We used the trolley services. The trolley was beautiful and so clean inside. We had a few trips to make and pick up and drop off at different locations and the driver was awesome about all of it. Drove safe and it was really enjoyable. Even let the guests decorate the trolley for when it came to pick the wedding party up from the ceremony.

We loved the beach wedding. It was my dream to have the beautiful waves behind and the sand at my feet!! Mallard Marsh was beautiful and we had a great time. I only wish it was not so hot inside! :) THe tables were beautiful and there was plenty of room for dancing. I love the wood walls and hardwood floors. The arch at the ceremony was beautiful!

We had a wonderful wedding with Beach Ball Events. They took care of everything while incorporating all the special touches I could come up with. It was very much "our" ceremony and reception and not just another wedding. They were happy to help us out in every way we asked. We received so many compliments from our guests, and we are very happy with how it all came together. Thanks Beach Ball Events!

My husband and I booked a reception only package through Beach Ball Events at Adrianna's and here are my pros and cons for working with them...

PROS
-The wedding weekend was wonderful. My husband, myself, and both of our parents really enjoyed our tastings and meeting with our vendors all at once. It made planning our destination wedding a lot easier.
-The food was delicious! We served the pasta carbonara, chicken cordon bleu, potatoes, cesar salad, and asparagus buffet style and it was so much better than your typical wedding food.
-Rachel did a great job responding to my emails in a timely manner and made sure that all of my questions were answered.
-It was a pleasure to work with The Embellishers for our flowers. They did an AMAZING job and I loved everything about them!
-We booked the OBX trolley for our transportation of our wedding party and parents the day of the wedding. The driver was prompt, polite, and very professional.

CONS

-Set up: Adrianna's does not set up any decorations, place cards, etc. that you bring in...which was actually fine with me because I have 2 aunts that are very crafty and creative that I knew I could trust. I gave my aunts directions on what to do and how I wanted everything to look and they were going to go to Adrianna's the morning of the wedding to help set up. I found out THE DAY BEFORE the wedding that Adrianna's would be open for brunch on our wedding day, so my aunts could drop the stuff off and Rachel would make sure it was all set up. There were several things that were out of order when I got there, things that I know my aunts would have made sure were done correctly, but it looked like some of the stuff was just thrown together at the last minute. I was not happy because as a bride I spent months organizing and planning my special day and I wanted everything to be perfect. Apparently, Adrianna's and Beach Ball Events don't care as much.

-Food: We booked a 150 person package and ended up having 125 guests. The guests towards the end of the buffet line did not have much to choose from and when my uncle asked if he could have seconds because of this, he was told that they were out of food! I was furious when I heard about this the next day, Adrianna's should have had plenty of food prepared for our guests! This was very unprofessional!

-Drinks: Some of our guests caught Adrianna's servers continuously throwing away full drinks. It wouldn't have been a big deal if alcohol was part of our package, but we were paying $7-$8 per drink! Our guests would set them down to go dance or mingle and come back and they would be gone! One of our guests was sitting at a table talking with some friends and she told them to stop, yet she watched them as they continued to do it....no wonder our bar tab was so high so fast!

-Music: We were told that our reception would go from 6-10, but the bar and dance area would stay open as long as we wanted. We were told that at 10:30 the music would have to be turned down a little because it is a residential area, but it would still be loud enough to hear. The DJ was going to put on an ipod with a playlist before he left! THIS WAS NOT WHAT HAPPENED AT ALL! Yes, Rachel told me at about 10 that she was going to leave. My husband spoke with the DJ and he did put on a 4 hr playlist for the party to continue.....but the next thing we knew it was 10:30 and Adrianna's turned the music OFF, the lights ON, and started cleaning up the room with our guest still there! This was very embarrassing because they practically kicked our guests out!! I'm not sure if this was Adrianna's doing or Beach Ball Events, but it was absolutley terrible and because of it I refuse to support either business in the future.

