I don't even know where to start with writing this review because there are so many good things to say about this venue! I came across Rose Hill Plantation on this website when searching for venues after getting engaged. Rose Hill was one of the first venues that we checked out and we immediately fell in love with this place! The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and well maintained and the plantation house and reception hall are beautiful as well. When we visited this venue, they were already booked for Saturdays a year in advance but we loved it so much we decided to get married on a Friday and we wouldn't have changed a thing about it. Nicole was such a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process! She was always quick to respond to my (many) emails and questions and was so helpful! From the beginning stages of planning to the day of, she was so sweet and friendly and willing to do anything she could do to help. We got married at the gazebo and were battling chances of rain but Nicole knew that our hearts were set on having our ceremony outside so she ensured us that they would do whatever they could to accommodate our guests by wiping down chairs at the last minute or moving our ceremony indoors if needed. Luckily, the rain held off until right when our ceremony ended. All of our guests were so impressed with the service, food, and the beauty of this venue! Many of our friends have gotten married recently or are getting married soon and we have heard so many complaints about the service of other places, surprise costs after signing a contract, and not being able to easily get in contact with staff. We quickly realized that we were so fortunate that we did not face any issues during our wedding planning process.. Rose Hill is the best of the best and definitely worth every penny! :)
Rose Hill was a beautiful place to get married at. They answered all our questions in a timely manner and worked hard to meet everything we wanted. Rose Hill and their staff helped make our wedding day the best day ever! I highly recommend Rose Hill to anyone!!
Thank you Jena! You and your mom Kim were such a joy to work with! It was a stunning wedding for such a sweet couple! Best Wishes to you and Reid!
Seriously can not say enough great things about Rose Hill Plantation. It was everything I would expect my wedding venue to be and more. From the majestic lake side gazebo to the grand ballroom with amazing food, everything made my wedding the royal wedding I always dreamed it would be.
Oh how we loved every detail of your wedding! Definitely a Royal Wedding for two of the sweetest people! Thank for letting Rose Hill be a part of your day! Best Wishes to you and Josh!
Everything was beautiful! Love the house. Nicole was great helped me every step of the way!
The pleasure was all ours! Best wishes to you and Jason!
I wouldn't have wanted to get married anywhere else! Guests still are talking about how beautiful the venue was!
We were honored to be a part of your day! Thanks so much for the review Destiney! Best Wishes to you and Bradley!
I cannot thank Rose Hill enough for making our dream wedding come true! The venue, staff, food, decor, EVERYTHING was perfect! I wouldn't have changed a thing, even the rain on our day. Nicole and Walter were so helpful and patient through the process. They answered all of our questions, were very accommodating and made sure everything went according to plan. On the day of our wedding, I knew there wasn't anything we needed to worry about and I am truly thankful for that.
Thank you again to everyone! I wish there were reasons for us to come back. We are already talking about having a big party for our 5-year anniversary in the Smoke House just so we can be there again!
You were such a joy to work with! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your day! We would LOVE for you to come back for a 5 year anniversary party. Best Wishes to you and Chris!
I would not have wanted to have my wedding reception anywhere else!!! Rose Hill Plantation is a dream- from Nicole (the sales manager), to their chef, to their accommodations and shooting range on the property- there is no place like Rose Hill! I booked Rose Hill for my wedding reception on 11/29/16 for our wedding date of 12/9/17. A few months later I provided Nicole with a guest estimation, and meal choice. We chose the plated meal option and I HIGHLY recommend going this route vs buffet. I received so many compliments on the food from my guests that I lost track. We chose the fillet mignon, brick pressed chicken, and the vegetable napoleon. They were so flexible as I wanted sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes with the fillet, as my family grows sweet potatoes and it is the top grown crop in the county. Nicole was very responsive through all my many emails and last minute questions. She provided so many great ideas and am so grateful we had her to work with! After my final guest count was in (1 week prior to the event) I knew we could eliminate a table. Nicole suggested we incorporate an escort table for my guests with the extra space and I love that we did! That is just one example of a suggestion Nicole made that we loved!
Getting ready in the Manor House was also a huge part of our wedding day. The women got ready upstairs (me and my sister spent the night there the night prior) and the men got ready downstairs in the gentleman's room, complete with pool table, poker, and plenty of mounted game. It was the perfect backdrop for all our photos. We also had our first look on the front porch of the Manor House. So magical!
I loved spending my whole wedding day at Rose Hill and recommend you do the same!! See a few pictures from our special day!
Bethany, the pleasure was truly all ours! You were such a joy to work with and your wedding day was absolutely stunning. Best Wishes to you and Grayson!
