    Coastal Events is wonderful! We couldn't ask for a better planner. Planning a destination wedding has the potential to be stressful, but Karen helped us so much and took great care of everything! She helped me keep up to date with all the vendors, created a realistic timeline, and had a primary and secondary plan for every aspect. Karen was familiar with all the OBX vendors and all of them turned out to be great! We love her and would highly recommend her for any event!
