About The Meadows at Firefly Farm Preserve

The Meadows at Firefly Farm Preserve is an event venue located on a heritage farm in the heart of Raleigh, North Carolina. It’s a blend of Southern elegance, rolling meadows, and mature forests. It’s 105 acres of nature and beauty. The venue is a perfect natural setting and it can accomodate large weddings. Heron Hall sits among dense pine trees, making your wedding cozy, intimate, and peaceful. These qualities won’t be compromised with a big wedding at The Meadows.

The Meadows at Firefly Farm Preserve can accommodate a maximum capacity of 1,000 guests. Heron Hall is a seamless combination of both indoors and outdoors, perfect for a wedding reception. The venue has preserved the property’s history, and restored Heron Hall from the farm’s original warehouse and grain silo. The amazing oversize glass roll-up doors are ideal for gazing out over the 115 acre prairie preserve. Take pictures under the green roof trellis or on the inner courtyard. Guests will enjoy the evening under lofted ceilings or a covered arbor. The Aerie House is where the bride and the bridal party will prepare before you say “I do.” The Aerie House holds an open hearth, Venetian style glass chandeliers, kitchen, living-dining rooms, and a bridal suite fit for a queen.

    Perfect Change in Plans

    The Meadows was not our original wedding venue, but after having our wedding date postponed twice due to Covid, we decided to elope. We wanted to still be able to get married somewhere beautiful and affordable, and the Meadows was perfect for this. We were there for 2 hours, which was perfect for our elopement. Working with them was so easy and hassle-free. Would definitely recommend!

    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!
