We require that you choose a caterer on our Exclusive Catering List for all your food and beverage. Outside of that, you are welcome to hire any professional vendor for services provided they have a current Certificate of Insurance (COI) and are approved by All Saints Chapel.
You may go through your caterer for alcoholic beverages and service, or you may choose to provide your own alcoholic beverages and have your caterer supply a bartender to serve it. If your event involves liquor/cocktails, you will need to apply for a “Limited Special Occasion Permit” from the North Carolina ABC Commission. All alcoholic beverages (beer, wine, cocktails) must be served by a licensed and insured bartender as provided by the caterers on our Preferred Vendor List.
Your rental time is the time in which you have access to the venue on the day of your event. The event time is the time during which your event occurs. We require at least two hours between the start of your rental time and the start of your event be reserved for setup and at least one hour between the end of your event time and the end of your access time be reserved for cleanup. If you would like to add additional hours to your rental, you may do so at $200 an hour.
We have two designated handicap parking spots in our lot beside the Chapel and a side ramp into the main Chapel area. Although our downstairs ballroom is stair-access only, we are happy to recommend options to guests with mobility concerns.
Yes, we can provide a projector and screen for a $200 fee. Please note, we do not provide AV support throughout the event. For additional AV equipment and support, please ask for details.
Candles with live flames are permissible if they are within a container, and the flame does not extend over the top of the container. Only no-mark hooks/strips should be used on the walls, no nails or tape please. Glitter, confetti, birdseed, and loose feathers are not allowed.
During the standard rental time, the last hour is dedicated to personal/vendor cleanup. During this time, the caterer is responsible for stripping linens, racking flatware, china, and glassware, and placing all rental items in the appropriate pickup area. They are also responsible for removing trash and catering items and for spot sweeping the prep kitchen. You/your planner are responsible for removing and cleaning all items that you brought with you the same day of the event. No items may remain overnight. You do not need to break down the tables and chairs provided by the facility as we take care of your setup and breakdown of those items.
Under the guidelines set forth by NC DPS and the NC House Bill 130 (“Game Night Law”), All Saints Chapel does not meet the requirements as a “qualified facility” for events with casino games/games of chance.

A perk of being in the heart of Downtown Raleigh is that we are within a few blocks of several hotels! Please see our Preferred Vendor List for those we recommend.
With your rental, you have access to the parking lot beside the Chapel, and guests can also find parallel parking spots along the street. On weekdays after 6pm and on weekends, you and your guests will have access to the parking lot across the street next to the fire station on South East Street.
