    A dream day come true

    Wow! There is no better venue than the Umstead for a wedding in the Triangle, or probably anywhere for that matter. The venue itself is stunning. The food was incredible, our guests are still raving about it. The staff has incredible attention to detail and service. And most importantly, the venue coordinator, Kayla, is not only incredibly professional, easy to work with, but also the coolest. She made sure every concern we had was heard and handled, and went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. 10/10. We can't wait to celebrate many anniversaries here in the future!
