The 2019 Outer Banks Wedding Weekend and Expo will be here soon! Leading up to the event, we are proud to feature our sponsors to thank them for their support. Their sponsorships help us create an amazing two-day event for you and your wedding planning support crew. As you prep to dive into hiring your dream team of vendors, get to know more about a 2019 Platinum sponsor, Basnight's Lone Cedar Catering. You can find them at Booth #6, and two tour stop locations during the weekend.
How long have you been involved in weddings on the Outer Banks?
Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe has been in business for 23 years.
What makes the Outer Banks unique and special to you?
The diverse beauty and nature. We have uninterrupted sky lines unlike our neighbors to the North (VA Beach), pristine beaches, beautiful sound views/waterways, 4x4 beaches, an array of fabulous venues that all have different unique features, lovely golf courses, and of course, access to scrumptious local seafood.
What is unique about your business? What are you known for?
We are known for using only fresh, local seafood (which we clean on-site in our fish cleaning house), and also, our flexibility in creating personalized menus. Since we make everything in house, we are able to create any menu to fit your needs. No boxed, bagged or frozen here.
We are also know for our on-site herb and vegetable garden where we grow fresh herbs and vegetables used in both the restaurant and catering!
What are you most looking forward to about the 2019 Wedding Weekend?
We look forward to meeting with all the happy couples and telling them about what we can do for them!
Our advice would be to do your research ahead of time, focus on vendors that you want to see at both the expo and tour stop first, book soon if you have not already since calendars tend to fill up expo weekend, brings labeled stickers for personal info/drawings, and of course, relax and enjoy!
Are you participating at or hosting any of the Saturday Wedding Tour stops?
Yes! At Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe! Please join us for music, drinks and scrumptious light hors d'oeuvre of course! We will also be at Pine Island Lodge that evening with food samples for couples to try!
Please provide any other information about yourself/business that a couple MUST know!
