    Absolutely perfect venue

    Getting married at The Meadows was hands down the best decision we could have made! First, the venue itself is absolutely beautiful. It is a hidden gem tucked away off the main road. The nature and privacy makes you forget you're still so conveniently located to all the attractions of the triangle. Second, the team's emphasis on sustainability was a breath of fresh air in the wedding industry. The venue comes with a beautiful and eclectic selection of furniture and decorations that prevents extra waste and consumerism. Lastly, Hannah and the team were all incredibly easy to work with. They were professional, attentive and went above and beyond to accommodate our needs from the first tour all the way to the end of our wedding.

    So many options, great people to work with, beautiful grounds!

    Where can I start? The Meadows was perfect for my husband, Joe, and I. We were having a hard time deciding where to book, and once we met Anna, Kelly and Hannah, we felt so sure in our decision. It was like talking to old friends. We were the first wedding to include dogs in the ceremony and on the grounds, and Anna was super open to it! We have 4 small Jack Russells, and they can be a handful! But Anna worked with us so we could have piece of mind with having them there. There are so many options when it comes to this venue, for ceremony or reception. We wanted super bohemian vibe, the ability to have live music and yard games, and a mostly outdoor event space. The Meadows offered just that. We really loved how down-to-earth everyone was and how welcoming and supportive they were of our wedding. No request was too much. Their team is just so sweet and accommodating, and not to mention the grounds and houses on the property are beyond beautiful. I felt very lucky to have found this gem. I would not hesitate to have another event at The Meadows in the future. I'm literally just thinking of random events so we can do just that... doggie birthday party, anyone? :) Thank you guys for such a great planning process and event. We truly enjoyed working with you.

    Where do I start? The Meadows is an amazing venue with so much to offer. We love planning weddings here and the owners are a dream to work with. We feel a sense of peace the moment we drive on site and it only gets better from there - over 100 acres, 4 ceremony/reception sites, furniture, outdoor patio space, indoor/outdoor bar, 2 beautiful houses for the bridal party and family, and so much more. This team and venue provides a professional and unique experience to all who visit and we are thankful to work with them. We could go on forever, but long story short, we are huge fans and supporters!

  • Kivus & Camera Wedding Photographers

    The Meadows is such a fun venue and a photographer's dream! Everywhere you look on the property there's a beautiful photo to be made. The main house has wonderful light for the bride to get ready, the groom's house has awesome color, and the main reception area is one of the most unique looking spaces around. Then there are the grounds. The "meadows" themselves are GORGEOUS whether they're green, golden, or covered in snow. Of course, how pretty the venue is wouldn't really matter if weren't managed well, but the team at The Meadows is AMAZING. They are all so kind and go out of their way to make sure everyone is having a great time. I LOVE photographing here!! Give me more Meadows at Firefly Farm weddings please!!

  • All Around Raleigh DJ Company Wedding DJs

    The Meadows at Firefly Farm Preserve is a stunning and unique wedding venue! You'll never find the combination of things that they have onsite from the vast expanse of land (over 100 acres) located just outside of downtown Raleigh to a house just for the bride's entourage and a house just for the groom's party and then two wedding building in addition to those. Add in lots of unique styling, tons of amazing photo spots and great help from the staff and you have a venue that is going to be a hot spot for local clients for years to come!
