Well its “Almost Official”. We now have our marriage license. It’s getting close. So now just have to say our “I do’s” and then get it signed and then its Official. Everything is almost set. Janine has her dress, us guys have our outfits, the venue is set, the restaurant is set…things are coming together.
All locations are set. We have the location for the ceremony and the reception set.
Just to recap, we are having our ceremony right on the sandy shores of Atlantic Beach at Visions Events and Beyond.
Now we have found the restaurant for where we are having the ceremony. Its Floyd’s 1921 just across the bridge in Morehead City.

We are heading back to the beach to try to figure out restaurants. We had a couple of places in mind but one place is out because of where the private room is. It’s up two flights of stairs…so onto the other place. It also had a private room with a separate entrance, and it seemed like it was going to be just right. At the time we looked at the restaurant, we were unable to talk to the owner or a manger that could of assisted us with setting up the event. So we grabbed the event packet and left our information for an owner or manager to contact us to get more information. After a few days, nothing, nada, zip. So after trying to contact them with no luck either. I had my best man try to get in touch with them.
Luckily he was able to and got some more info. After transferring that info to my parents they were gonna set it up. Well it just so happens, they don’t book events on Friday or Saturday, and that they say they do 5,000 a night on those nights. These supposed facts are very odd considering two things. One – in their event packet we were given it said they host events any day of the week…Two – when we went in to their establishment on a Friday during dinner hours there wasn’t a soul in the place other than the hostess and some cooks. My parents were also told that the packet we were given was put together before they had the private room…OK STOP WAIT….I looked through that packet and there were pictures of the private room in there…so that was a flat out lie. Then the suggestions that were given were just bad…one of the suggestions was that we could reserve the outside upstairs deck…yeah that wont happen. The next suggestion which was the one that just makes me scratch my head and ask what the hell was he thinking….he said that we could have our dinner BEFORE the wedding…just what in anyone’s smart head would think that would be a good idea for a wedding? So that suggestion was out.
The only other idea that was given is that we could pay the $5,000 to book that private room AND pay for the food. That is insane and out of the question.
So now we have a couple more restaurants in line that we are going to check out and try their food. We know which place we like and they were very nice and professional. Wish us luck.
