Add to this Harkers Island, Beaufort, Morehead City, Cape Lookout, Shackleford Banks, Atlantic Beach, Pine Knoll Shores, Salter Path, Indian Beach, Bogue Banks, Swansboro, and Emerald Isle, and you have the makings of the perfect destination wedding location – destination Crystal Coast. Our 85-mile stretch of coastline extends from Cape Lookout National Seashore westward to the New River and includes over 56 miles of protected beaches. It also includes dozens of amazing engagement and wedding locations.

Standing on the backside of Carrot Island or Shackleford Banks with the wild horses behind you and the Atlantic Ocean directly in front of you is like being in the middle of the Caribbean without leaving the mainland. Whether Front Street in historic Beaufort, the sound views of Pine Knoll Shores, the beaches of Emerald Isle, or the quaint streets of Swansboro, the Crystal Coast has something for everyone.
