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 honored to feature Platinum Sponsor Haven on the Banks on the blog. Make plans to visit them at their Expo booth on Saturday, March 7 and stay tuned for details on the always anticipated Sunday, March 8 Wedding Tour!
How long have you been involved with weddings on the Outer Banks?
Our story began with a bike ride shortly after we were married in 2016. We were riding our bikes around Nags Head and noticed several wedding tents set up to accommodate beach weddings. This lit the spark for the idea to have an all-in-one event venue and accommodation spaces on the same land. With experience in real estate aiding us, we secured the plot of land for Keeper’s Galley, our event space set to open in late February, and the six surrounding cottages.
What makes the Outer Banks unique and special to you?
We love the Outer Banks because there is something here for everyone. With some of the most stunning beaches on the East coast, the Outer Banks is a premier wedding and vacation destination. The food here is also incredible! Being on the water, the local seafood serves up astounding flavors of the Atlantic. Whether you want to spend your time golfing, checking out our local aquarium on Roanoke Island, fishing or just lounging on the sand, the Outer Banks is perfect for families and vacation goers alike!
What separates Haven on the Banks from other local vendors?
Being able to stay AND get married all on the same property? What could be better! Each of our six beach cottages sleeps up to 10 people and are stocked with amenities. Our 4,200-square foot venue space, Keeper’s Galley, will comfortably seat over 180 people and will be fully climate controlled. It also houses a second-floor loft with a bridal suite, a state of the art caterer’s kitchen and we even provide tables and chairs. Outdoors you'll find a large pool, hot tub, Tiki Bar, and fire pit--all just a short walk to the surf. Everything being just steps apart, it will be sure to alleviate any unwanted stress when it comes to your wedding day!
What are you most looking forward to about the 2020 Wedding Weekend?
The Wedding Weekend + Expo is such a great opportunity for prospective couple and their friends and family to learn more about wedding vendors local to the OBX and to have fun while doing it! Getting to meet them and tell them more about us is so much fun! We advise couples to explore all the vendors they may want to include on their special day.
Do you have any advice for a couple planning on getting married at your venue?
Remember to have fun! Your wedding day is one of the few days in life where it is all about you, and you get to be surrounded by your closest friends and family. At Haven on the Banks, your group can stay close together so everyone can have a great time collectively!
Please provide any other information about yourself/business that a couple MUST know?
We are here to help! Go to our website, browse our social media, give us a call or an email and we will certainly do whatever we can to give you any information you need. No matter where you choose to have your wedding, nothing is better than here on the Outer Banks.
