  • Vicki and the entire Rocky Top staff went above and beyond to make sure our day was everything we dreamed of which it was AND MORE! The venue itself is breathtaking but what really makes it so great is how the staff makes you feel from the time you book with them until after. The day of you are their number one priority and they make sure everything goes exactly how it should. The food was delicious and we received so many compliments about it. We could not be happier with choosing Vicki, rocky top and the 1705 team for our dream wedding!

  • I'm so glad my husband and I chose 1705 East for our wedding venue. The location was easily accessible for family members from across the state. The simplicity of the grounds and space were perfect to ensure all guests could fully participate regardless of mobility limitations. Kayla was a gift to work with both during planning and on the day-of. Couldn't have made our wedding dream a reality without the 1705 East team!

  • This venue is perfect because it will save you a lot of time planning. The venue offers a convenient location in Raleigh, catering, management, and bar services all in one package to make it a one stop shop. Choosing this venue made our lives a million times easier to plan our special day. So do yourself a favor to eliminate the inevitable wedding day stress and choose 1705 because they will provide an unforgettable experience for you and your guests by offering you everything beyond anything you could dream. I want to genuinely take the time out to thank Rocky Top and 1705 East for their hospitality and service. The staff and management go above and beyond to fulfill any requests in a expeditious manner before, during, and after your event. All of my guests genuinely enjoyed their food and warm welcome from the staff. In fact, the groom and I are still hearing about how amazing our guests experience were weeks later. Our wedding has been acclaimed the wedding of the year thanks... Read more

  • I loved that we had our wedding at 1705 East! They made some beautiful renovations since we last saw the space. The staff (Rocky Mountain Catering) were fabulous and very focused on attention to detail. The only downside is that there is no restroom upstairs but not a deal breaker. I highly recommend this space for your wedding.

  • 1705 East was everything we could have ever imagined! The venue is absolutely gorgeous and comes at an absolute steal of a price! Kayla, manager of 1705 East is so sweet and helpful. Nothing came as a “surprise” during the planning. Everything was very straight forward and transparent. We got so many complements on our venue after the wedding! Oh and ladies, the bridal suite is everything you’ve ever dreamed of... gorgeous, elegant, comfortable! 😍

  • We were very pleased with our wedding at 1705 East. Samantha was very responsive to our questions and helped us plan exactly what we wanted. 1705 was very flexible with our wishes and accommodated our many changes throughout the process. Samantha was very upfront with the pricing before we signed a contract and there were no hidden fees or surprises. The renovations are beautiful. The space is large and and it was lovely to have the entire venue to ourselves. The best part of 1705 East is the food! We received so many compliments and our guests told us repeatedly it was the best wedding food they'd ever had. We looked at a lot of venues and 1705 by far provides the best value for your money in the Triangle. We strongly recommend 1705 East for any couple looking for a wedding venue.

  • The staff at 1705 East was spectacular. They were friendly, helpful, and made sure we were happy the whole time. The food was out of this world delicious. We had the bubbly bar (a must have!) it was so delightful. The venue itself is a stunning! The bridal suite was a dream. I felt like a princess bride. There are so many picture opportunities. There was plenty of room so no one felt cramped, but everyone was still able to enjoy each other. Vicki was my coordinator and she was fabulous. She was always there when I needed her and she made sure that everything was perfect. We are so pleased with 1705. Next big party we throw will be right there!

  • This is a great venue with a very classy and modern look. It is pretty spacious and was maybe a little too big for our 70-guest wedding. It's neutral and doesn't take much decoration to look nice. The bar area was really great for our cocktail hour. We used the front lawn for games during our reception, which was one of the highlights of our day. One problem we had was that there was some confusion about whether we were allowed to use the built-in audio equipment there. One staff member said we could use it with our own device with a playlist, but another staff member said no. This meant that we had to book an audio rental last-minute and spend more money than planned. I do have some significant complaints about their catering company (Rocky Top) but see my separate review on Rocky Top for more about that.

    Hi Abbey! Thank you so much for your review. We enjoyed celebrating your special day with you and apologize that your needs were not able to be met with the limited audio-visual equipment. We hope your guests enjoyed everything, and wish you and Viggy the very best!

  • We LOVED working with 1705. Our big day went perfectly (as far as we know)! It was a huge perk that all linens and everything was included with our rental. We did have to sometimes wait up to a week for an email response but if you call, someone is always willing to help. Highly recommend!

  • I first went for this venue because of the price. I had heard great things about Rocky Top Catering, and the cost of renting this venue was so cheap compared to other venues. Everything about my wedding was a dream. The staff were absolutely amazing and they catered to our every need. They got us food from the buffet and delivered it to us so that we didn't have to get up. They always made sure we had a drink in our hand. Our guests raved about the food as well. They said it was the best wedding they've been to. The venue recently went through some upgrades and it was really beautiful. The pictures that I have seen so far have looked amazing and so beautiful and I can't wait for the rest. I would definitely recommend 1705 East.
