I’m not sure about places in Raleigh, but I know that near Chapel Hill there are several:

Barn at Valhalla
Snipes Farm
Horace Williams House
Extraordinary Ventures

I think you might run into trouble with the “lounge atmosphere” requirement…when I was looking, it seemed like the places that let you bring your own caterer or food or alcohol were more rustic. But it might be really cool to take a rustic place and redo it into a lounge!

Good luck!

We are in the same boat. Many of the places with preferred or in house catering are just out of our budget. 

Many of the parks/community centers and historic homes look promising. Although most of the historic homes would require a tent reception (don’t know if you have room for a tent in your budget). 

City of Raleigh community center list:

I have also found:

Burning Coal Theater, Raleigh

Museum of Natural Science, Downtown Raleigh

Bass Lake, Holy Springs


I would also love to know if anyone else has suggestions!

Look into Hudson Manor in Louisburg. I know its a drive but its all inclusive. All you have to worry about is the photographer and attire.

Check out the Rand-Bryan house. It’s technically in Garner, but just minutes off of I-40. My fiance and I live in Cary, and wanted to DIY lots of things for our wedding…and choose which vendors we wanted to work with. The Rand-Bryan house is BEAUTIFUL – beautiful gardens and landscaping…very friendly owners. They are very flexible and allow for you to choose all of your vendors. We’re getting married there on June 4, 2011 🙂 🙂 Good luck!

I just went to a Bridal show at the Sutherland.

It’s technically in Wake Forest.

It’s a beautiful place and they do have in house catering but they do allow outside catering. I have the information if you are interested.

Campbell Lodge at Durant Nature Park allows you to bring in your own food.  They also have a kitchen which helps the caterers out quite a bit so you’re not stuck with cold food.  🙂
