LOVE BIG, CELEBRATE SMALL. Located in beautiful Chapel Hill, NC, The Parlour is an intimate wedding venue in the sweetest vintage chapel. The Parlour is the only venue created for the refined, intimate event experience. If you don't believe in obligatory invites, and you value knowing everyone at the table- we're with you. If you prefer styled, more creative details over an "audience," then celebrate small with us at The Parlour, where "small" means well-curated, discerning, and the mark of meaningfulness.

With a reimagined chapel, Euro-inspired courtyard, and beautifully landscaped grounds, this dream setting capacity is 100 guests or less. The thoughtful guest list allows you to focus on a highly put-together experience, filling your day with personal touches that leave you and your guests feeling valued and inspired. If this sounds like the perfect way to begin your new life together, we are so glad you're here.

Facilities and Capacity

Here, couples and their loved ones will find an eclectic combination of both old and new elements. The beautifully renovated chapel boasts original pine floors, stained glass windows, sophisticated chandeliers, and a kitchen prep area. You can decorate the majestic, historic doorway display area with floral garland or other decor to best suit your wedding vision. In addition, the original Manns Chapel sign hangs on the wall, adding a touch of nostalgia to your event. Stunning dressing suites provide the couple and their wedding party with a comfortable place to get ready before the festivities begin. An array of vintage pieces are at your disposal to add further charm to the atmosphere of your wedding day. Couples may also choose to hold their event outside, where a picturesque European-inspired courtyard awaits. Market lights and a blooming landscape create a romantic ambiance that both you and your guests will remember fondly for years to come.

    Best Day Ever!

    Our wedding was just two weeks ago at the Parlour at Mann's Chapel and I could not be a happier bride! We worked with Jessica who was so professional and flexible with our planning and vendor team. The details at this venue make it truly charming. We loved every bit of our experience and would highly recommend to anyone looking for an intimate wedding experience.

    What a magical moment!

    The Parlour at Mann's Chapel is the venue that couples dream about. Every detail of the stained glass windows to the perfectly landscaped garden is breathtaking. Beyond aesthetics, the Parlour family made me feel at ease throughout the planning process but particularly the day of. We chose many of our vendors from the venue's list of professionals and have nothing but wonderful things to say about the collaboration and communication between them all. Our guests traveled from all over the country to join us in sharing our vows and were immensely impressed with the entire experience that the staff at Mann's chapel orchestrated on our behalf.

    The Parlour at Manns Chapel's reply:

    Tayler, you and Brandon were a joy to host! Your love, and your sweet guests, graced our Chapel in the way a wedding should. It was our pleasure to work with you to bring your day to fruition! Thank you for starting your journey with The Parlour, we wish you all the best that love brings, now and forever!
