About Fort Fisher State Historic Site

Shaded by gnarled live oaks, scenic views of the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean, and two waterfront gazebos, Fort Fisher State Historic Site can make you wedding teh place to start your family history.

During the American Civil War, Fort Fisherwas constructed near one of the two outlets to the Atlantic Ocean from the Cape Fear River. It was to become the largest and most important earthwork fort in the South and kept the port of Wilmington, North Carolina open to blockade runners supplying necessary goods to Confederate armies.

Two major battles were fought there, and many Union soldiers received the Congressional Medal of Honor for their gallant participation in that fighting. When FortFisher fell after a massive Federal amphibious assault on January 15, 1865, its defeat helped seal the fate of the Confederacy. This site has been declared national historic landmark. Along with a restored palisade fence, approximately ten percent of the fort still stands since much of it has been eroded by the ocean.

FortFisher State Historic Site is located in Kure Beach on what was then known as Federal Point and today as PleasureIsland. We have multiple locations for a wedding that you can choose from such as ocean front gazebos, beach areas, or maritme forest groves. Tours of the wedding locations are offered to assist you in choosing the right place for your special moment.

    Would highly recommend for any event!

    The coordinator worked with us and was extremely helpful and patient. I loved the simple rules they had to conserve the beautiful grove. I would highly recommend for a beautiful and peaceful beach wedding!

    Fort Fisher served as our ceremony site. We could not have asked for a more incredible place to say our I do's. The weather was perfect and the scenery could not be matched. We got married at the Grove on the riverside of the historic site, behind the museum in the old oak trees. Si Lawrence was amazing to work with and very friendly. Definitely recommend this spot if you're looking for a fairy-tale type ceremony that feels intimate and magical!

    We LOVE Fort Fisher so so much, and anyone who visits will quickly feel the same way! Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful! We had our ceremony on the waterway side, so it would be a little more private and away from the road, and it couldn't have been more perfect! You pay the State a small fee for a permit just for the location, you just need chairs/altar, and the site's beauty gives you all the decor you need!
