Get Married at Currituck Beach Lighthouse
We are happy to accommodate wedding ceremonies for up to 150 guests. Because of staff capacity and the size of our historic site, we are unable to host receptions. Your wedding reservation includes admission to the lighthouse property for you and your guests. A fee of $500 is required in order to book a wedding ceremony on-site.
Curious if the grounds are available for your day?
Things to Keep in Mind
- We ask that the ceremony take place between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.; the lighthouse and grounds will remain open to the public.
- Ceremonies must take place in the southwest corner of the site.
- All equipment logistics (this includes set-up and take-down of chairs, decor, etc.) should take place on the day of the wedding.
- Arrangement for chairs, tables, tents, and decorations is the responsibility of the Lessee.
- Birdseed and flower petals may be used, however tossing rice, confetti, or other materials is prohibited.
- Portable music or small ensembles are allowed, as outlined within the terms of the Wedding Ceremony Agreement.
- During the ceremony, at least one member of the Lighthouse staff will be present on-site.
- Motorized vehicles are prohibited within the fenced compound.
- Regular admissions and suggested donations apply to guests who wish to climb the lighthouse.
- In the case of inclement weather that prohibits the ceremony from taking place on-site, many couples choose to use their reception site as a backup location.
