With a Carolina blue sky and the deep blue Atlantic as your backdrop, “something blue” is a given when you get married in North Carolina’s Brunswick Islands. And, best of all, you'll have access to a wide variety of wedding venues to choose from. Whether you prefer to say "I do" on the beach with sand beneath your feet and the ocean breeze catching your veil, or on the romantic grounds of a golf resort surrounded by emerald fairways, we have the ideal setting for your special day. Read on to find your perfect wedding venue in the Brunswick Islands.

Toes in the sand: Beachfront Wedding

Looking to stand before the ocean and pledge your commitment to the one you love? NC's Brunswick Islands has a beach for every bride, so rest assured to have your dream beach wedding become a reality on any one of our six beautiful beaches. For your very own private beach wedding ceremony, consider working with one of our local wedding planners in the area to determine which beach speaks to your heart. Resorts and inns such as Ocean Isle Inn and Islander Inn also provide great venues for both a beach wedding and reception where you can choose from an oceanfront gazebo, or tie the knot directly on the beach in the sand.

A Unique Outdoor Wedding

For an outdoor wedding ceremony with a unique twist, consider Silver Coast Winery or Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson Historic Site. At Silver Coast Winery, happy couples can cite their vows nestled in the grapevines of a picturesque vineyard, or on a private patio and lawn space overlooking a vibrant woodland. With acres of beautiful landscapes, both options provide a unique outdoor space for a wedding ceremony. While Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson provides an already beautiful setting with large oak trees and riverfront views, it’s the ruins of the town church on the historic site that make it the perfect unconventional location for a ceremony.

Swing into Nuptials: Golf Resort Wedding 

Whether the happy couple needs another round of golf before they say “I do,” or they're just looking for a gorgeous landscaped venue with a stately clubhouse, our golf clubs and resorts, like Carolina National Golf Club and Brunswick Plantation Resort and Golf, to name a few, offer gorgeous indoor and outdoor spaces for a wedding. Indulge and relax on your special day knowing everything is being taken care of by the professional staff. And don’t forget to take those gorgeous wedding shots by the green fairways!

Something Borrowed: A Venue that Feels like Home

For an intimate and family-oriented wedding venue, consider renting a generous-sized vacation rental home. A private ceremony in a beach house surrounded by the ones you love is perfect for any bride looking to have friends and family close together for a special wedding celebration. For a smaller and even more intimate ceremony, consider renting a sailboat. Take your party of up to 6 on the Endless Summer Sailing Charter, a 38-foot sloop that gives you the opportunity to say “I do” surrounded by something blue.
