First Annual Outer Banks LGBT Wedding Expo this Sunday

Home / Local Events / First Annual Outer Banks LGBT Wedding Expo this Sunday

Fall is here, and love is in the air!  While the summer season winds down, wedding season on the Outer Banks is shifting into high gear.

We are delighted to announce that Sea Ranch Resort is a proud supporter and vendor at the First Annual Outer Banks LGBT Wedding Expo this Sunday, Sept. 20 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Kitty Hawk.

The festivities start with a brunch  at 11:00 a.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn Pier House. Scheduled performers and emcees are “Dee Lighted Tobehere” (Roxy Moorecox), Sterling Maxwell and Jamie Monroe. Your ticket purchase includes a delicious buffet and admission to the Wedding Expo.

The Wedding Expo will open at 1 p.m. with a champagne toast and features more than 30 vendors who are proud supporters of marriage equality and welcome the opportunity to help same-sex couples celebrate their union in style.

The first ever Outer Banks gay wedding expo is in conjunction with Outer Banks Pridefest Weekend 2015.

According to a recent survey, 96% of same sex couples prefer to think of their big day as a marriage just like any other, as opposed to a commitment ceremony or civil union. More than half of the couples polled agreed that their guests could use some pointers for LGBTQ wedding etiquette; if you don’t know, just ask! Nearly all of the couples polled indicated the need for their wedding vendors to communicate their support for marriage equality, and are mindful of reviews given to vendors by couples with first-hand experience in dealing with them.

All of the couples and their many supporters are thrilled that the issue of marriage equality has reached the Supreme Court and is gaining more public support each day!

The Sea Ranch Resort will be one of three featured venues at the expo that proudly supports same-sex marriage. This newly renovated oceanfront hotel in Kill Devil Hills is the perfect spot for couples to enjoy a gorgeous beach wedding followed by a seamless transition to their indoor event room for reception festivities. If you can’t make the expo but would like more information on booking a wedding and or reception at The Sea Ranch Resort, contact Belinda Anderson, Director of Sales and Catering, at (252) 441-7126 Ext. 168 or email  Our online reviews are exceptionally positive, bringing reassurance and peace of mind when making arrangements for the big day!

We hope you’ll join us for the LGBT Wedding Expo for the opportunity to forge relationships with these talented folks at the Hilton Garden Inn this Sunday as part of the Outer Banks Pridefest Weekend!
