OUTER BANKS WEDDINGS
As your families become one, Outer Beaches invites you to become a part of ours with guest accommodations that will make you fall in love all over again. Our experiences working with various other Outer Banks wedding parties will help us guide you down the aisle.
On Hatteras Island, your wedding is more than just one day—it’s an entire week! With 430 homes from cozy beachfront cottages and condos to sprawling luxury estates on the Pamlico Sound, Outer Beaches Realty has accommodations for everyone in your party to fall in love with.
In addition to guest accommodations, Outer Beaches offers two event venues:
Croatan Ridge, an eight bedroom, nine and a half bathroom, all-inclusive home was built with your special event in mind. Located in Buxton on the edge of the sound, this luxury home is the perfect setting for a ceremony in front of the sunset and an evening under the stars. The main house accommodates everyone in your wedding party and every item on your wish list with six king and two double bunk masters, elevator access, high-end audio and video systems, a gourmet kitchen, wrap-around decks, a private 20’ x 40’ pool area and more. The pool house on the property is ready and waiting for your event with a full caterer’s kitchen and private vendor entrance on the first floor and an entire spacious second floor for the ceremony and reception. This luxury home would make a perfect back drop for any Outer Banks wedding.
For a more intimate wedding with the sound of rolling waves as your soundtrack, ask about the Durant Station Condominiums complex in Hatteras Village. With 33 oceanfront condos ranging from one to three bedrooms, a private two-level clubhouse, and easy access to the beach, Durant Station makes your serene beach wedding a breeze. Spend the entire week with those you love by your side at the open pool area, on the quiet stretch of beach just over the boardwalk or around the grill for a relaxed cookout, then say “I do” with your toes in the sand. You can’t beat Durant Station for intimate Island weddings, elopements, vow renewals and other special affairs.
No matter where you celebrate your special day, Outer Beaches is here to make taking care of your guests a breeze. We’ll help find the perfect vacation home for everyone on your guest list so everyone can share in the love of your unforgettable wedding.
