Jessica W. · Getting married on 05/05/2022
Sarah was amazing to work with. We had to move our ceremony and reception due to Covid but still wanted to get married on our original date. Sarah allowed us to use the venue for our elopement which was extremely nice of her. She was very helpful when we moved our date as well as she sent a list of several dates the venue had opened so we could pick one. The venue itself is very beautiful.Sent on 10/08/2020

A Dream Come True
Our wedding experience was a rocky one, by once we met Sarah and booked The Matthew's House, it became much much more enjoyable. We lost our venue three months out from our date and I was scrambling to find a new place. Everywhere that I called was booked, but The Matthew's House wasn't!
Sarah expertly added us in for a 100 person wedding that would use the entire property. Then COVID hit just two weeks later and that plan ended up falling apart. She was available anytime I had any questions and was instantly able to solve any problem that arose. The venue was absolutely gorgeous for my bridal portraits and we rearranged the plans for the ceremony right afterward.
The day of the outdoor, 10-person ceremony, a massive thunderstorm opened up just minutes before the ceremony was about to begin. It sounds like something out of a soap opera. I was nervously pacing in the blue bridal room because I couldn't go downstairs to redirect the decor or anything, but the weather didn't even phase Sarah. My family was wowed by how she "worked magic" to transform the inside of the house into a stunning altar. When I walked downstairs and saw the place as I walked up the aisle, I felt so so so grateful to have her on our side.
The cost of the venue worked really well with our tight budget too, which was a massive relief. We hadn't expected to pay for a new venue with just three months to go in our budget, but it ended up being the perfect place.
The Matthew's House is a stunning venue and Sarah is the best coordinator a bride could hope to work with. Thank you to Sarah and her team, who made all our dreams come true after waiting a decade to get married!Sent on 07/24/2020
The Matthews House's reply:Emily, you are the sweetest! I am so happy to have been a part of your day. I wish you all of the best.

Sarah and her team were absolutely wonderful to work with! We changed venues at the last minute to accommodate for less people due to COVID. Sarah helped us plan the new event in a month. She was very responsive to all questions and met with us multiple times to make sure everyone was on the same page. Sarah and her team helped our wedding day go off perfectly. It was better than we could have imagined and they had a back up plan for any situation. To top it off they were very safe and had a great COVID procedure set up to keep vendors and guest safe!Sent on 09/29/2020
The Matthews House's reply:Rachael, thank you so much for your kind words! It was such a pleasure working with you both and we wish you the best!!

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!
