The Wedding Website of Catherine Jean Hoben and Lukas Randall LePage
Southport, North Carolina is a very special place to both Katie and Luke. In 2021, Katie’s parents moved to North Carolina to a small coastal town that Katie’s family spent many years vacationing in to build a home and enjoy many years of retirement. This charming area of North Carolina quickly became the place that Katie and Luke wanted to tie the knot! There is so much to do here.

Katie and Luke frequently eat here, sometimes even by boat when they're out on the water! They HIGHLY recommend the Yellow Fin Tuna Sandwich! The perfect spot for lunch or a casual dinner. This place is very unique in that you order your food first, then grab a beer, and lastly, your table. They will drop the food off at your table when it's ready! If they're busy (most of the time they are) be prepared to give them a hat or sunglasses which they use to mark your table.

Wilmington

Wilmington

Wilmington, NC

Wilmington is about 30 minutes from Southport, North Carolina. Wilmington is a fun city full of adventure, good eats, and sights to see. Katie and Luke's favorite restaurants in Wilmington are Front Street Brewery, Anne Bonny's Bar and Grille and The Copper Penny. Fun fact- The Copper Penny was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives! Anne Bonny's Bar and Grille is a floating barge in the river and is a really cool experience for outdoor dining. The best ice cream can be found at Kilwins. The famous RiverWalk is perfect for an evening stroll after dinner to watch sunset. If you enjoy One Tree Hill as much as Katie and her Maid of Honor, Abigail, they highly recommend visiting the different TV set locations that are sprinkled throughout Wilmington.
