Manor at Carriage Farm, located in Raleigh NC, is a stunning venue for your wedding ceremony and/or wedding reception. Whether you dream of a small afternoon garden ceremony or an elegantly tented gala under the stars, you will find it at the Manor. Our property offers multiple sites for ceremonies and receptions – you are limited only by the boundaries of the 112-acre property and your dreams. The Manor can accommodate most wedding events, large or small.
Highlights of the property
The features of this beautiful property are perfect for wedding day memories. A circular drive leads to the Manor’s double doors and classic balustrades, perfect for grand entrances, romantic departures and stunning photographs. The second floor of the manor boasts a balcony with double doors and scenic overlook that make this a stunning bridal portrait opportunity–one of many vignettes on the property popular with brides and their wedding photographers. A two story foyer features a grand twisting staircase that also serves as the perfect spot for wedding party photographs.
The bridal suite
Just off the gardens, the spacious bridal suite can accommodate the bride and her attendants. Its casually elegant style is a relaxing environment for pre-ceremony or wedding reception preparations. A dressing area with full length mirror and en suite with shower, garden tub and three vanities are perfect for hair and makeup.
The groom’s retreat
On the other side of the home is a large private den for the groom and his attendants to congregate before the wedding. Here the groom and his party can relax on plush couches, watch the big screen television as well as access a wet bar and pool table.
Starting in Spring 2017, the Manor offers another option for weddings and events: a 10,000-square-foot, open-air Pavilion. The Pavilion’s reception area can accommodate 50 to 350 seated guests and a dance floor and features a grand stone fireplace and four immense chandeliers. An enclosed portion of the Pavilion offers convenient restrooms, a catering kitchen, space for cocktail hours, and a bridal suite and groom’s retreat.
In the backyard garden area guests are surrounded by lush landscaping filled with Southern favorites such as roses, magnolias and crepe myrtles. Along the garden’s stone pathways are many other fragrant plants and trees including beautiful butterfly bushes. The lush landscaping adds a formal touch to the gardens. The focal point of this area is a large stone patio and red cedar pergola that easily accommodates a large wedding ceremony or wedding reception. An annual bed beyond the pergola provides a pop of seasonal color while a nearby column, perfectly placed, can hold a unity candle or floral arrangement. In addition, this area features an elevated veranda that is another popular option for ceremonies. A stroll around the property often reveals other picturesque event options.
