A Picturesque Farm Wedding Experience

The Union Exchange is a gorgeous wedding venue and farm located in Monroe, NC. This stunning 100-year-old farm and event space is the brainchild of The Brown Family, who dreamed of having their own family business where they can create lifelong memories together in the great outdoors. With bold ambitions in one hand and a toolbox in the other, they worked together to restore the natural beauty of the land making it the perfect countryside setting to say "I do."

The Union Exchange is a rustic-style venue that expands over 54 acres of North Carolina farm land encompassing an indigenous pine tree forest and 3.5 acres of scenic ponds. Featuring an abundance of restored historic structures and with a capacity of 150 guests, you and your sweetheart are sure to find the perfect locale to bring your vision to life! Kickstart your dreamy wedding weekend with our onsite accommodations including two private houses and glamping cabins. Spend the morning getting ready in the stunning Homestead House while exploring the land and a host of amenities. Gather your loved ones for your picturesque ceremony on the sprawling event lawn with luminous fountain views or in the breathtakingly magical pine tree forest. Mingle with your guests for an entertaining post-ceremony cocktail hour at the open-air bar, Splinters, while enjoying your selection of local beer and wine. As the party atmosphere fills the air, you and your guests can retreat to The Auction Barn, the farm’s historic flagship structure combining vintage craftsmanship and elegance with high ceilings, cedar walls, and marbled concrete floors. Dance the night away under the twinkling bistro lights on the attached Carolina Pavilion while enjoying the beauty of your countryside celebration.

The Brown Family invites you to experience something different at The Union Exchange with their promise to do everything they can to make your day the absolute best it can be and the lifelong memory that you have dreamed of. With a variety of wedding packages, you have almost everything you need to make your special day spectacular, from classic event furniture, to chic vintage accent furniture, and a sound and lighting system. The venue also features a custom-made bar beer and wine bar customized to feature your favorite selection of classic craft beers and fine wines. The Browns are excited to share their land and create new memories with you and your family!

Always a bridesmaid never a bride...

Now that I have your attention! As someone who has attended and participated in over 15 weddings the past two years (no exaggeration) I feel confident in my judgement that The Union Exchange went above and beyond with all wedding expectations! Their space was beautiful, the staff was extremely accommodating. Even every detail from the outdoor fire place, the forest "cathedral", the onsite housing rentals, party barn, parking, pond, even the hay barrel bars made everything feel like a movie. The owner even drove the bride and bridal party around comfortably on their golf-cart to make every transition smooth and most certainly memorable. Being a bridesmaid I got to really nit pick all the details and I personally had zero complaints. I've already recommended the place to multiple other friends getting married and I'll be thrilled when one of them decide to get married here because I can't wait to go back!

Beautiful venue, amazing staff!!

Where do I even start? The Union Exchange should be your top choice for a wedding venue. Their property is stunning and provides breathtaking views. Not only is their property incredible, the staff is absolutely amazing. Kelly and team went above and beyond to make our day perfect. They answered our thousand questions and made sure we had everything we needed. They even drove us around the property on a golf cart to capture their property's best views for post wedding photos! Recommend you go see the venue yourself because it will not disappoint!

The Dream Venue

The Union Exchange is an absolute dream! It’s got the small town, family oriented, classic feel that was perfect for my micro wedding.
Every staff member I encountered were so polite, thoughtful and helpful! All of my questions were answered in a timely manner and staff continued to check in to make sure everything was going well.
The venue is spacious which provided me with multiple options for the ceremony of my choice and even more options for pictures after my ceremony. I couldn’t have asked for a better venue experience. 10/10 would recommend to anyone who is looking for a venue in the area.
