East Coast Destination Wedding - Courtyard Marriott Jacksonville
With couples trying to save money and focusing less on weddings and more on honeymoons and vacations, destination weddings and elopements are becoming more prominent in the wedding world. Because of this, venues are having to adapt and evolve, and that is exactly what The Courtyard by Marriott in Jacksonville, North Carolina, has done.
A fifteen-to-twenty-minute drive from Camp Lejeune, Camp Johnson, New River Air Station, and Camp Geiger, Courtyard by Marriott is one of the newest hotels in the Jacksonville area. The hotel boasts a state-of-the-art lobby, on-site Bistro, top-of-the-line guest rooms, and modernized event space.
With an emphasis on events and weddings, Courtyard by Marriott has created a special event space that is perfect for weddings of any size, especially for couples wishing to have a destination wedding or an elopement. The indoor-outdoor event space is 8,000 sq. feet with 4,000 sq. feet of divisible space, and includes a heated dipping pool, stoned cabana, and flat-screen TV. The hotel offers tailored catering menus to satisfy your needs, and flexible floor plans to match any type of wedding.
Recently, the Courtyard by Marriott has created a new all-inclusive elopement package. The package includes a 2-hour ceremony and cocktail hour, photographer, officiant, champagne toast, 2-tier cake, and hor d’oeurves.
Courtyard by Marriott-Jacksonville is also participating in the WCWV Engagement Contest, and is giving one lucky couple a complimentary one night stay including 2:00 pm check-out, breakfast-in-bed, couple's choice of wine, champagne or apple cider, rose petals, strawberries, and candles.
