How long have you been involved in weddings on the Outer Banks?
Whalehead’s property has been a beautiful wedding destination venue location for 20 years. One of which was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, 2000 Winter Edition.
What makes the Outer Banks unique and special to you?
The tranquility that is felt when sitting on our beautiful beaches watching an amazing sunrise or capturing that perfect sunset picture with the infamous footbridge over the Currituck Sound in Historic Corolla Park.
What are you most looking forward to about the upcoming 2020 Wedding Weekend + Expo?
Meeting the couples and sharing in their excitement of what the Outer Banks has to offer for their special day. It’s exciting for me to introduce the Whalehead property to couples that have never heard of it before. I’m super excited that Whalehead is a Tour Stop on Sunday, giving couples the opportunity to experience all its grand beauty for themselves.
Do you have any advice for a couple booking your services?
BREATHE and ENJOY the ride! Building an event from the ground up can seem overwhelming, but I’m here to help every step of the way.
What trends are you most excited to see in the upcoming 2020 Weddings?
2020 trends, I would have to say the tending hues, they will all be stunning at Whalehead. The Outer Banks event designers & coordinators are so incredibly talented; I am always amazed at the fabulous jobs they do for our couples.
What makes Whalehead in Historic Corolla different from other Venues on the Outer Banks?
Whalehead is a beautifully restored 1920s-era Art Nouveau-style mansion listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is also known for the breathtaking backdrops that include 80-year-old Live Oak trees, a unique boathouse, one of a kind footbridge, views of the historic Currituck Beach Lighthouse, and especially the gorgeous sunsets.
