Early April is such a lovely month to get married – the dogwoods and azaleas are blooming, the air is fresh, the trees have that lime green color, and everyone is thrilled that the hot humid summer is still months away. 🙂
We helped with four weddings this beautiful spring weekend – our couple clients were married at venues that are all about the beautiful outdoors – Windy Hill, The Barn of Valhalla, Cornealius Property, and Campbell Lodge. Our experiences with the first three locations have always been delightful, and this weekend was our first wedding at Campbell Lodge. When couples tell us they are getting married at any of these venues, we know they will truly enjoy their wedding day.
Windy Hill Farm – Cedar Grove
Windy Hill Farm is a working farm in northern Orange County and has been farmed since the 1800s. This authentic rustic venue is a wonderful place to get married and the owners are sincere about their mission to use “sustainable farming practices … and preserve the history of this beautiful piece of earth.”

The Barn of Valhalla – Chapel Hill
This beautiful upscale rustic venue, located on the rural west side of Chapel Hill, is an amazing place for events. The property has a barn, lodge, gazebo, walkways connecting all the sites, a pond, and lush grounds. We always love visiting this well-maintained venue.

The Cornealius Properties – Goldsboro
Although we haven’t actually been to this upscale and inclusive venue, we’ve had many couples get married here. With the distance a bit further, they all have elected to pickup and return our rentals. Every couple we have served loves this place. Many features are included -Birdsong Chapel, Carriage Hall, HoneyMoon House, Camp Cabin, The Boat House, and a pond and dock.

Campbell Lodge – Durant Nature Preserve, Raleigh
This was our first wedding at the Campbell Lodge, a lovely venue nestled in a natural preserve owned by the city of Raleigh. The spacious lodge features two stone fireplaces on each end and a deck that overlooks one of the lakes at the preserve. We are very pleased to have visited this special venue and look forward to returning.
Preparing for these happy events kept us quite busy but we did get a chance to update last week’s post with more glassware numbers. Check it out!
Now, time to wash a few dishes and get ready for a wedding at another impressive venue, the Carriage House of Chapel Hill.
