  • Walnut Hill is a dream wedding venue, with an amazing owner. Amanda (owner) was so easy to work with. We were the first couple to book with her and you would have never guessed. She was organized, thoughtful, informational, and so kind. She was more than just the owner of the venue for us, she really gave great ideas for our wedding too. My husband and I saw walnut hill transform from the foundation/construction site to the wonderful venue it is today. I couldn’t have wished for a better place to get married.

  • We are getting married on 9/26/2020 at Walnut Hill. Although our wedding is still 6 months away, we can already tell how beautiful our day will be thanks to this wonderful team. Amanda the owner is accommodating, easygoing and really cares about her couples. There have been a couple instances when I wanted to go check out the venue unexpectedly with my parents while they were in town last minute, and without a doubt Amanda invited us with open arms. The open vendor policy also attracted us to Walnut Hill. We were really able to make this wedding our own and not feel like we were forced to pick from a handful of vendors. This venue has multiple ceremony cites, so you are not limited to where on the property you get married. The classic white barn adds an elegant touch to the property. The bridal suite and groom suite are large with a lot of open light, too. I could go on about this venue but we can't wait for our day and I encourage all brides to book this venue or at least check it out... Read more

  • We loved the venue and the staff! Our day couldn’t have been any more perfect! I would recommend this venue for either an outdoor or an indoor ceremony!

  • BEST.HIDDEN.SECRET. From the second we met Amanda, we fell in love with her family & Walnut Hill. We had a list of venues to visit and Walnut Hill was the first one - we booked our date on the spot (it's that good!). The grounds are stunning and have so many areas for your guests to mingle (adios being stuck at the same table all night) - we had guests gathering in the grass half round by the lake, around the fire pit for a smores bar, and around the barn under their pretty lights. Amanda is a dream to work with - good vibes all the way! Her & her family were more than accommodating with our questions and requests - her dad even drove us to their yurts (which you can rent for the night before!) for our engagement photos. Seriously, we couldn't be happier with our decision - jump on this venue before it's HUGE.

  • Amanda was amazing to work with. We had some issues the day before that were out of everyone's control and Amanda was amazingly flexible and helped us out! The Venue is GORGEOUS and our pictures turned out amazing because of it. They really made our wedding day amazing and we cannot thank them enough! Highly recommend to anyone looking to get married in the triangle area!

  • Walnut Hill is a spectacular venue! Great views with each of its on-site locations. For me, some of the wedding planning stress was alleviated because of how beautiful this venue is. Since most of our guests were from other states and countries, this venue is a great representation of the beauty of North Carolina. The varied backgrounds made for stunning photos, as someone who loves pictures, I am beyond pleased with how they turned out! Access to the farmhouse made getting ready on-site stress-free! My bridal party was able to start the day with an on-site yoga session, and begin into hair and makeup, and the access to the kitchen allowed ease for food and drinks! The groom and his men throughly enjoyed getting ready in their own quarters, air conditioned, with access to the kitchen as well. The Barn Pavilion was perfect spot for dinner and a night of dancing. We ended up having almost 150 guests show up, and there was plenty of room for everyone to comfortably eat and then ... Read more

  • I couldn’t have asked for a better venue. The people there only want you to be happy and have the best day of your life. The fact that you have the whole house to get ready in is one of the best features. We never felt crammed, plenty of space for the bridal parties to get ready and spend the day. And the grounds?? STUNNING. The reception building? So spacious. We got everything we ever wanted at Walnut Hill.

  • I cannot speak highly enough about Walnut Hill, Amanda, and Jacqueline. To be honest, the beauty of the property speaks for itself and I was fortunate enough to secure the venue for my entire wedding weekend, which provided an awesome environment for me to socialize with not only my family, but also my bridesmaids. The venue has a spacious bridal suite, suitable for both hair and makeup as well as a groom's suite situated far enough away from the bridal suite that there was no fear of run-ins. I initially planned to host my wedding outside, but due to a chance of rain, we moved everything inside and it could not have been more beautiful. Amanda and Jacqueline made sure that all of my guests were comfortable and even provided a golf cart shuttle to transport guests from the parking lot to the venue, which was nice for our older guests. Throughout the reception, both of these ladies paid special attention to the bridal party as well as our guests and were so kind. If you want to get marr... Read more

