Katie and Shane 's Wedding


I would choose to get married at the Aquarium all over again! Being a local from the Outer Banks, I didn't want a traditional on the beach wedding and the Aquarium was the perfect alternative. The weather was beautiful even after a week from a very scary and damaging hurricane! Do make sure your photographer takes a look at the space of the reception because the lighting isn't all that flattering in most of the rooms due to the tank lights. If you have the opportunity to attend the OBWA Expo I would highly recommend it.

Although the food was tremendously excellent; the service before and after the wedding was horrible! Phone calls and emails were never returned or returned a month later. And tracking down the left over alcohol that was promised to me was never found and returned. I will continue to eat at the restaurant but as a catering business I was less than impressed!

Scott was AMAZING! He had an almost unlimited number of song he could play and was even willing to learn a few new ones just for us!! If you're looking for a great musician with a great personality and tons of experience Scott is your number one guy. He also offered us an option of gathering a few other people to his mix if we so wanted; but Scott can play/sing so well I wanted just him in the background!!

There are no words besides JULIE & LAUREN WERE SIMPLY AMAZING!! Easy going, but still on top of their job and handling all my crazy family. I love our pictures and will have them do plenty of other sessions in the future!!

Bruce was AWESOME! We gave him a small list of must plays for first dance etc. and he took those songs and gauged our genre of music we wanted and everyone said it was a blast. We danced and toasted and had a ball.

Brenda and Gail are my favorites!! Gail was also my day-of-coordinator and I'm not sure the wedding would have even started if she wasn't there. My flowers were amazing and they took my vision of "polka dots" fun, whimsy but still elegant and romantic and created a masterpiece!! I can't thank them enough for dealing with my crazy antics before the wedding. I would highly recommend their services for any occasion where you need beautiful arrangements!

Bombshell's was SPECTACULAR! Everyone of my girls looked amazing, hair and make-up! I'm so glad I was able to schedule a trial run for my hair, as I have a ton of it, but my wedding day came and everything ran smoothly and I felt simply beautiful all nigth!!
