Beyond my expectations
We received so many comments from people that it was the most beautiful wedding that they had ever attended. A large amount of credit goes to Aimee and Yvette for creating a venue with such elegance, class, and history all wrapped up in one very nice package. The venue by itself offers so much beauty that it doesn’t take many floral arrangements and other decorations to deliver a magical day.Sent on 10/28/2019
I was also highly impressed with Aimee and Yvette’s attention to detail and desire to ensure that our day was everything we wanted. Every time we met with them, you could tell they were just invested as we were. They go above and beyond to make sure that they help bring your vision to life.
I am so thankful we chose The Parlour at the Manns Chapel for our wedding day! It was such a beautiful day!

Incredible Wedding Venue
The Parlour is the most charming place in Chapel Hill! It is romantic, elegant, peaceful, and warm all at the same time. It was incredible being able to have the ceremony and reception at the same location - and the rain plan (which we didn't need) was so easy, as the outside courtyard is very easy to tent. The staff were so accommodating to help creating the best day I've ever had!Sent on 07/27/2019
The Parlour at Manns Chapel's reply:Yay!!!!! So honored to be a part of your day. Your creativity was such a perfect match:))) Wishing you the absolute best and hope to see you soon.
