    I cannot say enough about how happy we were with The Great Room as our venue for both our ceremony and reception. We looked at basically all the urban indoor venues in the Triangle, and they were *by far* the most accommodating and affordable. As an all-inclusive venue (including a personal wedding coordinator!), you not only get the most bang for your buck, but they also take so much stress out of planning a wedding.

    The space is beautiful and functional. The food and drinks were amazing -- so many of our guests told us so. We didn't have to lift a finger on the day of. We dropped off all our various decor items (table runners, photos, etc), and the staff set them up beautifully. Our coordinator, Molly, was the jam. She was so responsive and helpful leading up to the event -- meeting with us, answering all our questions, giving suggestions and recommendations. And on the day of, she ran everything like a boss. The entire day went smoothly, thanks to her prep and management, and the amazing staff.

    Stress free planning and day-of

    Lauren and her team at the Great Room literally took care of everything from verifying the vendors prior to the day-of to running the show during our wedding day. I'm sure there were many details behind the scenes I had no idea about, and I'm so glad for it. The venue itself is highly customizable, though we went pretty minimal. We received so many compliments afterwards about the amazing food. Honestly, cannot say enough about our fantastic experience with the Great Room.

    I love doing weddings at this venue. It is quite unique and so well organized and operated. Danielle is the event manager and she is multi-talented and she and the staff there takes such good care of their wedding couples. In fact, they go over and beyond to make sure the wedding day is a grand success! I look forward to working with them many times in the future!

    What an awesome space for a wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, or after-party! The staff is always incredibly helpful, and it's location on Franklin St. is perfect for the Tarheel bride/groom. Your guests will be impressed by the high ceilings and stainless steel that make up the sleek atmosphere in the great room and they'll be able to continue the party at the end of the reception in the Back Bar. And don't forget to take into account the home-brewed beer and delicious food!
