As a wedding photographer in North Carolina, I’ve had the privilege of capturing countless love stories, each with its own distinct charm and character. Yet, there’s something truly magical about coastal weddings in North Carolina. The River Lodge is the ideal canvas for couples seeking to exchange their vows on the intercoastal waterways near Wilmington. Nestled along the banks of the Cape Fear River, The Landing wedding venue is a hidden gem for couples looking to exchange their vows at a waterfront wedding.

The couple started the day at separate locations at the venue and exchanged a first look on a quiet path near the water. Their wedding ceremony took place at sunset with their closest family and friends. Both pro-claimed Viking nerds, their wedding decor paid homage to their love of Viking traditions. Warm orange and purple flowers accented their tablescapes and flower bouquets while uplighting extended the warmth of the early fall day into the evening. After dinner, not a dry eye was to be found as their closest friends gave toasts to honor their marriage. The evening concluded with dancing and mobile axe throwing for guests to celebrate with.

The River Landing wedding venue is a fantastic location for couples looking for Wilmington vibes but within the countryside. The stunning location holds a plethora of outdoor wedding image opportunities that showcase the intercoastal waterways that Wilmington has to offer. As a Raleigh based wedding photographer, I’m always inspired by the love and beauty that come together on a couple’s special day, and this wedding was no exception. The images captured at The River Landing wedding venue showcase the unique blend of coastal charm and fall elegance, making it a perfect choice for couples seeking timeless, outdoor wedding images in a coastal paradise.
