    This is the best place for a small wedding!!!

    I wanted to have a smaller wedding with just our closest relatives in attendance. However, I also wanted my wedding to feel grand and beautiful even though it was going to be intimate. This vendor is amazing and the grounds are the most picturesque for wedding photography! I cannot recommend them enough!

    Best Garden Elopement!

    My husband and I worked with Elaina - who was great! - to coordinate our intimate ceremony at the NC Arboretum. We got the elopement package which made everything super simple - flowers, cake, officiant, and photographer were all included. We got married in the Heritage Garden which was the perfect spot for a Spring elopement. The Arboretum is also pet friendly which allowed us to have our dog there which was so special! We highly recommend this located for a wedding ceremony or reception.

    Dreamy, Garden Wedding Venue

    We are wedding planners and love working at The NC Arboretum. For one, the venue is absolutely stunning and gives you so many amazing photo ops! Additionally, Jessie was particularly lovely to work with. She was very responsive and attentive. She was around throughout the night and helped to ensure everything was handled on the venue's end. We can wait to work there again!
