Having a wedding couldn’t be this easy, Could it?

Are you someone who wants a simple, intimate coastal wedding?  Do you want to avoid the stress and $25,000 budget of the average American wedding?  Would you rather someone else figure out all the details so you can just show up and get married?

If you answered yes, then I could be your fairy godmother!  With almost 20 years of experience planning and photographing over 200 beach weddings in the Emerald Isle area, I can guide you right to the wedding planning “finish line” in record time and with the best locations and vendors in the Emerald Isle area. I can help save you money but still give you a high-quality wedding experience.  In fact, I bet your intimate wedding will be far more special and meaningful than the often-overwhelming larger weddings. 

If you’re like me, you don’t really need a big show and might even prefer avoiding the spotlight of a typical wedding.  Instead, let it be about just the two of you.  Come to Emerald Isle and elope or have an intimate wedding with only your most special friends and family present.

So you can get three birds with one stone-

  • Save money for a home, an early retirement, or anything else that lasts longer than 6 hours!
  • Remove the stress and time-drain of planning a big wedding
  • Spend more time celebrating with the people who matter most
It really could be that easy.  Simple can still be special.  Just pick out the package below that best suits your needs, and we will get started!  I can either help you, do it for you, or give you the resources to do it on your own.

FAQs

Still have questions?

What areas do you serve?  Our expertiese is for wedding locations and vendors in the Crystal Coast area.  That includes Emerald Isle, Pine Knoll Shores, Atlantic Beach, Carteret County, Swansboro, Beaufort, and Morehead City. 

How qualified are your photographers?  The highlight of what we offer is the quality of our photographers.  You won’t just get an average photographer.  You are going to get one of the Crystal Coast’s most reputable and published wedding photographers.  Our photographers have years of wedding experience, and several are PPA Master Photographers.  If you like the pictures in our galleries and website, you’re going to love your wedding images!

What other types of events can you help plan?  As long as it’s a small event with 25 people or less, we’d be happy to help plan your event.  Many families celebrate milestone anniversaries, birthdays, and vow renewals while staying at the beach with their families.  We can help you make that special by getting you proven vendors and saving you time.

What if I want to plan this myself?   Our full packages are best for couples who want to save time and frustration by having our guidance.  If you have always dreamed of planning your own wedding, then I would recommend you get a head start by purchasing our wedding guide made for people like you!

Do you serve all types of couples?   We believe love is love, and we want everyone (color, creed, and gender-orientation) to have a beautiful, comfortable, and meaningful wedding experience.  We care about you and your story and work hard to match you with the best vendors for your personality and your wedding ideas. 

I’m interested your help!  What do I do next?  Once you decide you’d like to work together, just email or call me, and I will hold your date for one week. I’ll email you an invoice for a deposit which will save the date.  This will be credited to your final balance.  Once the deposit is paid, I will send you questionnaires to determine who is the best vendor for you.  You can relax while a local with experience does the research and coordination for you.
