    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!

    Wonderful rehearsal dinner at the NC Arboretum

    We held a rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding at the Arboretum. This turned out to be a very nice venue for our guests, all coming from out of town. The weather did not cooperate- we had significant rain this weekend, but our backup site via the rain plan worked beautifully. The staff were friendly and helpful, from planning through execution. We would definitely use the Arboretum again for a wedding or other event.
