Consider Cutting the Cake to Cut Major Cost
by Sue Artz
You’ve finally settled on your wedding date and location, now for the hard part – finding vendors who are within your budget. The Outer Banks is very isolated and there are not bakeries on every corner like you may see in the city. There aren’t many choices when it comes to cake vendors and although they can create beautiful works of art, such as the popular Sandcastle Cake for your beach wedding, you will pay top dollar for these cakes. For most budget-friendly weddings, spending $900-$1800 (not including the delivery fee) on the cake alone is out of the question. Don’t panic.

After all the weeks of preparation, months of planning, and a lifetime of dreams, it’s all over in a matter of hours – and in the end, what you (and your children, and your grandchildren) will have to remember those fleeting moments that made your wedding day uniquely yours, will be the images captured by your professional photographer. How your hired shooter sees you, your family and loved ones, and the ultimate results of all your hard work is exactly how you will remember the day itself over the years, so to say choosing the right photographer is a big deal might be an understatement.
The importance of a good relationship between your photographer &

that is complimentary, not competitive. Both the photographer and I are looking for the perfect angles and shots so we can give a quality product to the bride. There are no second chances or retakes of what happens.
