    Best wedding venue.

    We had the most perfect wedding at Kitty Hawk Pier House. The venue is absolutely gorgeous to start with. Miha, the coordinator we worked with, was amazing. She answered all of my MANY questions over the year of planning and was so helpful on our day to keep things running smoothly. We loved working with her! And the food was SO GOOD! All of our guests said how great their meal was and that they were surprised because a lot of hotel weddings food isn't great, but that they absolutely enjoyed it. Will, the food and beverage manager, was also so sweet and helpful throughout the tasting and reception. We cannot thank the staff at Kitty Hawk Pier enough! We truly had the most amazing wedding ever!

    Kitty Hawk Pier Weddings are the Best!

    We worked with Miha after touring several other vendors in the area. Kitty Hawk Pier was the obvious choice. Miha was very kind, knowledgeable, and flexible. We changed the number of guests attending several times and she was always helpful. She extended the room block after the deadline as well for some last minute add ons. The venue was beautiful and everything went well. It's a great location! Being able to be on the beach for the ceremony, the pier house has a really nice vibe to it, and being able to walk out onto the pier with a beautiful sunset and the breeze... it was perfect and we couldn't be happier!

    Hilton Garden Inn Outer Banks Kitty Hawk- Pier House's reply:

    Morgan and David! Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience during your wedding planning at the Kitty Hawk Pier House! Congratulations one more time on your marriage! We are thrilled to read this wonderful review, it is very much appreciated! Thank you! Have a great summer! Come and visit again!

    PERFECT beachfront wedding venue!

    Loved the venue and the coordinator (Miha) who came with it!! Miha was super helpful from the start - not living nearby, she gave me a FaceTime walk through of the property and venue. Even though she was a "day of" person, she was super helpful starting from the time of booking: answering my many emails/questions, helping with vendor recommendations, etc. She was lovely to work with! During the reception, the strap of my dress broke and before I could even say anything she showed up with a sewing kit and fixed me right up! She even followed up a couple days later asking if the strap held up alright. Rating for Miha: 500 out of 5 stars!!
    The venue: price was super reasonable for all that is included: linens, flatware, tables, reception chairs, wait staff, bartenders (you pay a small extra fee for them, but don't have to find bartenders from an outside vendor!), even some decor and centerpiece options. The catering is also done in-house, so one less vendor you have to outsource as well! With all this included, it made planning SO much easier than what I've seen friends go through who have to hire a separate vendor for every little thing. The ceremony was held on the beach, cocktail hour on the pier - both with gorgeous views. The outside of the Pier House left my friends wary of what the inside would look like, but the inside was beautiful as well! Has a sort of barn house feel with large windows overlooking the ocean, and when flowers/greenery were added it was BEAUTIFUL.
    Overall, just vary happy with this venue and would absolutely recommend it!

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.
