These two became so close to my heart way before their wedding day! Before I started my business almost 2 years ago I met them while working as the Event Manager for a group of Oceanfront Resorts. They booked their wedding at The Breakers Resort in sunny Myrtle Beach, SC. Amanda & Toby traveled from Pennsylvania many times during the planning process, and each time would come to visit me! We quickly developed a wonderful friendship so when they heard the news that I had left the hotels to start my event planning business they quickly reached out. Amanda & Tony told me the only reason they booked the resort was because of ME!?!! Little ole me!! They then hired me as their Wedding Planner & Coordinator and I couldn’t be more proud to work for such great individuals.
The ceremony took place on the beautiful oceanfront lawn at The Breakers Resort with 100 of their closest friends & family, all who had traveled from PA! It was a perfect day with not a cloud in the sky as Amanda walked down the aisle. Guests shed tears into colorful vintage handkerchiefs while Amanda & Toby were wed by her very own cousin, so emotional!
Once vowels were exchanged cocktail hour took place on the lawn just next to the ceremony site where everyone rocked personalized sunglasses and sipped margaritas!
The Breakers Resort is home of Myrtle Beach’s only 15th floor oceanfront ballroom – If you could see this view in person, BREATHTAKING! Toby & Amanda started their night by dancing on the clouds to Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud".
The Bride & Groom are such fun people and are always up for having a good time that a party is all they wanted most for their reception. Ryan Robinson of Globaltruth Entertainment was sure to make that happen and kept the party going all night!
One Life Photography provided an awesome photobooth in which guests could not stay away from! One of my favorite pictures from 2016 was one from this very photobooth (you’ll see below).
The Foster’s kicked off their marriage with a sparkler getaway and toes in the sand.
Toby & Amanda, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for having me as your wedding planner, wedding coordinator and now as great friends! I look forward to you all moving to Myrtle Beach in a couple years and sharing many memories in the future! CHEERS TO FOREVER
