Claire & Trey {April Wedding at Carillon Beach}

Claire and Trey at Carillon Beach

Claire was such a gorgeous bride! She chose to have 2 beautiful gardenias tucked in her hair. It was the perfect Southern touch to her bridal attire.

Southern touches from head to toe! The peonies were absolutely to die for throughout April! We just loved Claire’s ruffles completely covering her dress! Flowy and romantic are two words to describe this gorgeous bridal gown.

The Meeting House was perfectly adorned with a wooden cross and giant urns with cherry blossom branches that were later transferred to the reception. The wooden cross that was hung above the windows had a strand of small white tea roses that was in loving memory of their grandparents and loved ones who had passed.  This was a sweet addition that Claire & Trey wanted to have simply recognized in their programs.

I LOVED the story of her rings! Trey had taken parts from both of his grandparents’ rings to create Claire’s gorgeous setting. It was so unique and gorgeous. I’m such a fan of sentimental rings like this! She will truly treasure this one day as an heirloom piece! Trey even had the gold melted down, then plated it in Platinum for his beautiful bride!

I adored her girly, pink cake with hundreds of little flowers everywhere! Yummy!

Sweet Southern charm. I was happy to have helped her with her escort cards and complimenting menu cards. “The menus brought the whole look together and just added a special touch to the table setting,” her mother {Donna} remarked.

How fabulous were the hanging arrangements?! Select tables had floating centerpieces that have a light, garden-feel to the blue and white tent. The flowers were Candy Bianca Roses (pale-pink), white and pale pink hydrangeas, pale blush stock, white rose and esperence roses. They were perfect!

The week before the wedding, Claire’s mother was able to have these made to accent their chairs at their sweetheart table.

The newlyweds were able to sit back and relax to the music of their Jazz Band and enjoy each other’s company.  From the start, they both claimed that they did not have a group that danced much, so we accommodated this by having a smaller dance floor and wonderful jazzy music to have for background entertainment.  The plus side of having a sweetheart table is having intimate time during your reception with your… sweetheart!

Perfect ending to a perfect night! After dinner and cake, the Jinright’s were ready to head back and get changed for a longer night of partying!

They arranged for this vintage convertible to whisk them away for the evening! Congratulations Claire & Trey! From the looks of the pictures they sent us on their honeymoon, they were having a fabulous time celebrating their new marriage!
