Wedding Reception Venues and Wedding Venues in Raleigh, Durham, Cary and Chapel Hill, NC

Heart of NC Weddings magazine is proud to share the most comprehensive resource of the best Triangle NC wedding venues in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary and Apex. Many of these event spaces are the most sought after NC wedding venues in our region. Some are hidden gems. All of these event locations are high quality event spaces and are staffed by professionals. Heart of NC Weddings is also sharing some of the most special venues that our team has discovered on the coast and in the mountains. Our interactive, wedding venue guide (located halfway down the page) will help you sort venues by region, size and style. The wedding location is the base for your event's tone, and it sets the stage for your overall wedding theme. Venues also book early so they should be considered early in the wedding planning process. We want to offer you the best venues in the area. Have a look and see what is available.

You will be amazed by the wide range of event spaces available for NC weddings. Our state has something for every couple – historic mansions, rustic pavilions, restored urban warehouses, fairy-tale castles, resorts overlooking the ocean, and modern art museums.

Touring wedding venues and attending open house events can be incredibly fun, but it’s important to stay focused. Be sure to ask in-depth questions of each venue, such as what their packages include (i.e., food, chairs, parking, bridal suite). Our Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill wedding venues host open house events regularly, so be sure to follow along with Heart of NC Weddings on social media for the latest event notices!
