Wedding Venues and Photo Locations
Some of the larger resorts offer wedding packages and have event planners who can help you arrange a ceremony and reception. If you have your own big ideas, Ocean Isle has plenty of independent florists, caterers, bakers, decorators and restaurants that can host a memorable reception or rehearsal dinner.
The Ocean Isle Beach Chapel is a popular venue for small traditional ceremonies. It has a gazebo on the water that’s a wonderful setting for romantic wedding photos. Many couples have their beach weddings at the Sunset Inn, the Ocean Isle Inn or the Winds Resort Beach Club, which has private beach cottages.
The nearby Southport Community Building has a choice location at the junction of the Cape Fear River and the sound. It is another popular option for weddings, reunions, and large events involving food and dancing. Many venues have outdoor sundecks, beach access, indoor ballrooms and banquet halls that are perfect for any event.
The location and venue make your big day special. The photos make it unforgettable. Whether you’re planning a wedding, sending out invitations for a reunion or planning a private getaway, let me capture the wonderful moments as they happen. If you choose Ocean Isle, Bald Head or another nearby destination, I’ll be happy to follow your party there. Feel free to call me anytime to discuss your photography plans.

Things to Do
The beach is the main attraction on Ocean Isle, but there are plenty of other things to do and see. First, the town is in the heart of North Carolina’s golf country. This special area is home to 30 outstanding golf courses. Kids can score low with a round of miniature golf.
If you’re adventurous, try surfing. If you’re not so daring, you can sit on the beach and watch dolphins swim by the coast. Shopping, shelling, and deep-sea fishing are popular activities on the strand. The water along the island and in the sound is 10 degrees warmer than other areas, so it attracts all types of marine creatures, including loggerhead sea turtles that nest throughout the summer and early fall.
For the thrill-seekers visiting the area, the Shallotte Swamp Park is the place to be. This outdoor adventure course offers zip lines, a treetop course, & kayaking.
Visit the Museum of Coastal Carolina to discover the area’s history, or you can tour nearby attractions. If you want great vacation photos, the lighthouses at Price’s Creek, Oak Island, and Bald Head Island are outstanding locations. Of course, all vacations should include some relaxation. Try homemade Italian ice in town or sample award-winning vintages at the Silver Coast Winery. A quiet meal at an oceanfront restaurant is the perfect way to end a day at this wonderful beach.
Where to Stay on Ocean Isle Beach
Ocean Isle Beach is a tiny seaside community with a permanent population of under 600 residents. However, that number swells to 25,000 during the peak season, so there are plenty of places to stay, even if you’re bringing a large group. Vacation rentals are always popular, but you might prefer one of the fully equipped resorts if you’re planning a wedding or a family reunion. If you need help with renting a beach house we recommend contacting www.sloanevacations.com.
When I am not at OIB you can me photographing weddings and portraits on Sunset Beach.
