Reception Venue at The Meadows Wedding Venue in Raleigh, NC

The Meadows at Firefly Farm Preserve in Raleigh, NC is a popular wedding venue. Perhaps you have already read my article outlining the various ceremony sites, and now you’d like to learn more about the reception area. As a wedding photographer, I have photographed in this space on numerous occasions and am very familiar with it. 

Heron Hall

The reception area of the Meadows Raleigh is called Heron Hall. Heron Hall is a fun and funky spot to hold your reception as it is full of eclectic vibes. It is simultaneously industrial and modern, but with funky vintage details. The Heron Hall wedding reception venue is also capable of being a wide, open-air space. While there is flexibility as to the exact layout and functionality based on your preferences, the full front of the Heron Hall can be opened up to let the fresh air in and create a more open atmosphere. There is ample area of covered dining outside the building as well in front of Heron Hall. 

Heron Hall has a few different spaces: the main dining space, the lounge and bar space, and the hall which connects them. The main dining space can also serve as a ceremony area in the case of rain, or if couples prefer an indoor ceremony. This area is enough to host a large wedding reception. Even more if you are able to seat additional guests outside. This is very commonly done. 

The Bar can be accessed from either inside or outside, which offers flexibility to your guests, and quicker access to refill their drinks. I love this side of Heron Hall because it has a grass roof! Like I said in my other article about The Meadows Raleigh, the owners are very committed to sustainable practices. There is also a brick-lined lounge area behind the indoor section of the bar where guests can hang out to chat. 

The center hallway is not too large, but offers a nice buffer of space between the rooms. A large stained glass door was just installed to add a bit of color and interesting vintage vibes to this space.
