To Have & To Hold Outer Banks Weddings

wedding planning, coordinating & shuttle service

The wedding of your dreams comes together without much planning or effort . . . in your dreams!

It takes vision, details and thoughtful planning to turn your dreams into a reality.

Wedding Coordinating

I like to begin your planning process a year from the date of your Outer Banks wedding. I will let you know monthly what needs to be accomplished. By doing this, you are not overwhelmed on your wedding day. I make a promise to all my couples that if you complete every outlined task on the suggested schedule, you’ll have little to do those last few weeks before your wedding!

Then, you can spend that precious time when friends and family are assembled doing relaxing things – getting pedis/manis, having nice meals together – not rushing around all crazy and losing the experience to stress and worry.

There is an art to wedding coordination, and I’ve learned through experience to think of details you’ve probably not even considered at this point and can make suggestions of things to do that have worked wonderfully in other events. I can truly help you envision then create.

But a wedding coordinator does more than just help you carry out your wedding/reception/rehearsal. I’m also the one who can match you with the right Outer Banks professionals, from Outer Banks caterers to photographers. I’m the supervisor, working with these professionals to make sure everything happens just like you want it. I’m a financial planner, helping you organize your wedding within your budget. And, I’m also a mediator who can often smooth ruffled feathers and find ease through disagreements.

Day of Wedding Services

Some couples don’t need a full-on wedding planner for the months leading up to their big day. Some only need someone to be on site the day of the wedding to make sure everything runs smoothly. If that’s more along the lines for you, rest assured that I bring the same desire and experience that will help you create a memorable day.

Rehearsal Dinners

As with Day Of services, I have had couples who only needed me to coordinate their rehearsal dinners and festivities for them. My detailed knowledge of the Outer Banks and southern Virginia enables me to help you find the perfect place for your rehearsal dinner and, if need be, to work with the caterer that can meet all your expectations.

Transportation Services

The logistics surrounding getting everyone where they need to be on the days leading up to and including your wedding day can be a huge job. I’ve seen many times where the proper transportation – or lack thereof! – hugely impacted the wedding. So, I have a contract with Enterprise that allows me to arrange your transportation needs easily. From Corolla to Hatteras, my service can get everyone where they need to be on time and without you having to worry about it.
