About Historic Poplar Grove Plantation

Generations of couples have been married at this treasured family home. On the National Register of Historic Places, a wedding at one of the North Carolina’s oldest former peanut plantations is an opportunity to create your vision upon a blank canvas, whether you’re planning a rehearsal dinner, wedding and/or reception.

With a stunning view of the Manor House's double piazzas, wedding ceremonies at Poplar Grove provide an intimate and natural setting for any occasion. Catering to couples who favor rustic elegance, Poplar Grove is an amazing backdrop for your fall, winter, spring or summer wedding.

Each couple has the opportunity to share their special day unique to their personality and style by choosing their own caterer, band, photographer, event planner, florist, and tent rentals. We have on site tables and chairs included with your package.

Additionally, there are more than one place to stage your wedding ceremony, such as the gazebo, back courtyard of the Manor House, or under the Red Oak tree. Poplar Grove can accommodate the most ceremonial or most informal weddings.

Unique to your experience is the Manor House bridal suite. For an additional fee you and your wedding party can dress and prepare all the final touches before descending down the main staircase of the Manor House. There is also a gentlemen’s morning room.

For a dramatic reveal, choose to exit from the front or back porches to meet your family and friends who have come to celebrate your special day.

By appointment only to tour our facilities. For more information, call Christina Fennell at 910.686.9518 x 101 or email chrissy@poplargrove.org

    If you are looking to have a dream wedding, Poplar Grove is your place! The property and everything on it is beautiful and so well kept. They were so flexible with letting us decorate, which really took away a lot of the stress from our big day. Another stress reliever is that they not only have multiple places for you to have your ceremony, they also have the perfect place for your reception. Being able to utilize the same venue for both made everything so much easier on everyone. They even have a backup barn that can be utilized in the event that it rains on your special day (and the barns are so beautiful so I wouldn't have even been sad if we had to do our ceremony in the barn versus outside due to rain). One of the BEST features of Poplar Grove is Chrissy. She is the most sweet, helpful, and supportive person you will ever meet. She was there to assist us every step of the way and did everything in her power to make our day less stressful and oh so perfect. She was simply the best! If you want a beautiful, affordable, convenient, and all around perfect place for your wedding, Poplar Grove is definitely for you!

    Just got married at Poplar Grove Plantation this past April
    It was beautiful day, and everyone had so much fun!
    Chrissy is super nice and joy to work with,
    she went above and beyond, to accommodate our needs, and advised us.
    Our reception was inside the barn, and ceremony outside by the gazebo.
    Manor house is absolutely stunning for your bridal pictures.
    Don't think twice, pick Poplar Grove for your wedding!

    Thanks

    I am very pleased after working with Poplar Grove for our October 2017 wedding. Chrissy is amazing at her job! We booked the venue a little over two months before our wedding date. I explained to Chrissy we had gotten quickly engaged and now we needed to get married quickly because my husband had to report to his new station at the end of October! She gave me many options to choose from in October and even immediately called me when one opened up in September! We ended up choosing a Sunday and couldn't have been more pleased. We invited about 180 and around 120 came and the venue size was perfect for us(ceremony outside, reception inside the barn) We also got a military discount which was very kind. One of my favorite parts of the venue was how there was so much decor to rent, cocktail tables, chairs, etc. It was all very reasonably priced! Chrissy allowed us to view various rentals before the wedding date, choose our ceremony site, and the barn layout. She was always very accommodating especially on the wedding day! She was around for setup, my wedding was mostly diy and she was kind enough to even help my family during set up! Definitely one of the kindest people we hired for the wedding!!! I highly recommend using this venue for your special day. Chrissy works so hard at making your day as amazing as possible. I cannot thank her enough for how special she made our wedding day!

    Poplar Grove is a beautiful venue both inside and out! The historic house is a wonderful backdrop to great indoor or outdoor weddings that provides a great experience for the wedding clients as well as great imagery for photographers. Sometimes the peacocks will even pop through for a photo op! Highly recommended venue in the Wilmington area.

    A beautiful, southern-style plantation home and estate! Everywhere I turned I saw a photo op. The popular vintage-style of photography and editing today pairs perfectly with this type of venue. You will not be disappointed!
