In May, our daughter and son-in-law were married at Cedar Grove Acres on a brilliant, sunny, spring day. The Meadow was lush and set with bright white chairs before the tobacco barn pole backdrop, golf cart transportation was at the ready to shuttle guests from the parking area, the Cottage a cool and calm oasis for the bridal party, the Hay Shack tables were decorated for the reception, the Tinkle Tavern was ready for duty, and the Tavern was being stocked with cool beverages. It was a spectacular day! From the attentiveness of all the CGA staff, to the family and friends of the owners who helped clean up after a huge tree limb fell 30 hours before the wedding, which pulled down a majority of the outdoor reception area lighting, Cedar Grove Acres is a professional, class act venue. As I said, a HUGE tree limb fell on Friday…we arrived to find Paula, Richard, their friends and family cleaning up an equally huge mess with tractors, trucks, and them climbing through the tree branches salvaging the unbroken lightbulbs that they then restrung in time for the reception in order to restore the wonderful night time lighting! And, they were calm and reassuring to us while dealing with this damage to their own property and all that it entailed for them. Words fall short in expressing how wonderful Paula was to work with over the past few months in preparing for the wedding weekend. My emails were always promptly answered, and if Paula didn’t have an answer to my almost daily questions, she found one for me! I felt like I made a new friend, and didn’t just work with a “venue owner”! Paula and Richard have truly found their life’s calling at CGA!
I got married in October of 2016 at CGA and I could not have had a better experience! The venue is gorgeous and not only accommodates a rustic theme, but also has a romantic and whimsical feel to it. Leading up to my wedding and on the big day, they did everything in their power to make me feel special and wanted. I had over 250 wedding guests (I got married in the Meadow, and had my reception in the Hay Shack) and even with that many people, there was plenty room for guests, food stations, a photo bus, seating, parking, 2 bars, and a 7-person band. It was certainly a night to remember! Also, as a bride, I will tell you that the bridal suite is top notch. My hair and make-up team said it was the best bridal suite they’d ever been in — plenty of room, a lounge, a kitchen, a full bathroom, and a room to get ready in, with mirrors and stools. They were so helpful and accommodating to my every need and truly made my wedding day an unforgettable experience! Highly recommended!!
Daisies n’ Such Weddings highly recommends Cedar Grove Acres for your wedding if you are dreaming of a barn wedding. This is a true farm experience (cows included) in a beautiful setting. Paula is fantastic to work with and she makes everything run smooth. Gorgeous venue!!!
The team at Cedar Grove was able to make our special day exactly as we wanted. They were very attentive and helpful throughout the planning process and especially on the big day. Paula is very easy to get in contact with and very quick to return phone calls, which was a blessing considering my husband and I live in Nebraska! Overall our day was perfect and stress free thanks to them! Oh, and beautiful of course!!
My wedding this weekend was wonderful- much thanks to the staff of Cedar Grove Acres. They were there from the moment we started planning until the last guest left and everyone raved about how beautiful the venue is. I had a special chair setup for the ceremony and Paula spent hours perfecting it so I had exactly what I wanted on my dream wedding day. They were accommodating, professional and incredibly kind on the most important day of my life. I highly recommend booking the fire pit- it was a HUGE hit with my guests!
I am a vendor with a photo booth and cedar creek acres are fantastic to work with. The venue is beautiful with lots of space for your guests. You won’t be disappointed.
Gorgeous place! Came here for a friend’s wedding and it was beautiful and spaceous. Small details really make this place welcoming and beautiful.
Rustic Elegance Thank you for giving us the most perfect experience for our daughters wedding! It is awesome to work with these amazing owners of this spectacular venue! Can’t rave enough of how perfect everything was. From the whiskeys barrels to the Victorian sofas.
