On January 30th, 2022 an exclusive tour of 5 wedding venues located in Downtown Raleigh, NC took place. The guests could tour the Dock, Jiddi Space & Courtyard, Market Hall, Melrose Knitting Mill, as well as The Stockroom at 230. Together, they have combined forces and re-imagined the Open House experience. As a result, couples seeking to celebrate their wedding day in Downtown Raleigh had an amazing opportunity to tour these great venues.

Firstly, 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 certainly 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, as well as bakers. Without a doubt, it was a great opportunity to meet wedding professionals, hear what they have to offer, and ask questions. In addition, the guests could 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 that is tucked behind the restaurants Sitti and Gravy. This hidden gem in downtown Raleigh is perfect for wedding ceremonies and receptions, rehearsal dinners, holiday or surprise parties, as well as 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.
