Dana & Nick {September Wedding at Carillon Beach}

A wonderfully sweet, Georgia couple were destined to get married in an intimate setting.  The Carillon Beach Meeting House was a perfect match for Dana and Nick.  Dana’s family owns a home in nearby, Rosemary Beach, but Carillon had just what they were looking for… a quiet location with beautiful scenery.  The soft hues and Dana’s romantic dress added to the magic of the evening.

Jenny, Dana’s wonderful mom, was just beaming with joy! Dana & Jenny were such a wonderful pair while we went through the planning process. When the day finally came, you could just see the excitement in both of their faces.

After the ceremony was over, the guests enjoyed the cocktail hour outside on the side decks. The weather was perfect for an outdoor cocktail hour! For the reception, we decided to play up the natural beauty and simplicity of the Meeting House. A pretty, neutral linen and tall arrangements helped to create a very clean, organic feel.

I love this image of the bridal party in front of The Carillon. {tidbit of knowledge}: carillon n. A stationary set of chromatically tuned bells in a tower, usually played from a keyboard. This is our Carillon… The center of the community.

Although Dana had the Wedding Music Plus trio perform from the prelude, to the ceremony, to the cocktail hour and even through dinner, Dana wanted to have her first dance with Nick to Train’s “Marry Me.”

With perfect weather, the guests were able to enjoy their dinners outside. It was pretty when the sun set and the lights on the trees transformed the entire outdoors atmosphere into something magical!
