This week, I married the woman of my dreams… in a fairytale setting. Thank you all so much for providing this space to others so that they can make the same memoires… The chance to have all of our family and friends together was amazing, and being able to leave here with the soulmate I am now honored to call my wife makes this home a place that will forwever be remembered. Thank you, Lane family, and cheers to many more years of success… We can’t possibly thank you enough for the perfect wedding and most amazing week. Our families were able to spend time together in this beautiful space and the memories made here will certainly never be forgotten. This place exceeded every expectation we ever had for our wedding and we cant wait to come back!

So much love & gratitufe,

Thank you so much Lane family!!! This home was a dream come true for our wedding! Everything was perfect! It was so nice to spend the week in such a beautiful home, we truly felt like we were able to escape the real world for a bit. As I am writing this the sun is coming through the windows and everything is quiet(as all of our guests have left), as I take it all in, I now do not want to leave! Hahaha Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Best Regards,

Joy, Annie and Brady Sawinski

Dear Lane Family,

Thank you so much for letting us use your home for my wedding. Everything was absolutely perfect and your house is beautiful. This was definitely my fairy tale wedding. We are so sad that we have to leave early due to Hurricane Florence and pray that this house will be ok. We hope we can come back again since we just had an awesome time. Thank you for everything!

Dear Lane Family,

We would like to thank you for opening your beautiful home to us. Our wedding day couldn't have been more perfect. Your home has breath taking views and our guests were completely blown away. This was the perfect venue and I cannot wait to be able to share pictures with you on Facebook. I would choose this place again if I had to do it all over. - Best sunset view in all OBX-

We just had our wedding at the Grande Ritz Palm this past week and I cannot say enough about how amazing it was! We knew we wanted a beach style wedding, but the option to have the wedding at the house you also spend a week vacationing in was the best choice we could have made! We were able to hold a pretty decent size wedding (110 guests attended) and did not feel crowded nor was the space too big that people were too spread out. Stephanie was amazing the whole time we were there and very hands on with the planning leading up to it with the many questions
I had! Our friends and family cannot stop talking about this venue and our wedding, many of them saying this is the best wedding they have been too! It was a memorable experience and I highly recommend this venue to anyone looking!

Love, The Faverery's

Lane Family,

Over a year ago, we discovered this amazing home when researching for a wedding venue. The ability to have family and the wedding party all under one roof was wonderful. Many of our guests are discussing booking this home for their own event. The attention to detail & the cleanliness of the home was spot on. Thank you for a week of wonderful memories.

Thank you Lane family for sharing your home with us. This place was the most beautiful wedding venue we could have asked for. We had our fairy tale wedding here and everything was perfect. We dodged Hurricane Jose perfectly and did not have any impact on the wedding. I hope this home provides as much happiness to everyone in the future, as much as it did us!

Thank you for providing your gorgeous home for our wedding week. Despite feeling the winds from Hurricane Irma, the wedding and days to follow were filled with relaxing by the pool, trips to Corolla's 4x4 beach, movies in the theater room and family dinners around the kitchen. Thank you for your attention to details and answering our many questions. We will always remember this week when our two families spent this time together. Our children had the time of their lives here in the "game room" ad in the pool. They will have many stories to tell of their adventures here.

Thank you again for everything,

August 18-25

The home is beautiful and despite it raining on our actual wedding day, we were able to move everyone inside and have a beautiful ceremony. All our guests raved about how they thought it was planned that way. The Lane's wished us well and greeted us personally, which was amazing that they cared about us! The home makes you feel like royalty and that put the icing on the cake. We truly enjoyed this memorable experience and despite a few hiccups along the way, it will be far be the best vacation yet!

Dear Lane Family,

WOW, where to begin.. our stay at the Grande Ritz Palm has been so incredible. Thank you for opening your home to us and our guests. So many told me they had one of the best times of their lives! Doesn't get better than that!

Our wedding was beautiful (even though mother nature changed plans) everything ran smoothly.

Stephanie~ you are one of a kind and such a joy to work with. Thank you <3

We lived like royalty for our wedding week (our baby learned to crawl on this floor!)

We're so grateful to have the Grande Ritz Palm be part of our "journey" with memories to last a lifetime.

All the best to you!

    This place is amazing!

    We couldn’t have imagined getting married anywhere else. All of our guests at the house for the week and at the wedding were beyond amazed by the house. Stephanie’s attentiveness was more than I could have expected. She checked in daily and had everything attended to in a timely matter. We cannot say enough good things about the Grande Ritz Palm!

    Grande Ritz Palm's reply:

    We fell in love with the Grande Ritz Palm several years before our wedding. I became obsessed with looking up Instagram pictures and videos of weddings there as we would plan our wedding over a three year engagement. We toured the place twice and were so appreciative of meeting Stephanie Lane! She was incredibly sweet and always willing to help with whatever questions we had! The house made for the absolute best wedding!! It was incredibly sweaty and hot the day of but it was everything we dreamed of. Our guests continually raved about how beautiful it was and that it was the best wedding they had been to! We ended the night jumping in the pool and some of our guests did prior to that. We are so incredibly happy we got to have the wedding of our dreams at the Grande Ritz!! Our family and friends did notice some odds and ends throughout the week that were a little aged or beat up but the actual wedding and amazing fun had outside at the pool every day and night totally outshined. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us for our perfect wedding!!!

A phenomenal home located right on the Currituck Sound with incredible sunset views! You can say, "I Do" on the beach overlooking the sound, on the top deck, by the pool or even head over to the ocean. The pool is gorgeous and perfect for taking a dip in at the end of your wedding! We love shooting at the GRP!
