A Pleasure Island Beach. Pleasure Island comprises Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, and Fort Fisher. It's a marketing idea to tie the three communities together as they are very close to one another.
Fort Fisher is a fantastic locale for a wedding. You have the Ocean Side and the Cape Fear River Side, two distinct looks for a wedding. We also can use the live oak grove directly across from the Fort Fisher Museum and two small gazebo's to the North and South of the seawall. All these locations require permits so don't just try to sneak in and out. Prices are reasonable to rent the space and it's pretty much no hassle. The beach is wide so tides are not that big a concern, but check them just the same as you will lose some beach during high tide. House rentals units are available or if you or someone you know is military or retired military you can rent out beach houses at the Fort Fisher Air Force Recreation Center, at unbelievable prices. They also have a venue within the recreation center that could be used for a reception. Another option is the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher, you can either get married in the aquarium or (my preferred way), get married on the beach and use the aquarium for your reception. If you have any questions about a Ft. Fisher wedding, give me a shout as I've photographed there many times and am very familiar with the area.
