Located just off the Intracoastal Waterway near Oriental, NC, River Dunes is coastal North Carolina's most beautiful waterfront wedding destination. With every imaginable water activity available, the centerpiece of the community is a 400 slip world-class resort marina. Surrounding the harbor is a fully amenitized classic maritime village, featuring a spacious private two story Harbor Club, complete with large porches, fine and casual dining, mineral pool with private cabanas, hot tubs, fireplaces, and pool bar. Adjacent to the Harbor Club is a small, but elegant harborside Chapel, the perfect setting for an intimate indoor or larger outdoor ceremony. The facilities also include charming Guest Cottages and Harbor Homes that provide accommodations for wedding guests or bridal party members, and a Lake House that offers a more casual venue for rehearsal dinners or other special events.

At River Dunes, your wedding can be personalized to fit your style and budget in an unparalleled waterfront location. An onsite chef provides catering that ranges from the most elegant cocktail buffet to a traditional Low Country Boil or Pig Pickin'. Weddings of up to 175 guests can be accommodated in the Harbor Club with options of a tented reception on the Lawn or poolside cocktails.

Wedding reservations and arrangements can be made by calling 1-800-975-9565. Read less

Such a beautiful venue for our wedding, could not have asked for a more perfect place!! There was always constant communication and they were willing to go above and beyond to make us happy. One of the things I loved most about River Dunes was the cottages that are available to rent. We had our entire immediate family & wedding party stay at the venue which made things so much easier, plus the cottage are absolutely ADORABLE! Also, River Dunes does the catering and we received so many compliments on the food. Overall our guest were blown away with River Dunes and my husband and I could not be more satisfied with how our wedding day turned out!

River Dunes offers a premier venue loaded with fun for all parties involved. The groomsmen never had a dull moment as well as the bridal party spending some intimate time in their lavish houses. The chapel, pool, reception hall, and accomodations are so convenient with the harbor begging for attention. Photo opportunities are absolutely endless and the tranquility of River Dunes makes this a must see for potential wedding parties. Inevitably, the bride and groom will enjoy their day together; however, the response from the guests at our wedding regarding how perfect the venue was was truly overwhelming. Each aspect of River Dunes is, without a doubt, worthy of a five-star rating; whether it's the staff, accomodations, views, tranquility, or quality River Dunes is worthy of the praise. We plan on going back each year and will give this same review to all those who ask.

My in-laws hosted our Rehearsal Cocktail Hour as well as sit down dinner at the Harbor Club. The cocktail hour was held outdoor around the pool. Our guests just loved the Cabanas and being able to walk the docks to see all of the gorgeous boats! The nautical atmosphere was superb. The club itself was where we had a formal sit down dinner and we just cannot say enough about the exquisite decor, as if we were sitting in an Architectural Digest magazine. The club is just breathtaking with views of the water from every seat! The staff was helpful and creative and allowed us to create a completely custom menu! Loved everything about it. Just perfect for a large rehearsal dinner or small intimate wedding and reception especially if you love all things nautical!

River Dunes was the perfect venue for our wedding. As soon as we made the first visit, we knew our guests would be blown away by the beauty and tranquilty. Everyone at River Dunes was professional, courteous and made every effort to accommodate our requests to make our wedding week exactly what we envisioned. There has been no detail left undone at River Dunes -- from the quaint guest cottages, the white chapel, the cottage homes, pool and marina to the exceptional food and service. And the calming effects of the natural surroundings left everyone feeling relaxed, even in the midst of wedding chaos. We just cannot say enough about our whole experience, and we have wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. We plan to return to River Dunes as often as possible, and we truly could not think of a more perfect place to have had our wedding.
