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!
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!!

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!
