Hasta la vista 2016…2017 has arrived. For you newly engaged couples (and, we know there’s a few of you out there), it’s time to shake off the glitter and start making some plans for the Big Day. 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… And, if you love what you see, taste, touch, and hear…the wedding pros are available for booking on the spot. Really, we can’t think of a better way to plan your wedding or special event.
