I cannot say enough positive things about 1705 Prime. They just redid the interior and it's absolutely beautiful. I had my wedding on probably the worst day of the year, during an ice storm, but the staff still made sure that my husband and I and all of our guests had a great time. Elizabeth was my planner and went over and beyond any of my expectations. Also, the food is amazing. You cannot go wrong with this venue!

1705 was very accommodating! We had originally booked The Twisted Fork, but due to a small kitchen fire it wasn't available anymore. Rocky Top was very quick in directing us to 1705 Prime and they were happy to work with us on menu & bar items. Along with decorations! Food was great & everyone had a great time!

Carol Sasseen from Rocky Top Catering/Hospitality was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! From the moment we met Carol, I was sold. I had been to a wedding reception at 1705 Prime almost 10 years ago, so I'd always considered it an option for my own, but after meeting with Carol, my decision was confirmed--we never even looked at another venue!

From the beginning, I loved the idea of doing stations for my reception dinner. I was under the impression that I had to choose from a specific set menu--I was wrong! I literally could have told them I wanted a corndog station and I'm pretty sure they would have found a way to make it happen. All joking aside, it was perfect.

Rocky Top does full on events every 3 months, which is how you get your "tasting." You show up to one of their venues, pick up your name tag, and enjoy a full reception event starting with passed appetizers, to photographers, a champagne station, seafood raw bar, full liquor bar, AND the infamous cake table. This was amazing for us because not only did we get to taste the food they offered, but we were able to see HOW they put on an event, as well. And let me tell you, the place is top notch!

I was adamant about not hiring a wedding planner--I wanted to handle everything myself and make sure it was done how WE wanted it to be done. Having said that, I left just about everything up to Carol! We chose the food and let her take care of the rest and she absolutely did. So, I may not have ever pictured having a wedding planner for the entire day, but I CAN say this... I had an OUTSTANDING "reception coordinator" after the ceremony! Carol is the first person we saw when we arrived to 1705 Prime... when she saw me, she cried. If this isn't a testament to the relationship we built over the last 7 months of planning, then I'm not sure what is.

I would recommend Rocky Top Catering and 1705 Prime 100% from every aspect-they were so easy to work with, get in touch with, and to enjoy my wedding day with!

Our wedding was two weeks ago and we are still receiving compliments on our choice of venue and food. The space is beautiful and was absolutely perfect for the size of our wedding (just under 100 guests). Many venues we viewed would have felt too large/too small, etc, but I get the feeling that 1705 is made to comfortably fit any number you have. The staff was wonderful and very flexible. I got sick at the wedding - worst luck ever - and they were so sweet bringing me anything I needed and extending cocktail hour keeping guests from noticing my absence. I would absolutely recommend this venue/catering to anyone!

We worked with Elizabeth at Rocky Top the whole planning of our catering for our wedding. She and her staff were great! We must have met with her half a dozen times before we decided on a menu and structure that worked for us. She was patient and attentive the whole time. She would even follow up with me when she hadn't heard back in a while and made everything was perfect for the big day. The food was great and the wait staff was awesome. Everyone was super friendly and helpful, everyone's glasses stayed full and everyone had a smile on their faces. so glad to have gone with this vendor. You can tell they have done this before and are great at what they do. They are true professionals.

When we started looking for venues for our wedding, we were overwhelmed by the number of places in the Raleigh area. We visited 1705 Prime and met with Jenn, and immediately knew this was the venue we were going to be married in.
Jenn is knowledgeable about everything that happens with 1705 Prime and Rocky Top Catering. She answers all of your questions professionally and provides suggestions for your event. In our initial meeting, we told her the vision of the day, and our desired budget - and she never lost sight of either through the entire planning process. She can recommend vendors that fit your needs and budget, and will blow you away!
The chef and other staff are very professional, friendly, and trustworthy.
