    Beautiful venue. I loved this venue because the owner built this venue with a bride in mind. She invested a lot in the decorating so that a lot of extra decorations would not need to do a whole lot.

    Brakefield hosted our wedding on Friday September 14, during the scare of Hurricane Florence. In spite of all of the worry about weather leading up to the day, I can say that everything was AMAZING! During our wedding venue search, Brakefield was actually the place we visited last. As soon as I walked through the door, I fell in love! It literally looks like a small castle! I cannot say enough about the owner Carol and venue manager Kelly. Their professionalism is what really sold me. They happily answered any questions we had leading up to the day and made the entire process as smooth as possible. I would gladly refer them to any person planning an event in the Rock Hill/Charlotte area.

    Hi Shantal, We are so, so glad that Florence calmed considerably before your day. I wish we could have been outdoors for your ceremony but, you may have blown away!. At least the rain held off. Wishing you all the best and thank so much for letting us host your day. Super nice review and it is greatly appreciated!! Take Care! Sincerely, Carol and Kelly

    Brakefield at Riverwalk was an incredible venue for our wedding. The beauty of the surrounding scenery with the river in the background made all of our pictures look incredible without any effort. The decorations inside were elegant and allowed us to spend less time focusing on how to decorate our venue and instead focus on more important matters. The venue itself was built specifically for weddings, so the entire layout works wonderfully. Finally, Carol (the owner) was a treat to work with - completely professional and prompt with everything, helping remove a lot of stress as we approached our wedding date. The in house coordinator, Kelly, was everything we could have hoped for and more in a coordinator - friendly, professional, and yet not afraid to keep other vendors (and guests!) in line so that everything went smoothly. We hesitated a bit when deciding between several venues and could not be happier we chose Brakefield at Riverwalk.

    Hi Kelly and Camille, We hope married life is going great! This is certainly a rave review. Nothing better than getting it right and making our clients happy! Such a great move hiring Kelly to coordinate for you. She knows her stuff! I appreciate the nice things you said about me as well. It is always a pleasure to work with such nice people as you and your guests were. Wishing you a bright, prosperous future. Take good care! Sincerely, Carol

    Carol and Kelly at Brakefield were professional and responsive with any questions or concerns. My husband and I were married here May 6, 2018 and could not ask for anything more beautiful and perfect. They addressed all needs we had and were there to help but were not overwhelming or in the way. To be honest the venue cost was way more than we wanted to spend but at the end of the day it was everything we wanted and we got so many compliments on the space and what did with it. I would recommend this venue if you are looking for a charming elegant place overlooking the peaceful Catawba river.

    My fiancé and I fell in love with this venue as soon as we saw it! We had looked around at numerous other venues, but nothing compared to this one in price or beauty. It is absolutely stunning!! The owner Carol designed a beautiful venue, and you need very little if any decor. Both Carol & Kelly were awesome to work with. Very responsive & accommodating. It is tucked away in a beautiful area next to the river with a great view. We would totally recommend this venue!

    Carol designed a stunning venue! Between the venue itself and the beautiful views it is the perfect location for any event. My fiance and I choose Brakefield for our wedding venue and we couldn't have been happier! Carol and Kelly are both wonderful people to work with! If you need any information they will be more than happy to get it for you. Any time I had to contact them they were quick to respond with the information I needed if not more. The venue speaks for itself, it is absolutely beautiful on the inside and out. We had our ceremony outside and the views were phenomenal and our reception inside. The venue on the inside doesn't even need decor, it's just beautiful as it is. I can't say enough good things about this venue, it's definitely worth a look you won't be disappointed!

Our wedding was a couple weeks ago and guests are still talking about it! It is such a great location for an affordable price and they work with you!

    Mrs. Carol and her team are AMAZING - After my previous venue went out of business 3 weeks before the wedding I went on a crazy search to find a location that felt like it represented me. After several drive bys looking in windows at different locations from Charlotte to Gastonia I found and email The Brakefield. Mrs. Carol email right back and provided me with empathy and sympathy for my situation - THE ONLY vendor that really listen to me. I walked around her venue and realized that what had happen to me was supposed to happen - Mrs Carol's location is beautiful, breath taking for pictures and the energy I felt let me know this was the place for me.

