Blake-Woods Wedding

30 Apr

Meredith Woods and Christopher Blake were married at Haywood Hall earlier this month on April 18.  Their photographer, Robin Lin, did an absolutely amazing job of documenting their wedding day, and she has shared a number of those photographs on her blog

Thanks, Robin.  We enjoyed working with you and hope to see you again soon at Haywood Hall.

That’s right!  Just because we’re a 200 year-old historic site doesn’t mean we aren’t keeping up with changing times.  Haywood Hall Museum House & Gardens now has a page on Facebook; please visit and join our group of fans.  We also invite you to add photos from your events, post a review, or start a new discussion. 

Giles-Thierer Wedding

28 Apr

Congratulations to Chris and Angie Giles!  After their marriage ceremony at Sacred Heart Cathedral in downtown Raleigh, they celebrated with a wedding reception at Haywood Hall. 

The weather was gorgeous and warm enough to make everyone long for the beach — an idea that fit well with the beach-themed display that accompanied another great menu by Catering Works.

Catering Works was also responsible for this beautiful wedding cake.  We began the afternoon with the cake displayed in the house and then later moved it to the gazebo for the official cutting.

The candy bar was a huge hit with guests.  It was so pretty that it was almost a shame to dig in.  Almost . . .

Haywood Hall’s 2009 Wedding Season Begins

25 Apr

Our 2009 wedding season has begun wonderfully.  We have been blessed with beautiful weather, and everyone has reported that our first three weddings were all huge successes.  It’s going to be a busy season for us; we’re booked for every weekend through the end of June.  July and August are little quieter, and then we hit the fall wedding season.  We do, however, still have limited availability for September. 

We have now begun our bookings for 2010.  It’s never to early for wedding plans!
