Sweet Words

Here are a few reviews from past clients about their wonderful experience with Sandy Brookshire of OBX Celebrations


Working with Sandy Brookshire was such a wonderful experience. She made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable during the entire process. She knew all of the right questions to ask, religious quotes? More spiritual? She hit the nail on the head writing our ceremony. When we met with Sandy to read the draft of the ceremony it brought tears to our eyes. For all of the planning that we had done up to that point, working with Sandy is what made the experience of getting married seem that much more “real”. I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you again Sandy for making our day so special.

Tess & Floyd –


Sandy was the perfect fit for our wedding. She was extremely flexible and helpful in helping us choose the ceremony that was right for us. She is confident, professional, reliable and helped us feel relaxed throughout the day and in the lead up to the day. All of our guests commented on how lovely the service was! We would highly recommend others to use Sandy for their ceremonies

Sandy made our wedding special. She was instrumental in helping us plan a ceremony that was authentic to our unique perspectives while maintaining a religious element that was equally important to our families. She made us feel comfortable throughout the planning process offering ideas and recommendations to ensure we had the perfect wedding day. Sandy took time to get to know us. Her interest in us as a couple conveyed how committed she was to the success of our marriage. When our wedding day finally came, having her bright spirit and smile at the end of the isle was a welcoming and relaxing sight to both of us! We would highly recommend Sandy as a wedding officiant – thank you for everything!

Hi Sandy,
Well, you were right, all the details came together & it was a perfect day!  The sun even came out for us on the beach, even though we were almost blown away, LOL. Thank you from both of us for doing such a wonderful service. Many guests expressed to us that they thought the ceremony was very beautiful! And everyone heard you just fine even through the wind.
Thank you again for making our moment so magical.

wedding party

It was an honor to have Sandy perform our wedding ceremony in November 2013. Sandy radiates kindness, compassion, and a passion of love. She was extremely thoughtful when helping us plan for our special day! My partner, Amanda, and I were unclear about what kind of ceremony we wanted to have and Sandy readily offered amazing suggestions and provided us with ceremony materials so that we could customize our wedding to be a reflection of our love. Sandy took the time to really listen and figure out what kind of ceremony would be a perfect fit for us. She included personal touches about our story that enriched the ceremony. Sandy was eager to travel for our ceremony even though she had an early flight to catch for Costa Rica the very next morning!

We were lucky enough to have Sandy help us create the most memorable day on not one, but two occasions! In 2014, when North Carolina lifted the marriage ban, Amanda and I knew immediately that we wanted to have Sandy officiate a ceremony in which we would be legally recognized by the state. Sandy enthusiastically agreed and worked with us to set a date that coincided with our one-year anniversary!

​On both of the biggest days of our lives, Sandy was there to listen, counsel and share our story! There are not enough words to express our gratitude! We look forward to planning our recommitment with Sandy in the future!