We are Photos by Clay here and we were so fortunate to have the chance to photograph a wedding at Cedar Groves Acres. Paula and her husband did an amazing job making of their place such a gorgeous location with the perfect environment for a complete wedding day! They thought about all the details one can ever imagine. There are two different locations for ceremony, outside and inside, which is great for rainy days. The reception barn is cozy with a lot of room at the same time, with a beautiful view, and when it gets to the sunset hour it is even prettier! There is also a separated house where the bride and bridesmaid have a great time getting ready, and many different spots for them to spend time together. The red door is a must see too! And much more!
I can’t say enough how on top of everything Paula and her staff are.The entire time they there, ready to assist with anything if needed.
My husband and I had blast photographing this wedding there. The pictures are breathtaking! We can’t wait for our next experience at Cedar Groves Acres.
Book quick! It is definitely your wedding location! We recommend it 100%!
My husband and I originally planned on holding our ceremony at my sister’s house until we found out the high cost of rentals. Paula replied to my Facebook search within minutes. My husband and I immediately fell in love with Cedar Grove Acres. The venue offered the romantic and authentic farm feel we were searching for at a very reasonable price. Paula and her husband Richard were instrumental in creating what turned out to be a fairytale wedding. They also stepped up in an amazing way to save the day when our rehearsal caterer failed to show up. Through the course of the wedding events, Paula and Richard have become like family. Highly recommend Cedar Grove Acres as the setting for a dream wedding. Words cannot express our true gratitude. Thanks a million!
I wasn’t convinced when my daughter wanted to get married here but I have to give kudos to the staff. Awesome place and even better folks! They were very gracious and easy to work with and it turned out to be better than I anticipated. They were especially helpful when it began to rain and they sprang into action to preserve our reception! Highly recommend this venue for a wedding if you like a rustic country setting that presents a very enjoyable atmosphere. Thank you for making Jennifer and Justin’s day so memorable and special!
My niece had her wedding at CGA in May/2016. The wedding was originally planned for outside and due to the rain, we moved it to the inside Chapel Barn. It was still just as beautiful as outside and had the country feel! Paula and Richard go above and beyond to make their clients happy and their day as special as possible. I recommend this venue to everyone! It comes with so many options, props, tables, chairs and much more. Once you visit it, you will fall in love with it too!
We had our engagement pictures done at Cedar Grove Acres and the grounds were gorgeous. The owners were easy to communicate with and catered to our every need. I highly recommend this venue for any of your wedding/party needs
It was love at first sight when we saw Cedar Grove Acres. Paula & Richard are constantly improving their beautiful property, and were professional but personal the entire time. It rained on our wedding day, but they did everything in their power to make our day run as smooth as possible. They treated us like family and made us feel like they genuinely cared about our experience. They took the hassle out of renting decorations, lighting, tables and chairs because they were already on site. Our guests were blown away as well, and we would highly recommend this venue to everyone!
I had the distinct pleasure recently to MC and providing the DJ entertainment for a wedding that was hosted at this wonderful facility. The outdoor setting was beautiful, the facilities were well maintained and the owners were very easy to work with and professional. Thanks for a great experience, I look forward to being back again.
If you’re looking for a beautiful, picturesque farm venue, look no further than Cedar Grove Acres! Not only are the owners some of the kindest, easy to work with people, the property they have is beyond gorgeous! Paula is very responsive and was so flexible with us when we changed our day and time for engagement photos about 3 times (all last minute) when the weather forecast wasn’t working in our favor. After our wedding, our guests were raving about the property and how it is one of the most beautiful farm venues they had been to. I cannot say enough good things about our experience hosting our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and reception at CGA!
I was having such a hard time choosing a wedding venue. I looked at beautiful locations in downtown Raleigh and nothing really fit my vision. My MOH came to visit and we did a tour of a few local barn venues. The second we saw Cedar Grove Acres I knew that it would be my wedding venue. I describe it as a “wedding village” with something for everyone. It is absolutely breathtaking and it is clear that Paula and her husband put a lot of time, effort, and care into it. They are so sweet and great to work with. Our wedding was absolutely spectacular. Everyone had a wonderful time and were raving about how gorgeous the venue is. We are honored to have a cedar puck on your wall! Thank you for everything you did to make our day special!
