Party On… and On!

Wedding venues are usually booked by brides and grooms at least 1 year prior to the actual wedding date.  It is the first vendor that is sought after since having the perfect place to say “I Do” is sometimes the most important.  Not to say other vendors aren’t important, there is just usually some wiggle room with timing to book those folks.  When a couple gets engaged the wedding becomes the focus for all those that are close to the soon-to-be bride and groom.  But the wedding is not the only celebration to plan!  Brides (and sometimes couples) have showers, brunches and let’s not forget the most important of the celebrations – Rehearsal Dinner Parties!!

Finding a great spot to congregate with your closest guests should be almost as important as the venue where you say “I Do”.  Not only do you want a space to enjoy some great food, but a place to enjoy merriment and fellowship with your guests as well.  And it MUST be a place that reflects to your guests the type of couple that you are.  Kicking off a wedding weekend the right way ensures that you and all of your guests will have a blast celebrating your nuptials all weekend long.

The venue we provide at Rural Hill has a caterer’s kitchen that your caterer will love – so bring in your favorite one!  We’ve also got a great sound system in our main hall that is perfect for guests giving toasts and music throughout the evening.  A large drop-down projection screen is ideal for playing those wonderfully embarrassing slide shows of the bride and groom from birth to wedding date.  And if you want the party to continue after the meal in done, stay awhile with your open bar to mix and mingle… maybe even have us create a bonfire outdoors for marshmallow roasting!

Renting a venue for a rehearsal dinner is becoming more and more popular.  This way you are not forced into choosing a space you love and having to commit to a menu that you don’t love.  You choose the venue and bring in the food you love and can afford.  Best of both worlds.  Period.

And of course let’s not forget that if you do need a place to host a bridal or couple’s shower, or that perfect brunch to celebrate the happy couple – we’ve got the space for you and your crew!

“Farm-to-Table” Rehearsal Dinner

The ever so popular, healthy and delicious way of eating fresh local foods is making a break-through in wedding foods and rehearsal dinners.  The support-the-local-farmer movement is ever rising in restaurants and with caterers nation wide giving brides many farm-to-fork options when choosing the meals they’ll offer their guests on that Big Day.  Not only do you want your wedding and rehearsal dinner guests to remember all the details that you poured your blood, sweat and tears into, you want your special weekend to show your guests who you are as a newly united couple.

Imagine the “wow” you can expect from your rehearsal dinner guests as they pull up to Rural Hill’s 265-acre farm and seat themselves in our beautiful Cultural Center venue for a farm-to-table meal from your favorite caterer that, like you,  supports the local food movement.  Trendy restaurants can certainly provide a great place for gathering all of your closest friends and family members the night before you say “I Do”, however, why not give them the opportunity to step back in time and enjoy the history, beauty and serenity that Rural Hill can offer?  Show them the Piedmont North Carolina that existed 250 years ago – because it still exists here.  And what better way to say “I support local…”?
