Why hire a wedding planner for your Emerald Isle destination wedding

Get to Know your Wedding Planner

Krystal Duncan | Wedding Planner

Hi, I’m Krystal. I’ve been with Emerald Isle Realty and A Seaside Wedding + Events for 11 years now.  I’ve been lucky enough to help over 300 couples tie the knot in Emerald Isle and the surrounding areas.  I was born and raised right here in Emerald Isle on Cedar Street. When I say that I truly understand what you are going through, I do!  I got engaged and married within 6 months of each other in the middle of 2020 during a pandemic.  I want to help you every step of the way to make your wedding planning process as much fun as your wedding day is going to be.
