There’s so much to consider when selecting the perfect wedding venue for your special day. From flower settings, to cake design, to possible color schemes, and even down to what you’ll be wearing, it’s no wonder wedding planning can become such a stressful affair. This, however, is why Highgrove Estate exists.

Planning Your Wedding At Highgrove Estate
Each year, we plan a photoshoot to allow couples and their families to get a closer look at all of the amazing possibilities that come with planning a wedding at Highgrove Estate. For this shoot, we love using our in-house vendors, who can also be found on the preferred vendors list that is given to each of our couples at the beginning of their wedding planning process. These incredible vendors always help put together some of the most spectacular visuals for our couples and viewers to enjoy.
This year, Rachel Kendrick, our very own Sales Director, who introduces each and every couple to Highgrove Estate, was our model. Rachel has been with Highgrove Estate for a little over 5 years, and in the summer of 2015, Rachel met with the President and Owner, Vicky Ismail, with the plans to envision a new look and feel for Highgrove Estate. This of course lead to a complete remodel of the house, ballroom, and grounds in 2016.
While Oak City Bridal, Emma Katzka Bridal, and The Bardot helped Rachel transform into a beautiful bride, the creative team at Flowers On Broad Street transformed the grounds with their amazing floral talents. Then to top everything off, we had the incredible Rachel Red Photography deliver some of the most dreamy and magical shots ever.
The ethereal, bohemian inspired vibe of this shoot is what we believe will be on trend for many of the weddings we see in 2020. Luckily, with the natural beauty of our estate, there’s very little that has to be done when decorating the property, so you can choose to be as over the top, or as minimalistic as you’d like, with your floral design.
Situated on over 7 acres of land, just outside Raleigh, NC, our grounds are full of beautiful views, stunning backdrops, and plenty of magical places to take photos, in order to create memories that last a lifetime. The interior of the estate is fully furnished, and has several well-appointed rooms that are perfect for photos and time with your family and friends prior to the ceremony.
The 18” foot pergola is a newer addition to Highgrove Estate, and was designed to be the ideal location for our couples to exchange vows. The grand chandelier that hangs from its beams was custom ordered and created for exterior use. It will continue to gleam regardless of the elements.
Each and every detail of your day will be carefully planned here. From the welcome cocktails to the farewell sparkler send off, Highgrove Estate ensures that each and every wedding will be an absolute dream come true.
