The Venue

The Pavilion at Carriage Farm

Raleigh, NC

A long driveway transports you from a country road to a quiet getaway. Along the drive, catch a glimpse of the deer or bald eagles that call Carriage Farm their home and enjoy the sight of North Carolina’s towering long-leaf pines.

The new 10,000-square-foot Pavilion opened in 2017, designed and built by a native North Carolina family deeply rooted in their community. Wood beams stretch to a 30-foot gambrel roof. The Pavilion comes complete with indoor restrooms and catering kitchen, space for cocktail hour, and a place for the bride and groom to prepare. The Pavilion’s open-air reception area can accommodate up to 300 seated guests and a dance floor.
