Allison & Hunter {March Wedding at Carillon Beach}

Destination weddings are our specialty, so when we found at that the Atlantans who were planning their wedding with us were originally from Panama City, we were so excited!  In fact, Allison is the daughter of one of our very own Carillon Beach homeowners.  The family had a special connection with Carillon Beach, so their decision to get married here was not a hard one.  I loved getting to know Allison and her family.  Her beauty truly shined from the inside out.  Allison & Hunter’s laid back personalities helped to create a very nice, yet comfortable feel for her guests.  I look forward to their vacations from work and the McRight’s get to visit us in our office!


We went with a laid-back, yet elegant (like Allison!) look throughout the wedding. Her ceremony took a very timeless approach to a pink and green color palette. She opted to make the ceremony more formal when we chose to do elegant seat covers on the classic, wooden chairs. We also wanted to create visual interest at the front of the Meeting House to make use of the beautiful, high ceilings.

We just adored the way her father, Wes, beamed as he proudly walked Allison down the aisle. You should have seen him at the rehearsal... We were told to keep some tissues nearby 😉

What a beautiful couple! When the ladies at VUE Photography took Allison & Hunter for their sunset pictures, they found a great spot overlooking the lake!

Allison chose to go with the fabulous clear-top tent. It gives guests a sense of dining under the stars, without leaving them out in the elements. Her natural, garden greens and brown chiavari chairs were such a perfect look for the Village Green venue.

The more rustic-looking chandeliers gave the reception a touch of elegance, while keeping a laid-back feel. Her simple 5-tiered cake was not only beautiful, but it also tasted delicious! We love anything personalized. Allison and Hunter's complimenting toasting glasses to commemorate their big day were perfect!

Yum!! It's always nice to see when the grooms "sneak" an extra bite of cake! We know... it's irresistible! Look how those chandeliers sparkle in that clear-top tent!

A beautiful night view of the dining tent.

... their smiles say it all! Congrats Alli & Hunter! It was a beautiful evening.
