Such a special and beautiful venue right in the heart of downtown Raleigh. The house manager, Greg, is an absolute pleasure to work with--so accommodating and always available to answer questions and offer advice. We had a magical spring wedding in the garden and could not be happier with our choice of venue.

We had our ceremony/reception at Haywood hall and LOVED it. We had everything outside and the pictures do not do this place justice. The location is perfect, you will not be able to find something like this anywhere else in downtown Raleigh. It was great for out of town guests because there is an abundance of hotels for them to choose from and several of our guests made a weekend trip out of it. Even though you are in the heart of downtown it still has a secluded feeling because of the beautiful mature trees. I loved the historical and southern feeling of this house and it was so close to the Capitol we were able to take some photos there as well. The grounds are well maintained and gorgeous which allowed us to save money on flowers and decorations. We were able to choose all our own vendors instead of being limited to a select few the venue allows. This allowed us to control the total cost of the wedding.

Greg was a blessing to work with; he answered any question we had promptly and had a list of recommendations for vendors if we didn’t have an idea. We had our wedding on an April evening and was debating about whether or not we would need a heater and siding on the tent once the sun goes down. Greg was amazing and I decided last minute at our Rehearsal that yes we should get those items and he called the rental company himself and not only was able to get us the equipment but also a great deal!

Our experience at Haywood Hall & Gardens has been very nice so far. We did not want the traditional venues that are so popular for weddings and very much wanted something historical, outside, and nicely priced. We could not ask for more and fell in love with the place after only 1 visit in which it was pouring down raining. The gardens are beautifully kept and offers weddings so much natural decor without having to pay a steep price. In addition, there is a lot of space to work with and you feel as if you are in your own oasis despite being in downtown. It is also nearby parking decks which are free on the weekends, a nice convenience for guests. While it is not all inclusive, the resident manager is able to work with wedding parties and refer them to many vendors that have frequented Haywood Hall. We cant wait to be married here and are so excited we found this hidden treasure! (:

We had our wedding at Haywood Hall the first weekend in May - ceremony & reception. It was absolutely beautiful! We got lucky with the weather. Greg was very responsive and helpful. The grounds were manicured the day before and looked perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better setting!

Greg, the manager and resident of Haywood, could not have been more helpful. In the midst of an unexpected move to NYC due to work we needed all the help we could get and Greg went above and beyond. Also, his florist recommendation, Janet, was a complete miracle worker. I will never forget my bouquet- it was more than I could ever have imagined. She also helped us with all the set up and trash removal. The venue, vendors, and of course the weather all worked out to make our 4.30.16 wedding a complete success!

I had a wonderful wedding reception at Haywood Hall & Gardens. Our ceremony took place across the street at Christ Church and our guests came directly from the ceremony to the reception. The reception was indoor/outdoor and the outdoor portion was mostly tented due to uncertainty about the weather (and of course it ended up being a beautiful evening!). We were married in April and the gardens were just gorgeous! We hardly needed flower centerpieces, as the gardens were in full bloom.

I worked with the resident manager Greg very closely during our 16 month planning process. He made the grounds available to us with little notice on many occasions. He had a lot of insight about placement of tables, chairs, food stations, & tents. He made sure the grounds were clean and neat before our wedding weekend. He also went above and beyond on my wedding day, helping my bridesmaids keep their belongings secure, and generally helping keep the event flowing smoothly.

Haywood Hall is very special to my new family. My husband's mother is a Haywood and what is now a museum & gardens was once her family's ancestral home. It was touching to talk with and dance with so many members of the Haywood family at Haywood Hall. I would recommend Haywood Hall to anyone looking to get married in a beautiful indoor/outdoor space in downtown Raleigh!!

I got four compliments from nearly every guest on my wedding day: beautiful dress, good DJ, good food and BEAUTIFUL VENUE. Haywood Hall is truly a hidden gem in Downtown Raleigh. I never would have known it existed had I not thoroughly researched Downtown Raleigh wedding venues. The property is near the Capitol, but tucked away on a side street with an abundance of large oak trees, shrubs and flowers to block out all the city noise. If you're looking for a garden wedding in an excellent location, Haywood Hall is the perfect setting for you. Further, the groundskeeper, Greg Mobley, has an in-depth knowledge of local vendors and the downtown area. He's incredibly nice and willing to help in any way that he can. He referred me to the best florist, Janet Cross, and gave me some other helpful tips in the wedding planning process. For such a beautiful property in such a convenient location, the cost of hosting a wedding at Haywood is a bargain. One caveat is that you probably need a good year 1/2 to comfortably plan a wedding at Haywood since the venue doesn't come with anything but the property (you must book your own rentals, caterer, etc.). Another downside would be that the site doesn't offer the best rain plan. In the event of inclement weather, you would just have to order more tents for the backyard. However, if you don't mind a little extra work in the planning process and you're willing to "go with the flow" in case the weather doesn't cooperate, this couldn't be a more perfect venue for you and your guests.

It was an absolute pleasure to have our reception at Haywood Hall! The grounds/gardens are beautiful and especially so on our wedding day with all of the rain we had in weeks prior. Greg, who manages the home and events, was amazing to work with. I couldn't imagine working with someone more accommodating, flexible, patient, responsive and willing to help because Greg is truly the best of the best! We had 150 guests, which is pretty much the max capacity for this venue but I managed to come up with a design that was comfortable, even with needing to implement our rain plan. The inside of the home is gorgeous, so I highly recommend having an indoor/outdoor cocktail hour before the reception if your plans allow for it. That way, the guests are able to enjoy all that this beautiful venue has to offer. Greg, thank you again for a perfect, memorable day! This would not have been possible without all of your help!

We LOVED our wedding reception at Haywood Hall. Although it rained almost the whole night, we were prepared thanks to the groundskeeper, Greg. We had 104 guests, so we rented the 40x40 tent for dinner/dancing/bar and the 20x20 tent for the buffet/gift table. The gazebo was lit up that night, so when it stopped raining my husband and I jumped in there and get a few photos. The price was amazing for being so close to downtown Raleigh and we were allowed to bring our own alcohol, which also saved us a lot of money!
