Wedding – Early Info

We’re getting married in October!


Hope you’ve received your Save the Date! Invites have not been sent yet, but here is some information for the early planners:

The wedding will be at Fort Fisher Aquarium in Kure Beach, on October the 20th at 6:30 PM.

The closest airport is Wilmington International. It is 20 miles/35 minutes from Carolina Beach.

  • As you plan your flights, please consider joining us at the Sea Witch on Friday, October 19 at 8:00 pm. We look forward to spending time chatting with everyone before the big day.

We have a hotel block at two hotels in Carolina Beach:

  • Courtyard by Marriott We will be staying here as it is within walking distance of the Sea Witch and the Fat Pelican (where we will gather post-wedding on Saturday night. The rate is $169/night for standard rooms and $199 for Queen Suite rooms. All rooms are considered ocean front.
  • The Golden Sands This is another great option. Will all ocean front rooms, this hotel is slightly closer to the aquarium than the Courtyard by Marriott. The rooms here are $99/night but you must stay Friday and Saturday to get the discounted rate. Single nights will be at the regular rate. All rooms are considered ocean front.

A note about the location: while Ubers, Lyfts, and Taxis are available on the island, they often take a long time to arrive. You may want to consider renting a car to explore the island and Wilmington over the course of the weekend.

Invites will be coming via snail mail, with a link to a page with more information and a digital RSVP. If you don’t get your invite in the mail by the end of summer, reach out to us at, or!