We could not have asked for a more beautiful venue or accommodating staff. A rain shower came through right before the start of our daughter's wedding. Once it stopped they had every available staff member drying off seats and they turned it around in 10 minutes. My daughter was so impressed! Nicole worked to make sure every detail was just as we had planned and we heard from several guests that the food was the best they had ever had. A dream wedding come true!
Thanks so much, Terry! Yes, we will do whatever it takes to insure the perfect day for our brides. Sometimes that means quickly drying off every chair right after a brief rainstorm so we can continue that picturesque ceremony outdoors. We loved being a part of this wedding! Best of wishes to the new Mr. and Mrs.!
Everything was perfect. The establishment is simply beautiful. Everyone there was great to work with. Could not have chosen a more perfect place.
Thanks Sarah! The pleasure was truly all ours!
Awesome! Can't say enough about the beauty of Rose Hill and professionalism of all the staff. So helpful and accomodating of every need. They moved a rained out outdoor ceremony(one hour before) to inside beautiful Nathan Hall in a flash and so seamlessly. No hitches...everything you would expect from a professionally trained staff. Food was delicious too! If you want to enjoy your wedding and let someone else worry about "day of" details and logistics then consider Rose Hill. It was a beautiful weekend. We were so glad there was an inside option in case of rain! Love, love, love this venue and the staff! (mother of bride)
Rain or Shine it was a stunning wedding day! We loved being a part of your wedding and all the days leading up to it. You were a joy to plan with!
Cheers to a lifetime of happiness, Sally and Alston!
Our experience at Rose Hill was beyond amazing! We arrived Friday afternoon and did not want to leave Sunday! From our first visit to clean-up was just perfect! Nicole was outstanding to plan with, always making sure our questions were answered and we had everything we needed. The food was scrumptious! Having been to many weddings at a lot of different venues, I have never had food come close to being as delicious as this! Our guests are still talking about it! The bridesmaids stayed at the house Friday night and were treated like princesses! The groomsmen met there Saturday morning and enjoyed a day of skeet shooting, pool and lunch before getting ready for the ceremony. It is the perfect venue for a southern wedding! So thankful we chose Rose Hill for our special day!
Absolutely breathtaking venue with spectacular food and service. Rose Hill Plantation is truly a hidden gem. Highly recommend!
Thanks Elizabeth! We are thankful you let us be a part of your wedding day!
For our wedding, we wanted an outdoor ceremony, a place with a good back up plan in case of rain (because it is NC), and great food. From reviews on Wedding Wire and other sites, it was clear Rose Hill came highly rated. Upon visiting in person, it was beautiful and would provide us with great outdoor photo opportunities. We met with Nicole, who is extremely nice and professional.
Rose Hill has three normal ceremony spots (The front of the manor, the gazebo in front of the pond, or the pecan grove), but anywhere in the plantation can be used. We chose an unconventional location, but it rained the day of the wedding (only during the 45 minute ceremony time), so thank goodness Rose Hill has a great back up plan. The ceremony was moved into the reception hall which was prepared so that immediate family was sat up front, while all other guests were at their assigned tables. We were lucky the rain stopped by the end of the ceremony so we could walk the grounds for photos; however, Rose Hill was more than willing to allow us back for wedding photos had the rain continued.
Rose Hill prepares all food onsite (outside caterers are not allowed). We were initially nervous about selecting Rose Hill since we were under the impression we could not taste the food until after booking the venue. Upon tasting, there was no reason to be nervous, and the reviews were absolutely correct in regards to the food. It was fantastic! From the mac & cheese, the raspberry and brie filo-tart hors d'oeuvre, the ginger beer smoked pork loin, and every other item, the food was perfectly prepared. We have tried various local caterers, and they do not compare. For us, we wanted great food at the wedding and we are glad we spent the money to make that happen.
All of our guests were impressed and in awe at Rose Hill. The place is gorgeous, the staff is courteous, and the food is phenomenal. We cannot give Rose Hill enough praise.
Rose Hill could not have been a more PERFECT location for our wedding. Everything and I mean everything, was amazing. The venue is beautiful in all aspects. The food was literally some of the best I have ever had, my husband and I and our guests were blown away at how good it was. And the staff were incredible. Nicole always responded in a very timely manner and had an answer for every question my crazy, OCD mind could think of. The servers during our reception were also amazing, they were so kind and took care of our every need. I wish I could do it all over again just to experience this venue one more time. I HIGHLY recommend Rose Hill plantation!!
