This was the absolutely perfect house for our big day...really big week! Having every event & all our close friends and family under one roof made the week of our wedding so enjoyable for everyone. We even rented out at least 5-6 surrounding houses to make it really intimate. There was no stress...just fun!!! We took over the tiki bar that was located just a stones throw from Southern Grace. It was fantastic!!! My aunts hosted my bridesmaid luncheon in the 3rd floor kitchen area, and the ceremony was on the beach right outside the house, and the reception took place under the house and around the pool area. We fit 130 guests comfortably. It was absolutely perfect & Greg and Craig were awesome to work with. This house gives every guest their own private bathroom and half your guests have a private balcony. It truly was a dream with beauty and accommodations for folks of all ages!!Sent on 02/16/2016

Perfect Place for a Wedding
Southern Grace in North Topsail was the most perfect place for our wedding on May 11, 2019. We had a largish wedding and comfortably sat 131 guests under the house (we had 15 round tables seating 8 and a head table seating 20). Greg, my contact for the house was always very helpful and quick to respond to any questions I emailed. Greg also emailed a list of vendors that helped start my search for all that was needed for the wedding. The house was amazing! Everyone that stayed was amazed that we didn't feel like we were on top of each other with 60 people sleeping in the house. We had family and friends travel from California, Wyoming, Massachusetts, Vermont, Georgia, Kansas, Colorado, Michigan, Tennessee, and North Carolina to celebrate with us and everyone had such a blast. My family is very interested in coming back for one of our family reunions in the near future. North Topsail is still recovering from the 2018 hurricanes and it is obvious that some places have had dramatic beach front changes. We planned closely with the tide and had more than enough room to get married at 5:00pm on the beachfront in front of the house. The pool was also a big hit and it was really nice to have an elevator available to move our goods up and down the house throughout the week. Family and friends are the most important things in our lives and being able to spend quality time over a week with everyone, instead of have everything go by in a fast blur over 6 hours for a wedding is one of the biggest blessings Southern Grace provided to us. We are very thankful to have had the opportunity to have had our wedding there and looking back we would not change one single thing. I hope we can make it back sooner rather than later.Sent on 05/20/2019
