Although Beachside Occasions specializes in wedding ceremonies on the beach, we have yet to find a location we can’t accommodate. Three of our four pavilions include floating platforms allowing us to set-up on virtually any flat surface without leaving a mark. From gardens and ballrooms to verandas and piers we provide unique ceremony set-ups that are sure to please!

When Samantha and Johnny contacted us looking for a secluded waterfront ceremony we knew the perfect spot. Nestled in the shoreline of the Cape Fear River at the intersection of Independence Blvd and River Road is a 20-acre waterfront oasis.  The immense 480-foot pier is perfect for brides desiring a private waterfront ceremony free from sand and onlookers.  There is also a large clubhouse onsite for receptions. Four spacious suites on the second floor provide overnight accommodations and a space to get ready prior to the ceremony.  Watermark Marina is it truly is the perfect alternative to sand and surf.

The father of the bride owns Fish Bites, one of the best seafood restaurants in town so naturally his crew provided the catering.  Although I know he hated to forgo a busy Saturday night crowd, he actually closed for the wedding and brought the entire staff to Watermark Marina.  This proud father allowed the bride and groom, who also work at the restaurant, to select an incredible menu which included every kind of seafood imaginable and the most delicious looking spread we have ever seen.

Kim & Mike | June 30, 2012

1 Jul

Hottest day of the year to date!  Fortunately we had a nice breeze as well as plenty of parasols and bottled water to go around.  Favorite moments included the Jr. Bridesmaids with their mini parasols, Kim’s grand walk down the pier and Mike’s smile when he first saw his bride.
