Wow! When booking our OBX wedding (on not a lot of notice) I didn't know where to start but after reading about Tony on his website I thought I'd reach out to him. He contacted me back the same day and after a 20 min phone call, I knew he could help make our day perfect. I immediately could tell how seriously he took his profession. From that day on, I e-mailed with Tony and his wife, Mary, about the details of our ceremony and always felt taken care of! When my husband and I met with Tony when we got down to the OBX the week of our wedding to finalize our ceremony, we laughed and cried together for about 1.5 hours. It was like we had known Tony for quite some time. Our families have said over and over how wonderful the ceremony was and we just couldn't be happier with how it turned out. I also used their company, I Do OBX Chairs for the ceremony set up (OMG beautiful) and worked with their florist, Gail, for our flowers. I just can't say enough good things about this team. THANK YOU!!Sent on 04/26/2019

Tony was a awesome officiant who delivered a first class ceremony! He was so easy to work with and made sure the bride and grooms day was what they expected. I highly recommend his services. Thank you and your staff for everything from the officiant, the chairs, alter, decorations, and flowers. We loved everything about your services and you!Sent on 05/03/2019

Archway, Bridal Bouquet, and Boutonniere were PERFECT!
Morgan and I hired I Do OBX Weddings to rent an archway as a focal point for our ceremony, as well as provide the bridal bouquet and groom's boutonniere. Throughout the process I worked with Tony, Mary, and Gail (florist). Tony and Mary were easy to work with. Since Gail was responsible for my bouquet and floral swag, I worked with her a bit more than Tony and Mary. Gail was exceptional to work with. She took all of the pictures and ideas I sent her and developed a bouquet and floral swag that was exactly what I wanted, but better. I cannot emphasize to you the joy I experienced looking at my gorgeous bouquet.Sent on 03/26/2019
The day of the ceremony, the bouquet and boutonniere were delivered to my hotel room with ample time. I Do OBX took care of the setup of the arch and raked the sand prior to the ceremony, and they broke everything down post ceremony. They were respectful of our space during pictures and did not remove the arch until we were done using it as a backdrop for our photos. I am glad that I chose to do an arch for my ceremony and would recommend that you do the same if you're considering a beach ceremony. Additionally, I am pleased that I went with I Do OBX Weddings/Chairs because they not only recreated my vision, but did so beautifully and with minimal effort on my part.
Thank you Tony, Mary, and Gail for helping to make my wedding day perfect!

Best Vendor of the Day
Tony was absolutely incredible. He was flexible with us because we did change the time of our ceremony. He met with us a few days before the ceremony and walked us through everything and we felt so comfortable and at ease talking to him. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and you can tell he truly takes pride in what he does and the people he works with. We had multiple people come to us after the wedding and say what a great job he did. We truly loved having him as our officiant and making our ceremony a fairytale come true.Sent on 11/12/2018

We used I Do OBX Weddings for ceremony chairs, and driftwood arch and we also used Tony as our officiant. Tony and Mary were amazing to work with. They set up the chairs exactly as I requested and the driftwood arch was beautiful! Tony made the ceremony fun, relaxed and exactly as we wanted it. He was so nice to work with! You can tell he has a lot of experience officiating weddings. It also shows that he cares a lot about the couples that he works with. I would recommend them to anyone looking to get married at the OBX. They do an amazing job!!Sent on 11/18/2018

The only officiant to use
Seriously my husband and I can't express how much we love Tony. He is so warm and welcoming & is just perfect at what he does. He truly makes your ceremony so sentimental & gets to know the couples he is marrying to make sure he does the best he can to capture the right mood for the ceremony. He is the only one to consider!Sent on 11/06/2018
I Do OBX Weddings's reply:Mrs. Boyd! Thank you so much for those kind words and I am the lucky one to have had the honor to have stood with you and Jon on the beginning of your lives as husband and wife:)) Much love and happiness my friend!

