Downtown Cary, charming and flexible venue space. Plenty of parking and wonderful catering kitchen makes the Matthews House a perfect fit! They have a built-in patio bar for your cocktail hour!
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!
