A charming, Victorian-style wedding venue located in downtown Youngsville - just five miles North of Wake Forest & only 20 miles from the heart of Downtown Raleigh.
The Victorian was originally a home built in the late 1800's, and was carefully restored to the splendor it is today. Enjoy cocktails in the courtyard beneath our beautiful magnolia tree, and dinner under the stars with friends and family. With indoor and outdoor space available, The Victorian is the perfect place to host your wedding or event.
Giuliana, a Youngsville native, is the co-owner of Halifax Hill Studios. With the help of her husband, Brian, they run a successful photography business focusing on weddings, elopements and engagements. With all of the venues Giuliana has photographed, she wanted to create a space with the bride in mind, but also a venue that would make the photographer's job a breeze.
"The Victorian is a classy space with a southern flair and I love to showcase that in the photographs I take during weddings at The Victorian!"
Brian proposed to Giuliana at The Victorian's grand opening event on November 1, 2019. Giuliana and Brian had their own wedding at The Victorian on September 25, 2021.
Brian has worked in the hospitality industry since he was 15 years of age, managing multiple bars and restaurants in the Raleigh area. Brian graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Design in Architecture. With his experience in both hospitality and design, Brian fell in love with The Victorian when he first laid eyes on it. Brian has numerous experiences creating events all around the country and we can't wait to see what kind of events he can think of for The Victorian.
"I think it's important for our venue to be functional for weddings as well as other types of events. We plan on bringing new life to the town of Youngsville and we can't wait to do so!"
