The Stockroom at 230 – Raleigh, NC Wedding Venue
The Stockroom at 230 is a unique, urban venue located in the heart of downtown Raleigh. When planning a wedding at the Stockroom at 230, we have a few tips.
- The best location to hold a wedding ceremony is along the far wall. However, this is not an issue for ceremony music because we can run sound to that location so you can walk down the aisle to the song of your choice.
- When planning the decor of the room, uplights look great on the brick walls. You can request lighting that will match the colors and theme of your wedding.
- When planning the location of the DJ and the dance floor, consider the DJ set up in the middle of the back wall.
- Having appetizers during a cocktail hour? Keep in mind that the cocktail hour is normally closed off from the dining area by white linens until time to be seated.
Sample Wedding at The Stockroom at 230
Liz and Cody had to overcome a nasty ice storm on their wedding weekend, but guess what? That didn’t prevent about 60 folks from having an amazing time! Let me start from the beginning. As soon as I walked into the room at the historic wedding venue The Stockroom at 230 in Raleigh North Carolina, the foul weather immediately left my mind. Lyn Graves and his Fresh Affairs had transformed the venue into something amazing! All I could say is “WOW!”.
The Wedding Reception Details
Around 6 pm, the guests started showing up from the ceremony and were treated to light apps and cocktails as I spun music from The Rat Pack era. Around 7:00, we had a formal introduction to Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”. As soon as Liz & Cody hit the dance floor, they went into their first dance, the classic “Moon River” by Andy Williams. Then, as a surprise to Cody, none other than Mr. and Mrs. Wuf (NC State’s official mascots) entered the party while I played the NC State fight song. Everyone went nuts getting their pictures taken with them and they even hung out for a while dancing with guests during dinner. I loved it (and I went to a rival college, lol).
Coming out of dinner (another great job by Catering Works), a couple of folks gave great toasts, and then Liz and her dad danced to “I Loved Her First” by Heartland and Cody and his mom danced to “Days Like This” by Van Morrison. After that, it was on! I could tell everyone was itching to dance because they were all standing at the end of the groom/mother dance, ha! And dance they did! What a night!
