Cross+Main Offers a Picturesque Setting for Wedding Ceremony
For couples in the Raleigh area, choosing the right place to hold your wedding isn’t always an easy decision. Many brides look at different wedding venues before making a decision on which venue to choose because they are searching for a certain tone and style for their wedding. Located in Youngsville, Cross+Main has quickly become known as one of the top wedding venues in the Raleigh area because of its history and unique design. Couples that want a more elegant wedding ceremony often choose Cross+Main because of its southern charm. The venue works for a more traditional or contemporary wedding ceremony and can be decorated to fit any theme.
This Southern-style event center is equipped for both large and intimate events. The Riddick Room, a 3,000-square-foot space, can accommodate up to 225 guests. The room has been designed with an old world charm, with restored wood flooring. The original 100 year old exposed bricks have been kept intact to preserve the room’s historic feel. The more intimate space next door, the Winslow Room, holds 60 guests. The Boondocks also offers a dressing room for brides and a fully-functional kitchen space for wedding receptions.
Cross+Main’s experienced event planners work with couples to ensure that they have the wedding of their dreams. They include caterers, wedding planners, deejays, florists and other vendors in the process to guarantee that the space is uniquely tailored for each couple’s big day.
In the past, the historic building has been used as a livery, fire station and auction house. The building was a hub of activity from the early 1900s to around the 1980s and then lay dormant for a number of decades. In 2013, Cross+Main, formerly The Boondocks, saw new life as investors saw its potential as an events venue. The architecture made it perfect for different types of events, including a wedding shower, a wedding dinner, graduation party or any other more intimate or larger reception. The building’s arches provide an ideal spot for taking pictures or for a bride and groom making a grandiose entrance.
