Our first networking event was such a huge success! The Crystal Coast Bridal Alliance is the premier organization for promoting this beautiful area as a unique wedding destination for brides across the nation, and and we couldn’t do it without our incredible wedding professionals. That’s why we set out to bring the best wedding vendors of the area together for one night of food, drinks, and good old fashioned networking. Now, we’d like to give Crystal Coast brides an inside look at how we made it happen.
The town of Morehead City maintains 12 beautiful properties perfectly suited for any occasion, including the Train Depot, a restored historic building just two blocks away from the waterfront. With their help, we were able to create the perfect space to hold all of our friends in the local wedding industry.
The Train Depot is a beautifully restored building on it’s own, but the wedding professionals at Charming & Quaint completely transformed the space into a vintage wonderland, bringing antique furniture, art, reclaimed wood pieces, and décor to set the scene for an amazing night. It was incredible to see the Charming & Quaint team completely convert the Train Depot from a blank slate to a well-decorated party.
A Morehead City favorite, Bistro By The Sea is a highly awarded and well-loved staple on the Crystal Coast. The Bistro provides a unique waterfront reception venue as well as a world-class menu to wow your wedding guests. For our event, Chef Tim Coyne created a delicious meal of Vegetable Flatbreads, Prime Rib Wraps with Creamy Horseradish Sauce, Shrimp with Chablis Dill Sauce, and Key Lime Pie Bites. Needless to say, not a single soul left the Train Depot hungry.
What’s a party without something to sip on? We’re so grateful for Promise’ Land Market for providing a great selection of red and white wines for the event. After all, you can’t make a toast without something to clink! Today, we’re toasting to many more events like this in the future, where wedding professionals on the Crystal Coast can come together to share ideas and stories from your incredible Crystal Coast Weddings!
