    Heather was an AMAZING day of coordinator. Her personality is so fun and incredibly patient. She made the experience of the venue beautiful and stress free. Sarah and Heather and all the staff were super responsive and kind.

    Matthew's House

    We just had out wedding at the Matthew's House at the end of October and had the best experience! The venue is beautiful, with natural decorations and plenty of parking. Sarah was amazing to work with and could anticipate our needs before we even knew what we needed. The mix of the outdoor/indoor space is what sold us and everyone loved the different options! The day ran super smoothly and was mostly stress free. We recommend the Matthew's House for your wedding needs!

    The Matthews House's reply:

    Thank you so much Jennifer! It was a pleasure working with you and your families! We wish you both the very best!

    Went to a wedding here of a family member. Upon arriving met with friendly staff and they were friendly during the entire event. The area was clean and due to the mixed cultures of the bride and groom they were made to feel comfortable as the decorations were elaborate and beautiful. Moreover, an Item of mine was misplaced, and the staff spend the night looking for it and giving me updates. They went out of their way to find it. I left without the item and left my number. That morning I received a text that it had been found. Since I was no longer in town, they mailed it to me and withing a few days it was returned to me vial mail. I feel the staff went out of their way to help me. I don't usually write reviews, but I would highly recommend this venue to anyone.

    The Matthews House's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words Nicholous! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us!

The Matthews House has been one of my favorite venues to photograph. Not only are their grounds beautiful, they have the best staff any vendor could ever ask for. They were prompt, willing to help, and just a great time to be around. They have always gone above and beyond for my clients and have really become a staple in the Cary, NC area. LOVE this venue!
