Brady & David were an absolute breath of fresh air! The SBE team traveled out to Bald Head Island off the North Carolina coast for this spectacular three-day event. We started out Thursday night with a rehearsal dinner party at the Shoals Club, while Friday The Bald Head Island Club hosted the big wedding ceremony and reception, and on Saturday we put on a Masquerade Halloween BBQ!
The Wedding, from Shay: "SBE had a wonderful time planning this wedding. Each and every detail that the bride brought was something that had meaning behind it; Brady truly knew how she wanted her guest to feel for the whole wedding weekend. We had many meetings throughout the process and found a friendship evolving. Brady is such caring person; she wanted every element for her weddding to be flawless and heartfelt. Brady works in real estate and has impeccable taste but she really was able to let my team and I create the vision, feel and elements for her wedding. I loved the fact that Brady was clear on what she had to have and what she did not want... Then we pulled together the team and together we executed the most elegant wedding the coast has seen... Thank you, Brady, for letting us be a part of your special day"
Shay's determination for perfection and refined focus on each and every small detail allows her events to flourish and captivate. See for yourself throughout these images! I just know you will absolutely love, love, love this wedding as much as we do!
From the bride, Brady: "I found Shay Brown Events through Style Me Pretty and she is not only incredibly gifted at wedding planning but she became my friend and confidant through the planning process. We picked Bald Head Island for our destination wedding weekend. The fact that it's an island crated a series of obvious tactical issues but Shay didn't flinch. She exuded a calm confidence that I wouldn't have survived that process without. Shay Brown turned my blush, romantic and intimate wedding vision into a reality.
From the first time I talked to her until the last little hug before I walked down the isle, she was essential and irreplaceable. She made me feel relaxed and confident which as a bride in the midst of wedding planning seemed nearly unattainable. She is very creative and understands exactly how to translate the vision of your wedding into a picturesque beautiful reality. Just by sending her a few pictures of what inspired me she knew precisely how to accomplish it. The table linens, the chair covers, the candle holders, the custom made columns for the arrangements down the isle, the flowers, the petals, the centerpieces, the timelines, the schedules and the overall exacting attention to detail were all done flawlessly. When I finally saw all the elements that we had created and designed come together at the Bald Island Club it literally took my breath away. It mirrored my imagination and as I think back to that evening I am overjoyed that I had Shay and her experienced team. She was extraordinary in her ability to make me feel relaxed and unstressed while taking care of all the little details and taking on any issue I needed help with.
My dress is a blush color and has a romantic soft feel that we wanted to be reflected throughout all the elements. The flowers were done by Shay's recommended vendor Bobby and Mark Designs and I couldn't have been happier. They were stunningly beautiful, incorporating blush pinks, shades of white and a deep blue that really made the pink pop. They worked tirelessly to create exactly what I wanted.
Shay and her assistant Amy were a dream to work with and they paid attention to every detail. They were always there smiling and reassuring me throughout the whole weekend. They rose to every challenge and when hosting an event every night for a destination wedding weekend, there are always unforeseen issues.
I was able to completely trust them to help me create my dream wedding, and couldn't have done it without Shay Brown Events. Having a talented, creative, personable and endearing team of people helping me allowed me to ultimately enjoy my wedding and to really be in the moment and not overwhelmed with all the logistics that come with a wedding.
For that reason alone, to look back on your wedding and feel like you savored the moments that can never be recreated I can not recommend a better partner and planner than Shay Brown."
