The Stockroom at 230
I’ve had the pleasure of photographing weddings at the Stockroom at 230 multiple times, and each time I absolutely loved it. The exposed brick, hardwood floors, and lattice ceilings create a warm, inviting atmosphere perfect for a romantic celebration. Modern-industrial is one of my favorite venue styles, and the Stockroom does it so well. I’m always obsessed over how the photographs turn out!
Located on the second floor of the Carolina Trust Building in Fayetteville Street, the Stockroom is in the heart of Downtown Raleigh. The building was constructed in 1902, and at its start, the venue was as its name implies, a stockroom. It served a business on the first floor of the building. Today the space has been repurposed to serve as a unique space for Raleigh brides and grooms to get married.
The Chalkboard Wall
One of the features that couples just love about this wedding venue is the large chalkboard wall. You can personalize this wall with your own names or a sweet phrase or verse. The chalkboard wall makes the perfect backdrop for your sweetheart table during the reception. Don’t worry if you nor anyone in your family is a great artist; the Stockroom provides a list of recommended artists who specialize these chalk designs.
The Glass Box
Another feature couples love is the spacious, airy getting ready suite called the Glass Box that comes with the venue rental. The Glass Box is upstairs on the fifth floor of the same building, convenient yet private for the bridal party. The room is surrounded by windows on three sides with views of downtown. The natural light is incredible up there for hair and makeup and of course, the getting ready photos!
The Glass Box also features a deck that is popular for first looks, wedding party portraits, and bride and groom portraits near sunset. Some of my favorite downtown portraits have been on this very deck!
