Jenny & Tommy

Congratulations to Jenny and Tommy of Dallas, who took a break from big-city life to experience the wedding of their dreams at Oceanic. Through months of careful planning and collaboration, our pier was transformed into a unique and magical backdrop, a truly breathtaking way to kick off the couple’s new life together.

Jenny, whose father grew up in Wrightsville beach and grandparents still call it home, envisioned an elegant coastal-themed wedding with lots of tropical leaves and other greenery to pay tribute to their personal connection to the region. The event’s creative design also included a combination of heavy hors d’oeuvres stations featuring some of the couple’s favorite sea-inspired foods, including crab leg shooters and mini shrimp and grits martinis. They opted for a cocktail-reception presentation instead of a formal sit-down dinner, which fostered a lively and fun atmosphere all the way down to the black-and-white dance floor.

Local businesses making up the team for Jenny and Tommy’s nuptials were Knot Too Shabby Events, Fiore Fine Flowers, High Performance Lighting & Power, and the Oceanic coastal events staff. Frequent phone and email communication was integral to the success, as the bride, groom, and mother of the bride were all helping with planning from out of state.

When the big day arrived, the weather cooperated perfectly and the full day of setup came together beautifully in an impressive display of teamwork. Jenny and Tommy’s enthusiasm was contagious as they and all of their beloved guests enjoyed a night they will always remember, captured by the photography of Ben Finch of Tennessee. We hope their cherished event will inspire future couples searching for ways to throw an unforgettable wedding that blends their personalities with the festivities.
