The King’s Daughters Inn – a Historic Boutique Bed and Breakfast and Intimate Wedding Venue near Duke University in Durham NC
The King’s Daughters Inn is unique, stylish and sustainable Bed and Breakfast boutique hotel in Durham NC. It offers many options for weddings. It can be used for a ceremony and reception, or for unique and memorable accommodations as well as a gathering place during the wedding weekend.
Each room is a uniquely styled suite at this one-of-a-kind property. If you tour the property, you’ll notice that each room has its own color scheme and decor items – though all have a luxurious bed with a grand, fabric-covered headboard. Each room is amazing, but none match the bridal suite, which is one of the most picturesque in Durham.
The common spaces of the boutique Durham hotel are also noteworthy. From the cozy dining room, to the parlor and the ligh-filled sunroom, there are many beautiful areas to gather – or, to take wedding portraits. Beyond the impressively curated aesthetics, you’ll note that the service at KDI is high quality. I can personally attest to this – Team Heart of NC Weddings has stayed at the property a few times (we’ve even done retreats there!) and have been to events at the venue as well. We are always impressed, and leave with full bellies and warm hearts.
The King’s Daughters Inn is nestled in the heart of Durham’s Trinity Park – right across the street from Duke University East Campus. So it is close to many local wedding destinations such as Duke Chapel, as well as downtown Durham.
Weddings at The King’s Daughters Inn in Durham
A small, intimate wedding ceremony and reception (for 50 guests or fewer) can be held entirely at the Inn. Their parlor is rearranged to create a beautiful living room style ceremony that is both comfortable and elegant. After the first kiss as a married couple, guests are escorted to the dining room for a delicious meal and wonderful conversation. Dancing and toasts can be held in the spacious Brodie Duke Hall.
For larger weddings, a couple can host a lively reception (up to 100 guests) all throughout the Inn! Another option is to use the Inn as your wedding party headquarters. Begin a weekend celebration by welcoming the overnight guests with complimentary afternoon tea and light snacks. Brides can primp with their best girlfriends for the ceremony rehearsal and rehearsal dinner in one of our luxurious suites. Gather family and friends in the parlor to host a cocktail hour and then move to the dining room for a sophisticated or laid back rehearsal dinner full of food, friends, family, and fun!
With full access to the house, couples could invite guests following the big day to join them for a farewell breakfast and to recount the evening’s reception!
