    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!

Your tidy, respectful and FUN group was so great to have on the grounds to kick off our 2019 wedding season! Best wishes for a happy life as Mr & Mrs Hirt

    The incredible Staff

    An addition from my review below - First Colony Inn staff was one of the best parts of our wedding! Each and every person made our guests feel welcomed and right at home. Hannah was incredible! I could go on for hours, but she is the nicest person and very helpful with any questions I had. Her positive and easy-going attitude will make you feel calm and stress-free throughout the entire wedding process. Kanda, Joe and all of the ladies (some names are escaping me!) were also amazing! Our wedding guests that stayed at the Inn raved about the staff - they were so helpful, personable and kind. My Parents went on about Joe and the young lady who was there Sunday - Tuesday for weeks after the wedding! The location and beauty of FCI would certainly bring us back every year, but the staff sealed the deal. There is something to be said about people who treat you like friends/family during your stay!

    You are too kind, thank you so much! Our small staff is like a little family that loves the inn as much as our guests and we're so glad it shows.

    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!
