To Have & To Hold Outer Banks Weddings

wedding planning, coordinating & shuttle service

"The entire wedding process was so stressful for me, until Brenda stepped in. I was halfway finished with my planning when I decided I couldn't take it anymore. Brenda picked up the pieces and got me through the rest of my planning and down the aisle without a hitch. She was the reason my wedding day was so wonderful. I could never have done it with out your help She is amazing! My wedding week was so much fun! I would do it all over again 100 times!!"

"I don't think I have enough room in this comments box to say all the amazing things I want to say about Brenda and her team!! Simply put, I could not have planned my wedding without her. It wouldn't have gone nearly as smoothly as it did. Dare I say, the wedding planning process was actually FUN for me thanks to Brenda!! I felt very little stress along the way because even as our day-of coordinator, she helped me plan out all the tiniest details and make sure everything was on track for our big day. There was really no stone left unturned. When it came time for our rehearsal and our wedding day, she was firm with everyone about what needed to happen and managed to keep everyone in line, while still being the sweetest, kindest woman that everyone wanted to talk to at the reception! I did 90% of our reception decor DIY, and Brenda and her team set it up so beautifully that I literally cried the second I saw everything. Overall, I could not have asked for a better day-of coordinator. I still say to this day that hiring Brenda and her team was the best money that we spent on our wedding. I will miss my monthly phone calls with her dearly now that our wedding is over!!"

"Words can not adequately express how fabulous Brenda is as a person and as a wedding planner. We live in PA and our daughter's wedding was at the Pine Island Lodge in the OBX. The Lodge was a wonderful place to hold the wedding, but we could not have done it without Brenda! Throughout the 12 months of planning, Brenda was organized, insightful, flexible, and always available via phone or email. As for the day of the wedding; perfect! Brenda's positive relationships with the vendors, organized schedule of events, and calm demeanor, allowed families and guests to enjoy each moment of the special day. As the mother of the bride, I will never be able to thank Brenda enough for helping create the wedding of our daughter's dreams. Brenda is absolutely fantastic!"

"I have always dreamed of a beach wedding. Living hours from the beach, I did not think it was possible until I met Brenda! She planned my entire long distance wedding over the internet, phone, and e-mail. She did a wonderful job and when my wedding day came, I got to enjoy the wedding I had been dreaming of since I was a little girl. Since Brenda lives on the Outer Banks, she was able to contact all the vendors for me and go to appointments. I got my 'moment,' thanks to Brenda!!"

"What can we say?!? David and I are so grateful to you and your team. You truly created the rehearsal party of our dreams. We cannot thank you enough. Planning this North Carolina event from Tampa proved to be a challenge, but with your patience and great attitude, we were able to prevail.

With little knowledge of the area, we found ourselves uncharacteristically ill equipped to plan. There were so many details that we simply could not have known. Your remarkable industry knowledge and attention to detail filled that void. I am confident that it was your expertise that allowed us to come in on time and under budget. The recommendations provided for event support were remarkable. Each vendor was professional, easy to work with, and went above and beyond to exceed our expectations. Inevitable obstacles were quickly identified and promptly resolved. The site looked spectacular, the food was amazing, and our guests were safely transported. David and I continue to receive compliments, but the credit belongs to you.

The 'day of' service was priceless. With you there, David and I were free to relax and enjoy the evening. We were confident that under your watchful eye, all was well."
