    Faircloth/Lee Wedding 6/21/19

    Shell Island Resort was beyond amazing!!
    From the event planning over the past 10 months to last minute changes with our wedding reception & guest headcount was seamless. We worked with Alex & Valerie and they both were professional and always willing to make sure we were 100% satisfied.
    While we did use incrediblebeachweddings.com & worked with Tracy for the ceremony package; Shell Island covered everything with the reception, additional space for the bridal party to get ready, our blocked rooms and just overall amazing customer service.
    The rooms were clean and well kept.
    The convenience of having more than enough parking for our family and guests was awesome! We had over 130 people (total) at our wedding & reception.
    The safeness of the resort allowed our children to stick together with the older children and come and go to the pool as they pleased.
    The food was scrumptious too!! The fried chicken, sides & vegetables were well seasoned and very tasteful.
    We would definitely choose Shell Island if we had to do it all over again!

  • Weddings of Topsail Wedding Officiants

    We love Shell Island and have done countless weddings here over the years. It's oceanfront and all rooms are as well! You can house your guests and wedding party in one spot and get married on the beach right outside the hotel. They have nice ballrooms to host your reception right on site. Alex and her team are amazing! You'll be pleased for sure!
