Perfect Beach Wedding!!
We had our beach wedding at the Sea Ranch Resort on 10/31/20. I was very nervous about planning a wedding 5hrs away and making sure everything went as planned but Vivian, Liz, and their staff made me feel confident that everything would go according to plan and it did! Vivian was always easy to reach via phone or email and made the planning process so easy. The staff was very friendly and everyone was so helpful. We wanted a taco bar for our dinner and wanted to do banana pudding instead of a traditional wedding cake. There was no hesitation on either part from the chef and the taco bar exceeded our expectations. For the banana pudding they used a family recipe we gave them and it tasted just like my mom's banana pudding. They even accommodated my food allergies. The food was absolutely amazing and everyone loved it!! My family and friends are still talking about how good the food was. I felt at ease the day of the wedding because I knew I was in good hands and everything was being taken care of. We were given plenty of time to get things set up and decorated and they worked with us around our schedule. I cannot thank everyone enough at the Sea Ranch for making our wedding day so perfect! I would highly recommend the Sea Ranch Resort for your special day!Sent on 11/22/2020
Sea Ranch Resort's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words and letting us be a part of your special day! We absolutely loved the pirate and mermaid theme for a halloween wedding and your banana pudding family recipe was to die for. Come back and see us! :)

Wonderful OBX Wedding Venue
We held our destination wedding at The Sea Ranch Resort in the Outer Banks, NC. The location was ideal and all of our guests were able to reserve rooms and stay the weekend of the wedding. The resort staff was personable and accommodating every step of the way. From the very first phone call, Vivian worked tirelessly to ensure every detail met my vision and expectation. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect thanks to Vivian and her staff! The buffet for our reception was delicious. Our guests all remarked how much they enjoyed the food. I highly recommend this resort. Vivian and the entire team at The Sea Ranch Resort are the best and will will take very good care of you.Sent on 10/29/2020
Sea Ranch Resort's reply:You are awesome, BJ! It was so great working with you to assist in making your vision come to life here at the Sea Ranch Resort. We are still dreaming of the bright pink florals from your wedding day! We wish you both love and happiness for all the years.

Best day ever! Sea Ranch Resort Wedding 10/17/2020
From the minute I inquired about the Sea Ranch, Vivian made sure to get me all the information I needed to make the decision to book and im so so glad I did. I live about 6 hours away and everything was done through email and phone calls. Vivian was always so easy to reach, she made the planning process easy and made sure I was able to get the wedding day I'd always dreamed for even with the adventures of COVID. My day flowed perfectly with the Sea Ranch team and Liz also deserves a shout out for making the day perfect and taking all the worries off of me. Liz was also the one who recommended some of my wonderful outside vendors. They all worked so great together to keep me on track. I was able to enjoy the day and didn't have to worry about a thing. The food was amazing and all of my guest loved it! The servers were always readily available to get whatever my guests needed and I needed. I can't thank you all enough. I could write so much more but with that, I would def recommend this beach front for your wedding ceremony and the even room/reception area for your wedding day. It was simply perfect.Sent on 10/31/2020
Sea Ranch Resort's reply:So happy for you and Brad! It was the perfect fall wedding day with those cotton candy sunset skies we all dream of. Thank you for choosing the Sea Ranch Resort. We wish you many years of happiness and hope you will come back and see us!

Team of Sea Ranch Resort
Group Sales & Marketing Manager
My name is Liz Myers and I am the Group Sales & Marketing Manager at the Sea Ranch Resort. I reside in the little town of Manteo located just across the sound and I absolutely love working in the wedding industry of the OBX!
My career in the industry began while I was attending NC State (GO PACK!) - I spent my summers interning in the OBX with wedding coordinators and venues. Following graduation in 2013, I moved to the OBX and began my career in the wedding industry.
Sea Ranch is such a gorgeous location right on the beach!!! The walk to your reception is just up the walkway and you can stay a few steps away from there so you don't have to leave the Sea Ranch! Belinda and their staff are phenomenal and the food is amazing!!
Love working alongside Belinda! They will make sure your day goes off without a hitch! Super caring and very professional!
Sweet on the beach venue. The price is great and the staff easy to work with.
