The Coastal Wedding Project is a kinda crazy yet kinda magical idea that Martha had...

After hearing about the popularity of elopements across the country and remembering the story of my parent's near courthouse elopement (the judge told them to go home and plan a real wedding!) I thought, why can't we host a stylish elopement here in Wilmington, NC? Our little town on the coast has so much charm and has grown to be one of the most popular wedding destinations across the state!

Martha My Dear Rentals has participated in over 150 weddings and events over the last few years and we feel confident that we can help couples throw a magical celebration of love because we believe that even the smallest budgets and weddings deserve huge amounts of style.

How It all Works...

A Pop Up Wedding is an intimate wedding of about 20 of your closest friends and family planned, decorated and executed from start to finish by Martha My Dear Rentals. We will be offering various elopement packages to choose from and will host up to 3 separate and individualized weddings on the same day. The Coastal Wedding Project allows couples to marry quickly, worry free and at a fraction of the price because they are in fact sharing the costs with other couples.  We like to think it is a cooler and more memorable alternative to a civil courthouse wedding ceremony.

The Coastal Wedding Project will hold just 1 Pop Up Wedding this year on August 30th, 2019!
