Nestled in a cozy corner of downtown Cary, in a central location to Raleigh / Durham / Chapel Hill's Triangle area in North Carolina, The Matthews House offers an intimate wedding venue with Southern elegance and urban versatility.

If you want a venue that is beautiful and will take excellent care of you on your very special day, pick The Matthews House!"
—Erica S., Yelp.com

From a handful of participants to 160 guests, we invite you to meander the mansion with a cocktail, play yard games by the fountain, or dance under the string lights covering the patio. Walk down the aisle in our grand ballroom, or exchange vows in front of the landscaped arbor, The Matthews House offers flexibility in planning your dream wedding.

From the initial planning, Jannette was able to help us coordinate and schedule every detail, with zero stress or issues. Everything was very easy from start to finish. We were pretty particular and specific with our vision, and The Matthews House offered the perfect venue, with Jannette making sure everything went smoothly."
