My name is John Williams. After 6 years of photographing Weddings on the beaches and historic towns that blanket eastern NC, I wanted to build the most amazing Wedding and Reception venue in North Carolina. I started with the purchase of a five acre riverfront estate that was renamed Abilena Plantation! We went to work furnishing the mansion and improving the grounds by adding walkways and stairways and locations on the waterfront for incredible Weddings! We then remodeled The Carriage House, which was a 1930's horse stable, into the best waterfront reception venue on the coast. We have weddings here every month of the year, and we have packages to fit every budget. Come visit Abilena to see how this charming southern home may be the perfect backdrop for your special day. Thank you for your time. John and Mary Ann Williams/ Owners

|We got married 4/7/12 and would recommend this venue to anyone looking to have an outside wedding. The grounds were beautiful. The owners were wonderful to work with. There is so much included in the price that would be hard to duplicate at another site for the same price! Everyone had a wonderful time.|
