2014 Wilmington NC Wedding Expos

Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach are becoming more and more popular wedding destinations. One of the best ways to sort through the noise of a ton wedding vendors’ websites is to attend a Wilmington NC Wedding Expo and meet the experts first hand. And we’ve put together all of the one’s scheduled for 2014.

Once you choose your date and your venue, make sure to reserve your transportation as early as possible to make sure the date and vehicle you desire is available. We find that many brides prefer our luxury Mercedes-Benz Sprinters over a traditional limo. We have several style vehicles available that seat from 12-24.
