We are happy to share with you the beauty of our 2019 Outer Banks Meet + Greet. Each year, Sanderling Resort puts on a special evening where Outer Banks wedding couples come together to enjoy a night of mingling with wedding professionals and other soon- to -be married couples while tasting delicious food and wines! We put on this event for couples to begin thinking about their special day and what they want their guests to enjoy and look back on. Every year, we ask wedding professionals and event designers to join us to showcase what they do best; all things weddings! This year amazed us with the vibrant color schemes paired with beautiful floral arrangements and Sanderling’s delectable S.O.A.L. (sustainable, organic, artisanal, local) cuisine paired with palatable wines.
The night began with hors d’oeuvres and wine tastings overlooking the breathtaking views of the Currituck Sound. Couples mingled with vendors at the Pavilion, all while taking in the beautifully decorated tablescapes masterfully created by Sugar Snap Events, Bells & Whistles, Flower Girls OBX, and Holiday House Weddings. Following cocktail hour, dinner was presented by our wonderful team of chefs to include items such as our I Heart Bacon Bar, Pasta Station, and more! Throughout the experience, couples got to enjoy the musical styling of Outer Banks Wedding Entertainment at cocktail hour and Club Violin during dinner. The night concluded with a tasting of italian ice desserts by OBX Sunset Slush and heavenly cake by Great Cakes! Take a look at the magic of this event captured by the talented Mary Basnight Photography.
A huge thank you to Sugar Snap Events, Flower Girls OBX, Bells & Whistles, and Holiday House Weddings for their jaw dropping tablescapes created for this year’s event. Thank you to BBJ Linen for providing all table linens, HLR Designs for providing stationary (name tags and escort cards), Amaranth & Artifact for providing our guests with a fabulous lounge set and OBX Photobooths for the fun photobooth and props. Shout out to The Knot and Mutual Distributing for their appearance and donations to this year’s event! Without you all, our event would not be what it is! We also want to give a very special thank you to Mary Basnight Photography for capturing the event’s beauty in it’s entirety year after year! Without you, we wouldn’t be able to share the beauty of the evening to everyone!
