The Meadows at Firefly Farm Preserve is an event venue located on a heritage farm in the heart of Raleigh, North Carolina. It’s a blend of Southern elegance, rolling meadows, and mature forests. It’s 105 acres of nature and beauty. The venue is a perfect natural setting and it can accomodate large weddings. Heron Hall sits among dense pine trees, making your wedding cozy, intimate, and peaceful. These qualities won’t be compromised with a big wedding at The Meadows.

Facilities And Capacity
The Meadows at Firefly Farm Preserve can accommodate a maximum capacity of 1,000 guests. Heron Hall is a seamless combination of both indoors and outdoors, perfect for a wedding reception. The venue has preserved the property’s history, and restored Heron Hall from the farm’s original warehouse and grain silo. The amazing oversize glass roll-up doors are ideal for gazing out over the 115 acre prairie preserve. Take pictures under the green roof trellis or on the inner courtyard. Guests will enjoy the evening under lofted ceilings or a covered arbor. The Aerie House is where the bride and the bridal party will prepare before you say “I do.” The Aerie House holds an open hearth, Venetian style glass chandeliers, kitchen, living-dining rooms, and a bridal suite fit for a queen.

It’s a ranch style retreat with two bedrooms, guest room, dressing room, kitchen, fireplace, flat screens, bar, poker, ping pong, and a dedicated beer fridge.

  • The Meadows was not our original wedding venue, but after having our wedding date postponed twice due to Covid, we decided to elope. We wanted to still be able to get married somewhere beautiful and affordable, and the Meadows was perfect for this. We were there for 2 hours, which was perfect for our elopement. Working with them was so easy and hassle-free. Would definitely recommend!
