  • Not only is the Rand-Byran House a beautiful venue with multiple options for a ceremony or reception, it's owners are top notch! Martha Liles, owner/manager of the venue, is organized and cares about the details. As a planner, I want the best for my couples- and this venue delivered. Martha worked with me to ensure the floor plan for my couple's reception was executed perfectly. She made suggestions on how to best utilize the reception space and gave advice on cocktail hour setup. In addition, she helped me coordinate a surprise carriage ride for the couple during the cocktail hour. Mr. Robert Liles was on site the day of the reception for questions, assistance with table moves, and as an additional contact for our reception vendors. In addition, Mrs. Wanda was on site to assist with any details- even lending a hand with the lighting of multiple tea lights and votives to bring the event space to life. Having held numerous events at the venue, Martha has worked with many vendors... Read more

  • The Rand-Bryan house was a perfect choice for us in deciding on a venue for our wedding. We were looking for a more intimate and green space that had beautiful options both outside and inside. We actually had some spotty rain during the day of and decided to move the ceremony inside while keeping the reception outside under the covered tent. Martha and Audrey helped us transition inside smoothly and efficiently, keeping our nerves down and keeping us on schedule. It definitely helps that the inside facilities at Rand-Bryan are just as beautiful as the outside landscape. Despite the complications and last minute change-ups, we were incredibly happy with how everything turned out! Highly recommend considering Rand-Bryan for your special day.

    After all the Covid stress and delay, we were so happy for you to have such a delightful wedding day.....in spite of a few rain drops! You two, your vendors and your wedding party were a great team that we enjoyed being a part of. Best wishes!

  • We moved to North Carolina in March 2020 and were married at Rand Bryan House June 19, 2021. We knew no one here to get referrals from and we’re planning our wedding during the pandemic. Which added additional challenges of course. We visited 3 other venues recommended from the wedding websites prior to visiting here. When we met with Martha and her daughter, we just knew that was the place for us. We wanted an elegant, yet simple ceremony and reception (we are not big ballroom type of people). Her property is so beautiful and we could not say enough great things about Martha. She answered all of my questions quickly and thoroughly, and believe me I had a lot of them being a first time bride. She met with us on several occasions to help us walk through what our perfect day would look like. Martha is gracious, kind, patient, personable and very experienced. Since we were new to North Carolina, she gave us recommendations for our caterer, rental company, bartending service, florist... Read more

  • This venue was perfect for my daughter’s small-ish wedding. Weather kept us from using any of the beautiful outdoor spaces (disappointing), but Martha was able to seamlessly flip the indoor spaces between ceremony and reception and it turned out beautifully! She was such a pleasure to work with and had great recommendations for a caterer and florist. Would definitely recommend the Rand-Bryan!

    Thanks for sharing your comments about our venue. It was such a pleasure working with you and your family to plan a beautiful wedding. Let’s hope that old saying is true about rain on a wedding day bringing good luck!

  • My husband and I can't speak more highly of the everyone at the Rand-Bryan House! COVID-19 forced us to revamp our entire wedding plan and Martha helped us every step of the way to make those changes as painless and seamless as possible. She gave us plenty of options to choose how we wanted to proceed and guided us in that decision-making. We were able to have a beautiful, socially distanced small wedding on the gorgeous property on our original day and are looking forward to being able to have our larger party/reception there next year!

    What a pleasure it has been getting to know you two and seeing you celebrate your marriage in a beautiful fall ceremony (in spite of Covid)! Looking forward to your 2021 reception.

  • The Rand Bryan House was a beautiful, romantic, quaint, and very intimate wedding venue. The staff are very professional and help with any questions you may have. They want your day to perfect and stress free, so they are great at making sure details are covered. Would recommend to anyone looking for a wedding venue.

    Thank you! We so enjoyed the planning process with you and Charles (and Rosemary). Y'all had such a fun group! So glad you enjoyed it and had such a pretty December day.

