Known for the sprawling mountains and miles of shoreline, North Carolina boasts an aesthetic backdrop for outdoor wedding ceremonies. Before planning the venue, you must first apply for a marriage license. It doesn’t matter if you’re a resident or not because the state provides equal opportunities for anyone and everyone to get hitched. Note, though, that the validity of the marriage license filed in the state is only usable within its borders. After accomplishing the legal matters, the next step is to find a romantic spot to say your I do’s. Read on for our picks of the best Airbnb wedding venues in North Carolina, USA.