    My daughter and I looked at 5 venues and chose Brakefield. Her wedding was June 17, 2016. We received a better rate as we booked a Friday rather than Saturday. Our guests have not stopped complimenting the venue and nothing could have made us happier than how everything turned out. It is such a beautiful place. It's immaculate, very well manicured landscaping, very elegant. Excellent wedding coordinator on site. We could not have done it without her. She had everything very well planned and timed, without it feeling like it was scheduled. The venue is so well decorated already that it was not a big task to add our personal touch to make it a beautiful wedding. Also, the freedom and flexibility to choose our vendors was really important as well. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!

    The staff here are amazing! The day of my wedding it decided to downpour. I had my heart set on having the ceremony outside and wanted to wait to see if the rain would subside before the start of the ceremony. The staff waited until the last possible minute to set up chairs to see if the rain would stop. It didn't and we ended up having the ceremony on the covered patio. I really appreciate their willingness to work with me to help ease the stress of the wedding day.

    If you're looking for a wedding venue, stop searching! Brakefield at Riverwalk is an excellent choice. It is picturesque and is gorgeous on the inside and out. The staff are easy to work with, very flexible, and makes you feel at home. My fiance and I visited other venues for our wedding, and we knew that we wouldn't be satisfied until we toured Brakefield. One tour is all that it took for us to make the decision. Brakefield at Riverwalk exceeded all of our expectations for our perfect wedding day!

    Brakefield at Riverwalk is a hidden gem, and I couldn’t have imagined having our wedding anywhere else! I wanted to find a place that was basically a one stop shop but still gave me the freedom to choose my caterer, planner, etc. Our ceremony took place outside with a gorgeous back drop of the river and greenery, and the reception was inside. Carol takes great pride in this venue, which is evident in every single detail from the beautiful chiavari chairs to the landscaping. So many of our wedding guests are still RAVING about our beautiful venue! Carol and Kelly were so pleasant and accommodating every step of the way too. Brakefield at Riverwalk is the perfect place to have your dream wedding!

    This venue made a breathtaking backdrop for our late September wedding. It was magical right on the river with the beautiful trees and all the soft lighting combined with the rich colors of the interior ballroom. We were able to bring in our own unique personal decor to make it "ours" but really, it was just enhanced by the canvas at the venue. Carol and Kelly were both lovely to deal with and very direct and professional. Couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate one of our lives most important days!

    I am so glad we chose Brakefield at Riverwalk as our wedding venue. After looking at 20+ venues in North Carolina, I'm so grateful that we took the short drive to check out Brakefield. From the moment we walked on the property we knew it was where we would get married. Carol and Kelly were great to work with. They were both readily available throughout the entire process and always responded quickly. The venue has everything you could ever need. Great view, beautifully decorated, bridal party suites and much more. Wedding guests are still gushing about our wedding, they all loved the venue. I would highly recommend Brakefield at Riverwalk.

    When my husband and I first saw Brakefield when we were looking for a venue to have our wedding, we absolutely knew this was the perfect place. It is gorgeous on the inside and gave me a feeling of a castle. We were married outside overlooking the river and the peaceful sound of the river was amazing. Our guests have been commenting for weeks how beautiful this venue is. Carol, the owner, was a joy to work with and always quickly responded to any questions we had. We are thrilled that we found Brakefield to have our wedding and reception at.

    My wedding experience was amazing! Kelly was such a pleasure to work with. She helped make sure my wedding went off without a hitch!

    Our wedding was February 15th, 2014 and that was just after that huge snowstorm. Kelly made sure that all of my guests could enjoy my outdoor wedding and she did so by literally melting the snow off the ground.

    I am forever grateful for The Brakefield at Riverwalk for helping make sure my day was as gorgeous as it was in my dreams.
