    You won鈥檛 find anyone better !!

    This was truly the best purchase we made through the whole wedding process. Kerri was the most professional, informative, organized and helpful wedding planner. From start to finish she made us at ease, steered us in the right direction, helped us find all our vendors, gave recommendations and overall made the wedding day so smooth. I would pay for her time and time again. Hardest part is when it鈥檚 over, we don鈥檛 get to work with each other anymore. Thank you Kerri from the bottom of our hearts.

    Simply the best!

    Kerri and her team supported every aspect of our planning for a destination wedding in OBX. Her knowledge of local vendors and venues helped us make excellent choices, her timeline kept us on track and confident that we could turn our vision into reality. I highly recommend Kerri because not only was she professional, but we enjoyed the entire process of working together. We were able to completely enjoy the wedding day knowing Kerri had everything prepared and knew our goals, hopes and dreams. We couldn't have been more pleased with her team's services! They went above and beyond!