We chose to use I Do OBX based on the fact that they offered packages for a stress free experience. We chose the coastal elegance package and everything from chairs, arbor, aisle decorations, set up, breakdown, flowers (including the bouquet and boutonniere), and of course our officiant, Tony, was included. The ceremony went perfectly and our experience with Tony was out of this world. We met Tony just a few days before our wedding but it felt more personal than that. He truly made the day so special and I will recommend him and I Do OBX to anyone getting married in the Outer Banks. Thank you guys for a magical day.Sent on 10/16/2018

Amazing! A pleasure to work with!
Tony and Mary were both amazing!! Tony officiated our wedding and we could not have asked for anything more. His words were emotional, personal and so incredibly thoughtful. Tony is a wonderful speaker and is so heart felt in his words. He truly does believe in and love what he does and it shows during the wedding ceremony. He met with my husband and I several times to make sure to get to know us and always went out of his way to make himself available when we were in town. Our arch was beautiful and so well constructed and our guests seating arrangements were well planned out and the beach was so well groomed for all of our guests. They thought of everything for the ceremony - chair set up, tide, wind, sand, weather etc. and we were so grateful. Mary did a beautiful job with the all of the bouquets and boutonnieres for our entire bridal party and matched it to the flowers on our arch. They both did an outstanding job with the interior decorating for our reception with the dimming lights and linen flair and and the lighting on the pier. They were both so responsive to questions and made planning from a distance so incredibly easy! They were quick with communication and gave recommendations for what they thought would be appropriate for our special day (which was very much appreciated)!! They were a very special part of our day and we are truly thankful to have had the pleasure to work with them!Sent on 11/16/2018

Tony was professional yet personable! He made us feel at ease and made our ceremony beautiful. He literally thought of everything - even little details that hadn't crossed our mind but made our big day all the more special. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We definitely recommend him to anyone getting married in the OBX!Sent on 10/08/2018
I Do OBX Weddings's reply:Thank you Meghan and I truly enjoyed every minute with you, Robert and Brynlee:) Such a beautiful day and can't wait to see some photos from Erin! Much Love to the Intartaglio's!

Tony Joseph MADE our ceremony. I cannot tell you how many compliments we received on "the officiant". He was confident, personal, funny, professional, engaging - the list goes on...Sent on 10/09/2018
I HIGHLY recommend Tony Joseph/I Do OBX Weddings for both officiant services as well as chairs/arches/tables.
I Do OBX Weddings's reply:I had such a great time with you and Luke on your beautiful Fall day on the Outer Banks! I was honored to be a part of it and send me the gallerry when you get your photos:)) Can't wait to see them!

Amazing and Personable
I honestly don't think we could have found a better fit for us than Tony. Every guest gushed over how sweet the ceremony was and how it was as if he had known us our entire lives. He knows just how to work the room to get the best wedding photos, and really bring the place together. He also helped to assemble the driftwood arch and it turned out just gorgeous. We feel very fortunate to have met him.Sent on 11/14/2018

The savior of our day
On September 25, 2018 tony married me and my husband. We met him the day before our ceremony and we felt immediately as if we always knew him. The day of the wedding it rained all morning. At one point I told my dad well it’ll just have to be moved inside. Tony arrived assured me we would hold off till the last possible minute waiting for the sun. And sure enough 5 minutes before our ceremony was supposed to start here comes the sun. Our day was absolutely everything we wanted. Our chairs, arch, officiant. Every little detail was perfect. I cannot thank tony enough for helping make our day so special.Sent on 12/18/2018

Tony and Mary did an amazing job on our "Gettin Hitched" package for our May 2018 wedding at Whalehead. From the beginning, Tony responded to emails quickly which was important to us since we were planning our wedding from GA. We were honored to have Tony as our officiant. He is very friendly and professional. Our wedding day turned out so beautiful despite the stormy weather. Jenni from Epic Shutter did an amazing job as our photographer.Sent on 09/19/2018

AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING! A class act, so professional, personable, and a great person. I met Tony at the wedding expo and just connected right away that I knew I wanted him to officiate our wedding. Then met his wife and she was amazing as well. You could tell they love what they do and it shows when they connect with their customers. He kept in contact with us the whole time and helped guide us through the process step by step of what we needed done on getting license and how and where to go, then on what to fill out on his site he just made it very seamless and easy. He did an amazing job at our wedding that our guests were coming up to us asking if we knew him before this b/c of the detail he puts into knowing us to make our ceremony great and you could tell he put the effort in. I could go on and on; I highly recommend him. Best experience.Sent on 09/18/2018