-Cabs: Once again, we were told by Beach Ball Events that they would be more than happy to call cabs for our guests at the end of the night and once again that was not the case. After they practically kicked our guests out of the restaurant and made them sit on the curb, they also refused to even get them a number for the cab company. Luckily, with smart phones they were able to look them up themselves and were told that there weren't any companies that drove over to Manteo. It was so bad that 3 of our guests eventually had to pay 1 of the servers to drive them home! I could not believe this when I found out about it the next day!! I was furious!!! I cannot believe that they would treat our guests like that after we paid them thousands and thousands of dollars for our reception! It was a disgrace and I do not recommend that you work with them, unless you want your guests to be treated like garbage!

-Photography: We did not use their photographer and I am so happy with my decision for that. The photographer for Beach Ball Events is not very good, I think I could do a better job taking pictures and editing them on my Photoshop on my home computer because I'm pretty sure that's what she does.

Overall, it is not worth the money! Beach Ball Events does have its pros don't get me wrong, but the cons definitley out weigh them tremendously. I would think that they would have conducted themselves in a more professional manner, but they didn't. Adrianna's was extrememly rude and disrespectful to our guests and will never get my business again!

Beach Ball Events responded with the following comments:

Beach Ball Events sold Adrianna's during the winter of 2012 to the Williamson's and are now a separate company. Beach Ball has not had a previous complaint from a bride on weddings the Williamson's have performed at their new business location, Adrianna's. We were the company that wrote their contract and performed the wedding planning weekend with Rachel.
Adrianna's is in complete control of the alcohol, food (the bride paid the Williamson's directly), the timing of the reception setup, and the dj (Beach Ball pays Adrianna's for dj services) and music after the reception package was over.
We are ultimately responsible if the bride is not happy and Beach Ball is very sorry if Adrianna's did not perform like they should have. We are in hopes that Adrianna's will take care of this problem for this bride and future brides.

The venue was FANTASTIC! Both the set up at the beach and at Mallard's Marsh. Flowers were wonderful and they were a new vendor to us, but they did a great job. We were disappointed in the DJ service. We had a young crowd and he did not play music that would get the young people on the dance floor. The photobooth was really not a booth at all. It was a photographer with the guests standing in front of a screen. A little disappointing. We knew it would not be an actual booth but thought it would curtain booth type thing. We have asked several times to have photographs touched up, but still they have not been done for us. I would recommend Beach Ball Events, but would make sure to give the DJ a list of songs. He said he knew what to play and to only provide him with song NOT to play, make sure you give him your list. Photography was nicely done and I would say the pictures are good. Just need touching up on some of them, but can't seem to get that done now that wedding is over!

We are so happy with Beach Ball Events. They made it so easy for us to plan everything from out of state. All of our emails were answered promptly and anytime we made a phone call someone was there to answer. Our officiant Chris made sure our ceremony was exactly what we wanted and sent us several examples for us to choose from. Adrianna's was a beautiful venue and the staff went above and beyond. (They even ran to get a safety pin when I ripped out my bustle!) We (and our guests) loved our cake. Ryan did an amazing job and we love all our pictures. Rachel is absolutely wonderful...she made sure everything went according to plan and right on schedule. It was so wonderful to be so stress free and not have to worry about a thing the day of our wedding. Thank you so much!

I had the worst experience using beach ball events for our wedding. We bought one of the packages that including everything even the wedding planner. The wedding planner did nothing. They actually asked my guests to take down the decorations we provided for the ceremony and reception. it was embarassing. They told me and my husband to go first in the buffet line and my photographer offered to make us our plates saying this is rediculous the bride and groom don't make their own plates. My bouquest looked like rotten lettuce. The food was okay. The dj's equipment was poor quality. The only think useful out of the entire package was the chair and tables and dining equipment and the cake by linda bradely was amazing!!! It would have been much cheaper to buy all the services separately than the package-especially since the wedding planner valued at $2000 did not do $2000 worth of work. They refused to help set up anything that they did not provide. I think if i spent $2000 on a wedding planner she would do anything i asked. All she did was send a few emails. Amanda actually took a lunch break while my freinds ran around setting everything up. I was not there for anything while i was getting my hair and make up done but it was so obvious to my guests that they said these things to me.
