    A beautiful venue for any occasion!

    From the first time we met Martha and saw the Rand-Bryan House to the final day, we were impressed! The house and grounds are lovely and very private and perfect for the size of group we planned for our 50th anniversary. Martha was very personable and accomodating for our questions and needs and was present for the six hours of our celebration, in case a need arose. She also recommended our wonderful caterer, who we were thrilled with. We would definitely use the Rand-Bryan House for an event in the future---maybe a granddaughter??

    Wonderful Experience

    Martha Liles was very helpful in helping set up for my daughters wedding. I planned it myself with her help and our photographer. They are very flexible in the hours that you need for rehearsal, photos, set-up, wedding and the clean up. It was very beautiful for the ceremony and they were very accommodating with my needs. I highly recommend the Rand Bryan House.

    Amazing!!!

    If your looking for venues stop...this is where you need to go!!! Very responsive, helpful, and friendly staff!! The owner is very knowledgable about set up and the best ways to do things to make your wedding look wonderful! The place itself is gorgeous! I could not have been happier! We did our wedding at the end of November and the Christmas tree, decorations, and lights were up and it was so beautiful!!

    The venue is beautiful, inside and out. The front porch was a cozy place to chat with friends and have cocktails. It was an amazing experience, a dream come true!

    I grew up in California, so I was excited to have my wedding in a traditional southern setting. The venue is gorgeous! Scenic landscapes, gorgeous indoor event space, and beautiful wrap-around porch. I always wanted my wedding in a naturally beautiful place, and this was it! Martha was a joy to work with. So helpful! She has wonderful suggestions about how to execute your wedding dreams. It stormed the day of my wedding leaving the grass soaked. We decided to move the outdoor ceremony inside. It was still absolutely gorgeous and everyone was comfortable, cool and dry! The venue is a 15 minute drive from downtown Raleigh. Convenient for an afterparty! We had a beautiful day filled with love, joy, and fun. Thank you!

    The Rand-Bryan was perfect for our wedding/reception. The house is beautiful and spacious, and the property is pristine. The owner, Martha, was so easy to work with. She made us feel like family and was there for us every step of the way during logistics planning.
    Compared to the other venues we visited, this was the most beautiful and most affordable option in the area. We are absolutely thrilled with the way everything looked on our big day.
    Do your homework and include this as one of your options. You'll see why we chose the Rand-Bryan.

    Martha at Rand Bryan House was unbelievably helpful with our wedding! From the minute we met with her the first time until the wedding was over, everything was organized! Martha recommended wonderful vendors to work with in terms of bartender, caterer and events rentals and everyone was also equally wonderful. Our guests commented over and over on how great the reception venue was and I could NOT have asked for a more perfect day!

    Martha has a stunning venue and made our wedding day stress free. She helped coordinate vendors the day of our wedding and was very responsive and helpful leading up to our wedding day. You won't find another venue like this in the Raleigh area - I highly recommend using the Rand-Bryan House for any special occasion.

    This venue gave us the perfect atmosphere for our intimate wedding. We loved the old feel of the house mixed with elegant decor, and the spacious and breathtaking grounds.

    More than just the venue, the owner, Martha, was endlessly patient and accommodating. Her communication was prompt and thorough, and she brought her industry expertise to the table to help us to make the best logistic and vendors decisions for our guests.

    Thank you for hosting our beautiful night!

    The Rand Bryan house was the perfect choice for our wedding! Martha (the owner) is so friendly and professional, and adds a personal touch to the venue as it was her childhood home. She took a genuine interest in our plans and details, and it is clear that she enjoys all the details that each person brings to every event at her venue. The house is beautiful and meticulously kept indoors and out. Our day turned out to be cold, but there was no problem switching our plans and holding both the ceremony and reception inside. The sunroom was gorgeous even on a cloudy day, and provided wonderful light for photographs. We could not have been more pleased!

