Poplar Grove Plantation is a wedding and event venue in Wilmington, North Carolina. Featuring both indoor and outdoor setup options, the venue allows couples to choose the site which best suits their vision. They can then tailor the space to reflect their preferred theme by working with a planner or simply enlisting the help of loved ones.
Facilities and Capacity
You and your partner can choose between a variety of locations to exchange vows. Both small and large gatherings are possible, with ceremony sites beneath a gazebo, under a red oak tree, and in the courtyard behind the house. After the service, you and your partner can opt for a reception banquet in the manor house or an outdoor tented celebration. The interior of the building features over 3,000 square feet of space for a personalized event. Specialty lighting can be arranged for the festivities, as well as a mobile bar. Additionally, the facility is climate-controlled and contains a flat-screen television that can be used for displaying slideshows. Banquet furniture is also included in the form of round and rectangular tables, and wooden chairs. For an open-air tented reception, much larger gatherings can be accommodated. Tents have a capacity for up to 500 guests and can easily be decorated to reflect your style. Furthermore, parking is plentiful on-site and wheelchair access is available.
In order to assist in producing the best possible event for each couple, the venue permits early setup from 9am on the day of the wedding. An additional hour of rehearsal time is granted the day before the festivities, as well as two hours for photography on a separate day. Couples are free to decorate their chosen space as desired, and can work with florists, planners, and more to bring their vision to life. Outside vendors are permitted throughout the occasion, allowing couples to select the food, music, and more that best represents their style and tastes. The team at the venue will set up the chairs for the ceremony and, upon request, can also arrange tables and chairs for the reception.

Beautiful wedding venue
The Historic Poplar Grove Plantation was without a doubt one of the best decision we made for our wedding. We had our ceremony outside and our reception in the barn that is already decorated with lights. I literally cried when I found this place. Chrissy is one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met and she worked her butt off to make sure our day was perfect (along with her amazing staff!!!) I will always be grateful for the amazing memories from our wedding day! I will forever recommend Chrissy for any event.Sent on 10/25/2019

Chrissy was so very nice, showed us around and gave us a ton of options, and she even gave us some history on the whole place! She even showed us preveious weddings there, to give us an idea of where we could have a ceremony and what it would look like!Sent on 06/11/2019

We LOVE performing weddings at Poplar Grove Plantation. Chrissy and her team are amazing and make it simple! With a gorgeous barn for the reception, beautiful outdoor grounds and a lovely historic home, you'll be pleased!
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!
