A Dream Venue
Unforgettable venue and outstanding support from Miha!
Our Dream Venue
We had perfect weather, so after the ceremony on the pier our guests mingled on the pier for cocktail hour. If we had not had perfect weather, having the ceremony inside would have honestly been beautiful. I loved having that peace of mind through the planning process. The Pier House is historic and cozy. It is versatile and suited for a variety of wedding aesthetics without being too plain or boring. I felt that our decorations easily enhanced the already beautiful building. If I had wanted to do fewer florals to save money, it would have still be quite lovely.
The food was great. Unfortunately, my husband and I were running on adrenaline and barely ate. I had been looking forward to the cozy shrimp since our tasting...so good!! Luckily our guests were able to enjoy everything. I loved that alcohol, dinner, cocktail hour, tables, etc. are all handled by the Pier House. This really does cover 90% of what you actually NEED for a wedding, and since it's all handled in-house its seamless and makes the initial planning process so easy. You already have so much taken care of as soon as you book! We also felt that it was an incredible value, especially compared to some other venues that are not nearly as unique or all-inclusive.
We worked with Jamie. Her attentiveness and kindness does not stop once she's "made the sale." She was so sweet and responsive throughout the planning process, and she kindly put up with lots of questions from me :) I am very "type-A", and I often find that other people don't have the same attention to detail I do. However, every time I had a question I was reassured that she truly had everything covered and we were in good hands. On our actual weekend, she walked my wedding party through the rehearsal and was there for the wedding to guide us through the ceremony and the first part of the reception to make sure everything was running smoothly. I had a moment of panic when I was about to walk down the aisle and I realized my Dad had no idea how to fluff my dress (and my bridesmaids were waiting for me at the altar!). No worries, Jamie to the rescue. She was already planning on fixing my dress and veil after I stepped outside.
Thanks to the team at the Hilton Garden Inn Outer Banks Pier House (and our other incredible vendors) our day was a literal dream. I wouldn't change a thing.

The Hilton Garden is your one stop shopping for amazingly modern accommodations, service and a very unique venue, on the pier and beach for your wedding. The staff is beyond amazingly helpful and professional. It's all good at the Hilton Garden Inn!
There aren't many places you can say "I Do" and dance the night away over the ocean but you can at KHP!!! You have the beach, pier and a gorgeous indoor option inside the pier house if it's needed. The staff is wonderful and makes sure every little detail is taken care of. It's a photographers dream to shoot here!!
There are certain venues on the Outer Banks considered Diamonds. The Hilton Garden Inn is for sure one of those top 5 diamonds found on these barrier islands. The vintage Pier House is so cool and a perfect place to make a memory that will stand for all time. I've had the honor of performing many weddings along with the wonderful Hilton Garden Inn staff like Miha, and enjoyed every minute of it. First class from start to finish.
