destination weddingPlanning a destination wedding might sound like a big undertaking, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. Most of today’s couples haven’t lived in the same place all of their lives, so family members, college friends, and work colleagues may all be traveling from different locations  A destination wedding is often a great solution. North Carolina offers a central location with beautiful weather and numerous transportation hubs to make travel easier. The Rand-Bryan House is a Raleigh favorite because it offers:

In addition, guests are often fascinated by the history of the farm and the location provides a glimpse into local culture. Spending time at the Rand-Bryan House can be a rich experience, especially for guests from other parts of the country. 
  • A pleasant climate for outdoor weddings, especially during the spring and fall. Temperate weather means that you can enjoy ideal conditions practically any time of the year. 
  • A peaceful rural setting with easy access to interstates, air travel, and downtown Raleigh.. Our venue is easy to reach, but slightly removed from the hustle and bustle. You and your guests can spend time enjoying our lush grounds and idyllic setting.
  • An abundance of convenient hotels, restaurants, and entertainment options. A destination wedding is a perfect opportunity for friends and family to reconnect and spend some quality time together. With so much to do, guests of all ages will enjoy a great vacation in addition to your wedding.

Thanks to Story & Rhythm for sharing a few pictures of Lauren & Archie’s outdoor wedding from the spring of 2018. This bride and groom traveled here from Iowa and all of their guests were from out of state. We were so happy to host them and delighted that they were so pleased with their special day.