My fiance and I are extremely grateful that Tony could be our officiant. He is so down to earth, accommodating, professional and seriously loves what he does. He made our day even more special than anyone else could. After we obtained our marriage license we all sat down for coffee to get to know each other and talk about the wedding. This made us feel so comfortable and confident in Tony. The day of he asked me to proofread what he wrote about my Alex and I and the story of how Alex & I met was beautifully written and recited by Tony during our ceremony. I couldn't help but cry so many happy tears. He and Mary are so quick to respond and helped us out with everything along the way. They are amazing! We are blessed.Sent on 09/04/2018

Top Notch Service
Tony was top notch from day one. His professionalism, help, and advice was more than we could have ever aked for. He really took the time to get to know us as a couple. We had many positive complements from our guests regarding Tony as well. He kept our ceremony serious enough but lighthearted and funny as per our request. I would reccomend him in a heartbeat to any couple looking to get marred on the Outer Banks.Sent on 02/07/2019

It was tough planning a wedding from New York without ever visiting OBX. Tony Joseph made our beach wedding so special. He took the time to get to know us and it reflected in our ceremony. His thoughtful words expressed our feelings perfectly. Mary's flowers were beautiful and were exactly what we envisioned. Thank you Tony & Mary for making our day so AMAZING!Sent on 09/24/2018

OMG!!! I am still receiving complements about my wedding 6 months later....Tony made our special day even more amazing. From start to finish he was absolutely the best!!! Even with some hiccups(nothing to do with Tony or his staff) he helped with everything. From meeting my kids to even actually pinning on the boutineers before the ceremony. He kept my groom, Jason calm up to the minute I walked down the aisle. All his words were from the heart, they made us laugh, cry and were absolutely perfect! Thank you, Thank you!!! Can't say it enough..Tony and his staff made my dream beach wedding come true. Bonnie and Jason SmithSent on 01/25/2019

I Do OBX Weddings should be the ONLY vendor you consider for planning a wedding in OBX! Extremely professional, responsive and innovative...there was literally nothing I had to do except enjoy the day!Sent on 08/13/2018
Last minute changes/requests were no problem and they even found a way for me to marry the love of life, on the beach, in my beloved high-heeled shoes!
Seriously...look no further and book Mary and Tony for your wedding...you will not regret it!
April · Married on 07/24/2018
Tony was amazing to work with!!! He was flexible and truly cared about the little details of our special day. The weather was less than amazing the day we got married. He kept us calm and found a little gap in the rain to move our wedding up to have it on the beach as planned. We couldn't have been happier with our choice! He offers beautiful décor to rent and was beyond professional in our ceremony! You won't regret choosing Tony!Sent on 08/15/2018

Mary and Tony made our destination wedding experience the very best it could have been. They were both very easy to speak with and were exceptional at listening to our plan and wedding ideas. Tony provided his suggestions for our beach wedding and they worked out great! We could not have asked for a better guide. Thanks Mary and Tony!Sent on 08/09/2018

Perfect fit for our perfect day!
We are so thankful for Tony's help with our wedding! He communicated via email or phone, ,met with us prior to finalize details, was always very aware of our needs as well as our families' needs, and coordinated the day perfectly! We had eloped prior to our "big wedding" so he was able to adjust parts of the ceremony accordingly. His calm demeanor and positive attitude was definitely welcomed with the stress of having a destination wedding and a husband who had been gone on deployment until days before the actual ceremony! It was exactly what we needed and we would recommend Tony to anyone looking for an officiant in the OBX area!Sent on 01/06/2019

Tony was "perfect" from start to finish for our son's wedding. All questions were answered promptly, the flowers were just what was requested, the setup on the beach was awesome, and the service was beautiful. He is the "best" and we would highly recommend his services.Sent on 07/23/2018
