What can we say about The Meadows at Firefly Farms besides it was absolutely perfect and exceeded every expectation we had! Anna and Hannah were a pleasure to work with and made our special day one to remember. Getting married is a stressful venture; let’s not kid ourselves.Sent on 10/19/2018
The Meadows is a one of a kind, unique, gorgeous setting. You could not ask for a more beautiful backdrop and everyone we worked with there was attentive and eager to help make our wedding everything we desired.
The bride and groom’s houses are spectacularly furnished, the event areas are beyond gorgeous, and the Anna’s staff was in constant communication to ensure no stone was unturned during the planning stages. We cannot imagine a better experience and setting to be wed to one another, and would do it again if it weren’t a once in a lifetime experience! Go out and see for yourself what a wonderful environment Anna and her family have created, you will not be disappointed.

Getting married at The Meadows is the BEST experience! The space is unreal, both in how beautiful and unique it is, and in how much you get. There are two separate houses to get ready in, a ton of ceremony site options (including a particularly magical one in the woods that we used), and there is so much space for the reception that I was overwhelmed with how to incorporate all of the cool areas available to us. The design of the place is so funky and beautiful and is filled with amazing details, like a garden on the roof of the bar and a swanky bridal suite -- and because the owners are such creative people, they're constantly adding to the space. We ended up not even hiring a florist and just putting together very basic floral/candle decor ourselves because the space was so beautiful we didn't need to add much. It also comes with so much stuff that the only things you really need to rent are plates, flatware, and glasses. They have a ton of tables (including the beautiful wood ones in the photos), chairs, lounge furniture (couches, coffee tables, armchairs, etc.), plants, and accent pieces that you can use. Our guests were blown away by the place, often saying that it was the most amazing venue they'd ever seen.Sent on 10/04/2018
Beauty aside, the best thing about The Meadows is the people who run the place. Every single person we worked with is an absolute gem who made the planning experience so easy and fun. From our first FaceTime tour with Kelley to our last walk-through with Hannah, everyone at The Meadows was incredibly flexible, kind, creative, and responsive to us every step of the way. I would definitely recommend this to couples planning their wedding from afar -- we live in Boston and didn't even see the venue in person until 3 months before our wedding, and they really couldn't have made it easier for us. I could not imagine having a better planning experience, and am so so grateful that we found this place and these people. Thank you Team Meadows!!

Amazing venue!! Onsite accommodations for the bride and groom, and their parties! Beautifully renovated homes, and industrial yet chic feeling wedding venue and reception/bar area! Love everything about it!!
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!
