The Brooklyn Arts Center, located in Wilmington NC’s historic downtown area is an incredible story of rebirth and renovation- the old church sat vacant and in disrepair for years before it was purchased and given new life as a wedding and event space. It quickly became one of the most beautiful downtown wedding venues in Wilmington. With giant vaulted ceilings, exposed brick, courtyards and urban southern character everywhere you look, this wedding spot is an absolute must see if you are planning to get married in southeastern NC and considering the historic downtown area. The large event space both indoors and out makes it the perfect venue larger weddings, and the amazing natural light that pours through the cathedral windows is a photographers dream and a beautiful place for engagement, bridal and wedding photography. Just walking the Brooklyn Arts Center grounds for a few minutes will make this wedding venue a top of the list option if you are looking for a downtown Wilmington venue with the options for both indoor weddings and outdoor weddings as well. The Brooklyn Arts Center staff is always incredibly helpful, and we always love shooting weddings here. It is one of the few downtown Wilmington wedding venues that can host larger weddings, with easy proximity to hotels, restaurants and breweries so your guests will have plenty to see and do leading up to and after the wedding. And although the Brooklyn Arts Center is known for it’s character and flexible space, it also sits in a really neat spot in the downtown area so there are many options for photography during a wedding day- many within walking distance. Of all the different spots inside and around the Brooklyn Arts Center to have your wedding ceremony, probably my favorite is beneath the cathedral windows on the side wall. In my opinion, It is the perfect backdrop for a gorgeous Brooklyn Arts Center wedding.
