Couples planning an Outer Banks destination wedding should consider the Whalehead Club in Corolla, NC as a picturesque option. The Whalehead Club was built in the early 1920s by Edward and Marie Louise Knight of Philadelphia. The venue served as both a family vacation estate and a hunt club, and ultimately became a summer retreat for dignitaries and friends. Today, the Whalehead Club is owned by Currituck County and provides tours, excursions and museum exhibits for Outer Banks visitors.
Dramatic sunsets over the shimmering Whale Head Bay and the distinctive residence with lush, manicured grounds, combine to create the perfect backdrop for a memorable wedding event. “Whalehead weddings are among some of the most elegant and beautiful I’ve ever seen,” says Elaine Breiholz, Property Manager at Carolina Designs Realty.
Whalehead Club managers assist with preparations and are closely connected to local event planners familiar with this venue and the nuances involved in planning coastal weddings. Events range in size from grand evening weddings on Whalehead Club grounds to more intimate services on the tranquil soundfront pier. Each wedding can be specifically tailored to meet personal requirements.
