This venue is gorgeous!! The food is quite expensive, and if you book it for reception you have to buy their food, so we are using it for ceremony only and doing the reception at my home church so that we get the beautiful pictures at the nice venue and then can do the reception elsewhere. The venue does not need much dressing up, which is nice, and no lighting since there are so many big tall beautiful windows lining the room and it is a day wedding. There are white curtains they can put up in various ways that are very pretty but we thought it an expensive unnecessary addition since we are only using it for ceremony. People to work with were not always super prompt and it was initially confusing which of two people we were working with, but over all it was good. No sound system is built in so you need to pay extra or have a DJ bring equipment or something for microphones even just for the pastor.

We were 100% happy with our wedding at he Cotton Room! Everything was done beautifully and professionally, and our guests complimented us all night on the food, service, and decor. We had a June wedding, and the room looked light, airy, and summery. Our coordinator, Shelley Clayton, did an amazing job making sure everything ran smoothly before and during the wedding. She accommodated all of our requests with no problem, and made sure we had a fun, stress-free time at our wedding.

We absolutely loved our venue, The Cotton Room. Its exposed brick, wooden columns, giant windows, and beautiful hardwood floors make for amazing scenery and hopefully amazing photos. Our coordinator Shelley was incredibly helpful and delivered everything we asked for. The menu, handled by Triangle Catering, was amazing. We're still getting compliments on our food, our party, our drinks - everything! This venue has all that you need so it makes a great one-stop shopping experience. All you do is book the venue and right away you have catering, linens, tables, chairs, flatware, and alcohol managed. The price will vary depending on the time of day, day of the week, and menu/booze options - the end result was worth every penny.

The Cotton Room is ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR!!! The venue itself is gorgeous with exposed brick, high ceilings, and wooden pillars. The food is SUPERB and all of our guests commented on how delicious everything was! Additionally since all the catering is done in house, it greatly streamlines the planning process. However, by far the greatest asset of the Cotton Room is their wedding coordinators, who facilitate the planning process, all setup and decoration, and execution on the day of the wedding. Michelle, who coordinated our wedding, is THE BEST!!!! She helped us plan our entire wedding and made sure everything was beautifully arranged on the day of our wedding. Furthermore, she's super flexible and easily adapts to difficult situations!! She was there the whole time and made sure everything was exactly as we envisioned! Michelle truly made our wedding special and completely stress-free! A HUGE THANK YOU to The Cotton Room and Michelle for a FANTASTIC experience!

Our wedding at The Cotton Room was 1 week ago today and it was PERFECT! Michelle Aldred and her amazing staff made our day more special than I could ever have imagined. I was overwhelmed at the thought of planning a wedding and waited months before deciding to do anything. Once we visited and saw The Cotton Room, we knew it was THE venue for us. From that point on, everything was so easy and fell right in to place. Every single guest ranted & raved about how beautiful everything was and how delicious the food was. We could not be more pleased with our decision to have our special day in this gorgeous space. Michelle was also super quick to reply anytime I had a question and was very helpful every step of the way. The day went off without a hitch! It actually went by so fast, I wish we could go back and do it all over again! I would highly recommend booking The Cotton Room for your wedding or any other special event!

Ps. ALL of the food is superb, but the pork puppies are ridiculously good and we had the Asian scallop spoons and I literally (and not exaggerating!) ate about 8 of them myself! You just can't go wrong with any of the available food options!

The Cotton Room did an amazing job for our wedding! Amalia was very helpful with everything from the floor plan down to helping me establish a timeline for the big day. Emails were always responded to within 2 business days. I arranged all of my flowers (fresh flowers) for the wedding and she allowed me to bring the centerpieces the day before which helped me out a lot since I live in Raleigh and was getting my hair done in Louisburg the next day. Our wedding was at 11:30am and she was there before 6:30am. She helped keep us on schedule even during pre-season pics, which is hard to do with a wedding party of 20. And our wedding actually started on time! The food was beyond delicious, especially the donut flambe station. We received so many compliments on not only the food, decor, and drinks, but the service as well. The biggest thing is that there was a wedding there later that day after ours and they didn't make us feel rushed at all when our event ended.

My husband and I had our wedding on January 3rd, 2015 and could not have asked for a better venue and experience. We worked directly with Shelley Clayton and she made sure every little thing I requested, big or small, was taken care of. The venue is beautiful and and makes for such beautiful pictures. The food and drinks were amazing. We had so many compliments on how delicious everything was. Our wedding was rather large (240 people) so I was nervous about the timeliness of dinner being served, however The Cotton Room did an incredible job and the food was served promptly. Having their own catering in house made it so much easier for me as the bride (all flatware, dinner plates, barware, etc was included) and the food is much fresher when cooked on location. I would 100% recommend The Cotton Room to anyone looking for a wedding venue.

The Cotton Room was AMAZING. Hands down best vendor choice of my wedding. From day 1 of planning to the final night before their planning and expertise was calming and professional. Each planning session fell at a logical time and got the appropriate amount done. We had a brunch wedding and not only was the value incredible, the lighting and venue was perfect. Lots of people told us it was the most beautiful wedding they'd ever been to. Also, the mango mimosas were delicious - as was all the food. Amalia was our wedding planner, and she knows her stuff. Plus she still loves planning it with you, its the right balance between professional and objective with having a friend's opinion. You can't go wrong with the Cotton Room.
