Overall we had a lovely wedding in Swansboro. I would definitely recommend the White Oak River Bistro and I loved the size of my wedding at 70 people. We had a beautiful day and made lots of wonderful memories.
Not a great job considering the money we paid. They did not listen to all the requests we had and they were not very organized. You could hardly hear the music during dinner so that was a waste of money and they gave the mic to the best man to give his speech while my husband was in teh parking lot saying goodbye to a groomsman who had to leave early. Not impressed.
Great photographer, listened to all our requests and never said he couldn't something. I made last minute arrangements for him to come to the beach house where my bridesmaids and I were getting ready to take pics there ahead of the ceremony and he had no problem with it. He got so many great shots that we didn't even realize he took. He was truly a fly on the wall and was not intrusive during the ceremony or event. He did a wonderful job and we got the photos in no time.
Great venue. The staff was wonderful and the food was great. The only issue I heard about afterward is apparently they ran out of cordon bleu and I paid for 75 people to eat and we had less than that so they should not have been running out of food. My sister had to demand they make more because they just said there was none left and weren't going to do anything about it I guess. The rest of the details were great and the place was a great spot to have a wedding. Denise the event coordinator was very helpful as well.
