On January 30th an exclusive tour of 5 wedding venues located in Downtown Raleigh, NC took place. You could tour the Dock, Jiddi Space & Courtyard, Market Hall, Melrose Knitting Mill, and The Stockroom at 230. Together, they have combined forces and re-imagined the Open House experience for couples seeking to celebrate their wedding day in Downtown Raleigh!

I loved how smoothly the event went thanks to The Great Raleigh Trolley which provided transportation for guests between venues. Each venue had an army of amazing vendors sponsoring the event and everyone did an amazing job. The vendors included live musicians, rental companies, wedding and event planners, photographers, videographers, catering companies, DJs, florists, hair and makeup artists, stationery, and bakers. It was a great opportunity to meet wedding professionals, hear what they have to offer, and ask questions. Plus sample delicious bites and drinks that were provided at each venue.

I had the pleasure of being one of the vendors in the beautiful Jiddi Space & Courtyard tucked behind the restaurants Sitti and Gravy and I enjoyed the experience. This hidden gem in downtown Raleigh is perfect for wedding ceremonies and receptions, rehearsal dinners, holiday or surprise parties, and other events. I had my booth set up at this rustic indoor/outdoor venue and I also took some photos of the event, see below.
