    Pemberton Wedding

    I just got married at Embassy Suites Wilmington Riverfront and it was absolutely beautiful. I could not have asked for anything more. The venue was just the right size for my event and the staff were very professional and took care of all our needs. Katherine was great to work with and made my planning a lot less stressful!

    Perfect Wilmington wedding venue

    Our wedding at Embassy Suites was a dream! We live 1.5 hours away from Wilmington and all of our guests were from out of town and having our wedding at a hotel made life SO much easier! There was no transportation to arrange and everything and everyone was at one central location. Our contact at Embassy Suites, Kelly, was incredibly helpful and organized and was quick to respond to my every email. She was also flexible with our schedules since we could only ever meet on weekends. The riverfront location of the hotel was picturesque and our ceremony was held on their gorgeous lawn. Conveniently, cocktail hour was just inside in a beautifully decorated pre-reception area with stunning river views. The ballroom held our 125 guests with no problem and also had two large windows overlooking the river. The food was catered by the in-house restaurant and was delicious!! We even asked the chef if he could prepare a passed hors d'oeuvre that was not on their “menu” and he was able to accommodate! Guests raved about the location and loved staying right on the riverwalk and being able to walk to all of the city’s best shops and restaurants. The hotel rooms are large and comfortable and getting ready upstairs the morning of the wedding was very convenient. The hotel even offered a large meeting room space for the guys to get ready. Their rooftop bar, Cloud 9, was the icing on the cake and was the perfect location for our wedding after-party! You can’t beat the views from up there. Overall, Embassy Suites was a prime location for our wedding and I am so glad we chose it for our big day!
