    Can't wait for our wedding day!

    We have booked the First Colony Inn for our venue! Kanda has been soooo helpful, from giving us a tour when we first went to see it to helping us secure our date! We are so excited to plan this wedding at the First Colony Inn :)

    Our Home away from Home!

    When we were searching in the OBX for our wedding venue, we fell in love with the charm of The First Colony Inn! Our plans were to have a small, intimate wedding with family and friends. We stayed over for a night to get a feel for it, and we felt so cozy and comfortable! Hannah and Kanda are so welcoming and accommodating in so many ways. Even though out the chaos of us having to post-pone our wedding due too Hurricane Dorian! They made sure guests rooms were re-booked and everything was right.

    We had our ceremony on the Beach across the street, and our reception in a tent in the side yard, it unfortunately rained... which caused a muddy mess under the tent! This was our ONLY complaint. The property manager should defiantly do something about this, since they have events often in the yard and I was told it always floods.

    We spend the weekend at FCI and it was sunny the rest of the time. It is so enjoyable waking up to see the sunrise on the beach that is so conveniently close. My daughter and I enjoy sitting on the balcony swings to watch the sunsets too!

    We had stayed there about 3 other times prior to having our wedding and we will continue to come back every year because it feels like home away from home :)

    Beautiful Wedding Venue

    This was the perfect backdrop for our wedding – we wanted a beach ceremony with a tented lawn reception and despite the slightly chilly temps in early April, everything was gorgeous! The staff was wonderfully accommodating to our group and made sure everyone was well taken care of. Delicious hot breakfasts, large and comfortable rooms and the beautiful grounds just contributed to our amazing weekend. Hannah was so helpful throughout the planning process and keeping track of all our room reservations and guest counts. We went back and forth over email many times and Hannah’s responses were always quick and very informative. I’d highly recommend this as a wedding venue or even just for a weekend getaway!

    Beautiful location! Well done & great people!

  • Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe Wedding Caterers

    The First Colony Inn is an absolutely stunning and joyful place to work. The venue itself is well kept by their knowledgeable staff, with neatly manicured lawns, and common areas that are kept tidy and beautiful, with great attention to detail. Not only is it a wonderful place to relax and enjoy all the Outer Banks has to offer (while being walking distance to the ocean of course), but it's also a wonderful place to get married. The surrounding foliage makes the location feel secluded while still being in a desirable location. The event staff are very thorough, and make sure that all details are in place for your big day. As caterers we feel very confident that there will be no surprises when headed to the First Colony. We cannot speak high enough of them as a venue, and would recommend them to anyone looking for a place to celebrate their big day!
