About Abilena Plantation Waterfront Weddings and Receptions on the coast of NC

Abilena Plantation was built overlooking the Neuse River just south of New Bern NC in 1927. It is a wonderful wedding venue because you can actually stay in the mansion for the weekend! Our weddings are outdoors but we have a waterfront pavillion that is used for the receptions and the ceremony in case of bad weather. We include tables and chairs for 120 guests and offer photography and recommend wedding planning, DJ, caterers,wedding and grooms cakes, and catering. The property feels like it is right out of The Great Gatsby and the weddings here will never be forgotten. Just ask your self, do you want your wedding to last four hours or four days?

    Beautiful venue with amazing, responsive owners!! Me and my husband got married at Abilena in February. We rented the venue and the mansion, which allowed our immediate families to stay with us at the venue for the entire weekend. This option is extremely convenient and the house is beautiful; it is an older house so it takes a minute or two for warm water to reach the showers but there was plenty of warm water for all 10 of us to shower every morning. When we arrived on Friday morning, the owners were prepping the yard and landscaping to make sure everything was at its best for our wedding on Saturday. The location has a pool and a hot tub, and even though it was out of season, they ensured the pool was clean and presentable. The views from the house that overlook the water is breath taking. We had our ceremony down my the water; they have a great set up there with benches and an arch so we did not have to worry about setting up the area for the ceremony, other than our decorations. We planned to have the cocktail hour by the pool; however it was too cold that day so we were easily able to move it into the 1st floor of the house. This space worked well for the cocktail hour and allowed our guests to enjoy the beautiful house. We had our reception in the carriage house, which also overlooks the water. This venue is great for any weather as it is covered and has removable plastic panels and heaters for cold weather. Since it was cold, we had the panels up and heaters running- this really kept the area warm for our guests. The owners, John and Mary Ann, were really a pleasure to work with. We were able to see the venue a few times prior to our wedding to help us plan the decorations. They answered every question we had. They were there the day of the wedding to make sure things were running smoothly. I highly recommend this venue- you will not be disappointed with the location, the spaces available, and the owners.

    We had a great time at Abilena Plantation. Everything we asked for was taken care of in a timely manner and we couldnt ask for a more perfect setting for our wedding.

    We had our reception at Abilena and stayed there with our families a few days before. It was so wonderful taking some time to relax with our families in such a beautiful place! We even had our guests over the Thursday before for a pool party! The venue is beautiful and took our pictures to the next level. John was attentive and came at least once each day to ensure the grounds were looking their best. This was the absolute perfect venue for us and I wouldn't have changed a thing!
