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.Sent on 03/12/2021

Beautiful, responsive, and flexible-- the perfect venue!
The Parlour was truly the perfect place for our wedding; we were incredibly happy with how beautiful it was and the responsiveness/dedication of everyone we worked with! We chose it as our venue in 2019 for a June 2020 wedding. However, with the COVID pandemic and travel restrictions (we live out-of-state and were planning the wedding from afar), we had to reschedule for August. Jessica at The Parlour was incredibly understanding, flexible, and supportive of this change...we can't thank her and the rest of the venue team enough! Although the space is lovely in pictures, it's even more gorgeous in-person. The building has been wonderfully restored, the vintage furniture was charming, and the outdoor space is expansive and beautiful. You don't need a ton of decor because the space sort of "speaks for itself". Perhaps most importantly, we (and our guests) felt incredibly safe with all COVID-related protections: plenty of hand sanitizer, extra face masks, an enforced maximum number of guests, and adherence to social distancing guidelines and NC regulations. Thank you again for everything!Sent on 10/11/2020

Best venue that ever was
When my fiance and I toured The Parlour, we just instantly knew it was the one. It was the only venue we toured and we booked it the same day and never looked back, which is saying something because we weren’t even engaged yet. It is such a beautiful building and it has such beautiful grounds, so much so that we were actually able to save money by not having to purchase any decorations besides flowers. It is also helpful that they have a bunch of adorable rentals included . As someone who cares a lot about attention to detail, they really have thought of everything. So many of our wedding guests remarked at The Parlour’s beauty and uniqueness, and even though it poured rain, nobody seemed to care. The folks that work there couldn’t be nicer, especially the owner Yvette. They were all very helpful when it came to wedding planning, including recommending great vendors and answering whatever questions arose. The Parlour and its staff will always hold a very special place in our hearts.Sent on 05/10/2021
