There is an advantage to having a beach backdrop for your dream wedding. For one, you don't have to travel far to begin the honeymoon, as you are already in paradise! Also, there is a beautiful serenity associated with exchanging vows along a pristine shoreline with the calm waters as your witness and the tang of ocean breezes providing a relaxing atmosphere. Your guests will love the change in scenery, and you will enjoy the memories for years to come.
One bonus to getting married in the Currituck Outer Banks
is that there is no waiting period involved after obtaining a Currituck County marriage license. If you are from another county, you also have the option of obtaining your license there and getting married at the beach
. A nominal fee of sixty dollars will get you the license if you register in Currituck, which remains valid for sixty days following the issue date, and any ordained minister or officiate may perform your ceremony. The officiate need not a special license to perform the marriage in the state, either, so if you have somebody in mind who is from out of town, no extra measures are necessary.
The Corolla Chapel, Currituck's only year-round interdenominational church, has been the site of many weddings and receptions since its inception. If available, you may want to consider contacting any of the local vineyards for possible reception space. Martin Vineyards of Knotts Island has hosted many a tasting over the years, and offers beautiful grounds and views of the sound.
For an unforgettable wedding under the gentle North Carolina sun, consider the Currituck Outer Banks for your ceremony and reception. Create memories along the sandy shores and come back again, with the kids.
