ABOUT US

Corporate Events Venue 
for the Durham, Cary & Raleigh, NC Area

The Sutherland was originally an 18th century estate in Wake Forest, NC. Today, the estate can be found on the National Registry of Historic Places as it continues to serve the local community as an elegant wedding venue and corporate events space. Our property has created the perfect romantic atmosphere for that special day for couples all over North Carolina. 

The Sutherland is situated in a beautiful garden setting with oaks, magnolias, and pines all around. Our picturesque garden is the perfect location for outdoor ceremonies, whether for a wedding or a corporate event. We also feature our newly remodeled pavilion for special events in an enclosed space. Our venue allows us to host events all year long. We are a leading wedding and corporate event venue for the Raleigh, Durham, and Cary, NC area.
