    Beyond Grateful

    We chose to have a destination wedding on Sunset Beach in NC. David and Margo were terrific. They provided us with many choices of ceremonies and allowed us to add personal touches to make it special to us. David played the wooden flute as I entered the beach and it was lovely. He officiated a ceremony that left our guests saying "It was the best wedding we have been to". Margo was spectacular with her photography. She was patient with our crazy photogenic wedding party and took more pictures than I expected her to. She was always very responsive to the emails and phone calls when I had questions for her and she kept us updated on the COVID 19 regulations and guidelines. In the end, after the uncertainty of even being able to get married due to the pandemic, it was absolutely stunning. It will be our memories for a lifetime. Thanks, Tara & Anthony

    Elopement Pregant and with a dog

    My husband and I wanted to be married on Holden Beach because it is very special to us. With the combination of covid and being 8 months pregnant, we decided to elope with the Beach People and our dog. The ceremony was beautiful and customized for us! We brought our dog and they worked with him as well as with us. They were very caring about me being pregnant and were patient with the breaks I needed. Overall we were so happy to be able to have a ceremony that was truly us and we are grateful for the beach people to make that happen.

    Beachpeople Weddings & Photograph's reply:

    Thank you for this lovely share of your experience! We appreciated you guys too. Its was lovely to be there on your special day. Blessings!
