    Historic Corolla Park Gazebo Wedding

    Historic Corolla Park was the most amazing place to have our wedding. The little Gazebo they offer for small wedding was exactly what my wife and I were looking for! Kemberly was the Whalehead representative we worked with and she couldn’t have been better! She was quick to respond to every single question we had! I would recommend this venue to anyone looking to have a small intimate wedding in the outer banks! We cannot wait to get the pictures back!

    Romantic sights, responsive and helpful staff, wow factor

    After going to OBX for vacation every year for 20 years, Whalehead was a no brainer contender for a wedding venue once we started planning our wedding. Kemberly, the coordinator at Whalehead, made that decision even easier. She was incredibly helpful, always quick to respond, and was a pro in every meaning of the word. The day of our wedding we got to enjoy a beautiful cotton candy sunset, as if the views from the south lawn and point weren’t beautiful enough. There were also so many great places to take photographs around the property, I simply cannot wait to get my professional photographs back! Additionally, the bridal/groom’s suite were large and immaculate and decked out with huge mirrors/vanities, making it the perfect place to hideout before the ceremony. Thank you SO MUCH to all that keep Whalehead a very special place, especially to Kemberly who really made the day possible.
