Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • With its desirable Outer Banks location and full-service amenities, this is the perfect spot for your destination beach wedding. Your guests will fall in love with the relaxed seaside vibe, and they’re certain to appreciate its easy access from both Raleigh and Norfolk airports.
  • Go for a “toes in the sand” ceremony on the beach, or choose the event lawn, with its romantic deck of weathered wood. Large receptions take place in either the Event House, with its attached open terrace, or the Pavilion, which offers sweeping ocean views. For a small celebration, we love the elegant Keeper’s Loft, perched above a historic lifesaving station.
  • An expert wedding planner will be with you every step of the way. The staff are pros at executing long-distance affairs, and they’ll help you craft a bespoke package that fits just right, whether you’re hoping for an intimate elopement or an epic bash.
