Dan + Sasha- The Annex

Take a look at Dan and Sasha’s Annex wedding. Spoiler alert: it’s unbelievably beautiful. Talk about a love fest! That’s what this wedding was. If you know anyone looking for a more intimate, more historic, more romantic venue for their wedding or event, have them call us. The Annex is magical.

Savannah + Jimmy

It’s not every day a love story starts waiting for the cable guy but that’s exactly where this one began! In May 2014, Jimmy was assigned to set up Savannah’s DirectTV and she was totally shocked when she opened her door and saw him standing there. She recalls, “My mouth just dropped. I never saw a cable guy look like him before!” From the moment he walked in the door, it was clear the two had an immediate connection. Two days later, Jimmy texted Savannah early in the morning confessing that he wanted to get to know her and the two have been together ever since! Their love story progressed, and they ended up having a son together which only strengthened their bond. Although they had to overcome some challenges by way of Jimmy having to leave for six months of military training right after proposing and during Savannah’s pregnancy, they were able to find comfort, support and love in each other to make it through.

Savannah and Jimmy both love being on the water and enjoy living in the little fishing town of Sneads Ferry, North Carolina so they knew Wilmington would be the perfect place to get married. Their outdoor courtyard ceremony was beautiful and the couple couldn’t have asked for a more perfect March day to get married. Savannah and Jimmy’s reception was everything they could have dreamed of and more. The soaring cathedral ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and original brick walls completely embodied the historic feel that the couple loved while soft pinks and whimsical florals added a romantic touch. 

The duo made sure to incorporate several of their favorites things into their special day. Their favorite show is “The Walking Dead” so Savannah had a zombie themed garter made. It was fabulous, Jimmy loved it, and the two still laugh about it today! The two also love the “Pitch Perfect” movies (Savannah was finally able to get Jimmy to watch the first one and he was immediately sold!) so as a surprise, Savannah and her bridesmaids performed a choreographed dance for Jimmy and they totally nailed it! For their first dance, they chose Adam Sandler’s “Wanna Grow Old with You” because it perfectly describes their relationship; however, they are two very goofy people so they interrupted the song with snippets of “Baby Got Back.” “The Dougie,” “Thriller,” and finished it off with a “Single Ladies” finale. They both crushed it and guests loved watching their awesome dance routine, including some surprise moves by Jimmy! The newlyweds had the best time making memories before heading off into the night with a dazzling sparkler exit.

Congratulations, Savannah and Jimmy!

Kate + Jason

Through a mutual friend, Jason Sellers and Kate Hooks met one summer night in June 2012 at local Wilmington bar Satellite. Good ambiance, good beer, and good conversation became a lifelong relationship. “We just got to talking all night,” says Kate. “We never really were just friends, we kind of jumped into the dating.”

Jackie + Mike

Jackie Cerami and Mike Chaney met for drinks in the beautiful Windy Park neighborhood of Washington DC. “I was really late,” says Jackie. “It’s kind of a running joke because everywhere we go he’s 15 minutes late, and I’m always the one on time. So it was kind of funny, our first date it was the opposite of how it normally is now.” Mike let Jackie’s tardiness slide that evening, and the couple ended up sparking what would be a two-and-half-year relationship.
