Facilities and Capacity
This 10,000 square foot space offers the perfect combination of country and elegance. For your ceremony, you can use The Pavilion’s rear garden, which provides a picturesque setting by saying “I do” beneath the elegant pergola. You have the opportunity to get ready in their Bride’s Retreat, which is a 700 square foot loft that can accommodate you and your attendants. They also offer a Groom’s Room. Guests can enter through large, wooden double doors to the climate controlled reception area called The Pavilion. They are greeted with the glow of four shining chandeliers. At the far end, there is a 34 foot wood-burning fireplace made of Tennessee field stone. It is topped with a wooden mantel--a beam from the 1800’s that has been reclaimed from the original home that once stood on the property. The red barn stretches to a 34 foot gambrel roof. This space is 60 by 75 feet and can accommodate 50 to 275 guests along with room for dancing. Behind The Pavilion, guests can mingle during cocktail hour on the patio, complete with a gas fire pit and wall for seating. This space is situated to one side of the 112 acre property and overlooks rolling pastures and a grove of North Carolina’s tall pine trees. It provides a serene country backdrop on your wedding day.

Best Wedding Venue in Raleigh!
Perfect Fusion Wedding
The venue itself is beautifully enclosed by trees so it feels private but spacious. They have a fantastic bridal suite and also have plenty of bathrooms for guests. The main space in the hall is filled with windows that allowed the light in so perfectly during our first dance. There are also large chandeliers and a stone fireplace that make the space feel grand.
We can’t recommend this location highly enough! Thanks, Marti.
