Krystal was such a joy to work with. We fully appreciated her calm, level-headed approach. My husband and I live out of town, and before we even came to Emerald Isle before our reception, Krystal was busy looking at our wedding venue, coordinating with our reception site, and making sure all of our vendors were on the same page. Hurricane Arthur came through the night before our beach wedding, and Krystal was prepared several days ahead of time with several back-up plans, coordinating with our rental companies to make sure the deliveries would still happen on time, and making sure we had everything we needed. It was such a load off to know that she was coordinating the chairs, the country club, the officiant - all those last minute details that pile up!

It was so fun spending our day with Krystal. She really brought a level of enthusiasm (without being overly gushy!) to our special day. Even before we had officially hired Krystal, she was willing to be helpful and give me so many wonderful contacts to help make our day happen. The fact that she was willing to help us like that before officially becoming our Wedding Coordinator was a big part of why we wanted to have her with us as our coordinator. We knew that she was dedicated to making things run smoothly the day of and all the days leading up to it. Without Krystal, we couldn't have done it!

Heidi Barlow was phenomenal to work with! She was pleasant, professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and always quick to respond to any questions I had. She even drove to a couple of the properties I had inquired about specifically to give me an idea of the sizes of the rec rooms by comparison when I expressed concern about the rec rooms not being big enough to hold our wedding guests for an indoor reception. Heidi exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend her and her team at A Seaside Wedding & Events by Emerald Isle Realty!!

Emerald Isle Realty was absolutely wonderful to work with. Every question, concern, need I had was handled quickly and professionally. I always dealt with the same person, rather than a different person every time I called, so she knew exactly what I was talking about. She really treated me like I was her only client, and gave me and my wedding as much attention as I could have hoped for. Their prices were very reasonable, especially since I was getting my vacation house for a week, could split cost with others that wanted to stay in the house, and could hold the rehearsal, wedding, and reception all at the same location. They also had event staff on hand at the wedding to help clean, take out trash, or any other things we needed help with. Highly recommend using Emerald Isle Realty!

I cannot say enough positive things about Krystal & Kelly and Emerald Isle Reality. When I first approached Krystal about doing a wedding on the beach and renting a house or houses for my very large family, my budget was extremely limited. Krystal still put her all into helping us. When our budget got unexpectedly larger, without hesitating, Krystal redid all of her work and she found us the most perfect houses for our large families (Boat House and Batten the Breeze).

The original plan for the wedding was going to be something super informal and a pot luck. Krystal went along with it. When that changed to something more formal, she went along with it and gave us great advice for vendors.

On the day of the wedding, Krystal and Kelly were pros. I did not have to worry about anything, because they really took care of everything. The ceremony and the reception sites were perfectly decorated and I was very pleased. There were some hiccups along the way, but Krystal and Kelly improvised beautifully. I am so happy that I found EI reality and I cannot thank Krystal and Kelly enough.

We had a great experience with Krystal at A Seaside Wedding & Events. She was very helpful and honest about what package we needed without trying to upsell us. We were very happy with the house (SeaLah)and the services provided by Emerald Isle Realty. Equipment order was appropriate, updated to reflect the change in weather, and delivered/picked up on time. Our only issue was with the linens - we found out just before the wedding that our requested lines weren't available and had to select different ones. Our patterned linens were a major element of our decor and this change was very stressful. I believe this was an issue with their subcontractor. Final linens were very nice and Emerald Isle had people arrive and put them on the tables after the rest of the equipment was delivered. We would use A Seaside Wedding & Events / Emerald Isle Realty again over other rental companies on the island.

It could not have been possible for me to find a better wedding planner than Heidi and Krystal at A Seaside Wedding. They are incredible. I was the bride that wanted to elope and I am so incredibly thankful I did not because we and our guests had such an amazing time. In fact, we heard from so many it was the best and most fun wedding they'd ever been to. We weren't expecting that but it sure made everything feel so worth it. Heidi and Krystal are so easy to work with, so responsive, so accommodating and really are experts at their job - taking on all the worry and planning that goes into the big day. Beyond that I enjoyed their personalities so much and hope we stay friends! Highly recommended.

Frank and I enjoyed working with Heidi Barlow throughout our months of planning. She was always available for suggestions and a joy to meet with each time we visited the Emerald isle area. On the event date, she was beyond helpful, as was her assistant, Katie. I look forward to staying in contact for when we visit Emerald Isle again! Thank you Heidi!

We fell in love with The Boat House and knew immediately that it was the place where we would be married. The staff at Emerald Isle Realty were very attentive, professional, and pleasant through all the planning. It is a beautiful location that will take your (and your guests') breath away and leave treasured memories for years to come. My husband and I don't for a second regret booking The Boat House for our wedding and reception!

