Based in Raleigh, North Carolina, the Laurelbrook is a banquet hall wedding venue that is available to host ceremonies and receptions. An urban greenhouse, it bathes its occupants in natural light that streams through walls made of poly-carbonate windows. A stained concrete floor coupled with all of these windows provides a perfect base for couples to explore their creative side. This venue is, at its heart, eclectic, but it can become whatever a couple wants it to be. Its urban setting gives it an industrial, modern edge, but its market light-covered patio adds a touch of fairytale romance. The simplicity of this greenhouse lends itself completely to creativity, making this a truly versatile venue for a creative couple with a strong design vision.
Facilities and Capacity
The Laurelbrook can seat up to 150 guests indoors while its high ceilings stop it from ever feeling confined. Large garage doors open up the space to the courtyard, where your party can spill onto the patio. Couples can have the choice of tenting this outdoor area or leaving it uncovered. The greenhouse is 3,300 square feet and comes with heating and air conditioning, to keep loved ones comfortable no matter the weather. The patio adds an additional 2,400 square feet of space for guests. A get-ready room is available should the wedding party require it.
The Laurelbrook comes with an in-house caterer who can also provide alcohol. Guests can consult the venue’s list of preferred vendors for additional suggestions. This catering company provides servers, wedding cake, and cake cutting services, so you can have one less element to organize. Couples are encouraged to use a coordinator to help them make the best use of this unique venue. They are welcome to use either the venue-recommended company or choose their own. This unusual greenhouse comes with a variety of chairs and tables for couples to use, whether they are hosting a cocktail reception or a sit-down meal. Seating can be arranged so that it splits the room into sections for a cool, lounge vibe at a cocktail reception. The venue can take care of the setup and breakdown of furniture they supply. Linens and tableware are provided, as are certain decorations like aisle markers and centerpieces. This greenhouse aims to give couples a one-stop-shop for their day so that they can focus on what really matters: the person they love.
