A Day at the Beach executed a flawless wedding – everything the bride pictured in her head became reality thanks to the hard work of A Day at the Beach. Jess’ professionalism and organization is top-notch, and it truly made for a perfect day.

Kacie, matron of honor

The services from A Day at the Beach were wonderful. Jessica is very organized and stayed on top of me (the bride) for months before the wedding. She was not too pushy, just kept on top of all of the things I was supposed to be accomplishing. The day of the wedding she was a life saver, engaged in every detail and catered to our every need. BHI is a very unique place to plan a wedding and Jessica was extremely helpful with making the experience flawless.

Colleen, bride

Working with Jessica was a breeze. She was very professional and seemed to always have the right answer for any question. I’ve played weddings and receptions for over twenty years. Jessica is among the very best event planners I’ve been lucky enough to work with. Anyone that decides to work with her and the staff of A Day At The Beach can count on a wedding they’re glad to remember.

Jessica provided exactly what I needed leading up to and during the wedding weekend which was an extra set of (knowledgeable, creative, helpful) hands. Leading up to the wedding Jessica was able to provide insight into some intricacies of BHI weddings that I hadn’t thought of (don’t forget bug spray!) and had some creative ideas for working around some issues we had been pondering (wedding cake or no wedding cake?). She also provided some information on vendors and used her relationships on the island to help get things done (like getting the spa to open early for me to get hair done before my 11am wedding). The weekend of the wedding she was right there with everything I needed, reminding me of things that had slipped my mind, shuttling wedding stuff all around the island and running to my house to get my marriage license out of my suitcase when I realized I forgot to bring it to the ceremony. Overall, Jessica was a definite sanity saver for me and my husband. Everything went off without a hitch and I know that wouldn’t have happened without her help!

Haley, bride

Jessica Scully is one of our favorite wedding planners. She is so easy to talk to. Trust me – this is an essential skill for being a good wedding planner. Planning a wedding is all about coordinating people. When we worked with Jessica we noticed how efficiently she worked with everyone else – family, guest, vendors – everyone! She was able to coordinate all of us so that everything flowed logically and smoothly. She brings such a calm and kind energy to the wedding coordinating process. Plus she knows Bald Head Island really, really, really well. She is a wealth of information when it comes to hosting a celebration on the island. I cannot imagine planning a wedding on Bald Head without having her as a contact.
