I don't even know where to start with describing how wonderful my experience was with the team here. When we first booked this venue, we were working with another girl, Brittni. Somewhere in the middle of our planning, Elena took over and was absolutely amazing to work with. She continued to answer each and every email promptly and jam packed with ideas. Since we were planning our wedding as a destination wedding, I relied heavily on email throughout our planning experience. When we arrived to town for our wedding week, they even helped us unload my car full of wedding stuff. We were able to meet with the staff on Friday in the afternoon before the big day to go over the little details with them. However, on the day of, the ballroom looked even better than I could have imagined! They went above and beyond my wedding dreams to create the most perfect setting I could ever imagine for our reception. The team worked closely with my other vendors, helping to intercept deliveries as they arrived so I could relax with my bridal party and enjoy the day. Our ceremony on the beach was gorgeous, the cocktail hour on the pool deck was set up so nicely and it seemed our guests had a great time. The food is awesome here, unlike typical hotel entrees! We did plated dinners with potato encrusted grouper, marinated flank steak and the chicken tuscany. We also had them serve out late night appetizers of quesadillas on our dance floor, which guests really loved. I cannot thank the Courtyard staff enough!! I highly recommend this venue if you're looking for a professional, well organized team to help you plan out your perfect day!Sent on 07/21/2016

I was in pure panic mode, when a week before my wedding I ended up with no wedding venue. Thank goodness for Nellie, who came to my rescue. She was very quick to respond and very efficient. When I told her of my woes, she was very understanding and reassuring. Nellie went above and beyond to ensure my day was as seamless and stress free as possible. I don't know what I would have done without her assistance and calm guidance.Sent on 12/14/2017

Beautiful event venue with a great staff on hand! If your looking to book your Wedding reception in the Wilmington area, definitely check them out!
I wanted to endorse the folks at Courtyard by Marriott at Carolina Beach especially Nellie who is the event coordinator. I met with them before a wedding I did this past weekend & they have a great staff & very accommodating. I look forward to working other events with this team! Thanks Daniel Palattella
I have had the pleasure of performing several wedding ceremonies at the Courtyard By Marriott Carolina Beach and I have to say the staff is amazing. I've seen the venue needing to be changed quickly from an outside ceremony to an inside and without a blink they had it done and in such a way you would never know the original plan was anything different. One instance that stands out to me is a time due to unforeseen circumstances the music the bride was to enter in was not available. As we discussed the options one of the Marriott team members spoke up and said she could sing! Wow! Her voice and the gesture were absolutely beautiful. If you want professionals who can make it happen & happily just reach out to the Courtyard by Marriott Carolina Beach.
