1705 East

This gorgeous wedding venue is located right outside of downtown Raleigh. It’s a restored Southern home. Inside is a renovated contemporary and upscale setting for your ceremony or reception. It has plenty of parking for your guests and is relatively easy for anybody to get to regardless what side of Raleigh you’re on.


Some of the things that are available/included are in-house tables, chairs and chinaware. Meaning you don’t need to rent dinnerware to feed your guests unless you don’t like what they have to over.
Full audio visual packages so that you can show off your engagement video during the reception! (I offer video packages as well). On-site kitchen and catering provided by Rocky Top Catering. Your food will be hot, and freshly cooked. No need to fret on whether the food will lose it’s flavor in transit to your event. I’m always a stickler for this and that’s free on-site parking. Well not necessarily free but onsite parking. Thankfully even though this venue is downtown, there’s plenty of parking to go around. Event design and vendor coordination is available upon request.

Another aspect of 1705 East which makes it an ideal wedding venue is the private bridal wedding suite. This means that you can arrive to your wedding early and grab great getting ready shots without having to worry about timelines and transportation. This can get a little hairy at times and leaves room for error.


This venue offers several ceremony and location options while boasting a gorgeous industrial chic front on one side and a classic colonial exterior styled house on the other.

The capital room accommodates up to 260 seated, 325 standing

The Rutherford room accommodates up to 72 seated, 100 standing this is versatile room and can be divided into two smaller rooms, each accommodating up to 36 seated, 50 standing
