    The most beautiful venue!! The owners were easy to work with and always so helpful!

    We fell in love with the venue for the water and lawn space but the upstairs for guest to stay was amazing! My bridesmaids and I had the best time laying by the pool then getting ready together upstairs the night of rehearsal and day of the wedding!! It鈥檚 the perfect venue for the wedding weekend!!

    I had my engagement party at the Watermark Marina and really enjoyed myself! The venue was very nice and spacious including the outside with the pier (nice area to take pictures)! Not to mention Chris and Tina were very helpful with everything and the bartenders the day of the event were great!

    Events at Watermark Marina's reply:

    Shawn,
    We absolutely loved hosting this special occasion for your daughter Roshanna and Jalen. It was a pleasure for me to actually work their event and meet all of their family and friends who came to show their love for them. We can not thank you enough for choosing our venue and putting your trust in us to help make their event one that we hope they will remember for a long time.
    Thank you for the amazing review and I hope that we can host their big day in October of 2018!

We had the honor of doing makeup and hair for a bride at Watermark Marina. They have a wonderful condo upstairs that is huge with a huge balcony overlooking the river- it's gorgeous! The space was perfect to help the wedding party get ready and they had all stayed there the night before- so fun! They had the reception and ceremony areas set up on the lawn and the dock outside and it was absolutely stunning!! I would absolutely recommend this venue to any prospective brides!!

I LOVE this venue and Tina and Chris. I got married last year in NY and if I had to pick a venue in Wilmington. I would pick the marina. It has so much to offer and the coordinators are fantastic and accommodating. whether you are a planner or bride/groom, you will have a great experience doing an event here.
