We highly recommend the Highgrove Estate! Everything exceeded our expectations- the easy planning, exceptional food, attentive staff, and beautiful setting. Highgrove had great recommendations of vendors which made planning enjoyable and easy. On the big day, even the smallest of details were taken care of. We received numerous compliments from family and friends. Also, we can’t say enough about Abby Coleman, our wedding coordinator. She was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond!

My husband and I were lucky enough to get married at The Highgrove this past weekend. It was truly a dream from start to finish. We first met with Susan, who is an absolute delight to work with. She answered all my questions in a very timely manner with detail and warmth. Our wedding day coordinator, Angela, was fun, calm, well-prepared, and from the moment I met her, I trusted her to organize our special day without hesitation (which is saying a lot coming from a perfectionist!). The food was incredible, and I received many complements from wedding guests. I would highly recommend attending the caterer tasting during the season of your wedding, not only is it a blast but it will give you an idea of how delicious the food will be! Their list of vendors led us in the right direction every time. I could not be happier with The Highgrove, and would HIGHLY recommend this venue to any bride!!

Highgrove is amazing! My husband and I recently had the pleasure of getting married at Highgrove and I am so glad we did! Both of us are from Upstate New York and fell in love with North Carolina from the moment we moved here. Seeing that 95% of our guest list were from New York, we wanted to give them a taste of OUR home and Highgrove did exactly that. From the amazing staff (especially Susan and Abby!), to the location, drinks and food, Highgrove is the best of the best! Susan and Abby both worked with us and were flexible with special requests we had. They were quick to respond to any questions we had and helped steer us in the right direction when we were in doubt. Our big day ran smoothly and was perfect down to the last detail. I highly, highly recommend getting the Chicken and Waffles station--it was a huge hit with our NYers and is one of my favorite things there! Everyone kept complimenting us on how beautiful Highgrove was and how it was truly a Southern wedding! I can't think of a better location and even better staff! We wish we could relive that amazing day at Highgrove! Thank you again!

What a wonderful way to celebrate a marriage by having it at Highgrove. We were so pleased with the complete package. The staff, food & location can not be matched. Abby Coleman was wonderful and make everything seem easy. We loved having Abby are our Wedding Coordinator. Highgrove made the Bride feel like she was in a magical world and she was Cinderella for the day. Thank you for providing such an wonderful experience.

My husband and I had the honor and pleasure of getting married at Highgrove on September 14, 2014. We knew it would be beautiful but Highgrove far exceeded our expectations! We were cared for starting the first day we walked in and took a tour. Every day thereafter got better. Highgrove invited us to a tasting so that we may pick our menu, allowed us to bring family to see the venue, sent us to an amazing bakery (Sweet Memories Bakery), recommended outstanding vendors, and provided us with a wedding coordinator (Abby!). Abby was outstanding! When I arrived the day of the wedding she had already started decorating the house with our personal affects and it all looked wonderful -- I was so busy with other things that I didn't even need to worry about that aspect. Our entire day was effortless and gorgeous. Everything we wanted for our special day and our closest family and friends. We received endless compliments from our guests at how spectacular the venue was in every detail. We HIGHLY recommend Highgrove!

Where to begin? First of all, I booked with them later than most brides and thank God they had an opening! Because of the shorter timeline I was a tad bit nervous on whether I could get everything done (planned a wedding in five months minus studying for the bar over the summer). However, Highgrove made everything soooo easy! They have a list of preferred vendors that are legit vendors...they don't just put them on there because they are pricier or they have some secret deal going on...the vendors are actually the best and have great prices (I checked around). Susan will work with you on getting everything set up prior to the wedding. I can't tell you how many times I e-mailed her to stop by to look at something or ask some random question. She was always so polite and friendly. The day of the wedding was so wonderful. I worked with Abby who is fantastic. She put everyone at ease and really made sure everything was going according to plan. The staff members on the day of the wedding were awesome. I even forgot to ask one of my guests if their gluten allergy was just an intolerance or a legitimate allergy and well it ended up being the latter. Thankfully, Highgrove made a meal for her on the fly. They were just wonderful all around. I can also speak to the elegance and beauty of the venue, but I think you will want to see that for yourself...pictures don't do it justice. If you are looking for a venue that has an outdoorsy feel with a touch of elegance then this is the place for you! Thanks Highgrove!

Highgrove was the absolute perfect place for my dream wedding. Susan was so helpful from the start when my mom and I went to look at Highgrove. We loved it so much that we signed the contract that day, and the planning process after that was so smooth. Our coordinator Abby was such a joy to work with and made planning the day and carrying out the day stress-free for me. Unfortunately we had rain all day on the day of the wedding, and it did not let up enough to have the ceremony outside. Abby was great about coming upstairs to give me updates and let me make the decision to move it inside 20 minutes before the ceremony was supposed to start. Once I made the decision, everyone started the process to move the guests inside the ball room where it was already set up for an indoor ceremony just in case. Although I would have liked to have it outside, my guests keep commenting on how beautiful the ceremony was and that it was just perfect. The guests are raving over how wonderful the food was, how gorgeous the ballroom is (especially the lights in the ceiling), and how much fun they had. Also, the house is just beautiful and it was a wonderful space for everyone to get ready. In addition, the service that Highgrove provided for the wedding party and for coordinating with my vendors was exceptional. Highgrove made mine and my husband's wedding day so wonderful and I wish we could do it all over again! Thank you Susan, Abby, and the whole team at Highgrove for all you did to make the planning process and the wedding day flow smoothly!!
