I recently spoke to a bride who wanted to find a venue in Winston Salem North Carolina that would allow her to have a reception by a private caterer and be able to accommodate guests up to 150. So I let her in on a little secret in Winston Salem.
One of the best kept secrets and a very special place for a wedding and reception is hidden in Winston Salem’s quiet countryside, the Sedge Garden Recreation. This beautiful venue is nestled in the quiet neighborhood of Robbins Road in Winston Salem NC. The facility is owned by the City of Winston Salem and is a part of the Recreation and Parks Department. Sedge Garden Recreation Center is perfect for Weddings and Receptions. Your guests will enjoy the ease of parking and location as this facility located in the heart of Sedge Garden at 401 Robbins Road has quick access to Highway 311, Interstate 40 and Highway Business 40.
Upon first glance at the building you think it looks like a regular building, without much fanfare, but when you step inside, you will find a wonderful surprise. This facility is very clean, has ample space and an efficient area for the ease of catering. As you continue through the hallways you will step into the ballroom, upon entering your eyes will be focused on the beautiful cathedral dome shaped ceiling, which rests in the middle of room. This beautiful area is complimented by empire windows throughout the room. The recessed ceilings are aglow in accents of soft light, muted hues of gray that accentuate the room and the matching tile floor which will work into any color scheme set the ambiance of your celebration.
You will enjoy the glow of the sunset as your background through the empire windows as you dance the night away to your favorite DJ or live band while toasting your newly made nuptials. The ballroom can also be transformed to host a wedding against the empire windows. Your guests will enjoy a cocktail hour in the lobby enjoying appetizers and mingling as your ballroom is transformed for your wedding reception. What’s also wonderful about the Sedge Garden Recreation Center is that smaller rooms are available to be utilized for overflow or changing areas for a spectacular entrance for your reception.
