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. We have both an indoor and outdoor cocktail space available, allowing you to hold both your ceremony and reception in one venue! We also offer the use of our on-site bridal and groom suites for getting ready on the big day! 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.

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!
