Destination Weddings & Reunions

Whether you’re planning a wedding or hosting a family, military or friends’ reunion, the pristine beaches, historic mansions, romantic and vibrant riverfront, Southern gardens and breathtaking scenery everywhere you look make Wilmington and our Island Beaches a beautiful backdrop.

Indoor venues include the largest convention center on the North Carolina coast, lavish ballrooms, romantic bed and breakfast inns, elaborate churches with stained glass windows, historic homes, and even unique options such as the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher.

Say “I do” oceanfront at Carolina, Kure or Wrightsville Beach. Plan an event in Airlie Gardens, in a marina, on the deck of the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA or on a riverfront terrace.

See how the water and our sales team can happily connect everyone for a memorable event.
