raleigh’s business district for decades. The first floor contained the main retail areas and the luncheonette, and the upper floors served as stock rooms. The Glass Box continues the building’s strong tradition of active community uses that has for so long been a part of the Carolina Trust Building.

    Amazing Space!

    I am a planner with C&D events, and have worked with the team at the Glass Box many times. You cannot go wrong booking this space, it is great for small weddings, baby and wedding showers, engagement parties and has the most beautiful light for photoshoots. Molly and Taylor are always amazing to work with and so accommodating. At such an affordable price it is worth every penny.

    Perfect venue for our intimate + virtual hybrid wedding

    The Glass Box was the perfect venue for our intimate wedding! We worked with Taylor, and she was responsive and worked with us to set up the venue to suit our needs. They were flexible when we had a few changes in plans.
    The outdoor patio was beautiful for our ceremony, and indoor space was lovely for the reception afterwards. We really liked being able to have an outdoor ceremony in the middle of downtown.
    We streamed our wedding on Zoom. The Wifi was great and we had enough outlets and space for the laptops, projector, and cameras.
    The venue and staff helped make our wedding day as flawless and memorable as possible.

    Simply Perfect

    We chose Glass Box after making the difficult decision to downsize our original wedding due to COVID, by way of a suggestion from our wedding planner.

    From the moment we took a face to face tour, we were really impressed by the space. The Glass Box (as the name suggests) is surrounded by windows, which brings in so much natural light, which is great for photos. The room also already has a few decorations in the theme of gold and white, which worked well with our wedding colors (navy, purple and gold).

    Aside from the space itself, we were impressed with the staff that we worked with. Taylor is amazing to work with! She is extremely responsive and did her best to make sure our day was as special as stress free as humanly possible.
    I would highly recommend the Glass Box for not only wedding ceremonies/receptions, but for other celebrations as well.
