Weddings at The Umstead Hotel and Spa

from simple moments to your forever

Each wedding at The Umstead Hotel and Spa is as unique as the couple it celebrates. Tucked into a serene woodland setting just a short drive from Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, The Umstead caters to discerning couples who are drawn to the hotel’s sophisticated ambience, artistic spirit, and the natural beauty of its surroundings.

The property’s expansive and beautifully landscaped lawn is a natural choice for an elegant outdoor wedding, allowing couples to exchange vows against a spectacular and serene backdrop. Wide stone pavers create a dramatic aisle-like pathway leading to the hotel’s private lake, surrounded by woodlands and accentuated with a dramatic fountain. Inside, the walls of our Grand Ballroom easily shift to accommodate parties of any size and is filled with an abundance of natural light streaming in through floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the lake.  Custom seasonal menus are created by the award-winning team that led Herons to national acclaim. Whether you're planning an intimate gathering or an extravagant wedding, our wooded grounds, lakeside terrace and elegant lawn are yours to fill with guests and loved ones for any social event.

With individual attention and a picturesque setting, our dedicated and experienced staff works closely with you to help bring your dream wedding to life. From the moment you arrive for your wedding until you depart, The Umstead Hotel and Spa surrounds you in a warm and relaxing atmosphere.
