Our Wedding

Overall our wedding was everything we wanted! I recommend all my vendors except the hair salon .
All of our friends and family enjoyed the "destination" wedding and are still talking about it!

I loved every aspect of our wedding and how it did not break the bank!

Sh ei s FABULOUS to work with, and her cakes not only taste amazing but have the look to go with it. Her sugar work is the highest quality i have seen, the flowers look so real!
Very reasonably priced. We were only getting a cake to please my mom but when we tasted her cake we are now excited about having a cake. (I also usually hate icing,I'm the one who scrapes it off - they have a champaign icing that is so yummy) Worth every penny spent!

they provided a family fun, friendly atmosphere and was worth the "risk" we took for our wedding! All of our guests are still talking about how much fun it was 6 months later!

we had no idea there was a platform there until we got there and it worked perfect with having the tide coming in and out!

I don't have 5 stars because we haven't had the wedding yet, but they have been GREAT to work with, low key and have the southern attitude that goes with it. They treat you like family and have so many great options. I am really looking forward to the wedding!

Wedding Day Beauty

DO NOT go here - I left upset as my hair looked nothing like my trail run and was asked for gratuity after I had already paid.
I had also requested that there be fruit and cheese served as part of our services and paid for it in advance, the morning of she was running late, and ended up serving us bacon and french toast! there was several issues with this - as my mom is gluten intolerant so she could not eat this and who wants to be bloated on their wedding day!
She also agreed to have another stylist there the day of and instead had a friend doing the girls hair (her friend was not a certified stylist - and burnt several of the girls with a curling iron) She fired the other stylist 2 days before our wedding. She (only one working) also allowed a client to come into the salon when I had reserved the entire salon for just for me and my girls. Taking time away from us, making us be rushed in the end.

This was the WORST experience ever!!!!
