Beyond spectacular! Words can't describe!
Marker 137 is a beautiful venue! Our wedding was a dream come true! Anna is a tremendous host and person! She went above and beyond what was expected to ensure we had the best day of our lives, AND we did! We had 180 guests and each one of them has told us that not only was the venue spectacular but that they loved Anna. It's hard to truly put into words how much we love Anna and how grateful we are for everything she did for us. From the very beginning, Anna was attentive to our needs and wants. She worked her tail off to make all of our wishes come true. All we can say is that if you choose Marker 137 as your venue it will be the best decision you ever made! Anna, we love you and we can't thank you enough for making our day one to remember! We all consider you family now!!!! Thank YOU! XOXOSent on 10/02/2019

I got married this past Saturday at Marker 137! There are not enough words to describe the amazing experience I had. Anna, that owns the property is one of the most incredible people I have ever met. She goes above and beyond to make sure your wedding day is all that you want it to be. She definitely did that for my husband and I. She is definitely considered family at this point! I met Anna about year and half ago and I knew from the moment I stepped on her property that I would be getting married there! After I booked she told me she had a big surprise and that Marker 137 would be getting a dock and it would be ready for my wedding. She would text pictures and keep me updated on the progress. I can't wait to see my pictures my husband and I took on the dock. I called her so much leading up to my big day and she always answered promptly and let me make 100 trips to the venue to finalize details. She worked so hard the week leading up to my wedding day blowing leaves, mowing grass, and watering flowers. Anna now allows the house on the property to be rented with the venue. That allowed me to enjoy everything Marker 137 had to offer for a week. The morning before my wedding I sat on the dock and went fishing with my dad! Talk about one of the best memories. If you are looking for the best venue with the best views look no further and BOOK NOW! Anna and her staff will make sure your day is perfect! You won't have to worry about a thing. Anna, I honestly can not thank you enough!Sent on 04/24/2017

We found Marker 137 very easy to work with. They were responsive to phone calls, emails and questions. They were present before and during our event (a rehearsal dinner for 150). Despite a deluge about an hour before it started, we had a great party! They helped us work with other vendors and made allowances for special needs as well. The event space is spectacular, right on the waterway. Ours was an evening event in June and fans made the temperature bearable and we didn't have a problem with bugs. We had one problem with the fans, but High Performance Lighting came when contacted by Marker 137 and worked it out!Sent on 02/01/2017

Marker 137 is one of the most gorgeous spots right in the heart of Wilmington. With it being right off the intracoastal waterway, the scenery cannot be beat. I would recommend this charming venue to anyone!
Marker 137 is a fabulous venue on the Intracoastal Waterway for outdoor weddings. It is also available for private photo sessions including bridal portraits, family sessions, engagements and senior portraits. Dogs and horses are welcome for photo sessions too! Many Marker 137 photos on my website www.GoodCallPhotography.smugmug.com
Marker 137 is an absolute beautiful location. As a photographer, I appreciate the natural beauty and gorgeous light that this venue has to offer. The trees, water, and grounds are all truly inspiring every time I shoot there. Not to mention, the swing is so perfect for portraits. I highly recommend this location for a private and gorgeous event.
