Dream Come True

Graylyn was an absolute dream. I have grown up going there with my family so being able to get married there was so special. The staff is amazing, kind, and so incredibly helpful. I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone. It was absolutely perfect!

Perfect wedding venue!

My husband and I had the most beautiful fall wedding at Graylyn! It turned out better than we had even hoped.

The beauty of the surroundings was a source of constant comment and exhilaration from our guests. Small details that we were initially somewhat concerned about in terms of the flow of our schedule worked out beautifully. The different rooms and outdoor spaces created a sense of anticipation, wonder, and surprise at each stage of the wedding celebration.

The Graylyn staff was attentive, warm, and professional. We were so impressed by them. Cindy and Chandler in particular were extremely accommodating and helpful in bringing our vision to light, and worked closely with us to plan everything throughout the course of a year.

The food was delicious and the bartenders were great. The getting-ready rooms for the bridesmaids and groomsmen were perfect spaces. Finally, many of our guests stayed at Graylyn which was really fun and special, as people had traveled from all over. Our guests loved exploring Winston. We would do it all over again in a heartbeat!

Outstanding

We had a rehearsal dinner at The Graylyn Estate in late September. It really was the perfect venue for us. Dinner was held in the Atlantis Room and the after party was held right outside in the White Garden. The staff made planning a breeze; many options for food and drink and they offered several useful suggestions for how the evening would unfold. All the food was excellent, in particular the lamb. We could not have imagined a better place - a cool fall evening affair at a stone mansion, beautiful landscaping, great food and drink, lovely attentive staff, and time with family and friends (with a full moon to boot)!
