2021 Wedding - An Eventective User from Raleigh, NC

What a amazing venue, especially for a wedding! I didn't know that this venue was there, but the eventective website made that possible... Beautiful and open L shape place for a Wedding. Their L shape allowed me to separate the ceremony seating from the reception seating. I truly hope to use them for another function here. We got married during COVID restrictions and our contact Carla was very responsive and attentive to our needs, during an already stressful time. Every aspect of this place is simply beautiful. They allowed me select my own caterers from their list of approved vendors. The brick design was super classy and nothing beats the ambiance of the place. We even reserved the Business Center as well for the Bride and Bridesmaids to finish their preparations and be un-seen by the gentlemen. We also used their space outside for some of the formal pictures and my husband and I walked across the street and captured amazing pictures on the University campus. I definitely recommend to others and plan to use their facility again! They truly made me a Happy Bride!

Our Daughter's Sweet Sixteen - An Eventective User from Durham, NC

We recently had our daughter's sweet sixteen celebration at The Royal and were very pleased with everything. We toured the venue three times for our event; once to book, once with our planner for layout, and once with our DJ. Our planner and The Royal worked well together and once we reviewed the contract and details, it was an easy transaction. Payment processing and email communication was easy. Our vendors worked well with the venue as well. The space itself is bigger than it looks. There is a mirror on the wall where the dance floor is located, which seems odd. However, it did wonders for videos and pictures, especially pictures. it was a great unexpected detail. The area for the bar is ideal as well. The ice machine space is a bit odd, but we were able to work with it. Lastly, the a/c temp was our only issue, since it was a bit humid the day of the party, we requested to lower the temp twice. We were accommodated and all was well.
