Poplar Grove Plantation is one of North Carolinas’ oldest peanut plantations and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Poplar Grove is gaining popularity among Wilmington, NC Wedding Venues, especially for the outdoor wedding experience. Poplar Grove offers a great backdrop for wedding photography and outdoor weddings. From a photographers perceptive, I find Poplar Grove a quaint and rustic setting with textures that make for great wedding photography.
There is a massive oak tree in the middle of the property that makes for an incredible backdrop. A really unique feature of Poplar Grove for weddings is that they place rustic farm doors out on the lawn that stand alone. This makes for a really cool entrance for the bride. The doors can be closed so the bride can be introduced in a somewhat traditional fashion, emulating the rear doors opening from the back of a church or chapel. Pretty cool for an outdoor wedding feature to bring an extension of the bride walking into the wedding.
I find all the colors and textures I am looking for when creating an awesome outdoor wedding portfolio. Some other key elements that make for awesome wedding photography is the barns and older wood structures. In addition to these there is the main plantation house. It has a classic look and feel and also makes for a classic southern wedding backdrop.
Poplar Grove Plantation also makes a great place for bridal portraits and engagement sessions. The property is vast and depending on the season, there will be a palette of natural colors and vegetation to enhance the photography portfolio. Attached to the property is a nature trail where I have done some individual sessions. There is a walking bridge over a small lake that creates a very beautiful natural setting for photographs. Poplar Grove is a great place if you are looking for an outdoor wedding venue with a historical feel and rustic notes.
