We held our ceremony and reception at the North Carolina Botanical Gardens, just off of UNC-Chapel Hill's campus. It was beautiful! They have a few different options for ceremony spaces. With the rain, we had to move our ceremony, but it ended up being gorgeous, and some of my family told me they actually liked it better than the original spot. We were covered and out of the rain, but still outside overlooking the gardens. It was convenient to go straight to the reception, which is also a beautiful space -- a large room (one wall of glass windows) with an outdoor balcony. The whole building is new and clean. There are also really great spaces (indoor and outdoor) for pictures. My one complaint is that the sound system in the reception space wasn't good -- it was fine for talking, but not loud enough for dancing music. I just wish I had known in advance because it would have been really easy to bring in my own sound system. Also, not very flexible -- it's owned and operated by the university, so the rules are the rules, period. Decent value, not fantastic -- for $3000 we got the venue for 10 hours (1pm-11pm), including set up, the event, and clean up.

The Coker Arboretum, on the campus of the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill was the perfect setting, they have a nice open field and allow you to have a maximum of 200 guests, which was the perfect size to fill a corner of the garden. There was no need to decorate a thing since the backdrop of the wedding was a lush garden with beautiful green grass, trees, bushes and flowers. They also have some of the most beautiful opportunities for wedding portraits with a covered arboretum walkway and several small bridges.
