History
The Historic Wakefield Barn is part of Wake County’s rich agricultural history. In the 1930s, businessman and philanthropist John Sprunt Hill bought the property to indulge his hobby of raising prize Guernsey cows. Construction of the Wakefield Dairy Complex, including the main barn, began in 1934. Over the years, the property has had several owners and the barn was converted into a horse stable in the 1970s. In the 1990s, the developers of Wakefield subdivision bought the property as they turned the area into a large residential community with a golf course, but the barn still remained in its spot. In 2000, Mary Schilling and her husband, Steve, bought the property when Mary was looking for a place to board her house. Throughout the years, the stable has housed some of North Carolina’s best hunters and jumpers. Now, it is open and welcomes couples in holding their wedding ceremony, reception, or any other event.

When my mom and I met with Blake in person on several occasions leading up to the big day, it felt just like we were chatting with a friend!! She is so easy and pleasant to be with and knew exactly how to help us sort out all the details and logistics. She always made me feel like my opinion was the most important thing and that we could do almost anything to make it the perfect wedding day. When it came to the wedding day itself, Blake was invaluable - I really don't know what we would have done without her!! She made everything run smoothly and feel effortless for me, my fiance, and my family. Sh... Read more
