A sign from this weekend’s wedding expresses exactly how we feel about River Dunes!
In April 2012, a beautiful bride and handsome groom tied the knot at River Dunes.The entire wedding was spectacular, from the adorable decor to the sassy hot pink and navy color theme used throughout.It was an unforgettable weekend – very photogenic.In fact, it was such a great photo shoot that a local bridal magazine featured the wedding in a recent issue.Congrats, Kelly and Myron, and cheers to the perfect wedding at River Dunes!
The last wedding of 2012 at River Dunes was especially meaningful to the staff, because the groom is a local firefighter.He was one of the many wonderful volunteer firemen who answered the call when the Coastal Living Idea House was destroyed by lightning in July of 2010.He and a few other skilled firefighters protected our nearby guest cottages, which sustained only minimal damage.
We are so delighted that the beautiful bride, a radiation therapist at the local hospital, and her handsome groom chose River Dunes as the venue for their special day!
This past weekend at River Dunes, the handsome son of one of our homeowners married his lovely bride under a perfect Carolina blue sky.The couple got engaged at River Dunes, and their first dance was to “Carolina on My Mind”.The wedding went off without a hitch, the party was great, and we wish Sean and Alyssa a lifetime of happiness.
An exciting tidbit from the weekend – the cake and cupcakes were prepared by The Wild Cupcake, winner of Cupcake Wars on The Food Network.They were definitely award-winning – YUM!
Our first wedding of the spring season was absolutely perfect!Beautiful bride, handsome groom, gorgeous weather, great food and tons of fun.Enjoy a few casual photos from the reception.
The Lakehouse at River Dunes was the perfect setting for a recent outdoor rehearsal dinner.Guests gathered to enjoy the beautiful sunset while sampling Chef Robert’s steamed oysters, served on our unique oyster tables.
A Low Country Boil, featuring shrimp, potatoes, corn and sausage was the main course, with key lime and Snickers cheesecakes for dessert.Later in the evening, toasts around the bonfire honored the bride and groom.Perfect weather, great food and a beautiful location made this evening truly unforgettable.
A balmy weekend in September provided beautiful weather and River Dunes provided a perfect venue for a recent weekend of family celebrations.On Friday night, an engagement party was held for Ben and Anna on the pool deck, featuring lobster rolls (she’s from Maine) and barbecue (he’s from NC).Music was provided by a Night Cruise, a beach music band, with the father of the groom on drums!
On Saturday, the father of the groom, Steve, married Leta in a beautiful, intimate family ceremony at the Chapel, followed by a reception in the Harbor Club.Ben walked Leta down the aisle.It was an unforgettable weekend filled with truly happy memories for father, son, bride, and bride-to-be, and River Dunes was delighted to be part of it!

Words from the Mother of the Bride about a recent River Dunes wedding:
“I can’t say enough about the venue and staff at River Dunes.My daughter, who is in the Coast Guard, called me from her ship and said I had 7 weeks to plan a wedding for her and her fiance in or around New Bern, preferably by the water.The staff worked with me tirelessly to get all of this accomplished all in time and the wedding went off flawlessly.I would recommend River Dunes to anyone that wants a special place on the water with a nautical ambience which suited our daughter perfectly.”
