2020 Expo Sponsor Spotlight | Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe
The 2020 Outer Banks Wedding Weekend and Expo is just around the corner! Event sponsors help us create an amazing two-day show and tour for you and we are grateful for their support. We were excited to recently catch up with Platinum Sponsor Basnight’s Lone Cedar Cafe. Visit Lone Cedar at their Expo booth on Saturday, March 7 and stay tuned for their plans for the always anticipated Sunday, March 8 Wedding Tour!
How long have you been involved in weddings on the Outer Banks?
Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe has been in business for 24 years.
What makes the Outer Banks unique and special to you?
For us, it’s being (literally) surrounded by natural beauty. Beautiful sound views/waterways, gorgeous beaches, marsh grass reflecting golden fall light and crisp summer blues and greens, there’s no place like the Outer Banks.
What is unique about your business? What are you known for?
Our chefs are known for using only fresh, local seafood which we clean on-site in our fish cleaning house. We are also known for our on-site herb and vegetable garden where we grow fresh herbs and vegetables used in both the restaurant and catering!
Since we make everything in house, we’re able to create personalized menus to fit your needs. And it’s all fresh - nothing boxed, bagged or frozen.
What are you most looking forward to about the 2020 Wedding Weekend? Do you have any advice for a couple booking your services?
The energy and excitement of the Wedding Weekend is something we look forward to every year! Vendors gear up all winter in preparation for the show, and that camaraderie translates to a warm, inviting atmosphere for couples. It’s an event you don’t want to miss!
You’ll want to research ahead of time, focus on vendors you want to see at both the Expo and Tour stop first, stay tuned to obxwa.com for Tour info, and map out your stops ahead of time. Our best piece of advice? Have fun!
