The second story of Bluewater, an open and airy event space, offers a stunning venue perfect for receptions of all sizes. With vaulted ceilings and sprawling windows offering stunning vistas of the waterway, this space is one of the largest venues in Wilmington, capable of fitting over 170 guests.
A dynamic space with handsome porches wrapping both sides of the venue and overlooking the marina and waterway; Bluewater is the perfect spot for those magical sunset pictures with bride, groom and wedding party. The space features sea glass inspired chandeliers that emit a soft amber glow, reflected in the floor to ceiling windows.
Couples that want a wedding on the waterway will be pleased to know that Bluewater has a new pavillion, perfect for the ceremony, between the restaurant and the neighboring marina. Bluewater is known for its food and its incredibly talented culinary team. It almost goes without saying that the food is always mouth-watering. The menu is adaptive and the head chef and events team work with the couple to craft a menu that fits perfectly with their palate and the dietary needs of the guests.
Bluewater is part of a family of some of Wilmington’s best restaurants including the Oceanic, Henry’s, and Hops Supply Co. This means that no matter what a couple dreams of for their wedding week or weekend, the team that works with them is well-equipped, experienced and dedicated to perfecting every detail of every event. From the couple’s first dance to those tranquil moments on the porch, to the feasting and toasting and being filled with the love of family and friends, Bluewater Waterfront Grill is the perfect place for any bride’s Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach wedding needs.
