Meet Laura Sorensen & Shirley Cook of Sugar Snap Events

(1) Name of Business: Sugar Snap Events, LLC

(2) Service Provided: Wedding coordination and wedding florals/décor.

(3) What is your business philosophy? To work hard and thoroughly and to take our client's best interest to heart. Our goal is to make their wedding day as stress free as possible so they can focus on what is most important- their new lives together, their family, and their friends.

(4) What sets you apart? Our ability to recognize both our client's and vendors' needs in order to make each wedding day as seamless as possible. Our clients always have 2 coordinators on site for rehearsal and wedding day and we always stay until the end of the event. In addition, we offer personalized floral/decor services set in a collaborative environment that allows our clients to achieve the look and feel they desire for their special day.

(5) How long and where? Sugar Snap Events has been serving brides since 2003. We are both natives of the Outer Banks and our past experience in event planning, catering/restaurant management, and familiarity with Outer Banks locations and vendors provides our clients with the insight and knowledge they need to have a spectacular wedding day.

(6) Best advice you have? Laura’s advice: “Remember to flex… or you will snap :) It is important to have the wedding of your dreams and we strive to ensure that. But at the end of the day the most important thing is not the color of your linens but the fact that you are married to the one you truly love.” Shirley’s advice: “When planning all of the special touches for your wedding day be true to who you are- with music selections, readings, the overall look/feel of the event. And remember to be present and focus on each and every moment because it all happens so quickly! “

(7) What is your favorite part of the job? Shirley: “Watching the groom's face as he sees his bride for the first time. After that, getting hugs from the family at the end of a successful event. “ Laura: “Listening to the toasts from best friends and family- I always laugh or cry in the BEST way:) After toasting it is the surprised reaction at the end of the night when they realize ‘Wow! We couldn't have done this without you.’ And of course, the hugs!”

(8) What is your favorite place? Laura: “My front porch.” Shirley: “Wilmington, NC”.
(9) What are your favorite hobbies? Shirley: “Hanging out and drinking a glass of wine with my girlfriends, bowling, and going to concerts.” Laura: “ Ditto But NO bowling!! It breaks my nails :) Ha ha.”

(10) What is your favorite meal? Laura: “A pint of Ben & Jerry's in my fave PJ's on the couch at the end of a lonnnggg day.” Shirley: “I'm a carb girl so nothing makes me happier than a big bowl of mac n' cheese or a plate full of crinkle cut french fries. “

Laura and Shirley are an amazing team. We hired Sugar Snap for both flowers/decor and day-of wedding coordination. Shirley handled our flowers and was incredibly helpful giving me ideas, photos and helping make sure our wedding looked beautiful and stayed within our budget.
Laura manged our day-of wedding coordination and made sure everything on our wedding day was absolutely perfect. She was able to quickly make decisions and even when things didn't go exactly as planned (rain!) she made sure our family, wedding party and all of our guests had a great time.

Shirley was so enjoyable to work with! She was extremely personable, flexible and prepared our bouquets and boutonnieres perfectly.

The bouquets were beyond my imagination!! I had a great feeling that she would put together exactly what I envisioned just by taking to her, but they were even better than what I had pictured!

I cannot recommend Sugar Snap events enough for any of your flower/decorating needs!

Shirley was one of my favorite vendors to work with for our wedding. From the first phone call I knew I wanted to work with her. From just a few questions and picture ideas, she created exactly what I was envisioning. My bouquet was absolutely gorgeous and I didn't want to let go of it the entire night!

Shirley at Sugar Snap Events was absolutely fantastic to work with in planning my daughter's 9/27/14 OBX wedding! Between our locations of Ohio, Virginia and the OBX, planning was a lot of e-mail, a couple of phone sessions and even Pinterest sharing. Shirley captured Lauren's vision for what she wanted for her wedding and brought it to life - - from her bridal bouquet to the hydrangea centerpieces in nautical roped vases to the navy and white paper lantern backdrop behind the sweetheart table to the bistro lights on the pool deck. The huppah on the beach with the beautiful white draping and greenery and then the coral sand scrolling down the center aisle for the ceremony itself were perfect as well. She's a pleasure to work with, is very responsive and provides creative ideas and alternatives to ensure the bride's happy (and her mother too). I wished we lived closer so I could have the pleasure of working with Shirley again - she's a gem for sure!

Laura went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. She was very organized and confirmed all details with my vendors which took some stress away from me. She even found some things I overlooked and ended up getting some money back. It was nice having somebody else direct the guests up to cocktail hour, tell us when cake cutting was, etc. I definitely wouldn't have done it any other way.

We also hired her for set-up and break down which was wayyyy worth it. I loved not having to set up the tables, linens, decorations. We came the next morning to pick up our stuff and it was back in the packages/boxes and all lined up ready to be put in the car.

We used Sugar Snap Events for coordination services and florals. Laura (coordination services) was absolutely amazing! She was there every step of the way for anything I needed. She calmed me down when I had "wedding brain" and helped with everything possible. She is very detail oriented and knows exactly what it takes to make your wedding day perfect! If you are looking for a wedding planner, I highly recommend Laura. My fiancé even commented multiple times how great she was when she was directing us all during the rehearsal and day of.
My flowers from Shirley also turned out beautiful. I didn't have much in mind for flowers. Shirley drafted up some ideas for me and I couldn't believe how gorgeous they were when I saw them on my wedding day! They are both great to work with. Wouldn't change a thing about these two and my experience with them!
