Church + Manse Suite
The Brooklyn Arts Center, located in an 1888 historic landmark church that has been thoughtfully and beautifully refurbished as Wilmington, NC’s, most stunning event venue; can comfortably accommodate up to 250 guests. The 60-foot cathedral ceilings are draped with white fabric and back-lit by a state-of-the-art, LED lighting system that can turn the entire ceiling whatever color your heart desires.
The arched windows are two stories tall, the walls are original brick and plaster, and 130-year-old stained glass is displayed like fine art. The 35-foot, North Carolina-pine altar adds one-of-a-kind beauty, charm, and unmatched drama to the church. A large stage, dance floor, and fabulous balcony complement the altar and provide additional charm and party space.
Right next door to the church 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, salon, and dressing area for the bride, her wedding party, and her family.
Our rental fee includes the full use of the church, the manse, and the courtyard with a 15-hour timeframe. It’s your day; the last thing we want is for you to feel hurried. Slow down and enjoy every moment.
