Built in the 1900s, Highgrove Estate exudes a timeless elegance and classic aesthetic. Just 20 minutes from Raleigh, our serene property nestled on 7 acres of rolling lush land will make you feel as if you’ve escaped into a secret, romantic destination. Featuring a parlor room, a beautiful bridal suite, and stunning rooms filled with natural light, the Estate is sure to leave you breathless — especially years from now when reminiscing on your ageless wedding photos. From the moment you step through our door, we’ll help you create memories that last a lifetime.
When the doors open and you take your first steps toward your future standing at the end of the aisle, everything else seems to fade away. As you stand beneath the sparkling chandelier, glistening in the sunlight, promise your vows of a lifetime of love beneath our grand 18-foot chestnut-stained pergola. Overlooking Lake Laurel, lush foliage creates the perfect atmosphere to immerse yourself in special moments as husband + wife, while reminiscing and celebrating in the love you share. Our ceremony area is the perfect balance of nature and elegance, and the warmth of the wood transitions seamlessly to every season.
THE BRIDAL SUITE
With gorgeous tones, ideal hues, and an abundance of natural light, the Bridal Suite makes for the picture-perfect wedding preparation setting. Rest, relax, and be pampered with a glass of champagne and your girls by your side. Create your once-in-a-lifetime moments in the Bridal Suite, the ones you’ve always dreamed of since you were a little girl.
THE GROOM SUITE
Groom, this is your day, too! While your bride is getting ready across the way, you and your groomsmen can relax with a chilled beer and snacks in the rustic, masculine suite. And don’t worry, we’ll help you pin those boutonnieres!
THE SPECIAL SUITE
Our Special Suite serves as the perfect room for first looks and prayers, family members to relax before the ceremony, and picturesque backdrops. This room is used for the big moments, the small moments, and all of the details you’ve dedicated to designing. From first looks to beautiful dress shots, we believe it all should be captured in a gorgeous setting.
THE GRAND BALLROOM
Celebrate the wedding of your dreams beneath draped ceilings, twinkling lights, and sparkling antique chandeliers. The fireplace serves as an elegant backdrop to complement any dreamy tablescape. To help your vision come to life without any stress, we include your tables, chiavari chairs, linens, dinnerware, lantern centerpieces, and so much more! We’ll even set everything up for you so that you can simply revel in the celebration of the day. The intricate detail + design of Highgrove provides a beautiful canvas for your dream wedding. Whether light & classic or bright & bold, your reception vision will fit seamlessly in our Grand Ballroom! Our state of the art service includes plated dinners, professional servers, cake cutting, and champagne pours before you dance the night away.
THE SIDE PATIO
The romantic side patio is adorned with antique chandeliers that hang beneath a grand covered wood pergola. The spacious, open-air setting is perfect for intimate ceremonies, mingling during cocktail hour, or taking a breath of fresh air during the reception. We invite you and your loved ones to gather around the cozy brick fireplace in this warm ambiance to share in the love and joy on your wedding day.
Whether your wedding weekend weather is 40 or 90 degrees, our talented mixologists can create the perfect craft cocktails for you! In addition to a bar of beer, wine and/or liquor drinks, allow us to add a touch of sophistication and class with a signature drink during your cocktail hour. Our team can help you curate the perfect one to match your style, taste, and theme.
THE BEAUTY BUS
The Beauty Bus is our newest addition to our property! We’ve renovated a vintage bus to include marbles, whites, and golds. Arrive as early as you’d like to begin your day of hair & makeup. There’s no stress here, so we encourage a relaxing day filled with beauty and laughter!