    I had a beautiful wedding here last weekend, and Martha is the best to work with! She is very lenient with letting you have any type of wedding you would like, the options are limitless! The venue is beautiful, and there are so many spots you can party- in the beautiful sun room, the covered, walk around porch, in a huge field, or a secluded garden ceremony. I wanted to do our ceremony in the front yard garden but it rained and having to have it inside was still gorgeous! And it is so nice to have a plan B that is almost as nice as plan A!
    As far as working with Martha, she will let you choose your own caterer, florist, etc... many places require you to use specific vendors- not here! However she will provide you a list of vendors she recommends if you would like.
    Not only is the location gorgeous, but the best part about it is that we were aloud to have our dog there! That meant a lot to us, and was actually the nail in the coffin when it came to choosing a venue (although I already had my mind made up when I asked!) Our dog is part of the family, and we are so happy to finally find a venue where she was welcome.
    I highly recommend this venue and working with Martha is wonderful!

    First, Martha is GREAT. Our event was a rehearsal dinner ~ 50 guests. Great venue with indoor and outdoor space. Indoor space included a private sitting room where the bride and groom presented gifts to wedding party, a large foyer and entry, and ball room which easily sat 50 with additional ~1,000 sq. ft. of dance area. Buffet (cater) was set in a large room that adjoined the outdoor decks AND ball room! Now to the outside!!! Wrap around porch and shaded lawns allowed guests to spread out (we had GREAT weather). Rocking chairs included!! Parking is extensive and "formal" look in front of house lawns as you drive up. All catering vehicles park behind house so pictures are very nice. One more note about Martha! She recommended Caffe' Luna as the caterer. Great choice and they do many functions at the property and thus know the set up. We were thrilled!!

    We really enjoyed working with these parents of the groom as they planned a delightful rehearsal dinner. Thanks for the feedback and we're glad it turned out like you were hoping! Always good to have Caffe Luna "in the house".

    We had our wedding at the Rand-Bryan house this year. The main thing that sold us on the house other than its beauty was Martha. Martha worked with us and gave great advice. She allowed us to see the house a couple of times to see how we wanted things set up. She even came to the rehearsal to see if we needed anything. She also gave a helping hand with out hesitation. If I could do it all over again, I would do the Rand-Bryan house again! The house is beautiful, simple, with southern charm!

    Martha was wonderful to work with, the venue was gorgeous, and it was very well priced. There are indoor and outdoor areas that are perfect for the reception or ceremony. The venue is on acres of private farmland that are quiet and peaceful. I couldn't have asked for anything more. My only recommendation is that you have the wedding ceremony outside if your party is much more than 80 people. The Rand Bryan is the perfect location for a country/rustic wedding of your dreams!

    This was such a beautiful venue! I am very glad I had the opportunity to have my wedding ceremony and reception in a place that truly values their customers. I wanted something with both a beautiful scenery inside and outside, and this was PERFECT! The staff was always very flexible and willing to meet at any point during the whole planning process. Great experience and no complaints! It was well worth all that we invested in the end!

    The Rand-Bryan House was the perfect venue for my fiancé & I. Martha was so easy to work with, she was very reassuring about all my fears, she never got frustrated with all of my questions, she made suggestions that were crucial to our day, and she was so helpful throughout the rehearsal, ceremony, and reception!

    The inside of the Rand-Bryan House is simple but gorgeous which is what we loved about it. We really didn't need much decoration at all for the ceremony! We used the field out back for the reception tent and it was beautiful! The landscaping around the Rand-Bryan House is absolutely gorgeous (a photographers dream!) there are seemingly endless options for ceremony/reception sites and photos!

    We had the perfect wedding and The Rand-Bryan House was the perfect venue! Thank you so much Martha for everything!

    The Rand-Bryan House was the perfect location for my June dream wedding. The natural landscape provided a beautiful back-drop for an outdoor wedding. We had a vintage-themed wedding with colors of ivory, sage green, and plum. The large windows of the house created a romantic and open atmosphere for an indoor reception. The colors and curtains inside of the house matched perfectly with our decorations and were neutral enough that they would complement any color scheme. Martha was extremely helpful with initial planning, questions along the way via text and e-mail, last-minute details with vendors, and our final needs to see the house before the big day. It was overall an incredible experience, and the pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous so we can remember it for years to come!

    The Rand-Bryan House and property are absolutely beautiful! We had our ceremony outside under a tent (rain was threatening), cocktail hour in the garden and on the porch, and reception inside. The windows allowed all the lush greenery to actually become part of our decor and it matched perfectly! The house is perfect. Martha was very helpful and accommodating.
