The new year is here and we know there’s a few newly engaged couples out there wondering the same question….where to begin? The wedding planning process can be daunting to say the least, but we’ve got your solution. The beauty of your perfectly timed engagement is the annual wedding planning event, Courtyards & Cobblestones – A Walk Through Wedding Row, held in downtown Wilmington, NC.

This one-of-a-kind wedding event provides couples (and event planners) with the opportunity to experience the look, feel, taste, touch, and sound of Wilmington’s premiere venues along side the goods and services of the areas top wedding professionals.  Simply put, you can experience the feel of the venue, taste the food, sip a cocktail, see inspired event design and flowers, touch the linens, see the lighting, hear the music, meet the photographers.
