Valued Outer Banks Wedding Planner | Glam & Lace

What do you value in hiring an experienced Outer Banks wedding planner?  I remember my experience a half a decade ago when DIY brides were few and far between and Pinterest wasn't the craze.  I myself, planning a destination wedding 5 hours away, did not know where to start.  I remember thinking to myself, "I've got this, I am a natural born planner and I don't need any help".  Oh how I was terribly wrong.  I remember hiring a Day of wedding coordinator and I don't know what I would have done without her.  The value of having that point of contact person to help the day flow the correct...

Teresa & Stephen | Duck Woods Country Club Wedding | Glam & Lace

What a gorgeous day to witness two loving people say "I do" at their Duck Woods Country Club Wedding.  It was quite a chilly and windy day, but that didn't stop this party from taking place. I first spoke with Teresa through email and over the phone about her upcoming nuptials and she knew that she wanted to have an Outer Banks wedding but she did not know where or how it would take place.  Teresa, Stephen, and their son Austin made a trip down to the Outer Banks to first meet with me and then start their journey on finding the perfect place to hold their event.  I think that we must have...
