A Dream Come True
I have always wanted a beach wedding and when my now-husband recommended the Outer Banks, I found the Sanderling Resort. We visited the resort and felt so welcomed by the wedding team. We went with the Event House elopement package, which included a beer canoe and s'mores by the firepit! Over the course of planning, our original Sanderling wedding planner left and Kristen Allen took over. Kristen was able to take over seamlessly and made sure that we had everything we wanted for the big day. We never had to worry because she made sure every detail was perfect! Even when we had to make some last minute changes to the reception due to the unusual amount of bugs outside, she kept us informed and relaxed for our special day. Surprisingly, the bugs stayed away that night and we could enjoy the outdoors and firepit! I couldn't imagine having our wedding anywhere else or with any other planner!Sent on 10/17/2019
Sanderling Resort's reply:It was our honor to host your special day! We wish you happiness and love for all the years and hope you are able to return to the Sanderling on an anniversary.

Sanderling Resort Wedding Venue Recommendation
The Sanderling Resort was the BEST and dreamiest place to get married! We absolutely loved the staff and especially loved working with Debbie Norris as our wedding coordinator!! Debbie was always easy to reach, confident and organized in our planning, and focused on bringing the vision we had for our wedding day come to life. We could tell that Debbie and the Sanderling Resort have much experience serving couples and their our experience with them could not have been better. We highly recommend Sanderling Resort for your East Coast wedding!Sent on 08/26/2019

Kristen you were an absolutely amazing wedding planner! You were professional, poised and gracious at all times. Thank you so much for being there for me from start to finish, being so patient with me, and putting up with my worries phone calls, questions and last-minute changes. Our wedding was beautiful and perfect. It was the day we had always dreamed of. The flowers, decorations, the cake, and the reception were stunningly gorgeous. Thanks to you, Kris and I were able to fully enjoy our wedding day without a worry in the world! Please do not hesitate to use us as a reference for other brides and grooms looking for a wonderful wedding planner for their special day.
The Sanderling has it all for the perfect upscale beach wedding. My band has played at several events there and we are always amazed at how perfect the set up is. If you're looking to put your feet on the sand during your ceremony and be only footsteps away from a very comfortable, accommodating setting to entertain your guests, this is one of the best options for you on the Outer Banks. Also, not to mention, their wedding planners on staff are wonderful to work with. 5-stars!
The Sanderling.....what a perfect location for your special event! A beautiful property capturing the natural beauty of the Outer Banks, a team of dedicated and professional individuals who will work with you to bring all of the details together, and chefs that create delicious and eye catching delights that will leave you and your guests wanting more. We love them.
We love to work with Wendy and Jessica both are amazing to work with and are super professional. The Sanderling Resort and Spa are the dream event location on the OBX!!!
