The Maxwell Wedding Venue

The Maxwell is a wedding venue where old-world elegance meets modern design. French gas lanterns, ivy walls, and a large fireplace give the Maxwell some of its charm. White walls and large floor plans create a clean slate that can be crafted to suit a wide variety of décor styles. Located less than four miles from Downtown Raleigh, it is also a convenient location for guests.

The Maxwell features ample indoor and outdoor spaces, making it a perfect location in any season and in any weather. The outdoor lawn and patio are popular options for ceremonies, cocktail hours, and portraits. For those looking to have the full day inside (or in the case of poor weather) two large indoor spaces work together seamlessly for the wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.

The Maxwell is perfect for any bride looking for modern luxury and the ease of convenience for  her guests.
