    Having a Wedding at the Civic Center

    The Civic Center was the perfect place for my wedding. The views were beautiful during the ceremony out on the water. There was the perfect amount of space inside for our reception too! The Civic Center team, Gina and Beverly, set up all the tables and made the centerpieces for them. They did exactly what I asked and they were beautiful! They also made sure everything was in place the day of and went above and beyond to make sure my day was perfect! They will 100% make your wedding day as stress free as possible! I would definitely recommend the civic center to anyone having a wedding!

    Crystal Coast Civic Center's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words Mikayla. Thank you also for trusting us on your most special day. Congratulations!!

    Quad One at the Crystal Coast Civic Center was the ideal venue for my son's rehearsal dinner. The room arrangement was perfect and inviting for the caterer, bar tender, and most important of all, the guest. After dinner, everyone wandered onto the patio to enjoy the spectacular view of Bogue Sound and snap pictures. Gina and staff were so helpful and patient as they guided me through the entire process.

    The civic center was a great place to get married and Gina Clark was amazing throughout the whole experience! Without her my wedding day would not have been as wonderful as it was!
