Cedar Grove Acres is an elegant, authentically rustic venue situated on 30 rolling acres of farmland conveniently located just a few minutes north of Raleigh in southern Granville County. Our Farmhouse was built in 1858 and frames the entrance to the historic farmland that provides the perfect entrance for your wedding guests down our shaded country lane.
You can envision the past being blended into the present as materials from old barns, outbuildings, farm equipment, tobacco sticks, and vintage furniture are used in the creation and building of newer structures at the venue.
The grounds and barns at Cedar Grove Acres offer indoor and outdoor options for both ceremony and reception as well as a blank canvas for you and your planner to personalize and bring your wedding day vision to life. You can choose to work with one of our suggested vendors or you are welcome to bring any licensed vendor of your own.
