destination weddings

That's our speciality.

in that for many, there's a family tie or memory that connects them to the Outer Banks and that's why they choose to marry here! 

For others it's a brand-new, dream destination for their crew to come together. 

Whatever brings you here, the Outer Banks offers a variety of places to get married and host a celebration of any size, from 2 guests to 200+ guests!

Here's some of our recent weddings across the island!

Outer Banks weddings are unique...

lindsey + philip

Ashley is the definition of a hard worker that you can put your trust into. She does so much behind the scenes that I probably didn't even realize, but she made our wedding day so perfect (and even made sure we enjoyed every second of it!). So if you are looking for a laid back but attentive, go-getter, dog lover, genuine, trustworthy wedding planner, Ashley is your girl.


brittany + chad

I highly recommend getting her all inclusive package even if you don't think you need it. My parents have had a home in OBX since the 80s, and I went to school for Hospitality so we thought we knew it all but Ashley is a wizard!
She kept the wedding on schedule without us feeling rushed. I felt so relaxed and was able to enjoy our wedding so much thanks to her.

lauren + albert

Ashley is seriously one of a kind. I am so grateful for her passion, knowledge, eye for detail, patience and friendship.

haley + cody

My parents, in-laws, and wedding party all commented on her professionalism, effectiveness, yet easy-going personality that made us feel comfortable!

morgan + nick

She knows so much, is so calm, and gets sh** done.

The sooner the better! You can even book planning services before you have an official date so that we can help you every step of the way, including finding your perfect wedding location. Plus, the sooner you book, the longer you have access to our planning tools!

To reserve your date, we'll need a contract as well as a deposit. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let us know!  

This one's a no brainer... so you don't have to stress! Did you know that one of the biggest regrets brides & grooms have post-wedding is not hiring a planner or day of coordinator? Having a coordinator or planner means being able to relax and enjoy your wedding day while knowing that everything is taken care of. It might sound fun to get all your girls together and do the setup together in the morning but trust me - it's not! Let someone else do the hard work and you be the guest of honor! Another great reason to hire a planner? While yes there is the added cost, typically your planner can actually save you money in other places and their experience and knowledge is priceless!

The ultimate question, right? This number can vary based on SO many factors such as guest count, location, vendors chosen, specific details and so much more. Currently, the average spend of my clients tends to begin around $45k for 100 guests. Creating a realistic budget for your individual wedding needs is the first thing we work on with full service planning and I'll always be honest & realistic with you about costs. 

The pineapple is the international symbol of hospitality - it represents friendship, welcome & hospitality and these are at the core of what Southern Hospitality Weddings & Events stands for!

Wedding Coordination & Planning packages begin at $2800.
