Our wedding was perfect. Despite "hurricane-force winds/rain" being predicted for the day, the weather held out and it was a gorgeous day. May is the perfect time to get married in the Outer Banks because it's still warm but the prices are still off-season.
We chose Island Importer because they were the only place we found who had our color for men's linens. We were apprehensive about ordering online without first seeing it in person but that didn't last long. All of our pieces were custom and it was nice to cater the outfit to each individual. We had an outfit matching the groom's exactly made for our 3 year old ring bearer. We also got the cutest flower girl dress at a steal for $35.
Using sea freeze was a last minute decision for us and I'm so glad we went for it. Their prices are reasonable and it gave us a hassle free option for reception drinks. Their selection of flavors is vast. We used pina colada and strawberry daiquiri because they were our wedding colors. I highly recommend strawberry daiquiri.
DJ Bruce was amazing. He played music that everyone loved all night without me giving him a playlist. He kept the energy up and we'll definitely use him again.
We used the large, upstairs kitchen for the after party. All your need is a radio and your closest friends and no one even has to go anywhere after your reception except for upstairs.
We got married on the beach in front of the Woodmere. The depth between the dunes and the ocean is large enough to hold a ceremony without having to worry about tide.
The Woodmere really is an all in one venue - anything wedding related was held here with no issue. Sun Realty worked with us on the number of guests allowed and made our dream wedding possible. It was nice having the Travelodge directly across the street because we didn't have to worry about drinking and driving afterward.