  • I had my wedding in April 2019, and Walnut Hill was the perfect wedding spot. The location is gorgeous, and they have a large farm house that is perfect for prepping in. There were no mosquitos, and the temperature was perfect on our special day. They had an awesome sound system for our DJ, and a large projector. Amanda, Tom, and Lisa (the owners of the location) were super accommodating and responsive to all of our questions. The location is also perfect because it is a) historic, b) in a quiet farm area, c) only a 15 minute drive from Raleigh, and d) across the street from a farm with a few adorable oreo cows (although both properties are so huge that you will probably need to cross the street to be able to glimpse the cows). Overall, my friends and family were really impressed with the whole wedding. I think it was definitely the right choice and will be very memorable to them. The price is a steal too. My one recommendation for anyone planning their wedding is to stay at the... Read more

  • Our son's wedding at Walnut Hill in April was the first to use the new barn wedding venue. We cannot say enough positive things about our experience, and our dealings with Amanda, Tom and Lisa Williamson, the owners of WH. They helped steer us to great wedding planners, a rehearsal dinner site, etc. Because the weather cooperated, we were able to have the ceremony outside in front of the main house in front of the beautiful centuries' old oak tree. The wedding experience comes with a night for the wedding party in the two sections of the main house. There are separate bride and groom quarters, conveniently set up for getting ready for the wedding and taking photographs. The kitchen is fully equipped with plates, glasses, and kitchenware. The house is beautifully decorated, rebuilt on the site of the original 1775 farmhouse. It is surrounded by farms, "Oreo Cows" and "Jerusalem donkeys" across the street in a rural setting that is technically in Raleigh, but really a half hour east of t... Read more

  • We got married at Walnut Hill in May and had an absolutely incredible experience. The venue is unreal and Amanda is beyond helpful. It's such a beautiful place and the people make it even better! You can save a ton of money on decorations because the venue is naturally awesome. Definitely get married at Walnut Hill!

  • We were one of the first few weddings at Walnut Hill, and they are already doing such a great job! Not only was the venue exactly what we were looking for style-wise, but Amanda was so easy to work with. We absolutely could not have picked a more perfect and stunning venue for our wedding day. It is the perfect mix of modern-farmhouse, with such a beautiful white barn and plantation house that photograph incredibly. The site also has so many different options for backgrounds in photos which made my bridal portraits and wedding photos so beautiful. We rented the venue for the full weekend, so we were able to have our rehearsal dinner there. After rehearsal, I spent the night with my bridesmaids in the plantation house, which was not only a fun night with my best friends that made me so much more relaxed the night before my wedding, but we also had our hair and makeup artists come in the morning, and since we were already there we didn't have to wake up super early to get to the venue an...

  • We had our wedding at Walnut Hill mid-November 2019. It was absolutely beautiful! Amanda was flexible with us as we waited out the weather to decide if we wanted to have our ceremony indoors or outdoors. We ended up deciding to do outdoors by the pond, and it was absolutely beautiful! Having the fire on outside all day helped keep our guests warm. Walnut Hill is a beautiful venue that I would highly recommend! It was the perfect space for our day, and I’m so glad we stumbled upon this new venue during our wedding planning!

  • Walnut Hill was absolutely the perfect place that I could have gotten married. There is a gazebo over a beautiful, serene green pond where we had the ceremony. The barn made for an amazing reception. We rented the venue for the entire weekend, which I highly recommend. The house on the property was amazing. My bridal party thoroughly enjoyed bonding and hanging out for one last girl’s slumber party the night before the wedding. Getting ready was a breeze. Everyone came to us (hair and makeup). We could go back and forth between the upstairs and downstairs. We would run downstairs to grab a snack or glass of wine and then head back upstairs to get ready where our makeup and hair stylists awaited. Everything was all in one place, which made it super convenient and less stressful on my part. Walnut Hill also has a plethora of places to get amazing photos. We did first look in the garden area in front of the house, formal family photographs at the front of the house, bridal a... Read more

  • We loved getting married at Walnut Hill! We had our ceremony on the lawn outside the farm house and then did our reception in the big barn. The landscaping is beautiful and there was so much space for our guests to look around and mingle. We were worried it might rain, but Amanda reassured us that even if it did rain, we could open up the wall of the barn and do our ceremony under the roof with the beautiful scenery of the flowers and lake behind us. Luckily, the weather was perfect (like mid-70s in June?!?) and we had a wonderful time. We booked this venue before they were even done building the barn, which was definitely a gamble, but after taking a tour even then, we were sold. When the building and landscaping was finished, we were blown away by how great it looked, and our guests were also in love with the space. Having the venue for the weekend was also super nice - we had our (very small) rehearsal dinner in the farm house and got to set up the space the day before instead of wo... Read more
