Gretchen and Gus Dallman

Gretchen and Gus are one wild couple!! Well, Gus is wild and Gretchen just cleans up after him! Gretchen and Gus live in Arizona with Gus' sons, but they decided to have their wedding in Hilton Head. The ShoreHouse at the Hilton Resort hosted a great party--Alison Ward and her crew are always spectacular! Gretchen and Gus exchanged their vows on the beach and then their guests enjoyed cocktails at the ShoreHouse. Gretchen and Gus entered their reception with a Bang--they were announced and then shared their beautiful first dance and then the boys joined them for a quick dance to Apache--it was awesome!! The love story for Gretchen and Gus was quite interesting--Gus had his own version, some of it was even based on fact! Gretchen and Gus and their guests had a great time dancing and enjoying a beautiful South Carolina night. It was a pleasure to work with Mark and Lisa Staff again--they will provide incredible photographic memories for Gretchen and Gus. Gretchen and Gus ended their night with a special dance to Let's Get it On and then the party continued in the Hilton XO Lounge. We look forward to keeping in touch with Gretchen and Gus and we wish Gretchen best of luck with her three crazy men!!

Laura and Matt Wuller

We had a great time with Laura and Matt Wuller. Tracy Nadeau and her crew at Sea Pines Country Club put on an incredible party for Laura and Matt. The ceremony was beautiful--right outside over-looking the marsh. Even the rain held off for the the couple! Dinner was great and then the dancing began--let's just say that Matt has some moves!! He loves to dance and it was a pleasure to make him happy. Laura and Matt are local to the Hilton Head area, so we are excited about keeping in touch with them.

Andrea and Ed Evans

Andrea and Ed are such a fun couple! Every time we met with them we had a hard time staying focused on wedding stuff because we were so busy gabbing about everything else! Andrea and Ed have known each other since college but never dated! ...until about a year ago and then it was LIGHTS OUT!!! Soon, they were engaged and now they are married. Andrea and Ed selected the amazing Westin Spa and Resort on HHI to host their wedding reception and as usual, everything was amazing. Maureen Cohen was an excellent officiant on the beach--right where Andrea and Ed got engaged in fact!! Gregg Flory served as photographer for the evening and we are quite sure that he captured some amazing shots from the entire night. We are very excited that Andrea and Ed are locals so we will be able to keep up with them!

From Andrea

We had the best time! Thank you for making our reception so much fun-people are STILL telling us what a great time they had!

Liz and Ryan Maffei

Liz and Ryan--they are so great! They knew they wanted to have a very detailed reception and we really tried to work hard for them. We did scripted intros for their wedding party--they were a fun crew and they were so cool with Ryan and Liz poking a little fun at them. In addition, each bridesmaid/groomsman couple had their own TV theme song that Liz and Ryan selected for them. We also did separate photo montages for the father/daughter dance, the mother/son dance and the surprise bouquet presentation to Liz's mom. Ches at The Westin Hilton Head set up a great site for Liz and Ryan's ceremony. We were thrilled to work with Jen at Port Royal Club. They hosted a great cocktail time and reception. And, of course, John Brackett and Brent Nelson were spot-on for photography and videography! Liz and Ryan have been together since their college days at Clemson and they moved to the Hilton Head area about five years ago. We are thrilled that they live here in our home town, so hopefully we will see them again and can stay in touch!!

From Liz and Ryan
Jamie & Liz...we can not thank you enough! Ryan and I had THE perfect wedding on THE perfect day and thought that we had THE perfect combination of vendors working with us! You guys were amazing, I guess it is best said by the comments of our guests many of which stated "best wedding they had ever been to", "most fun they had ever had at a wedding", "most special they had ever felt at someone else's wedding". We know we gave you guys a run for your money with lots of ideas and little additions and also...last minute changes but you guys took it all in stride and were true professionals! Ryan and I just want to redo the wedding (EXACTLY THE SAME WAY) over and over each weekend because we had SO much fun. Also, you should know that atleast half of our guests came up to us during our brunch the next morning to compliment us on such a wonderful wedding and fantastic DJ! There are not words that can say thank you enough. You helped make our day everything AND MORE then we could ever dreamed of! Thanks so much and we hope to see you around Bluffton sometime!!
