One of my daughters is getting married next month and I was looking up in Wilmington for a rental company for a tent, chairs, tables, and such. Then last week, right under my nose … I passed a billboard for , located in Southport/Oak Island. They’ve been here since 2007 but I missed them somehow.

Brunswick County has become very popular for destination weddings so I wanted to let people know that we have a full-service rental company for weddings, special events, and parties right here in Southport.

is owned and operated by David Wallace and Andy Beacham. I met with David this week and saw his full line of rental goods in one of his two locations on Long Beach Road. From tents, to tables and chairs, to glassware, and tableware, he has everything you need. They cover all of Brunswick County, including Bald Head Island so if you are in need of their services, they can deliver. Here is a of what they offer. David is top-notch and quite a personable fellow. You can or call him at 910.448.1002.
