The best wedding venue in the Triangle!!

I can't say enough nice things about the beauty of this venue and the quality of their team! Sarah and Heather worked so hard to coordinate the best wedding day experience for me and my husband. It's in a great location in downtown Cary close to hotels and lots of nice restaurants for our out of town guests. The house itself is sooooo beautiful. We ended up having our ceremony and reception in the indoor carriage house, which was a great size for our party! You can take so many lovely pictures on the grounds of the venue. It even has a bridal suite upstairs and a groomsmen suite downstairs! My husband and I stayed at the venue for our wedding night in the bridal suite, and it was just heaven! It's a wonderful venue for every memorable occasion!
