ABOUT

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 fancy 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 close to 100 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 2 elopement packages for couples 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 new, cooler and more memorable alternative to a civil courthouse wedding ceremony.

The Coastal Wedding Project will be holding its first Pop Up Wedding this Summer, 2017! The Location will be at Terra Sol Sanctuary, an old church turned Yoga Studio located in the Antique District in Wilmington, NC. The theme is Coastal Bohemian which means neutral wedding decor with splashes of color and touches of macrame throughout! We hand picked a few of our favorite wedding vendors whom we know well and promise that they will far exceed your expectations in every way!

The idea is that our Pop Up Weddings will look and feel as though the couples planned and designed their wedding for months but really all they had to do was choose from a few of our options and show up for their special, stylish  time slot.
