I knew the moment I met Tommy and Teresa Robbins, at the Southport Wedding Expo, they were the perfect fit for Eric and I. Both are down-to-earth and the most genuine couple you will ever meet. Shoresound Productions offers a deejay, a live band or both. How cool is that? The website is user-friendly and even has an online event planner. This was so helpful when planning the timeline of events for the evening. Tommy is very experienced in the music industry and was able to accompany the needs of the singer/guitarist for the ceremony. He was very attentive to song requests and downloaded any song he did not have into his music library. Teresa was a terrific wedding coordinator and so pleasant to work with. My friends and family just loved her. She remembered the minor details of the wedding, such as, a Kleenex box placed under my mother’s chair, adding an additional chair to the aisle to accommodate a family member, and making sure the groom and groomsmen had their boutonnières. Not only did this wedding bring me a husband and joy, but new friends. I am proud to call Tommy and Teresa my friends...and the next time I am in Southport we are meeting for lunch at Provisions!

Two words...beautiful location! The deck overlooks the Cape Fear River Basin and is oh, so beautiful! (Dolphins were out there on our wedding day!) Betsy Pickard is fun to work with and is there to answer any questions you may have. One of the great things about the community building…if the weather is not cooperating on your wedding day everything can be moved indoors. This place books fast. My advice: brides, do not get discouraged...keep calling back because there may be a cancellation. Bonus: Call the Southport Historic Center to have them arrange the cannon be fired at your wedding. This was a “big hit” at our wedding.

Very pleasant and helpful staff. Janje was the name of the nice lady I worked with the most. Our wedding was over Labor Day weekend, so she extended the dates that I originally blocked to accommodate guests that were arriving earlier or staying longer for the holiday weekend. My sister and I walked in the lobby the day before the wedding with lots of welcome "sand buckets" for our guests. Janje remembered me by name and checked every bucket in to make sure the guests received them when they arrived. My grandparents stayed there and said the coffee was delicious and that the staff was very attentive to their needs.
