There is no better destination to commemorate your wedding than Ocracoke Island.
Weddings on the island have gained popularity because of its unique charm and intimacy. Many of the couples who wed on Ocracoke have been visiting the village for years. The attraction begins with the scenic drives to the ferry terminal, through Dare County, Carteret County, and mainland Hyde County. The romantic remoteness and accessibility only by ferry, plane, or personal watercraft offer seclusion from the rest of the world. The heart-rate increases once loading onto the ferry – smelling the salty fresh air, watching the birds soar behind you, and knowing your happy place awaits once you complete the voyage.
When you arrive at the Ocracoke port, people are strolling through the village on golf carts, you hear families laughing and singing, and you feel like you can finally unwind and relax. Exploring the village by bike, golf cart, horse or foot offer feelings of peace and tranquility. Very few other destinations offer the capability of traveling without a vehicle. With no franchise establishments, guests dine at world-class restaurants where the seafood on the table comes straight from the water. You have made it to Ocracoke and are on island time. These popular feelings ring true of most visitors (and locals of course) and are part of the reason couples have chosen to bring their families and friends to Ocracoke Island and say “I Do” in a place truly unlike any other.