We had the most beautiful wedding that I could possibly imagine in Emerald Isle, thanks in great part to the staff at Emerald Isle Realty, especially Heidi Barlow - wedding planner extraordinaire! Planning a destination wedding to NC was not easy, but Heidi made it all possibly. On the day of the wedding, Heidi had everything running like clockwork and I didn't feel like I had to worry about a single thing. She did everything from running the rehearsal to helping make starfish decorations for our getaway car. We had the ceremony right on the beach, and then the reception at a beautiful house called the Boat House which had a gorgeous sound-side location and was a great spot to watch the sunset during the reception. It was absolutely perfect!

Amanda and her associates helped us to book the wedding house and find the perfect house for the groom's family to stay in as well. All of our relatives who came out have already started to book their next vacation, as they work with you to accomodate all your needs! We even had an elevator for the elderly relatives to enjoy the pool and all the floors in the house. It also really helped with bringing in the food for the reception and the dj equipment!

Heidi was awesome. She made my wedding stress free. I planned from Chicago and she was able to take my requests & help me find the best vendors to make it happen. She helped me find the perfect house for the wedding, a great place for the rehearsal dinner & even got rid of the beach combers who set up next to our arbor.

The budget and flexibility are only ranked above average because its a beach wedding so its going to be a little more expensive, but if you choose like us, you can have the entire wedding party stay in the house the entire week before the wedding!

And flexibility is great if you don't have animals to worry about - and make sure you start planning a year out because they book up early and book up quickly!

There was a chance for rain on my wedding date and they had everything ready to go in case that happened, but luckily it didn't! I definitely would use them again for another event!

We rented "Boat House" thru Emerald Isle Realty for our wedding, and we couldn't be happier that we did!!! We got married on the Ocean and had the reception at Boat House. It is an ideal setting for a wedding reception. The big lawn was a great place for the tables, the pool deck worked out so well for cocktail hour and the poolside patio was the perfect place for the DJ and dance floor. The house is BEAUTIFUL! It is well appointed, well stocked and gorgeous. Everyone fell in love with it! We look forward to renting it out again sometime. The wedding coordinator from Emerald Isle realty did a nice job.

The house was pretty expensive though with all the beautiful photo's it made the cost worth it. We also had wanted to rent the house for an additional day but the house was already booked for the next week. Heidi was great the entire time. She answered all of our questions and even provided us with some guidance. We really didn't need the two guys that came the day of the wedding to help keep the area clean and was sad that we had to pay extra for them, but they were very kind and even though we invited them to celebrate with us they tried to stay hidden as much as possible. Overall it was a great experience and we'll have some wonderful memories for years to come.

We had a beach wedding which turned out beautifully. We had it out in front of the house we rented for the bride and her family. The house was great and we had many of options to choose from. They weren't real quick in responding to phone calls and emails. We enjoy talking to a person and that was a little hard with them but overall it was alright.

We rented Champagne Bay, a soundfront home, for our wedding on Emerald Isle. The house was beautiful, and Heidi Barlow with EI Realty was great to work with. We were a little upset that EIR called the house on wedding day to ask how many guests we were having an hour before the ceremony, but our wedding planner took care of everything for us. And, the homeowners at this home were a bit difficult, but overall it was a beautiful place for a wedding!

The yard and beach of this home provided a great place for the wedding ceremony and reception. The covered patio and garden were an added plus. The negative to this property was that the kitchen was on the top floor and the house itself was cluttered with personal things from the owner and is in need of a "sprucing" up with fresh paint, wallpaper, etc.
Emerald Isle Realty provided event personnel who were very friendly and helpful. The interaction with the company was professional. I do however have a major complaint. When we rented the house, we were told that there was ample parking along the street for our guests; there were even signs in the garage to designate parking. Subsequently the town of Pine Knoll Shores passed a "no parking" on the street ordinance. Emerald Isle Realty personnel NEVER informed us of the change and I only found out because I called the Police Department myself. This change caused us to incur a $500 charge for a shuttle bus service to and from the hotel - which we were very lucky to get at the last minute (ony because of a cancellation due to Hurricane Irene damage at the Sheraton). Emerald Isle Realty made NO concession for this change in the agreed upon terms of the rental which disappointed me.

A Seaside Wedding & Events by Emerald Isle Realty responded with the following comments:

Thank you for providing this review of your wedding at Sealah. We agree, the garden and yard at Sealah, along with the beachfront location, all come together to provide a serene back drop for such a beautiful occasion. We're happy you were able to enjoy such a special day at this wonderful location.

We are sorry to hear that you found areas of the home to be cluttered. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are pleased to let you know that since your wedding, the owner of Sealah has planned several renovations to include the addition of hardwood floors throughout, refurbishing the carriage house, etc. We trust this property will be revamped and even more beautiful for the 2012 wedding season.

The ordinance which prevented your guests from parking on the streets was passed for the community in which Sealah is located. We know this was an unexpected inconvenience for you and your guests and we're sorry. We did inform you of the new ordinance as soon as we were notified by the town. We are glad that we were able to offset the inconvenience by getting permission to have the two beach accessess in proximity to the property remain open after dark so guests could park and be shuttled from those areas. Again, we know that this change of plans caused you some added stress, but we're glad we were able to work out solutions for you so everything still ran smoothly and you and your guests did enjoy your wedding day.
