Taylor and Samantha were amazing throughout the whole process of planning our 150+ person wedding on the beach in Corolla, NC at Pine Island Lodge. From the first meeting to the day of, they were organized, extremely professional, thoughtful, and continuously patient (we had a lot of cooks in the kitchen with opinions). They pushed when needed (to ensure we met deadlines and booked and paid our vendors), but also stayed out of the way and didn't over-communicate or nag. They had excellent recommendations for vendors who they had worked with before, but were also completely open to working with new folks and supported all of our wacky out of the box requests (e.g. pinatas during the reception lol). On the day of, they managed all the vendors (a small Army!) with precision and ease and shielded us from any commotions, decisions, and issues that came up - I literally felt zero stress, didn't have to make any decisions, and was completely in awe of the final decor when I finally saw it after getting ready with my bridesmaids. They have great taste, lots of experience, and an excellent eye for setting up the venue and managing the flow of guests. I cannot recommend Coastyle enough - they will ensure your wedding day is both perfect and 100% you.

Everything we needed and more...
Samantha and Taylor bring new meaning to the term “dynamic duo”. They are friendly, excellent listeners, problem solvers, and professionals. There are always those moments in planning where you feel like you’re being pushed in a direction, Samantha & Taylor recognize that and make sure that you are heard and get what you want. They do this while still maintaining good relationships. These ladies are also extremely flexible about communication styles and needs. Which was a big concern as we are based in Texas. They managed this beautifully and did an excellent job of keeping us on task and on time. We knew what was needed in advance and they guided us through each process. They made our vision of some crazy make shift thing come to life, and were there every step of the way cheering us on, telling us it was possible. Their Rolodex of vendors is spot on, and for someone planning from afar this is worth its weight in gold. #realtalk
We LOVE LOVE LOVED our wedding and it was all thanks to these spectacular business women. If you’re thinking of going somewhere else, don’t. I’d come back to OBX just to see them again, that’s how much I enjoyed working with them.

Don't bother considering anyone else...
We consider ourselves very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Samantha and Taylor from Coastyle for our wedding (5/24/19)… They were above all else, absolute professionals, imminently responsive, creative and an absolute blast to work with. At their core, they are just good people. Without a doubt, we would have not have had the wedding experience we had in the Outer Banks had we not been blessed to work with them to plan our wedding. They were deferential to our thoughts and vision for our event but had a ton of ideas where we didn’t have a clear picture for what we wanted to accomplish. They were extraordinarily thoughtful in that they took into account the specific venue that we were hosting our wedding at to ensure that all of the little details had been considered. They helped us tremendously in identifying vendors for the services that we were looking for and gave us enough options/space to pick those that fit best for our personalities and what we wanted to accomplish. Where we were unsure, we absolutely trusted their judgement and felt completely comfortable asking for their recommendation, knowing that they were being honest and considerate in providing their thoughts. Throughout the entire process, they kept us focused and on point and without them, we firmly believe it just would not have happened nor gone as well as it did.We have absolutely no reservations recommending them as wedding coordinators and would work with them 11 times out of 10 if we had to do it over again. They have our contact information and should you want to talk to someone who has worked with them as a reference, we have given them permission to use us (just reference our wedding date above). Above everything, thank you Samantha and Taylor for making our wedding day an absolute blast. “Thank you” just does not feel adequate to cover everything you did for us!

Amazing Wedding Planners and Un-Planners...
Coastyle is an incredible team made up by two women, Samantha and Taylor. We live in New York State and had a dream beach wedding in the OBX. From our initial planning call we knew they were right for us. We composed our own unique planning package for what we needed. They worked with our vendors and made the process so easy to explore options and book. Then Covid happened, they understood our fears and were extremely compassionate about us having to cancel. They helped un-plan just as actively as they helped plan. It really eased the stress. Sadly, they wont be with us on our wedding day (were eloping locally) but we still think of this wedding planning/unplanning process fondly because of them! 10/10 recommend!!!
