My in-laws live in St. James and we were excited to choose the Chapel in St. James and The Founder's Club for our wedding and reception venues. Our rehearsal dinner was also in St. James at The Reserve Club. I began working with Brandee about 10 months prior to our July 2nd wedding and from the first contact knew that she would be providing a wealth of information. She is extremely professional but very personable as well! Brandee walked me through every single detail from start to finish and helped with the details that I hadn't even thought of! I was able to communicate all my wants and needs to Brandee and feel comfortable that she would deliver on my vision. She even took the time on busy weekends to meet with me several times during the process to walk through details with me as well as answer questions.

We had a very small and intimate wedding and even though our numbers were small, Brandee and her staff never made us feel like we were small. We were made to feel like our party was the most important! Brandee had the same staff that served us for the rehearsal dinner, at out reception as well. I couldn't have been more thrilled! They were prompt, courteous, professional and even remembered our preferences at the reception from being with us the night previous! This team made my husband and I as well as our guests feel like a million bucks!

The presentation and food must also be noted for being beyond excellent. We had the Social Collection Wedding package and everything from the appetizers to the prime rib carving station were spot on and some of the tastiest I've eaten. The action stations were manned by true professionals who were eager to please!

We honestly can't speak highly enough of this venue and its staff. If you are looking to impress your guests as well as be impressed yourself, I don't feel that you could choose a better venue!

My parents own a home in St James and i started reaching out to Brandee for information about 10months BEFORE my 18mth engagement. Brandee has been the most incredible vendor i have ever worked with. We were going to have our ceremony at St James but due to some local construction, had to find another site. she was more than accommodating in our changes. The clubs actually built a brunch menu for us from scratch to include everything we wanted and asked for. The food, both at the rehearsal dinner AND the reception was EXCEPTIONAL. all our guests kept commenting that this was the BEST wedding food they had ever had. It really was!!

Throughout our 2+ year communication, Brandee always responded to my multitude of questions within 48hrs - even on the weekend.

She's kind and loving and the perfect person to do her job. She's also incredibly smart and accommodating. She made our wedding what it was and we cant thank her or the Clubs enough for the fantastic job. Thanks Brandee! We'll miss you!!

From picking a location to nailing down the final details, Brandee Donnelly and her staff at The Clubs were absolutely amazing. They helped us figure out every little detail for our perfect reception. It was also a plus that the Cake and DJ were included in the cost of the venue which made this choice the most affordable and logical one we could've made. We could not have imagined a better place to have our reception. Everyone had a wonderful time and I truly attribute a lot of that credit to Brandee and her team at The Clubs at St. James Plantation. They truly are one of a kind. We would work with them again in a heartbeat.

Having my wedding ceremony and reception with St. James Plantation was the best decision! Brandee was extremely helpful every step of the way. She really made the whole experience a lot less stressful than it would have otherwise been. The price was also very reasonable given everything that was included and the amazing service we received. The food was great as well. Brandee had great ideas about how to decorate the reception space. She also responded to all of my emails in a timely fashion. Everything turned out better than I imagined!

Brandee and Candice did the most amazing job helping me plan my wedding. I was stressed enough with everything else going on the year and a half while planning my wedding but Brandee made sure to take most of that stress away from me by being so helpful and professional!

My parents, fiancé and I all moved to the Wilmington area just about a year before our wedding date. It was very difficult to find wedding vendors because we were not familiar with the area. When I cam across the St. James Plantation website it took away a lot of the stress for me and I had a feeling that this venue would be the one for us. The website was very well constructed and had clearly indicated all the information that I needed to know. Not only was the venue very reasonable in price, it also included other venues such as the a wonderful bakery and DJ. Brandee was very helpful and also recommended other vendors she had worked with for photographers, florists, officiant, etc.

St. James was very accommodating, most of our guests were from out of town, and the guests were welcomed and able to stay on site in beautiful luxurious condo bedrooms. All guest also had the option of playing on the private golf course!

I highly recommend the Clubs at St James Plantation. I would have not been able to put everything together without the help of Brandee, Candice, and everyone else who helped! Thanks again!

A very happy bride :)

Brandee, at the St. James Plantation is wonderful. I'm not sure what we would have done without her. The venue is beautiful but simple however the service is what takes it to the next level.
Every member of the staff was absolutely fantastic and attentive. We were able to customize our menu and the food turned out perfect.

We planned our wedding long distance and pretty much every other vendor we came across in that area was horrible and unresponsive. I would have completely lost it if Brandee wasn't there to help me wrangle everyone up. She even made sure we got a refund when the DJ company they work with, failed to meet their agreement.

One word of advice- If you plan to have out of town guests I would recommend you get a room block at a neighboring hotel. The condo office is very slow and we needed to recheck every reservation once a week to make sure they were accurate, didn't get moved, or cancelled (which happened MANY times).

Overall, our 4 day wedding weekend went smoothly and everyone had a wonderful time.

The Clubs at St James is as picturesque, classy and romantic as it gets. This is all apparent from just driving through the town on the way to the lovely venue. That being said, this review and 5 stars is mainly for Brandee Donnelly, the event coordinator at St James. Brandee is that rare combination of wonderful-at-their-job and overall wonderful person. She absolutely went above and beyond to make sure I had the most stress-free planning experience I could have hoped for. What really made me realize how truly special she is in the wedding world, is when it sunk in the day after the wedding that I never once felt like Brandee had any other wedding going on beside my own. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for making sure our day was perfect!

My event planner at St. James Plantation was just wonderful. She was the only person throughout this process that did not upset me. She had everything worked out for me and was prompt on returning my emails and keeping steady contact with me. My mother even said she wished she had another daughter so she could get married there. We had a wonderful experience and the wedding was beautiful! We now are going to vacation there once a year! Me and my family could not thank them enough!

The Members Club is located in the beautiful St James Plantation in Southport NC. The location made for a perfect setting for a perfect day! The wedding coordinator there (Brandee Donnelly) made planning the wedding a breeze. She also made the day of the wedding no stress at all. She did everything exactly the way i wanted it done. The staff working was also exceptional! They made sure every guest was taken care of, especially the me and my groom. The site is perfect for great pictures inside and outside around the plantation. The food was perfectly cooked and the drinks were strong! I HIGHLY recommend using The Members Club venue for a wedding reception venue.
