  • White Doe Inn Weddings

    Weddings are poetry in motion and it is our desire at The White Doe Inn to help you write the verses that will become your poem on the day of your wedding. If you dream of a romantic setting where time stands still and graciousness is a way of life, The White Doe Inn is the perfect venue for your wedding. In Victorian times, weddings were Grande Affaires with romance, love, and tradition being an integral part of the celebration. Today's couples often choose smaller and more intimate affairs. Whatever your dream, creating an elegant and stylish event with personal details and limitless creativity is our goal. Welcome to The White Doe Inn where every wedding we create is as unique as you are!

    As professional wedding planners with a passion for making dreams come true, we have helped hundreds of couples to create the perfect wedding. We take great pride in our professionalism and our dedication to personal service. Years of experience and our extensive knowledge of the area has enabled us to create one of the most romantic locations on the island and to develop a working knowledge of the best resources available.

    You may choose to be married at The White Doe Inn, an elegant and luxurious Victorian Inn, nearby overlooking Shallowbag Bay in the Manteo Waterfront Gazebo, or one of the beautiful beaches along the Outer Banks. The White Doe Inn would then be available for a lovely garden reception where friends and family can experience and share the true southern spirit of this area.

    The splendid views, the superb food, and the goodness of people, as they strive to make this a special time for the newly weds and their guests, exceed all expectations. Many couples recognize that they do not have the knowledge, experience or creativity it requires to plan a wedding. They also realize they do not have the many hours it takes to visit the various venue sites and meet the numerous vendors to plan all the details.

    The White Doe Inn has developed six All-Inclusive Packages especially for your consideration. We will also gladly help you tailor a package of your own personal preferences.

    An important part of these packages is The White Doe Inn Wedding Coordinator. Not only does she serve as your planner, but also as your advisor, your financial planner - and perhaps most importantly - your advocate. The Coordinator will take the pressure off of you as the big day approaches. Her attention will be focused completely on your wedding day. We invite you to explore the many unique ideas we offer for planning the wedding of your dreams.
