We contacted Beachpeople Weddings (David and Margo) on 12/28/16 to get more info on their services for our wedding on 2/11/17. Being that it was a little less then two months away we were very worried it would not be possible or we would have to cut corners to make it happen.... Read More From the moment we received our first email back from David and Margo we knew our dreams could come true. That very first email they were very straight forward with the prices (great prices!) and services they offered. They gave us suggestions for the services they did not offer such as arbor/arch, chairs, and tables etc. We were also given suggestions on how to do hair or what to wear in case it was cold or windy. These were things we did not think about since we do not live on or are at the beach often during the winter months. The phone appointment was where we all went over everything for the big day and when we ended that conversation my husband and I looked at each other and just smiled. David and Margo made things so easy and as stress free as possible. Margo assisted my husband and I in customizing our vows (something we both had dreaded). She made it a breeze! The day of the wedding they arrived and Margo started capturing precious pictures and David set up the location according to what we wanted. The ceremony was exactly how we wanted it to be beautiful and relaxed. David played his flute which was wonderful! We did the sand ceremony which included our four kids (other places we looked at would not accommodate this many children in the sand ceremony). It was a lot of fun for the kids and meaningful to us. David spoke slowly and was patient with my husband who froze up on two occasions, it made for a good laugh! At the end we wanted David to blow his shell horn, everyone thought that was neat. He also played a little on his flute for us to have our first dance right there on the beach. Meanwhile all this was going on Margo was capturing some AMAZING pictures and we had no idea. She got some pictures we wouldn't have thought possible because we did not once see her actually taking them. When we saw the pictures I told my family "I will never forget this day and if for any strange reason I ever did Margos pictures would tell me everything I need to know." Anyone can take a picture but it takes someone great to capture a moment where you can see and understand the story behind it. That's what Margo did, every picture was taken so perfectly in our eyes. Getting married in North Myrtle Beach and coming from Blythewood (about 3 hours) I was so worried our wedding would be a disaster and even thought about moving it closer to home but it was the complete opposite! It was a dream come true, our dream come true and its all thanks to David and Margo! I knew from that first email they were the right people for us. I loved how they went above and beyond and even beyond that to make sure we were comfortable, confident, and almost completely stress-free going into our wedding day. It makes us want to get remarried just to experience the wonderful and friendly service again! If I could give more then five stars I would. I HIGHLY recommend Beachpeople weddings to anyone! Thank you again David and Margo for making our day as pleasantly unforgettable as yall did!! We will be forever grateful! -Mr. & Mrs. Castillo

We are so pleased with the job that they did.

When the big day came a cold front had rolled in and we had lots of wind, rain, and very cold temperatures. But David & Margo worked with us to watch the radar and we were able to have the ceremony without getting rained on. Despite the cold and wind, everyone talked about what a beautiful and touching ceremony it was! People who weren't at the ceremony thought it was a perfect day to have a tropical beach wedding when they saw our photos! Margo was able to capture all the best moments and even made it seem like it wasn't that cold. Due to the rain and temperature we had to do most of our pictures at the beach house instead of the beach, but she made the most of it and was able to get us great pictures anyway! They are both very down to earth and so easy to work with. We are so glad we found David & Margo to do our wedding and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone wanting to do a beautiful beach wedding!