There are truly no words to express how wonderful this venue was to us. Our wedding was perfect. Friends, families, and strangers who have seen our pictures still compliment me on the perfection that was our wedding. Nicole was so knowledgable and made everything so easy. The food was AMAZING! It was a fairytale. It was better than we could have ever dreamed.
When we were first looking for a venue, there were so many venues online to look at, how do you pick one? We went and visited a couple, even put a deposit down on one of them. Then we saw Rose Hill Plantation. We fell in love with it as soon as you drive through the entrance way. It is breathtaking. We cancelled our other venue and decided to go with Rose Hill. Being from up north, I wanted something different and something that would WOW all of my relatives. It did just that! My family and friends could not stop raving about the wedding during and after. It was gorgeous! It was fall weather, a little chilly, but an amazing sunset. This would not have been possible without Nicole at Rose Hill! She helped me every step of the way. She answered a million questions from me and my mom and never once seemed annoyed. She seemed so happy to help and make our day perfect! Book this venue! If you want something to WOW your guests and something they will be speaking about for years to come, then book this venue and work with Nicole! I wish I could go back and do it all again :)
We wanted a venue that gave us something no other venue in Raleigh could... classic elegance, exclusivity, space, accommodation and exquisite food. So, with Rose Hill only being 30ish minutes away... it was a no brainer. Our guests RAVED about the venue, but we already knew they would. The scenery, the cocktail hour, the FOOD... it was everything we wanted and more & we could not be happier with the service we received.
Getting married at Rose Hill Plantation was a dream come true - the property, service, and food all were perfect! The tree-lined driveway is iconic, the manor house is classically beautiful, the lawn is immaculately kept, and the service is even better than the property itself! My mom and I planned my wedding down to the tiniest detail and Nicole could not have been better in helping us! She answered every single question we emailed for the entire year prior to the big day (no matter how ridiculous!) and never got aggravated or annoyed with anything all while even planning her own wedding! She organized my bridal portraits at the property, scheduled and attended our food tasting, and executed the wedding of our dreams! The food at Rose Hill can't even be described - it's just too good! The staff at Rose Hill was incredible. The memory that jumps to my mind was when we got to dance with them at the end of the night as a way to say thank you for all of their hard work!
Jacquelyn, the pleasure was truly all ours! You were such a joy to work with throughout the entire process! Your wedding day was absolutely stunning. Best Wishes to you and Hunter!
Rose Hill Plantation was the perfect choice for my wedding! My husband and I knew we needed to move quickly after our engagement in order to choose a wedding venue, so please note that they will be booked quickly in about a year in advance if you are looking for a Saturday wedding. Nicole was my contact person and she was amazing. I know I probably sent her tons of emails and she was always there to answer each of my questions in detail. Toward the wedding time she even organized a day of timeline with a breakdown of pricing. This was super helpful! When my husband and I visited the location, Walter was also very helpful to us. Our chosen ceremony location was the gazebo and Walter made sure to suggest that we keep an eye on the level of the sun about a year out from our wedding date...this way we could choose a ceremony time where our guests wouldn't have the sun in their faces. This venue also has a rain option so no need to rent a tent (which those can be super expensive). Everything about the place is gorgeous...the landscaping, house, reception location. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the place was and how amazing the food is. The on-site chef was amazing! His hors d'oeuvres were mouth watering and the food was outstanding. In fact, when my husband and I went for our tasting I almost got teary-eyed from how good the crab cakes were! Don't worry about missing out on having the hors d'oeuvres the day of...during the cocktail hour/picture time, Rose Hill had waiters there to give us hors d'oeuvres and drinks (I don't think I've heard of that happening anywhere else). Rose Hill also works closely with the rental company, Party Reflections and this made everything run super smoothly. When we were trying to choose other vendors for our wedding, Nicole gave us a list of preferred vendors. She also had wonderful suggestions for on-site hair and makeup. Thank you Nicole, Walter and the Rose Hill staff for helping with our special day!
We are from the Raleigh, NC area and looked at many venues in the Raleigh, Durham and Wake Forest areas. My daughter wanted a venue for an outside wedding with a backup plan if we had to move inside because of bad weather. Rose Hill Plantation had it all and was the perfect place. From the very first phone call Nicole Marion worked so hard to make her wedding day a true fairy tale wedding!! Nicole was always accommodating and such a sweetheart to work with making this whole wedding process so easy. The facility is truly amazing and is a one stop venue. We were able to host the Rehearsal Dinner, Wedding, and Reception all in one place. Our guests came as faraway as Norway and said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. Although there were many wonderful attendants during the Rehearsal Dinner and Wedding there are a few that I would like to recognize.
