About The Pavilion at Carriage Farm

Let us help you make memories of a lifetime

The Pavilion at Carriage Farm, located in Raleigh NC, is a stunning venue for your wedding ceremony and wedding reception. Whether you dream of a small outdoor ceremony or an elegantly tented gala under the stars, you will find it at The Pavilion.

The Pavilion

Set your special occasion to spectacular scenery with contemporary comforts. The Pavilion at Carriage Farm’s 10,000-square-foot space combines the rustic beauty of countryside living with modern convenience, setting the scene for an event everyone will remember.

That scene begins when you open the large, wooden double doors to the open-air reception area. Guests are greeted with the glow of four dazzling chandeliers, the warm light bouncing off the North Carolina pine walls. At the far end, a stately stone wood-burning fireplace draws the eye, ready to lend light, warmth, and ambiance to your evening event. The 34-foot fireplace is made of Tennessee field stone. It’s topped with a wooden mantel, a beam from the 1800s, reclaimed from the original home that once stood on the property.

The red, barn-shaped Pavilion’s wood beams stretch to a 30-foot gambrel roof. The space is 60 by 75 feet and can accommodate 50 to 300 guests along with room for dancing. Breezes naturally float through the Pavilion in summer, and a glass enclosure is added for winter gatherings. The three-foot overhang provides secure protection against the elements should rain occur on your special day.

Guests will fall in love with the stunning reclaimed wood and antique sconces in the entryway, where you’ll find a space that can be used as anything from a cake room to a coat check. The temperature-controlled foyer also leads to elegantly designed restrooms, with oak ceilings and a specially poured floor with a unique design.

Behind The Pavilion, guests can mingle during cocktail hour on the flagstone patio, complete with a gas fire pit and wall for seating or extra candles.

The Pavilion is situated to one side of the 112-acre property and overlooks rolling pastures and a grove of North Carolina’s tall pine trees. White blooms dot the property, including crepe myrtles and roses. The serene country backdrop has become a photographer favorite.

The Pavilion’s private driveway ends in a circle for easy entry, and a nearby parking area can accommodate your entire party.

The kitchen is a caterer’s dream, with an restaurant-sized refrigerator and several stainless steel countertops, plus multiple hand washing sinks.

The Bride’s Retreat

The spacious bride’s retreat is located upstairs, reached by an open, curving wooden staircase. The 900-square-foot loft can accommodate the bride and her attendants, with a makeup area, open space, and plenty of seating. The casually elegant style is a relaxing environment for pre-ceremony or wedding reception preparations. The dressing area with full-length mirror and ensuite restrooms are the perfect hideout as you prepare for the big day.  

The Groom’s Room

Downstairs, the groomsmen have a large, private den in which to congregate before the wedding. The western-themed hideout features a large TV and seating, plus a giant closet for item and clothing storage. Here the groom and his party can relax with access to a wet bar.

Ceremony Sites

The Pavilion’s rear garden provides a picturesque setting for your wedding ceremony. The flat landscaping makes it easy to line chairs for all guests and set the scene with a lovely aisle. Say “I do” beneath an elegant pergola elevated on a hard surface so your guests can better view your beautiful commitment. 

The surrounding pines, red Pavilion, and fire create a lasting impression of your momentous occasion.

If you prefer, set your vows against the backdrop of the nearby pond, where you will often catch a glimpse of stately herons striding through the water. This natural, lush landscape has created stunning photographs and memories alike.

We wanted a unique venue that wasn't in a banquet hall or too outdoor country and the Pavilion at Carriage Farm was perfect! It's on a horse farm and just simple southern elegance. Our ceremony was behind the Manor or you can have it under the tree in front of the pond. We got married 5/28 so it was hot during the ceremony in the sun, but the Pavilion has fans and the lobby area is air conditioned. We booked this venue when the Pavilion was just a big patch of dirt, so it was exciting to watch them build it. They provide tables and chairs: 25-60" rounds, 2-48" rounds, 5-6' longs, 10 cocktails, 2 sets of 200 chairs. We only had to rent bar tables and brought our own alcohol (huge money saver). You have to choose from a list of caterers, and while we would have liked more options, we hired Rocky Top and they were delicious. They provide shuttle carts between sites, I think driven by their kids, which is really cute. You can also walk, but it's not easy in heels. The guys got ready in the Pavilion groom room, and my bridal party got ready in the Manor, which is stunning! The new bridal suite wasn't ready for our wedding (which we knew when we booked), but I bet it's gorgeous. The reception area is open on the sides, so it feels like you're outside. This is great for kids because they can run and have fun, and you'll get amazing photos at sunset. They have chandeliers, a huge stone fireplace, and a stone patio (perfect for cocktail hour), so you don't need to decorate much. Alex handled reservations and after we booked, all communication was with the owner. Marti is such a sweet lady and so helpful and flexible. We didn't use the venue for our rehearsal, so she gave us 2 extra hours for setup. We DIY'ed a ton of stuff, including linen, decor, flowers, instruments, etc., so those extra hours were life-saving! The owners really seem like sweet, caring people. This venue is on their home property so a lot of care and attention is given to make sure the venue is beautiful.

Marti Leone was my saving grace. If we had a venue to choose again without any doubt I would get married at her new Pavillion again. She went out of her way to help beyond what any other venue would have done. Her assistant Bobbie was absolutely an Angel in prepping at the Manor the morning of our wedding, she too calmed me and was absolutely amazing throughout the entire day. I loved my wedding am so happy we chose The Manor at Carriage Farm. Thanks again for EVERYTHING!
