We are Established Given the size of our locale and the

astonishing number of weddings that occur here, every wedding vendor that is a part of Outer Banks Wedding Association has a proven track record of professionalism and reliability. Our members are proud to be part of such a dynamic group. Each and every member of our association has been recommended by another member and approved by our Board of Directors. This allows you to have the comfort of knowing that they are a reliable and established business.

We Know the Venues

Each of our venues offer unique settings and tucked away surprises that only locals are familiar with. You can trust that our photographers know the best spots for your bridal portraits and how to capture the natural beauty of the Outer Banks—sunrise, sunset, how to position people in coastal breezes, etc. Vendors, such as caterers,

We are Prepared Weather is the one thing that no person has any control over, but that does not mean it will ruin your wedding day! Outer Banks vendors know the best sources to trust when monitoring the quick-moving weather patterns common to our area. They know that some areas are only accessible by 4-wheel drive, and they are prepared for changes in terrain and tides caused by coastal weather. Last minute changes can vary from moving your entire event inside or simply ensuring umbrellas are handy. Let them help you establish a backup plan that you’ll be sure to love.

How to Bk Local First, you can attend the annual Outer Banks Wedding Weekend and Expo held every January to meet local professionals one-on-one. Second, visit obxwa.com to browse our blog and connect with us on social media for endless inspiration. Lastly, view the member directory on page 92 to book our talented local wedding professionals.

floral designers, and DJ’s, know the do's and don’ts and can offer great ideas for bringing the details together. 7
