    I can tell you now who we are using for our 09/09/09 wedding in Kill Devil Hills. And I can give you reviews in about 6 weeks! 1. Renee Landry Style .. Have only worked over the phone and by emial but has been responsive. 2. Bob Woody ... Very response by email, very helpful, and very nice in person we met with him about 2 weeks ago instead of having a formal rehersal. 3. N/A 4. Argyles Resturant.. they also just do wedding cakes.. and I'm pretty sure she will also do cupcakes. The samples of cake were amazing!

    We are using Red Sky Cafe for our rehersal dinner and we asked them to do cupcakes for the dessert.  I love cupcakes, but it is often hard to find a good one.  I tasted ones from RSC at the wedding expo and they were delicious, when they asked what we wanted served for dessert it was an easy answer!  Our actual wedding cake is from Just Desserts.  We had originally contacted Great Cakes of the Outer Banks, because you can correspond with them online.  However, after attending the wedding expo we liked the taste of Just Desserts' cake better.  Our florist is Sugar Snaps and our officient is Rev. Del Wilson.  We are not having a DJ.  Hope this helps!

    1.  flowers - we had sugar snap events do our day of coordination and flowers/decor.  for doc they were amazing.  i loved working with shirley and laura.  however, i thought the flowers/decor left a little something to be desired.  i've heard great things about bloom/renee landry style.2.  officiants - our friend was ordained online.  best decision!3.  dj - we used dj bruce from www.djobxweddings.com. bruce is so sweet and totally laid back we loved him.  DJ Bruce J 252 715 0164; [email protected] djobxweddings.com With thousands of songs on vinyl and digital mp3’s, experienced DJ Bruce J offers professional sound and affordable pricing for your special day.4.  cake - we used great cakes of the obx (marsha johnson).  she was very nice to work with, no issues.  our cake was amazing (taste and look), plus we did cupcakes.  you can email me at [email protected] if you have any questions!

    Glad to see KimberlyH1's response as I'm using Renee Landry, Rev. Jay Bowman, and Just Desserts for my Oct. 10 wedding. I'll post reviews after the event.

    Hi!Our wedding is on 9/12/09 and  I can give you a referral for DJ and Flowers.  We are using the Embellishers and they are wonderful to work with.  They will also do your "day of" coordination if you don't have a wedding planner.  Very thorough and so great to work with! For DJ, we are also using DJ Bruce. I saw someone else is using him and I will also echo her comments.  He is so laid back but very professional.  Not pushy and overbearing like some other DJs.  He is young and knows his stuff.  I was impressed from the first time I met him at the wedding expo. Hope this helps! Depending on when your wedding is, I can update you after ours is over!!

    kstar -- I am also using the Embellishers!!! Aren't they the best? As far as I'm concerned, they were 1/2 the price as Blooms plus, Gail and Brenda are the greatest! I brought my "entourage" to the OBX a couple weeks ago to meet them and they were awesome! Sweet and very knowledgeable... They will be doing our 'day-of'' coordination and set-up and I'm so glad. We don't have to worry about anything! Most coodinators are 900+ for day of, the Embellishers were half that.

    Wow!  Thanks everyone...you have all been so helpful.  I have booked Bob Woody as the officiant.  Now I just have to make up my mind about everyone else.  I can't remember who posted that they would get back to me after their wedding in Oct., but if you remember that would be awesome!   Thanks again!

    Hello! I just got married at the Love Boat in Frisco this past April, and we had cupcakes. They turned out beautifully. I'd be glad to send pix if interested.

    Thanks so much for all of the referrals.  Dawnchit, I'd love to see your pics and get the name of the place that did your cupcakes :-)
