Creative Oceanic are delighted to announce the finalists of The 1st North Carolina Wedding Awards 2020.

Hundreds of top wedding specialists and establishments that are eligible to be recognized for their impeccable work are expected to attend the prestigious gala to celebrate their achievements.

The North Carolina Wedding Awards aim to reward those within the eclectic wedding industry that make one of the most special days of our lives one to remember; whether they are caterers that provide delicious reception meals, decorators that take care of the wedding venues and give them that fairy-tale sparkle or DJs and bands that add the extra thrill to the atmosphere.

The Awards will also celebrate exceptional suppliers from a variety of industries that work their hardest to ensure that wow factor is present at every wedding they’re hired for.

They seek to recognize everyone in this sector that has shown excellence, commitment and have the customer satisfaction as top priority in their business.
