  • We chose The Sutherland instantly after looking at a few other vendors in the area. It is an absolutely stunning property and they have been doing weddings for quite a while so have it down to a science. I could not have picked a better venue and Christy our wedding planner was amazing. She went above and beyond on everything that I asked of her. She seriously made the wedding be better than my wildest dreams. If you are looking for a venue that is seamless and has it all, The Sutherland is what you are looking for. They know all the best vendors and know how to pull off a great party for your guests and ensure that you have the best time. And let's not forget that it is the most stunning property in all of Raleigh.

  • When we first visited the Sutherland as a possible venue, we were greeted by Christy Ethridge who would show us around. The presentation was awesome. Her attention to detail was amazing to say the least. She guided my daughter and wife through every aspect of the event and provided a level of unparalleled professionalism. Do things happen throughout planning a wedding? Obviously, do you want someone like Christy by your side when those things pop up? ABSOLUTELY. Throughout our experience I believe my wife, daughter, son-in-law and I established a very personal relationship with Christy and we now consider her a close friend :-) Very OUTSTANDING JOB Sutherland!

  • The Sutherland made the wedding planning process a hundred times easier. Christy was so organized and made sure that everything was done. She was so great at giving advice and really listening to Sid and I! The Sutherland is a perfect backdrop for a wedding and all of the vendors associated make it the perfect venue. My wedding was the best day of my life, I cannot recommend the Sutherland enough!

  • Our wedding day was freezing and raining and still so magical. The Sutherland was the perfect venue. Christy, our coordinator, made the move to an inside ceremony so painless and simple. We didn’t have to do anything; the Sutherland staff handled everything. Planning was a dream. Christy walked us through everything to make it as painless as possible. Even wet, the grounds were gorgeous.

  • I had fallen in love with The Sutherland years before I was ever engaged from when my cousin was married there several years ago, so when it came time for my now husband and I to book a venue, I knew right where to start. Not only is it a stunning property, but the customer service we received throughout our whole planning process helped us be sure it was the perfect venue for us. Christy was our wedding planner and she couldn't be more amazing! She was very accommodating with us since we live out of town and had to plan a lot of things remotely. I am also a very detail-oriented person, and even when I was blowing her inbox up with questions or multiple emails at a time, she was always sure to address my every question in a very timely manner which made me feel at ease with the whole planning process. There were even small details on the day of that I hadn't even thought of or expressed how I wanted it to look, but Christy and her team went above and beyond and everything turned out pe...

  • We could not have been happier that we chose to have our wedding reception at The Sutherland!! The venue had the beautiful indoor and outdoor space we were looking for. Christy was our planner and we never doubted for a second that the wedding day would run smoothly with her there and it 100% did! She even contacted all of my vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page on how the day would go. The Sutherland staff were all wonderful! I couldn’t have had the wedding of my dreams if it wasn’t for this fabulous venue and their staff!

  • We used Christy Ethridge as our wedding planner and she was amazing! Her patience, kindness and attention to detail were much needed in order to make our day happen. Christy knows how to control a crowd, juggle everything thrown at her and roll with the punches. It doesn't hurt that her knowledge of other vendors in the Triangle area is extensive and super helpful when figuring out who to use as well. Our wedding day was amazing and Christy was a huge part of making that happen! Thank you Christy... if you need someone to help you plan your wedding she is the one for you!

  • Stunning and beautiful The Sutherland was a wonderful and unforgettable location for my daughter’s wedding. Our event planner Christy was there to organize and keep everything and everyone together every step on the day. A beautiful memory in an exceptional location- what more could you ask for!

  • Ashlee has taken her experience with planning and design on the road with Sutherland Services. I did not have to worry about anything with her taking the lead, she had thought of and planned for everything! It was so nice to completely relax the day of our wedding, because we trusted Ashlee with it all, and she did not let us down!

  • We chose the Sutherland for many reasons, but what initially drew us to the property was it's location. The Sutherland happens to be right next door (and I mean right.next.door) to my home church that I grew up in, Wake Union Baptist Church! We had heard wonderful things about the Sutherland and their staff, but we were blown away by the impeccable service they had to offer. When we toured the property, we fell in love and had no doubt in our mind that it was the perfect place to host our loved ones and begin our journey as husband and wife. And we were right. Christy was our planner for our wedding and she was beyond amazing! I could go on and on about how incredible the staff and Christy were, but there's no better way to describe it than this: After the wedding, my bridal bouquet went missing...which wouldn't have been the worst thing in the world, but my late grandfather's dog tag was attached. Christy and her team were determined to find and it literally got inside the dumpsters (... Read more

  • By far the best decision in my wedding planning process was choosing The Sutherland as our venue! Christy Ethridge was kind, talented, encouraging, and extremely organized. I can't imagine pulling all the details together for our day without her help and guidance. The mix of indoor and outdoor settings for the ceremony and reception was perfect for our early Spring wedding; the house and gardens are so naturally pretty that it's a great venue for any season of the year. I cannot recommend this venue enough!

  • Absolutely beautiful venue! We loved the Walled Garden and the fact that it had turf so guests could walk comfortably, no bugs, and great landscaping so minimal decorating would need to be done. The thing we loved was the air-conditioned pavilion was large enough for a big crowd, had rustic architecture and ceilings, with doors that could be fully opened. The grounds are kept pristine, the house for getting ready was so pretty and their are chairs and tables included in the cost (to a limit). With a big Indian-Christian wedding they were helpful in making sure we were able to accommodate traditional foods and customs for our guests. The wine tastings and other events were a great way to test out their offerings and meet more of their team!

  • My husband and I got married 3/30/2019 and we were very happy with The Sutherland. Christy was amazing and helped keep me calm and everything in order. She was always professional and personable and handled our planning very well. Because of HER, our wedding was everything we hoped for. It is a little pricey but well worth the cost. We recommend 100%

  • We were married at The Sutherland on 3/2/19 and couldn't be happier with our decision to host our event here! The space was perfect for what we wanted- an outdoor ceremony (with gorgeous backup weather plan), dedicated cocktail hour space and dreamy reception space. We've received so many compliments from guests about the venue's beauty, functionality and historical story. What really sealed the deal choosing The Sutherland was working with onsite event producer, Christy. She was with us every step of the way and we couldn't have planned our wedding without her! Even more impressive was Christy's flawless execution of our vision on our wedding day. Christy and her team were attentive, supportive and from our perspective the day went off without a hitch! My family can't stop raving about working with The Sutherland team through our wedding day.
