At The Flyway Lodge, we allow you the freedom to choose your own vendors, but must be pre-approved if not on our recommended list. All vendors and service contractors must be licensed, insured professionals and proof of insurance must be provided. The Flyway Lodge is located between the Outer Banks and Virginia Beach and offers a wide variety of talented vendors. Visit our wedding vendor page for more details.