Great venue with so many options and amenities! The wildflower garden is a great addition to the beautiful ceremony space.
Beautiful venue! I had to change my venue TWO DAYS before my wedding due to extreme weather. They not only said yes but helped us all the way through. Thank you guys!
So incredibly happy we had our wedding here! Paula and Richard are so nice to work with and they own the most beautiful property. Everyone loved it!
The venue was beautiful and allowed for my fear of coverage even if there was rain. The bridal suite had everything we needed to get ready and we never felt rushed before, during, or after the ceremony.
Cedar Grove Acres was an amazing venue for my daughter’s wedding. A group of us visited Paula and Richard back in January and it was hard to visualize what all the areas would look like come September but it was absolutely beautiful. We were blessed with a beautiful day and night that made the whole event a dream come true for the bride and groom. Paula and Richard are great folks to work with and I am so thankful for their help.
Beautiful grounds that are well kept. The entrance, bridal area, bar area, barn, fire pit and gardens are all clean and thoughtfully placed for meandering around. I’ve worked as a vendor several times here, its always efficiently run and Beautiful
Cedar Grove Acres, is such a beautiful location. Their outside ceremony space is ideal for any type of decor and atmosphere. We had an amazing experience decorating and setting up. Paula and her staff were very helpful throughout the night and during the planning process. Answered all our questions in a timely manner and worked with us throughout the night when needed. As a planner, I would recommend their venue in a heart beat. We hope to be back soon coordinating weddings there!
My wife and I tied the knot at Cedar Grove Acres last year, and our experience was incredible from start to finish. When we first inquired about the venue, Paula was very friendly and helpful with regards to our questions, and she had a lot of great ideas for us as we were planning our special day. At the time, Paula and her husband were completing some new renovations, and throughout the process they kept us informed on the new additions and updates they were making. The renovations turned out to be BEAUTIFUL!!! Paula, her husband, and their team were on point with the setup on the actual day of the wedding and they did a wonderful job. We heard from several of our guests that the venue was absolutely stunning and a beautiful location for a wedding. My wife and I 100%, hands down, recommend Cedar Grove Acres to anyone looking for a place to hold their special day.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND Cedar Grove Acres was a dream venue for my wedding! Everything the owners, Paula and Richard, have done with their property is quality and lovely. Their vendor list is some of the most professional and qualified vendors around. My guests said my wedding was one of their favorites because of the gorgeous venue and professional, fun vendors! This venue is a gem!!! My experience at Cedar Geove Acres from first visit to end of reception was beautiful perfection!!!
I can’t say enough about this venue and it’s owners Paula and Richard. Paula was very responsive and flexible during these unusual times. We looked all over the state of NC looking for the perfect place to have our perfect day and found that this venue was only 10 minutes from our home. Thank you Paula and Richard for your excellent service and family like atmosphere. I highly recommend this venue.
We had a beautiful, elegant wedding at Cedar Grove Acres in May 2016. Such a perfect evening!! Everybody loved the combo of the rustic barn, white linens and beautiful. It was a wonderful event location like non-other. You made it so easy!
I would recommend this beautiful venue to any new engaged couple or anyone having an event. This place is gorgeous! As a wedding vendor they treated me with world class customer service and I would love to DJ there anytime! You have to check this place out!
My daughter Chelsea is the Owner/Operator of Cakes by Chelsea Dickerson in southern Granville. County. She has been honored to be highlighted cake vendor at the Cedar Grove Bridal Show the last two years. She loves the owners there and appreciates their trust in her ability to create the perfect cake for your special day.
Cedar Grove Acres is a beautiful place for a wedding and other events. I had the privilege to direct a wedding here last weekend. I enjoyed working with Paula and her husband. They were awesome and right there to help in any way. Great experience! Would definitely recommend Cedar Grove Acres and give them a perfect 5 stars.
