Venue Setting

Our charming property offers breathtaking backdrops for those desiring a romantic and timeless wedding. Built in 1840, the sprawling, white mansion has been well-known to longtime Holly Springs residents for decades. Conveniently located 25 minutes outside of Raleigh and situated on more than an acre of land, the Leslie-Alford-Mims House uniquely combines rich history with modern grace and style. 

The atmosphere is relaxed and inviting. The house and grounds are equipped to host both indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions as well as private events and corporate meetings. Imagine getting married under a canopy of Magnolia trees among a southern landscape. Or having your wedding cake displayed beneath a shimmering chandelier. 

Envision your guests perusing the various rooms while a pianist plays the Baby Grand. Picture hosting your reception in the Event Lawn either under a tent, beneath market lights or in the open-air. 

An oversized porte cochere that once accommodated horse and carriages can now be used as your dance floor. The possibilities are endless and the neutral setting makes the Mims House ideal for any style and any budget.

What makes the Mims House different? It’s more than a venue. We vow to devote a high level of attention to you, your day and your details throughout the entire process. Not only will you secure the perfect place to get married, but you’ll also work with a talented team of vendors who are trustworthy, passionate and dedicated.
