    Salt Harbor is the BEST!

    We don't have enough good things to say about this team. For everything from the design of the space, the florals, working with our vendors with us, and the day of execution, our vision completely came to life. We have not stopped getting compliments about our day, and our guests saying it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to. And Meaghan, our day-of director, was THE BEST. She kept us on schedule, the day flowing, and made sure we had everything we needed - and it was noticed by all of the guests and other vendors. I would work with this team over and over again if I could - we wouldn't change a thing!

    Salt Harbor is hands down the best Wedding Planners

    Salt harbor created a magnificent stunning wedding at Wrightsville Manor for my daughter and son-in-law in the most enjoyable stress-free professionally responsive way during a global pandemic. They made all my daughter's Pinterest, magazine, and original ideas come together perfectly and everything ran so smoothly on her big day.
    I really am at a loss of words to express how amazed, thrilled, and awestruck the couple and everyone was with all their creations and how it all came together so flawlessly. The gorgeous flowers, tables, lounge furniture, tent, lights, ceremony space and flowers, the cocktail hour, champagne wall, the neon light, "It was Always you", etc. were all exactly as the bride and groom envisioned them to be because the Salt Harbor team really listened and considered the couple's individual taste and used their expertise to make all the various wedding ideas come to fruition in a cohesive presentation.

    The entire planning process with Salt Harbor, from start to finish, was great too. They helped us navigate all the planning through a global pandemic and we were still able to enjoy the process and stay excited about our choices and watching everything come together. That was especially amazing considering the circumstances and the uncharted territory we all faced with planning a wedding within ever changing pandemic advisories. I cannot imagine what all the wedding vendors encountered and endured over the previous 18 months, but Salt Harbor listened, learned, and used their knowledge to create my daughter's dream wedding. When COVId came along and I had no idea what to do, or how to fix "it", I was especially glad we had Salt Harbor on our team. They gave very sound advice that enabled us to navigate through all the decisions and changes and helped us manage all the necessary adjustments to our pre-pandemic contracts. Thanks to science, guests willing to be vaccinated, Salt Harbor and Wrightsville Manor's coordination and pandemic policies, we were able to focus on making safe wise decisions for the wedding weekend and our guests.

    Salt Harbor was always quick to respond to our questions, offered many options in their replies to meet our needs and budget, and then worked to make our choices happen. The bride and groom absolutely loved everything and were awestruck when they had their first look at the venue before any guest arrived; One of many moments and memories they will always cherish from their wedding day.

    I also cannot say enough about Jordan, our "day of" coordinator from Salt Harbor. My goodness she was spot on over every little need we had during the rehearsal and wedding, before we even had them and smoothed out every single wrinkle with ease and confidence and without drama. I do not even know how many times she asked me if I needed anything, but it was a lot. The entire event ran so smoothly and transitioned from one point to another perfectly! From the rehearsal night to pre-wedding ceremony pictures, to the actual ceremony and getting all the guests, bridal party, a 2 year old ring bearer and puppy in place, to the cocktail hour, first dances, meal, speeches, cake cutting, reception non-stop party, couple send off and guest's safe transportation home, (be aware uber's are limited in Wrightsville currently and Jordan helped with that unexpected snafu as well) Everything just flowed like a well written script under her direction. She even sewed a button on the groom's Tux in less than 2 minutes.
    For the package we chose, Salt Harbor coordinated everything with the vendors as well, which was so worth it, especially with the pandemic. That is such a great part of what they offer their clients and one I highly recommend. We were so relaxed coming into wedding week knowing we literally did not have to do anything. People would ask me questions about how we did things and I would have to reply, I do not know, the planners took care of all that. Our role in this wedding plan was, point and click, and Salt Harbor made it happen.

    Salt Harbor's teamwork definitely made this wedding dream work, despite a pandemic. My daughter telling me the day after her wedding day, “ Mom, thank you so much, that was the best day of my life”, with tears running down her face, is one of those once in a lifetime Aaaaah moments we strive for as parents and a memory I will always cherish. Thank you Salt Harbor for being a very big part of that moment.

    I worked with Salt Harbor Designs for several months planning a destination wedding. I attended a friend’s wedding and loved Jennifer’s attention to detail and how effortlessly the events flowed. The local vendors were excited to collaborate with Salt Harbor Designs and everyone involved created an extraordinary celebration. Jennifer is willing to think outside of the box and create unique touches for a highly personal and exceptional experience. She created a one of a kind wedding invitation that created excitement for the upcoming festivities. She has an amazing ability to deliver what exists only in your imagination! If you can imagine it, Jennifer will deliver! She is open to all possibilities and can make your dream a reality! She has an amazing team of very talented people and an endless array of resources! And, if she can’t find it, she will build it! She is a truly gifted designer and true to her motto, “the story is found in the details”! The bride and groom’s 365 guests will forever be part of their story attending several wedding weekend events that were orchestrated to be festive, flavorful and fun! From the Welcome Party to the grand exit, Jennifer helped ensure the guests were having a fantastic time and were treated to a unique experience! The wedding was not only the talk of the town but also the talk of the South! The bride and groom are on cloud nine and will never forget their wedding weekend filled with family and friends, perfectly orchestrated by Salt Harbor Designs! As the mother of the bride, I was able to enjoy the weekend knowing that the Salt Harbor Designs team would ensure that every detail was attended to for a once in a lifetime occasion. Thank you Salt Harbor Designs! You are amazing!
