Setting the stage for an amorous getaway, where wild horses roam freely and southern charm meets rich maritime history, The Crystal Coast is nestled along North Carolina’s Central coastline.
85 miles of gleaming Atlantic beaches only begin to tell the story of North Carolina’s Crystal Coast. The natural beauty of the southern outer banks lends itself to awe-inspiring weddings. The Crystal Coast will impress the most discerning of brides with attentive and gracious southern service, award winning chefs, and an array of distinctive venues to accommodate weddings of all sizes.
Endless venue options, ranging from quaint seaside cottages, to beachfront mansions, referred to locally as “sandcastles,” provide the perfect backdrop for a sophisticated seaside soirée — and a number of professional vacation rental companies come equipped with talented wedding and special events teams to cater to your every need.
For the rustic-loving bride, Butterfly Kisses Pavilion provides just the right touch of farmhouse chic, whereas stunningly historic churches cater to the taste of a quintessential southern bride. Originally constructed in 1855, the perfectly preserved Octagon House stands sentinel among 60 acres of marshland. Other distinctive venues include the full-service, Celebration Cottage, overlooking the serene waters of Atlantic Beach; The Watson House, where lush gardens and a picturesque estate await; and the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort, where boardwalks are adorned with artisanal hand-carved wooden boats, gently bobbing along the glassy waters of Taylor’s Creek.
From waters of crystalline purity bordering sandy, sparkling beaches, a towering lighthouse and a heard of wild Mustang horses, to the charming setting of famous Nicholas Sparks’ romance novels “A Walk to Remember” and “The Choice” — The Crystal Coast is an exceptional destination to celebrate a fairytale romance.
