The Palo Alto Plantation

Welcome to The Palo Alto Plantation, your premiere historical wedding plantation venue on the East Coast. This private plantation home sits on three acres of historic Civil War history and is said to be one of the oldest homes in Onslow County.

The Palo Alto Plantation features more than enough room to house a ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in one location. The Mr. and Mrs. also have the option to marry at a sweet little church right down the road from the home and take a romantic horse and carriage ride back to their reception. Imagine your guests dining at our handmade farm tables and dancing the night away on the gorgeous stone patio with bubble lights overhead!

The Palo Alto’s historic value and rustic charm make it the perfect place to exchange vows and celebrate the beginning of your new life together. Prepare to whisk your guests back in time with a rustic wedding at The Palo Alto Plantation on the Crystal Coast.