1) Nicole Marion is so professional and puts everyone at ease with her sweet personality. I cannot thank her enough for all her help! She is AWESOME!!
2) Steve was there from the moment my Director and I got there to decorate before the Rehearsal Dinner until we left at 11:00 p.m. after the Wedding reception. What a true gentleman and asset he is!!
3) Dawn was just amazing! I just loved her personality and she was such a hard worker throughout the Rehearsal Dinner and the Wedding making sure everyone was taken care of!! I just love her and she will forever hold a special place in my heart!!
Rose Hill Plantation is truly a gem!!!
Rose Hill Plantation is a dream come true. I'm not just saying that - it was so gorgeous in every detail that many of my guests said it was the most beautiful wedding that they had ever been too. The food is equally amazing! Not only is it convenient to have the chef onsite, but each dish was delicious. The service was on point - the wait staff, kitchen, and management were all very accommodating and attentive. Coordinator Nicole Marion was an excellent liaison and helped us make our decisions and plan the details. Even my groom (now husband) had a uniquely incredible experience because he and his party were able to go skeet shooting on the professional on-site range the morning of the wedding. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough!
From the very first meeting with this staff, we were impressed with their professionalism, eagerness to please us and willingness to accomodate our every wish. During the planning, they were responsive and courteous and very patient. Our guests have raved about the beauty of the venue, the wonderful food and the exceptional staff. The whole weekend was picture perfect and it was all because of the staff. It was a fairy tale come true and I just can't say enough great things about them. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone!!
A few paragraphs of wonderful things to say will never amount to how wonderful Rose Hill Plantation was to us! I first attended a wedding with my sister at Rose Hill 4-5 years ago, as babysitters for 4 children of the family (all of which who were in the wedding). I knew, right then, when we pulled up to the Manor House at Rose Hill, that I would plan my wedding one day at this amazing venue.
My husband, Seth, and I had our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and wedding reception at Rose Hill Plantation and all were EQUALLY amazing!!! From the food, the service from staff, and the hospitality, Rose Hill set the standards high. Nicole Marion, the wedding coordinator for Rose Hill, is absolutely phenomenal and I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with! She was always so approachable and flexible in scheduling in-person appointments, as well as phone calls to discuss any questions or concerns we had. And trust me, we had Nicole's email and phone number memorized, and she was always there when we needed her! Our wedding was magical and everything and more than we could have ever asked for. Nicole and her staff at Rose Hill put this bride and groom (and our entire bridal party and family) at ease with NO stress whatsoever. We could go on and on! Thank you so much to everyone at Rose Hill. You have outdone yourselves and provided us with the best day of our lives with so many lasting memories!
AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!!! Everything about my experience with Rose Hill was spectacular. We had our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and reception here. We pretty much rented out the place all weekend we loved it so much. Nicole was so sweet and helpful! I sent her so many emails and she got back to me right away and answered all of my questions. She made me feel so comfortable and like I wasn't bugging her. And the food!!! Oh my, the food was out of this world and I'm not just saying that because it was my wedding. We had everyone come up to us and tell us. We had stations and it was so good. Loved the chef -- he is so talented. We had a BBQ at the smokehouse for the rehearsal and that was just as good. Everything about the property was beautiful! There isn't a bad thing to say about it. My matron of honor and I even stayed in the Manor House the night before the wedding. Everyone that works there was so helpful. My husband, father, and groomsmen went clay shooting the day of the rehearsal and really enjoyed it. I can't speak highly enough about Rose Hill. You will be so happy you had your wedding here. I wish I could have wedding there every year!!
My husband and I planned our dream, North Carolina wedding from Texas and it all was rooted with the beautiful Rose Hill Plantation.
I had fallen in love with Rose Hill before we moved and knew I wouldn't find a venue to match the beauty or the value so we were eager to book it right away! Nicole was our coordinator and was incredibly accommodating and helpful throughout the entire process and was so sweet about my many, many questions for her.
We had our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception all at Rose Hill, and the morning of the wedding, my husband shot at the Rose Hill sporting clays range. Each aspect was perfect!
Many of our guests told us they had honestly never been to a more beautiful wedding, and neither had we. The venue is absolutely breath-taking no matter where you are! We loved our front porch ceremony, the indoor reception in Nathan Hall, and having the luxury of staying in this beautiful manor overnight. Waking up and having coffee on the back porch is a moment my husband and I will never forget.
I could go on and on about how wonderful Rose Hill was for us, but I'll stop here. There truly isn't a single thing I would change! My advice to brides looking for the perfect venue is to stop looking and BOOK ROSE HILL NOW!!
