One of Southern Bride & Groom’s new preferred vendors is the Bennett Bunn Plantation, which is located in Zebulon, NC, just 15 minutes from the Raleigh Beltline. I had the privilege of attending a holiday event there this weekend that the Hendricksons, who own the property and live in the onsite plantation home, hosted to celebrate the holidays, as well as the completion of their lakeside lodge.
Driving into the Bennett Bunn Plantation is like stepping back in time. Upon passing through the brick gated entrance, the sight of the lovely historic home is the first site. The grounds host several large horses and several old-fashioned carriages (which both make wonderful wedding photo-ops). The brand-new lodge is a fabulous wedding venue that sits alongside a lake with a wooded view and a gazebo. The lodge has a cozy indoor room with a fireplace, bar and kitchen, an outdoor patio with a large stone fireplace and firepit, and plenty of room to add on with tent to host extra people. I am absolutely in LOVE with this place (and the Hendrickson family’s brand new litter of puppies)!
If you are looking for a plantation or country setting for your NC wedding, I highly recommend checking out this unique venue! Here are just a few photos I took on my phone while at the event, but for more photos, and more about their history and booking a wedding event, visit their website Here!
