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 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!

Haywood Hall has so much charm, I immediately knew we had to get married there! The location also sold me... it is downtown, right near the capitol (so make sure to take some pictures there!). We used it as our ceremony and reception venue, which helps with costs. It's such a beautiful house inside and outside. I loved getting ready upstairs while seeing all of the guests arrive for our wedding through the windows :) We had the reception outside in the garden area, but we made sure guests visited the inside of the house (since it's a museum)... we had a fruit and cheese station inside, as well as a place for the guest book and gifts. They have recently installed more lighting outside which makes it look even more beautiful at night! It is very do it yourself, so be prepared to spend $$$ on rentals and lots of time deciding everything else.

It was such a delight to have our wedding and reception at Haywood Hall! The grounds are well kept and beautiful. Greg, the house manager, is incredibly great to work with. He was always available to answer any questions and provide advice from the get-go. He emailed me pictures of weddings they've had at Haywood around the same time of year as mine, so I knew what to expect with the changing of the leaves in the Fall. One regret I have, was not having enough lighting in the gardens so my guests could see once the sun went down. We had our tent very well lit, but not enough lighting outside of it. We also had to do our rehearsal in the dark because Greg could not be there to keep the lights on infront of the house, so that was very difficult. Regardless, Haywood Hall is a great venue to have a wedding, reception, or party. I will always recommend it to anyone!!

We had our September wedding at Haywood Hall, and it was such a wonderful experience! Our wedding had only 50 guests, so the venue was intimate and the perfect place. My husband and I loved that we could pick our own caterer and bring our own alcohol.

Greg, the site manager, bent over backwards to assist with the wedding. He was very responsive and flexible. Overall, the experience was great and I'd recommend Haywood Hall as a wedding venue to anyone looking for a cozy, outdoor wedding!

Beautiful historic home right on the edge of downtown Raleigh. I wanted my friends and family from all over the country to be right in the heart of my hometown and I got what I wanted! The site manager is super friendly (SUPER friendly... he will absolutely talk your ear off) but was very laid back so we got to do pretty much whatever we wanted. Our wedding was extremely low-key and we barely needed any decorations because the grounds are stunning. I would absolutely do it again - but I would rent fans! It got HOT outside!

Loved Haywood Hall as our ceremony/reception site! One downside I would give this place is that it does not have much of a space for rain. We thought we had a plan for our wedding of 110 people, but if we had had the ceremony under the tent (the same area as our reception site) it would have been a tight fit. The cost of Haywood Hall can add up fast since we had to rent several tents (for fear of rain that day) all of our chairs, tables, linens etc. We also had to make sure it was all cleaned up ourselves...when you rent here mostly all you get it the space, nothing comes with it. I hired a coordinator for the day of who set things up for me and cleaned up that night, so that made it easier. You can hire anyone you want as a caterer so that offset some cost and you can bring your own alcohol, so that helped justify the price as well. It would have been even easier to do the reception at a place that did full service catering, but I feel like a lot of the charm of the house was worth the work involved. Also, Greg was so so great to work with. He really loves what he does at Haywood Hall and always happy to answer emails, lets you visit and check out the space and even will give tips of his own as he has seen lots of weddings done at this venue. Some things are a little odd-our receipt for the balance paid was just a letterhead with a handwritten letter that said we were paid plus a follow-up email that could be used as our receipt, didn’t look very official, but since there were no problems it never became an issue. Greg even called a few days before the wedding when it looked as if it may rain to make sure that I had a rain plan that worked. He was able to recommend what tents I should get and even was willing to call the company himself to make sure I got what I needed. He even let us come by the day after the wedding to get our leftover cake!! I would recommend this place for sure if you are willing to spend some money on rentals. they do book fast!
