It’s going to be tough to find a place that fits all the requirements. Off the top of my head, I actually can’t think of anything that’s going to be a perfect fit!

If you can reduce your guest count to about 125, Snipes Farm in Chapel Hill will work. Get it down further, and you can use Haywood Hall in Raleigh.

If you can deal with having a ceremony indoors, Big Barn Convention Center in Hillsborough will work.

If you can deal with having separate settings, the Raleigh Rose Garden is beautiful for ceremonies. Follow it up with a reception at the science or history museums downtown (although you’ll be limited with catering on those).

You might also look at Rigmor House in Chapel Hill.

The limiting factor here is cost. Finding a place that does outdoor ceremony, indoor reception, and has room for 175 means that you’re probably paying a lot more than $3000 (especially on a Saturday in October, which is about the most popular time of year to get married in North Carolina).
