Most Popular Wedding Venues, Greater Raleigh NC

Here are the most popular wedding venues in the greater Raleigh NC area where Catering-by-Design caters are the Marbles Kids Museum, Shady Wagon Farm, The Grand Marquise, the NC Museum of History and Haywood Hall.

What can we learn from these top five venues? Three of them are in downtown Raleigh. Very central. Haywood Hall is traditional. The NC Museum of History is contemporary. The Marbles Kids Museum is also contemporary and artsy. Then Shady Wagon Farm and The Grand Marquise are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Shady Wagon Farm is an idyllic setting in the country side, with a beautiful home, quarters for the bride and the groom, a big pond, an outdoor setting for a wedding, and the most fantastic outdoor covered pavillion you could want next to the large barn. The Grand Marquise is elegant, with a grand staircase, fit for royalty.
