History
In the late 1600s, Thomas Mial, Sr. purchased more than 400 acres of land which housed the original Walnut Hill. Over time, Walnut Hill grew to be more than 2,000 acres and one of the largest agricultural operations in Wake and Johnson Counties. The original house eventually burned down in 1973, but in the late 1980s, one of Thomas Mial's direct descendants built a replica of the original home.

Location
This historic wedding venue is located only 20 minutes from downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. Because of its convenient location, couples and their guests can enjoy a nice getaway at Walnut Hill while not being too far away from the hustle and bustle of downtown.

    Amanda was amazing to work with. We had some issues the day before that were out of everyone's control and Amanda was amazingly flexible and helped us out! The Venue is GORGEOUS and our pictures turned out amazing because of it. They really made our wedding day amazing and we cannot thank them enough! Highly recommend to anyone looking to get married in the triangle area!

    Dream Wedding at Walnut Hill!

    Walnut Hill is a spectacular venue! Great views with each of its on-site locations. For me, some of the wedding planning stress was alleviated because of how beautiful this venue is. Since most of our guests were from other states and countries, this venue is a great representation of the beauty of North Carolina. The varied backgrounds made for stunning photos, as someone who loves pictures, I am beyond pleased with how they turned out!

    Access to the farmhouse made getting ready on-site stress-free! My bridal party was able to start the day with an on-site yoga session, and begin into hair and makeup, and the access to the kitchen allowed ease for food and drinks!
    The groom and his men throughly enjoyed getting ready in their own quarters, air conditioned, with access to the kitchen as well.

    The Barn Pavilion was perfect spot for dinner and a night of dancing. We ended up having almost 150 guests show up, and there was plenty of room for everyone to comfortably eat and then dance the night away. The porch, courtyard, and gazebo on the lake were great locations for guests to catch some air and enjoy the calm while the Barn kept the high energy dance party- perfect location for all types of guests!

    Amanda is a true delight to work with! She is responsive, has a responsible team, and her knowledge with event planning along with Walnut Hill’s layout was so helpful with setting up our wedding.

    Choosing Walnut Hill for our special day was the best choice, we are so pleased with the cherished memories.
