The Brooklyn Arts Center at St. Andrews, located in an 1888 historic landmark church that has been thoughtfully and beautifully refurbished as Wilmington, NC's most stunning event venue, can comfortably seat 200 for dinner in the Sanctuary and 40 on the exceptional overlooking balcony. The cathedral ceilings soar 50 feet above the Sanctuary floor and are draped with a fine white fabric, backlit with a professional, state-of-the-art, LED lighting system, that can become whatever color your heart desires.
The arched windows are two stories tall, the walls are original brick and plaster, and 122-year-old stained glass is displayed like fine art. The altar sits beneath a 40-foot, North Carolina-pine arch that adds one-of-a-kind beauty, charm, and unmatched drama to the Sanctuary. A large stage and dance area complement the altar and provide a focus for your celebration.
Right next door is the Church Manse, the historic, century-old home of the St. Andrews reverend. The first floor of the Manse has been designed, decorated, and repurposed as a peaceful retreat and dressing area for the bride, her wedding party, and her family. Behind the Manse is our Courtyard, a large, fenced, private garden that can host 200 for a wedding or cocktail reception.
There is abundant free parking in our neighborhood on North 4th Street, directly across from the venue, or you can park in Historic Downtown Wilmington, two minutes away, and take the free trolley, which stops on North 4th Street in front of the church.
Our reasonable rental fee includes the full use of the Sanctuary, the Manse, and the Courtyard and covers the span of a 12-hour day. As you might imagine, the Brooklyn Arts Center at St. Andrews is a keenly sought after wedding venue. We encourage you to contact us with questions and prospective dates well in advance.
We know how important your wedding is. We offer you the most stunning venue in Wilmington, NC and the Southeast to take the first step on your wonderful new adventure. We look forward to hearing from you.
