The Inside Scoop
FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
The Beam Room in Wilmington, North Carolina, takes care of everything for your wedding day, so that you don't have to. That way, you don't feel overwhelmed and get to spend time enjoying the process of getting married instead. Rather than contacting endless separate vendors, take your special someone out for a movie and dinner while The Beam Room handles the little details for you.
Situated in a coastal city on the banks of the Cape Fear River, this venue reflects the architecture and elegance of the city's historical downtown area. Whether you're planning a traditional black-tie affair or a chic wedding ceremony and reception, The Beam Room creates the ambience that you need.
A private location, The Beam Room is specially suited to intimate weddings with your closest friends and family members. Up to 150 people fit comfortably for a cocktail-style reception, or about 100 for a seated dinner. Having a smaller guest list is preferable for many couples, since it lets them feel more relaxed during their wedding day, and it also means they don't have to worry about sending out hundreds of invitations. When the event is focused more on making the bride and groom feel as happy and stress-free as possible, it tends to create positive memories that are reminisced by all present for a long time.
For an even more distinctive and romantic atmosphere, take advantage of The Beam Room's audio/video equipment to set the mood with soft jazz or classic rock. Don't forget to include your song as a couple in the mix! You can also play everything from pictures you took while dating to personalized dedication videos that add a special touch to the occasion.
What You Should Know
At The Beam Room, when the staff says they take care of everything, they mean it. A rehearsal dinner is included, and there is space for your ceremony and wedding reception as well. They also handle everything related to catering the entire event. Depending on your preferences, choose brunch, a buffet package, elegant meals, desserts, coffee, drinks and hors d'oeuvres.
Of course, it's important to select and communicate your ideal menu to the staff in advance. In most cases, you'll have to choose your main courses from a list of entrées that they've prepared, but they are flexible enough to include special requests if you let them know beforehand. Everything is sophisticated and well-plated.
If you decide to bring your own digital music, videos or slideshows to use during the ceremony or reception, contact the events coordinator to ask which file types are compatible with the systems.
There are a lot of things that make The Beam Room a dynamic locale that can be perfect for your wedding, including allowing your guests to choose exactly what they want to order from the three entrees that you select. Everyone gets their own plate of food, freshly cooked, just for them.
Other perks include:
- Ceremony officiating offered by ordained brewmaster Kevin Kozak
- Ice sculptures

These guys were simply amazing! We rented out the beam room for our rehearsal dinner and it was stunning! They were extremely accommodating and the food could not have been any better! And in top of the food, we also got full access to their local brews which are delicious!! We also used the beam room for our bartending at the offsite wedding. They were extremely professional and had a great time along with us! We even got to bring some of those local brews with us to the wedding site. Delicious! It was such a great experience working with these guys. They never got annoyed by my overly involved personality or by all of my questions. They were super awesome in every way and I highly recommend these guys for all of your catering, bartending, and rehearsal dinner needs!
Excellent venue!Reviewed on 4/22/2014 Julie
We used the beam room upstairs for our spring wedding rehearsal dinner. The food was absolutely fabulous and the wait staff was so attentive. We were very pleased with the service of this venue. The staff even had great music playing, very fitting for a wedding setting. We were able to set up our rehearsal dinner at 9:30 in the morning with no problem and carry on about our day as we wished without having to wait until a certain time so that we could set up. Very nice venue!!
Awesome Reception Space!Reviewed on 5/02/2012 Alexis F
We held our reception in the Beam Room at the brewery and it was beautiful. Plenty of space for a smaller crowd, we had 55, and the food was excellent. Staff was so helpful with everything including decorating! Highly recommend!
