Our wedding was fantastic... We got married on July 5th so we could enjoy a week at the beach with our friends and family over the July 4th holiday. We were a little nervous about an outside wedding (under tents) in the middle of the summer, but we've been vacationing in the Outer Banks during the Fourth of July timeframe for the past three years and have always had great weather so took a chance that the good weather would continue. The weather wound up being perfect that day (excluding a quick storm that morning). We had a rehearsal dinner at our oceanfront beach house the night before, a casual, catered event, with fireworks to top it all off. All of our guests enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of the rehearsal dinner, and the casual vibe that we brought to the Sanderling the following day. The Wedding Mapper was a great resource to share with our guests as many of our event locations were spread out along the Outer Banks and many people were unfamiliar with the area. Additionally, all of our vendors were wonderful and if we were to do it all over again, we wouldn't change a thing.
We cannot say enough great things about having Jay as our officiant. From the moment we met him, we felt like we had known him for years, like he was part of our family.
Shirley was extremely helpful to us, offering a wide array of creative ideas for ceremony and reception decor. She was extremely friendly, positive, and upbeat throughout the entire process. We recieved many compliments on the floral decor and the credit goes entirely to her and her team.
Roy and his team are talented musicians, and able to play just about any song you request. They were very enthusiastic about their work. Most importantly for us, Roy was very accomodating and supportive of a last minute change to the ceremony music.
Echard has amazing talent and a way of putting everyone immediately at ease. He is a fantastic photographer and we could recommend him to anyone.
Jen, Belinda, and the rest of the Sanderling staff were fantastic throughout the two years that we worked with them to plan our event. The ceremony and reception were perfect, and they were a major part of what made our day so memorable.
