    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!

    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.

    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!
