Elegant and spacious ballrooms- very modern spaces to work with! The location is right across from Mayfaire Towne Center, so it’s very convenient for shopping and entertainment as well!

Hot Fish Club

Murrells Inlet is one of the most beautiful coastal areas in North Carolina and Hot Fish Club has the perfect view of the sound! The restaurant has excellent food so catering is an option as well. The outside Gazebo has 3 bars and a great place for live bands- it’s the ultimate party zone for sure. The staff are all extremely friendly as well!

Great communication, attention to detail and above all else, amazing photos!

Catering


Middle of the Island

Best bang for your buck in the Wilmington NC area. They are very easy to work with and consistently deliver in spades!

Bon Appetite

VERY high quality food and reasonable pricing as well. Best shrimp and grits we’ve ever had! If you’re in Wilmington, stop in for breakfast or brunch and order from the weekly specials menu (unless you get the award winning shrimp and grits from the regular menu). They always have great versions (that change each week) of eggs Benedict, frittatas, and other breakfast favorites, like a lasagna omelet and even a pulled pork BBQ eggs Benedict!

 

 

Event Planners


Kickstand Events

Working with Sally and Kickstand Events is such a treat. I can tell you from another vendor’s standpoint, she exhibits excellent communication and commitment above and beyond the call of duty to ensure everything is perfect for everyone involved. Sally helped with everything from floor plans to timelines, PLUS she booked the band’s ferry tickets to Bald Head Island and back. Is having your own golf cart on BHI rockstar status? It should be, and that’s Kickstand Events.

Total Package Events

Judy is wonderful to work with and will ensure your big day is exactly as you wish!

Sound for Wedding Ceremonies


Modern Sound

If you want to ensure your guests & family can hear your vows, you want to work with Gregg Scott & Modern Sound. Sonic Spectrum’s experience working with Gregg is consistently excellent. It’s no wonder our paths always cross when he’s providing sound for the band on big stages, where the stakes are high & only professionals are trusted with the job.
