There is nothing quite like having the salt breeze in your hair, and the sounds of the ocean in the background on your wedding day.  But there are different requirements along the Outer Banks, to have a ceremony on their beaches. If you are renting a house on the OBX, and you plan to host your ceremony there, be sure to ask your rental agent if there are any permits or policies you need to be aware of ahead of time. Obtaining the correct permit in advance is the responsibility of the couple getting married.
