Top 5 New Wedding Venues in RDU 2021
The Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill area (aka The Triangle) has been booming over the last decade, and new venue have been popping up all over the area. As weddings are coming back into full swing, I wanted to highlight some new venues that are opening this year in the area!
A little about me? I am a wedding film photographer & videographer based out of the area. I love weddings, and if you want to find out more about me head over to here!
1. The Maxwell
Right outside of Downtown Raleigh is a beautiful new venue, The Maxwell. Bright & White, it is a photographer’s dream. It also not only is a great blank canvas, but has statement details such a their great room fireplace.
2. Carolina Grove
“A modern + airy venue elevated with luxurious amenities and surrounded by sixty-five acres of natural beauty”
Another Photographer’s dream, with an all-white interior. This venue is huge with space for all your guests for the reception, but also getting ready. Their getting ready suites are large, full of light, and the perfect spot to relax on your wedding morning. Carolina Grove is located in Hillsborough, NC
3. The Distillery
The Distillery hosted their first wedding this past month, and I am excited to have already shot here and have a wedding on the books for October! Operated by Chad Biggs Events, the venue was designed for all not only couples & their guests, but vendors as well. The Distillery is an amazing addition, as most industrial/modern venues do not offer such large & bright spaces. The Distillery is located in Downtown Garner, just outside of Raleigh.
4. The Upchurch
The Upchurch, located in Apex, NC, is the newest addition and is just starting its renovations/building. Combing a historic home with a modern reception space, it will be a unique venue addition to the Raleigh area. Operated by a local tenured wedding photographer, F8 studios, the Upchurch is sure to impress not only photographers, but everyone attending!
5. Daniel’s Ridge
Daniel’s Ridge is a new venue located at Broken Plow Farm in Sanford, NC. Though it maybe a small drive out of the city, it offers a beautiful large reception space combined with a breath taking outdoor space.
