Outer Banks Wedding Venues | Hilton Garden and Kitty Hawk Pier House

Haley and John wanted to focus in on what matters most to them on their wedding day. They chose to vow their commitment to one another surrounded by their closest friends and family seaside. The Hilton Garden Inn at Kitty Hawk on North Carolina’s Outer Banks provided just the intimate beachy vibes they were going after. They could enjoy the sunset, dance in the waves, and celebrate with loved ones without large crowds and tourists getting in the way. If you’re craving those sun-kissed wedding portraits and laid-back beach atmosphere, an OBX wedding might be the way to go! Their ceremony and reception at Kitty Hawk Pier House was nothing short of dreamy. Plus, you can find tons of gorgeous beach house rentals for large groups at a much better rate than an international destination beach wedding.

*Note: Keep in mind that some Outer Banks locations can only be reached via off-road or 4X4 vehicle (aka 4X4 beaches). For example, Corolla is one of 4X4 beach communities. If you can make the commuting logistics work for you and your guests, the location is more than worth it!
