The Upchurch – A New NC Wedding and Event Venue Opening in 2022
With over 16 years of wedding photography experience under her belt, Cara Powell of f8 Photo Studios has an eye for beauty. Her latest project? Restoring the Upchurch-Williams house, a 115-year-old historic property in Apex. Cara is turning the historic home into The Upchurch, a new NC wedding and event venue.
Originally built in 1905, the Upchurch-Williams home has a classic Queen Anne style. Imagine taking sunset wedding portraits on The Upchurch’s restored front porch! In 2015, before Cara purchased the property, the home was moved down the road from its original location on Roberts Road. In 2018, the house and land were granted Apex Historic Landmark status.
The Perfect Combination of Traditional and Modern – The Upchurch
As if restoring the Upchurch-Williams house to its original glory was enough, Cara plans to build an additional event space building on the property. The new addition will have a chic greenhouse style vibe that complements the more traditional Southern home.
