One of the coolest venues, the Flyway Lodge, is located in Currituck County on Knotts Island, just about an hour and a half from the beaches of the Outer Banks. Knotts Island can be reached by ferry from the Currituck County mainland or you can drive in from Virginia on the north side of the town. Nestled on the soundfront there is a historic property complete with acres of lawn & forest, semi-restored horse barn and historic family home. Outer Banks locals Sara & Andrew chose this spot for their wedding because it was close to home but offered something a little bit different than the Outer Banks venues that they had frequented for celebrations before.
The property has a bridal suite onsite for the ladies to get ready. The guys got ready at the nearby campgrounds where you can rent tiny homes!
The ceremony was setup in front of the sound surrounded by shady oak trees. The venue provides chairs that can be used for ceremony and/or reception and then the couple decided to have Amaranth & Artifact add comfy oversized seating for her first row of VIP family members. The arch was also by Amaranth & Artifact! After the ceremony, the front row seating was repurposed into a lounge area for the reception.
The dinner & dancing took place in the stable area because it’s “u-shape” building creates a perfect event space with lighting strung overhead! Tables & chairs are via the Flyway Lodge. The decor was all DIY by the bride with flowers from Norfolk Wholesale Floral added to vintage glassware she had collected! It’s All Gravy from the Outer Banks did the catering while the groom’s family provided all of the dessert spread. DJing for the night was via Barryoke Entertainment out of Hatteras.
