Blooms is highly recommended by every OBX vendor and their mom. They have been great to work with. They have come down in price from their initial quote. They can put up lanterns for $400 under a tent, which is worth it instead of having your friends and family try and wing it themselves. I am not excited about spending money on flowers that will only be worn for 1 day and they have worked w/my budget (although I did end up spending more than I though I would). They have some great ideas and you can tell that they genuinely care about the quality of flowers and decor at weddings.

Their food is fantastic asian fusion tapas. They are a family run restaurant and catering business. Delicious food, good prices. Sometimes they take a while to respond to phone calls or emails, but hopefully their prices and taste of their food make it worth while.

Kelly's Culinary Delights
 
( 1.0 / 5.0 )
I tried to work with this caterer, but they weren't very amenable to answering questions or making special requests. They have a great reputation for providing quality, standard wedding food, but we were looking for something unique, not stuffy or traditional.

Currituck Club is basically a golf shop with a dining room, bar, and outdoor area. You can't see the sound or the beach from there. There's a great outdoor space that is covered for dancing. They offer buffet/stations for a good price. We didn't choose this place because it lacked character. It is just a regular country club-type atmosphere. The prices are good though and the staff was really, really friendly. The top wedding planner suggested this place as a great rehearsal dinner place, but it's pretty pricey for that. It leaves a classy impression, but we're more casual and un-classy, so it didn't work for us!

Elizabethan Gardens
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The Elizabethan Gardens are GORGEOUS and would make a fantastic, beautiful ceremony and reception site. It is in Manteo, which is an island, and, while there's some water, it's blocked off by a gate and fence. Other problems were that there are a lack of quality accommodations around there. They recommend 1st Colony Inn, but it's really not that great and the owners are just frat brothers who refer to each other... nice though. Did I mention it was beautiful?

Mike and dianna's grill room
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
They have a small private room and can accommodate larger groups in their main dining room (although that is less private). They are flexible and can do family style, sit-down, etc. Some of their entrees require an extra fee. They are also flexible on the bar (offering certain beer/wine, total open bar, etc.). We originally wanted something that could accommodate a large number of people, but budget-wise and because there's a lack of such venues, we settled on this. The prices are reasonable and the menu choices are good. People in the area speak highly of this place.
