Here is a run down of our vendors.
Welcome BBQ - catered by Chef John (local who has a BBQ on the public beach - he is amazing)
Rehearsal Dinner - La Dolce Vita
Wedding ceremony and reception - The Wharf
Planner - Mary Ann at Celebrations
Photographer - Rebecca Davidson
Minister - Reverend Donovan Myers
Rentals and Flowers - Celebrations
Hair and Makeup - Crispin from Focus Salon (came to my condo)
Accommodations - Harbour Heights (condos)
Transportation - Tropicana Tours
Welcome bags - brought beach bags and koozies from the US and went to Cost U Less and Blackbeards for snacks and beer
I will say, one of the most helpful things was that all of these vendors work together all the time and get along really well. They worked with each other on a lot of the logistics so I didn't have to get involved. For example, it rained all day on the day of the wedding, but Mary Ann worked with The Wharf to set up our "plan b" ceremony layout and Rebecca adjusted our timeline and let Mary Ann know where we would be. By the time I arrived at The Wharf, everything was set up and was absolutely perfect - all I had to do was walk down the aisle! And the sun came out right before we started!
I have to give a huge shout out to The Wharf. They were amazing! They have a private beach for weddings that is adjacent to a patio that is tented with white tents (that you do not have to pay for). They are very flexible and can accommodate as few or as many guests as you have. The service is excellent and the food is amazing. And there is no food and drink minimums. Celebrations brought in the rented tables, chairs and linens, as well as centerpieces. The website for The Wharf does not do it justice - it is the perfect beach-side wedding location and one of very few restaurants right on the water with private space. With such a pretty location and amazing views of the beach and water - you hardly need any additional decor! We were supposed to get married on the beach, but with the weather they moved it to the upper deck of the restaurant and it was still amazing - looking right over the water and the suns
