Walnut Hill: New Barn Wedding Venue in Raleigh with a Historic Farmhouse

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. The centerpiece of the property is the newly constructed 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.

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. The front entrance leads to a beautifully manicured lawn with a giant ancient oak tree, which is a very romantic wedding ceremony site.

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.

Proximity to Downtown Raleigh

Walnut Hill’s talented and experienced staff will make sure each and every detail is ready to go when the day finally comes along. Walnut Hill is open all year round and is here to help you through your wedding planning and prep. Located 20 minutes from the heart of Downtown Raleigh, Walnut Hill offers the country and rustic appeal of a wedding close to downtown. Walnut Hill has countless indoor and outdoor spaces to host your rehearsal dinner, brunch or wedding reception all in one location. This NC wedding venue is a premier wedding destination for couples across the state, especially for those from the Triangle, Raleigh/Durham and Eastern North Carolina. Walnut Hill is honored to be a part of making couples’ special day magical and unforgettable.

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

What Guests Are Saying

“Walnut Hill checked all of our boxes for a wedding venue — the Southern wedding charm, the dramatic and beautiful landscape, covered spaces to get married if there is rain, a place to get ready and the list truly goes on. The owner, Amanda, is amazing; so helpful, responsive, and very laid back. Daniel, the day-of manager, was equally as amazing and was available for any questions we had leading up to our day, while also making sure our day went smoothly! Our wedding was beautiful and exactly what we had hoped for. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to choose Walnut Hill!” -Alysa Arnold
“I love this venue and everything about it. From the start, Amanda has been amazing. I toured eight venues, and this was by far my favorite. It checked all the boxes.” -Kelly Smith

I don't know where to begin because I'm just so excited to tell you all how amazing Walnut Hill is! We toured multiple wedding venues before Walnut Hill and after each one we both had certain things we didn't like about them. However, after touring Walnut Hill we got in the car and both immediately said that we didn't need to see any more venues because this was the one! The property is absolutely gorgeous, making you forget that you are close to the bustling city of Raleigh. Anytime I had a question about the property, needed a vendor recommendation, or just needed advice on what to do, Amanda was always so responsive and willing to help! The cost was affordable, and we really appreciated that it came with tables and chairs and a credit to use towards rentals.
