Belle Vue Wilmington

We are so excited to share with you our new bridal suite and event space in the middle of Historic Downtown. Belle Vue Wilmington is the perfect space for every event. With about 2000 square feet it is ideal for small intimate parties of 50 or less. Our new glistening chandeliers will lead you upstairs to see the original exposed brick walls and the warm rustic flooring dating back from 1880's. This modern and historic contrast will leave you feeling nostalgic as you overlook the heart of historic downtown Wilmington from over 12 giant windows across the venue. From our small balcony you can see clear across the Cape Fear River to the USS Battleship NC, so you can see both the hustle and bustle of our town as well as the calming sunset over the river. Photographers love this venue because the sun pours in from the windows and illuminates the space with natural light to capture the most important moments. This makes it the perfect location for hair and make up as well as first looks and family portraits. If you are looking for a space to host an event, we are located in the center of downtown yet the space is private and cozy appealing to all of your guests. Our over 20 ft built in bar is the best set up for buffet style dining or event appetizers as well as a drink station. At Belle we provide it all from the tables, chairs, lounge furniture, linens, dining-ware and glassware etc. so you are stress-free on your big day. We can offer assistance finding the best vendors in Wilmington because we are a part of multiple vendor networks in town.

The Atrium by Ligon Flynn

The Atrium by Ligon Flynn is tucked among the buildings in the heart of historic downtown Wilmington. At one time the building housed livery stables for the downtown community, but by the 1970's the structure had fallen into complete ruin. Architect Ligon Flynn purchased the building in the 19 80's and redesigned it into a contemporary urban garden and office space. After his death in 2010, the garden was discovered by two local wedding professionals who fell instantly in love with the site. In spring of 2011, they acquired the space and have now opened it for wedding ceremonies. The garden is located on second street in the block between Market and Dock. It is one of Wilmington's few contemporary courtyard gardens. Ligon Flynn centered his design on the intersection of people and nature, and that philosophy remains apparent in the Atrium today. The area is filled with natural elements, local foliage, climbing vines, brick masonry, and water combined with the clean lines of modern architecture. The space has a magical quality and has been called "an open-air cathedral,"a hidden treasure,"and "Wilmington's secret garden." Maintaining Ligon's philosophy that humans should be touched by breeze, light, air, and earth, it only seems appropriate that his space be used for one of the most significant moments in a lifetime. The Atrium is currently available for wedding ceremonies, receptions, rehearsal dinners and cocktail parties. Other events, such as concerts, benefits, and private events should inquire about availability.
