Formerly a Catholic church, this beautifully-restored, 1847 venue is located in the heart of historic downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. Our exposed brick walls, stained glass windows, high ceilings and balcony loft make Saint Thomas a perfect backdrop for your wedding festivities. We accomodate ceremonies and receptions for up to 200 seated guests. Our rental rate includes tables and chairs for all 200 and use of the facility for 18 hours so that you can set up and decorate all day at no extra charge. Our downstairs cocktail room and bridal suite are popular features, allowing you to hold both your ceremony and reception in one venue.
As of 2014, Saint Thomas Preservation Hall now offers catering through City Club of Wilmington. Our catering is full service with a variety of menu options available, or the option to create your own. Prices are available upon request.

Amazing Venue and Wedding Coordinator
I cannot recommend Saint Thomas enough! This venue was incredibly beautiful! The rental time was longer than any other venue that we looked at. We were able to get ready at the venue, so I was about to see the set up before everyone arrived which put me at ease and made me feel very comfortable in there. My bridesmaids and I essentially spent the entire day at the venue. The tables and chairs came with the rental as well. The staff was accommodating and very helpful. We used the coordinator, Kayla, who works directly for the venue. She helped out so much and our wedding would not have been possible without her!Sent on 01/23/2020

A Natural Beauty
STPH was amazing. The exposed brick and natural beauty of this venue is priceless. We did not have to decorate much as the venue is so gorgeous all on its own. The space is available for both the ceremony and reception which made it easy for guests. My bride also had a suite to get ready in. It is also convenient to downtown Wilmington and walking distance to bars, restaurants, and the river. Our coordinator, Poppy was so helpful and offered so many creative ideas for us to utilize. She made sure our day was perfect. I will never forget this day and the beauty of this building. I highly recommend.Sent on 12/03/2018

Beautiful historic venue that is now run by the folks at the City Club. If you're looking for that old school feel with tall ceilings and beautiful brick walls (which look beautiful with some specialty gobos and lighting) look no further.
St Thomas Preservation Hall is a gorgeous venue....brick interior walls, stained glass windows. A stunning backdrop for your wedding, we've performed many weddings here. You'll be pleased! Reception and ceremony space available. Great Downtown location steps from the Cape Fear River!
One of our favorite places to do events. Has so much potential to work with!