  • Our experience with The Rand-Bryan House began when our original indoor wedding venue cancelled due to the pandemic. We were two months out from our wedding date and were scrambling to find an outdoor venue that was available on the date we already had set and was still within our budget. My mom came across Rand-Bryan and by some miracle, they had our date available! After our first walk-through, we knew it would be a perfect fit. The house is beautiful, but what really struck us was the vast open fields surrounding it and Martha! The venue owner/coordinator, Martha, was so sweet and extremely helpful throughout the entire process of re-planning our entire wedding in such a short amount of time. She helped guide us through various options and provided recommendations for rentals, catering, and helped us find an available officiant when ours was no longer available. Not only did Martha help us re-plan once, but TWICE! The day before our wedding we had to make adjustments again but she h... Read more

  • The Rand Bryan House was the perfect atmosphere for our ceremony. We were looking for rustic elegance and found that and more here. The grounds are beautiful, warm and welcoming and the home inside is as equally pleasing. Most important was how helpful the owner was from start to finish. Martha kept an eye on details and was very responsive to our barrage of questions particularly when Covid interrupted our plans. She and Audrey were very flexible and helped create a very special and intimate ceremony, despite Covid and a monsoon on our wedding day. We would highly recommend the Rand Bryan House!

    You two were just meant to be! We have loved getting to know you through all the planning and replanning of your wedding. In spite of Covid's interference and the pouring rain, it was a beautiful celebration. Best wishes!

  • Audrey and Martha were nothing short of amazing while helping us plan our big day amid a pandemic. While we weren't able to hold the large event we had planned, we were more than catered to ensuring we still had our special day. We couldn't be more grateful for the professionalism and support we received throughout the entire process. We were accommodated to hold a reception next year with absolutely no hassle and could not be happier with our choice of a venue! Not the mention, the grounds and the house are absolutely beautiful! We barely had to order any extra decorations which was a huge plus. We would recommend this venue ten times over!

    You guys are the best! We're so happy that you could have your ceremony on a beautiful day surrounded by your special friends and family. Looking forward to part 2 of the celebration in 2021!

  • We had set our eyes on The Rand-Bryan House many years ago. Never imagined the day that our dream venue would actually come true. We hosted an intimate wedding reception for about 80 people and (about 60 showed) It was perfect! Magical and a romantic atmosphere! Our family and friends loved the breathtaking grounds. The kids enjoyed running around the lawns outside being kids, taking in the night sky and the string lights surrounding the windows with the beautiful view. Guests enjoyed the wrap around porch and the rocking chairs. Mrs. Martha (the owner) was amazing and a pleasure to work with. We were able to stay within our budget because she allowed us much flexibility. We were able to make it very personal to us, by being able to choose our own caterer and other vendors. Unlike other venues that are more restrictive. It was a perfect fall day. Writing this makes me emotional, remembering how beautiful of a day it was! Everything was breathtaking! We received so many compliments, du... Read more

  • We would absolutely recommend the Rand-Bryan House for your wedding or event location. This was the first location I found online in the area when researching online, but looked at a couple of different options (everyone said to look at least a few places) before deciding to go visit this particular location in person. I am so glad we visited and decided to have our wedding at this venue. It is so beautiful and has plenty of charm. The natural beauty outside and multiple spaces you could hold the ceremony and reception were a plus and Martha, the owner, sealed the deal for us as she was incredibly helpful from day one through the conclusion of the reception. Her and her daughter, Audrey, were professional, welcoming, helpful, and truly a pleasure to work with. You can not beat the value you get with this location. We got so lucky with a venue that went above and beyond throughout the planning, rehearsal, and wedding day process as they made sure to assist with decorating, directing, a... Read more

  • We looked at several venues before choosing the Rand-Bryan house, but ended up being won over by it's combination of rustic charm and classy elegance. I'm so glad that we chose Rand-Bryan. In the end, not only did the venue live up to all it promised aesthetically, but the connections and advice of Martha (Manager/Owner) proved invaluable. She was able to connect us with several vendors who were lovely and knew the space well, and allowed us to plan our unforgettable day and evening easily. Thank you Martha for helping us make our wedding one of a kind and unforgettable. We could not have done it without you!

    Thanks so much for your comments! From the first contact when I met your mother, all through getting to know you and Jazmine, it was a blast. We're so happy you are pleased with your unforgettable day!

  • The original date for the wedding was May 2020. However, due to COVID that date was postponed. (Something not all venues will allow) The reception was then rescheduled for October 2020. We didn't know it at the time when we booked the venue how lucky we were to have a place that would offer such flexibility to accommodate guests during COVID. (The wedding ceremony did not take place at the Rand Bryan House, but it would have been very easy to do- we had the reception only there.) We were able to place tables indoors and outdoors allowing everyone to spread out. (We had a rain plan as well and the large covered porch can offer great protection in case of rain) The front porch was also great for a sweetheart table! It very spacious for rain or shine! The large room with all the windows was a great place for the ceremonial dances because guests could line up outside at a safe distance and see everything. There were people inside too, it just offered a really nice way for people to be spre... Read more
