History
In the late 1600s, Thomas Mial, Sr. purchased more than 400 acres of land which housed the original Walnut Hill Plantation. Over time, Walnut Hill Plantation 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.

    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.

    Beautiful Venue and Amazing Team

    I cannot speak highly enough about Walnut Hill, Amanda, and Jacqueline. To be honest, the beauty of the property speaks for itself and I was fortunate enough to secure the venue for my entire wedding weekend, which provided an awesome environment for me to socialize with not only my family, but also my bridesmaids. The venue has a spacious bridal suite, suitable for both hair and makeup as well as a groom's suite situated far enough away from the bridal suite that there was no fear of run-ins. I initially planned to host my wedding outside, but due to a chance of rain, we moved everything inside and it could not have been more beautiful. Amanda and Jacqueline made sure that all of my guests were comfortable and even provided a golf cart shuttle to transport guests from the parking lot to the venue, which was nice for our older guests. Throughout the reception, both of these ladies paid special attention to the bridal party as well as our guests and were so kind. If you want to get married at a beautiful venue with knock-out customer service, then I highly recommend reaching out to Walnut Hill. The experience was amazing and I will never forget it.
