Highgrove Estate, a hidden gem located off S. Main Street in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, is another favorite venue for photographing weddings. Highgrove is an elegant Southern estate tucked away on seven acres that overlook Lake Laurel.
Little White Dress Visuals has been documenting weddings and other events at Highgrove since as long ago as 2010. We are always pleased to have the opportunity to photograph a wedding at such a gorgeous Southern home. It helps that we are based in Holly Springs, so the proximity to somewhere so beautiful is great.
The estate is filled with antique elements from makeup tables to mirrors, which allow for some pretty moments during the getting ready process. The home is also equipped with several rooms so the groomsmen, bridesmaids and family members can all get ready separately. The long, winding wooden staircase provides a lovely entrance for the bride as she makes her way outside to the ceremony.
At Highgrove Estate, the outdoor ceremony and location is a perfect fit for a Southern belle. The bride and groom exchange vows underneath a beautiful trellis overlooking Lake Laurel. After the kiss, guests and family members can enjoy signature cocktails and tasty hors d’oeuvres on the sprawling front porch of the main house, or outside the bar area on the outdoor patios.
The celebrations take place in the Grand Ballroom. Food is prepared in-house, and local ingredients and Southern influence are always a noticeable part of the finely-plated cuisine. After a yummy dinner, everyone can dance the night away underneath a ceiling of fancy chandeliers and billowing white fabric.
Highgrove Estate is a great choice and gives us wonderful opportunities to photograph elegant outdoor Southern weddings.
