Your Outer Banks Wedding Ceremony

Say “I Do” by the seashore at the Sea Ranch Resort!

What differentiates The Sea Ranch Resort from the rest of the Outer Banks ceremony venues? The Sea Ranch offers a budget-friendly, full-service wedding venue set on the beach. Our friendly staff will treat you like family and you will see why so many couples return for many of their anniversaries!

Our beachfront location provides an indoor space for the bridal party to get ready on site for the ceremony. No travel time is necessary as the wedding party will walk out of the resort directly onto the seaside ceremony location! Our on-site wedding coordinator will oversee your wedding day details and timeline while you enjoy your special day.

Don’t worry about securing wedding rentals – our Ceremony Package includes white folding ceremony chairs, a wedding arbor, sand ceremony table, and shepherd’s hooks with lanterns. In addition to these items included in your package, we provide complimentary setup and breakdown of all our ceremony items.
