The Park Alumni Center – An Elegant Wedding Venue in Raleigh on NC State University Centennial Campus

For a Raleigh wedding venue that is both elegant and steeped in NC State University tradition, the Park Alumni Center is a perfect choice.

Whether or not you are a Wolfpack fan, this venue will blow you away. Gorgeous white marble floors greet guests as the enter the facility, as well as a grand double-sided staircase. The white marble continues into the ballroom, which is a sight to behold. The ballroom has ceilings that stretch three stories high, and windows to match. Other features include white marble walls and handsome wooden fireplaces. Outside, there are terraces and lakeside views. Events can spill over into the patio areas, or be used for cocktail hour.

How big can your wedding be at the Park Alumni Center? For weddings, we advise leaving space for a dance floor. That means the ideal fit for the Great Reception space is around 150. But, you can host larger tented weddings up to about 300 on the courtyard patio.

Inclusive Wedding Packages from top Raleigh Caterer Mitchell-Casteel

As the NC State University venue, Park Alumni Center is synonymous with upscale Raleigh events. And now, it’s gotten even better. In 2021, they brought on an exclusive caterer to operate the private events and weddings. Top Raleigh caterer Mitchell-Casteel is now onboard to run the event food program. Additionally, they are opening an onsite restaurant, which will be a go-to favorite for NC State University employees and students.

This onsite catering program makes this venue very easy to work with. But more important, the quality of this caterer ensures that your meal will be unforgettable.

Also for your convenience, there is a hotel that is right next door!

We looked at a few venues before we settled on the right one and what sealed the deal was the friendly staff, great food, beautiful environment and proximity to a hotel for our out of town guests.
