A Historic East Coast Plantation Wedding Venue | Palo Alto Plantation
The Palo Alto Plantation is a private plantation home sitting on three acres of historic Civil War history and is said to be one of the oldest homes in Onslow County. This charming southern plantation has room to host your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in one location. There is also the option for brides and grooms to marry in a charming little church, the Tabernacle Church, right down the road from the home, followed by a romantic horse and carriage ride back to their reception for that grand entrance.
Rustic charm, romantic details, and historic value all make The Palo Alto unique and amazingly perfect for a one-of-a-kind southern plantation wedding. Stephanie Watson, Creative Designer, of Dream Maker Wedding Estates designed the plantation’s landscaping with a European garden feel in mind. There are three acres of gorgeous designed gardens with antique fountains, complete with a breathtaking sycamore tree-lined entrance. Custom built church pews and an arbor perfectly complete the ceremony site. Handmade farm tables adorn the reception area with bubble lighting over the gorgeous open-air stone patio - perfect for guests to enjoy and dance the night away.
We absolutely love the refurbished fireplaces – there are eight! - And the indoor lounge area complete with romantic chandeliers. The bride will be pampered in her own bridal suite. Convenient private parking is available for guests. Picture opportunities around the plantation are endless for bridal portraits.
Truly a rare find on the crystal coast, The Palo Alto Plantation is part of Dream Maker Wedding Estates, located in Maysville, North Carolina. The special and personal touches that Creative Designer, Stephanie Watson, and her Dream Makers Team put into every wedding held at this historic venue are something a bride and groom will never forget.
This gorgeous plantation is a short drive to Crystal Coast Beaches, Jacksonville and New Bern, North Carolina. The Palo Alto Plantation is located at 1706 Belgrade-Swansboro Road, Maysville, NC.
