My husband and I are from Wisconsin, we came down last year to look at the beach options and reception options that Weddings on a Whim discussed on their website. We were not disappointment so we booked. May 2nd of this year we were back for the big day and it was amazing. Gayle always responds quickly if I had questions over the year and the day of and it was a very stress free day for us. I could not have asked or planned a better beach ceremony. It was a day that we will never forget.

Gayle and her team did an awesome job with our wedding! She was very prompt with my emails/calls and answered any questions we had quickly. I couldn’t have imagined our special day to have turned out any better, and it’s mostly thanks to weddings on a whim! Spring break was a difficult time to plan a wedding but they made it happen!!
