I’m happy to blog this elegant and simple Pavilion at Angus Barn engagement session today.
The Angus Barn in Raleigh, NC, is one of the best known restaurants in NC. It’s been the sight for many a celebration from birthday’s to weddings, to proposals. I can’t think of a single person who doesn’t love the Angus Barn. Part of it’s charm lies not only in its amazing food, but also in it’s history. It was built with beams and stones salvaged from Sherman’s march through Raleigh in the Civil War, which makes it something of a historic landmark as well. Another claim to fame is that its Chef, Walter Royal is an Iron Chef Champion. He’s one of many local heroes in Raleigh.
Part of the reason couples have loved the Pavilions at Angus Barn, is because of it’s natural setting. The Angus barn is located right next to Umstead State park, so there’s no construction to it’s south, and it has it’s own natural beauty. The Pavilion is set against Angus Barn lake, which has a beautiful nature path. A terrace overlooking the lake is perfect for waterside ceremonies. There’s a bell column with couples named etched in it, lending to it’s romantic charm.
It’s also conveniently located to Brier Creek. Hotels and stores abound for last minute snack runs during wedding prep. It’s perfect for out of town guests to easily find the venue. Hotels can also easily transport guests back to the hotel after weddings. Between history, location, and amazing food, the Angus Barn is the perfect choice for a beautiful luxurious, romantic wedding.
I love when couples choose places that are special to them. A lot of couples often express hesitation about saying where they’d like their session to take place, but once they choose a place that has meaning for them, they relax, and enjoy their time together. So my one “protip” for all the brides and grooms to be, if you’re interested in having an engagement session, choose a place you love, that has meaning for you, that you can easily go back to reminisce and plan for the future. It’ll be your private sanctuary in a way for for your relationship, and having your session in a meaningful place allows you to have one more reason to always love it.
Thanks for reading.
