Hello! I am planning our ceremony on the beach while we are on vacation this summer. Is it ok for us to gather on the sand in front of our rented beach house? I am asking because I am unfamiliar with the laws, I live in Ohio! Any info would be wonderful! THANKS!

Hi there. It is illegal to take excessive amounts of sand from the beach, but if you take small amounts, a little at a time, you'll be fine.

I misread your message, thinking you meant gather sand.

You CAN gather on the sand for your ceremony on the beach in Ocean Isle Beach. I am a coordinator specializing beach weddings held right on the sand. View my website photo gallery for photos of other beach weddings.

What part of Ohio are you from? I am from Ohio and we are getting married in front of a beach house on April 4th of this year. It is legal to get married on the beach in Ocean Isle. It is very nice there!

Hey! We are from Clyde-which is about 30 mins from Toledo. From what I have researched, yes it's ok to get married on the beach. I love the area! Our family has vacationed there since I was very young so I can't wait to get there!
