Beachside I Do's

Kitty Hawk Pier

Living in Hampton Roads or the OBX, there are so many amazing options for a beautiful beachside wedding. While logistics can be a bit tricky if you want a ceremony on the sand, the venues we've highlighted in this newsletter are pros at hosting amazing ceremonies and receptions that fulfill all your beach wedding dreams. From nautical decor to experience working with some of the region's best vendors, these venues have it all for those looking for a seaside event.

Just because you're planning a beach wedding, doesn't mean you HAVE to have a nautical theme. Beach vibes can mean so many different things. And with all of these venues, you have the option of having a laid back beachy theme or something glam!

Hilton Garden Inn Kitty Hawk is a staple in the OBX wedding industry. Not only is it a beautiful hotel with room for all your out of town guests, but it also has a gorgeous bar in the main lobby for your guests to enjoy a cocktail before they head to the beach for the ceremony. After a beachfront ceremony, guests can head up to the Kitty Hawk pier reception space for a beautiful reception under twinkle lights while the bridal party takes pictures on the pier.

The Oceanaire Resort Hotel is one of the few oceanfront venues to have an outdoor space for your reception. Your guests can move from the beach ceremony to an outdoor reception to dance the night away under the stars with the sound of the waves crashing in the background. They even have a fire pit for your guests to warm up if the weather turns chilly.

Located right on the beach in the OBX, Ramada Plaza Nags Head is a dreamy location for your outdoor beach wedding. With a large deck overlooking the crashing waves, you have a blank canvas to decorate as much or as little as you want for your ceremony. They have a large oceanfront ballroom for a bigger wedding, or a smaller outdoor gazebo for a more intimate, outdoor reception. Guests rave about their customer service and delicious food!
