One of the most exciting new barn wedding venues in Raleigh is Walnut Hill. Owner Amanda Peoples has created an incredible NC destination on her family property. She runs this venue today, with passion and joy. Located 20 minutes from the heart of Downtown Raleigh, Walnut Hill offers the country and rustic appeal of a wedding close to downtown.
The historic farmhouse has become a little haven for the wedding party to use at their leisure while preparing for the ceremony. There are multiple getting ready suites, as well as plenty of space for lounging and relaxing. This includes a Southern wrap-around porch, complete with rocking chairs.
This house is available to stay overnight for an extra fee. Recently, Amanda renovated a second home on the property for additional accommodations rentals.
The front entrance of the farmhouse estate leads to a beautifully manicured lawn with a giant ancient oak tree, which is a very romantic wedding ceremony site.
The centerpiece of the property is the new construction white barn, which was created to host weddings and private events for up to 200 guests. The beautiful, open space is mutually elegant and rustic. Large windows along the entire back wall show views of a pond among pastureland.
Most recently, Amanda added in an open air ceremony chapel. This stunning fixture speaks for itself when you see the images, below.
Walnut Hill’s talented and experienced staff will make sure each and every detail is ready to go when the day finally comes along. Couples rave about working with owner Amanda Peoples.
The 400 acres of undeveloped land that surround Walnut Hill are picture perfect farmland. You might even catch a glimpse of Belted cows roaming across the street on your wedding day. Amenities include ample space for parking, modern restrooms, and a great kitchen for your caterer of choice.
Amanda, the venue owner, grew up on this piece of land – spending summers growing vegetables and swimming in the lake. It has been her dream to turn the family farm into a special place where couples can begin their marriage.
“Walnut Hill has been a place of relaxation and joy for our family for generations. Over the last year we have transformed our family property into the venue of our dreams while still maintaining the historic outbuildings and natural beauty that make this place so special. Come take a tour with us and explore this hidden gem only 20 minutes from downtown Raleigh.” -Amanda
