The charming Victorian Matthews Reid House is an ideal wedding venue located in downtown Matthews, North Carolina and just outside the city of Charlotte. It features a newly renovated interior and a lovely spacious landscaped lawn. The backyard gazebo is a favorite setting for weddings.

It combines classic Southern elegance with modern amenities to suit today's modern bride. Our tranquil outdoor setting and beautifully appointed interior provide the perfect ambiance for you to create a picturesque wedding to remember. We feature an elegant home environment that can accomodate 55-60 guests for an intimate sit-down dinner or up to 90 guests for a more casual buffet style. A gazebo in the back corner of the lawn is perfectly situated amid colorful plantings and an ideal setting for a wedding ceremony. A generous side yard provides privacy with a brick wall on one side, the Reid House on the other side, and a colossal Southern magnolia tree providing a stately backdrop between the sides.

What We Offer

With new interior renovations, we offer five front rooms plus a glass enclosed sun porch, spacious foyer, kitchen, three baths, and a room in the back of the house often used as a bride's dressing room. Each of the five front rooms come equipped with dining tables and chairs. (Tablecloths not included in rental.) The interior is tastefully decorated featuring soft pastels to go with any color scheme. The exterior consists of a front porch, brick sidewalks, gazebo in back, and a carriage house surrounded by roses and other plants at the back edge of the property. (Carriage house excluded from rental space.) Parking available. Lodging and restaurants nearby. Easy access to Highway 51, Independence Boulevard (Highway 74) and I-485.
