Raleigh Wedding Reception

 Your wedding reception is a celebration of one of the biggest moments in your life – of course you want to make it memorable!  Raleigh offers a lovely selection of wedding reception venues, choosing just the perfect one is the difficult part.  Before you begin your search, decide if your ceremony and reception will be held at the same location and determine approximately how many guests you’re expecting.  Now browse a few of the most popular sites for Raleigh wedding receptions.

The vibrant eight acre JC Raulston Arboretum is maintained by North Carolina State University and offers a variety of outdoor garden settings for your wedding and reception.  Hold an amazing reception amid the A.E.
