Sandbar Vows

Get your feet wet and embrace the luster of a barefoot bride and groom! The beaches in Cedar Island are always changing, but always offer up a perfect platform with a sandbar to pose as your wedding ceremony destination. This is the perfect option for those that love the water and want a unique experience that could not compare to any other beach wedding!  You could even arrive and depart by boat, if you have one!

Sand Dune Vows

Cedar Island beach has natural sand dunes along the shores and when you can get high enough on a dune, you find yourself surrounded by the beautiful waters of both the Pamlico Sound and Cedar Island Bay.  We protect our dunes, but we allow a climb to the top for this special occassion!


Under The Trees Vows

One of the most popular spots on our beach is to be hidden in the old oak trees that are scattered along the island.  The trees offer just enough shelter for privacy, while you can still see the beautiful waters.  The trees offer a romantic location that can be even more spectacular when the sun is rising or setting on the beach.
