"Breathtaking" is the only word I can use to describe Bennett Bunn. The venue, natural surroundings, all of it. It's also the word that I heard from our guests over and over again.

We considered other venues, but BB had everything we wanted. No tents to set up, because the space provided was adequate and perfect. The caterers (Rocky Top Hospitality) were so pleased when I told them that we had chosen BB, because they appreciated the facilities provided. First class, all the way around.

I worked with Jill for several months and she made the process made this not only an enjoyable experience, but one that was very personal to me and my husband. We wanted the wedding to reflect us, not a picture from a wedding magazine.

Jill . . . thank you, thank you, thank you. You made the most important day of our lives even more beautiful.

The Grand Ballroom was beautiful and perfect for our wedding. We did the ceremony and rehearsal in the same room with a cocktail hour between to provide time for a second set up. Everything worked out perfectly. For reference we had 120 people seated with a full band and dance floor. Perfect amount of space. Everyone at the facility was so helpful and flexible both before the event and during. The day of, everything was set up just as we had anticipated, perfection!

Everything about my wedding was perfect. I couldn't have imagined it being anywhere else. The location was a perfect setting for a Downtown event, with parking close by, and easy access to other downtown hot-spots. The interior of the room was beautiful and the space well planned to handle my guests. Even the rooms downstairs were just what we needed to get ready beforehand.

Katie was a tremendous help along the way. From meeting her at the venue early on, we clicked right away, and she was able to give me guidance as to what I needed to get started and provided assistance with anything that I needed along the way. She was with me picking out the rentals for the table settings as well as providing assistence during our rehearsal the night before.

With the days leading up to our wedding, Katie took control of connecting with all of my other vendors and made sure everything went smoothly setting up beforehand.

When the wedding night finally arrived, I had nothing to worry about thanks to Katie and her team. I know they helped make that night one that I will never forget. I will highly recommend the team here at Historic Venues to any of my friends looking to hold a special occasion.

Beautiful downtown venue that is close to hotels and bars for guests to go to afterwards. DJ or Band should bring uplighting since the overhead lights are so bright.

The best experience we could have had! Not only were the owners flexible and nice but we gained a great friend (venue director) out of the process. Highly recommend! Beautiful setting. I've already referred some friends.

I had my wedding and reception at the Bennett Bunn Plantation with Historic Venues, LLC. This was the most beautiful place and most comfortable venue. I loved everything about the place, and because of how beautiful it was I didn't have to decorate too much. The staff was exceptional and had everything in place just like we agreed on. Everything was perfect and smooth thanks to the staff. They were attentive and made sure that everything I requested was done correctly. They were always helpful and willing to offer suggestions for layout. My wedding ceremony and reception were both perfect thanks to the venue and the staff. Wonderful!

Everyone at the Bennett-Bunn Plantation was absolutely wonderful to work with from the time we booked the venue through the day of the wedding and beyond. They were super flexible, and did everything they could to make the day go perfectly. We couldn't have asked for a better place to get married!

The Grand Ballroom was wonderful. If we had to plan our event over again, we would not change a thing.

I had my bridesmaid's luncheon at the BB Plantation in Zebulon Friday the 19th of April 2013 then that evening our rehearsal dinner in the Ballroom downtown. The Hendrickson's (Katie, Jill and Tom) are so easy to work with. The family owns both venues. I loved the feel of the plantation with all the animals and beautiful land just minutes from downtown Raleigh. It was a hit with all my friends and family. It was very different than going to a country club or restaurant. There is a peace to the plantation you will not find in the city! They have done an amazing job with this venue! A must see!

Friday night was unbelievable! Katie and Jill were there and helped the vendors set up and knew from our conversations exactly how my husband and I wanted everything! The ballroom is a lovely site in downtown Raleigh.
I would highly recommend BOTH sites to my friends and others looking to make your special day perfect!

Thank you for everything you did to make our weekend fabulous!
