Beautiful April wedding

Cynthia was absolutely wonderful to work with! She made the wedding planning process easy and stress free. We were soooo happy with the venue, food, flowers, and cake! We are still getting compliments on the cake! We were also very pleased with the wedding photos and video! It was so nice not to have to worry about all these details since Cynthia handled it all!!!

Very Helpful and Professional!

We had such a wonderful wedding at The Dunes Golf and Beach in Myrtle Beach! As the mother of the bride, it was important for me to focus on my daughter and not be stressed with the details of the day! Thank you, Myrtle Beach Weddings, Etc and Catherine Powell for helping to make this a perfect day for all of us! Your “day-of” services were extremely valuable to all of us!

Exceptional service from start to finish

We couldn't have had a more perfect wedding, all thanks to Cynthia & Catherine. They were wonderful right from the start. It was a destination wedding so we relied on them for their expertise in everything! So many wonderful recommendations, and yet were very flexible by allowing us to be as little or as much involved with each aspect of the wedding as we wanted to be. The actual wedding day was everything I dreamed it would be and could not have been more perfect. The venue, flowers, officiant, food, service, wedding cake, DJ, were all PERFECT! And the recommendation of the sand ceremony was so unique! Everyone just loved it! It will be a day we will cherish forever!
