Shortly after moving to Greensboro, NC in 2014, I began searching for a space to execute events similar to the historic venues I had worked at in places like Raleigh and Charleston – a place full of character and natural light that felt like a magical oasis. When I couldn’t find the venue I dreamed of working in, I dreamed a new dream of creating it.
However, I didn’t want to create it out of nothing. Instead, I searched for a space that had a rich history and years of stories to tell, but one that was ready to tell a new story. Many new stories in fact, the stories of each couple that walked through the doors. In my search I found the McAlister-Leftwich House and I immediately felt like I was home.
My goal – which became our goal as my mom and husband linked arms with me – was to curate a space where families could gather for their most treasured moments. A grandmother sees her granddaughter in the wedding gown she once wore. A father shares one final piece of wisdom to his son before standing at his side as his Best Man. Sisters toast champagne through tears of joy as they see a childhood dream realized. From wedding morning jitters to the last dance under twinkly lights, we work from a heart of hospitality – from our family to yours.
