The Side Porch of the Whalehead is shaded by old live oaks and would add a beautiful space to your ceremony location as it could provide added shaded seating for your wedding party or special guests.  This space could also be used as a "first look" area, a refreshment area or whatever you imagine.

To book this location for your wedding, please contact the Promotions & Event Coordinator at Whalehead. You can also call 252-453-9040 for immediate assistance.
