Elizabeth & Josh {October Wedding at Carillon Beach}

Another gorgeous bride whose Meeting House ceremony and reception had a wonderful sense of intimacy and beauty.  Birmingham natives, Elizabeth & Josh entertained their guests and made them feel comfortable with their personal touches and simple decor.  When we met with them to plan their wedding, we decided on delicious parmesan grit martinis (YUM!) during their cocktail hour as they mingled with guests.  While they were mingling, we quickly transformed the Meeting House into a lovely reception.

Josh is a lucky guy! We adore these model-esque photos by Genya & Wesleyann!

Elizabeth's playfulness was captured as her bridesmaids giggled on the balcony! We love the colors here!

There was a fabulous array of urns and vessels to creatively display Elizabeth's flower arrangements! We decided that these would be perfect to bring out the height in the Meeting House window!... So simple and beautiful!

The adorable flower girls & ring bearer were a dream! They stood up throughout the ceremony as they watched Elizabeth & Josh exchange their vows.

As the guests were finishing up their cocktail hour, we took the newlyweds to their sunset pictures... you just cannot duplicate the breath-taking colors that a Florida sunset provides. Our beach walkovers are the perfect place to capture a sweet kiss.


When Josh & Elizabeth returned from the beach, they were able to see a transformed venue! Not only were their signature drinks served in mason jar glasses, but Rhonda's {Confections on the Coast} gorgeous cake was also out on display! The natural branches, along with elegant candlelight, were all the Meeting House needed to create Elizabeth's desired look!

The couple enjoyed their first dance to "I Will" as they were introduced as husband and wife.

We love that VUE Photography captured this intimate shot under the moon! Of course, the trees were lit for their lovely evening. The night was sweet and intimate... exactly what Elizabeth & Josh were hoping for!

    Absolutely GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS pictures!! Elizabeth, I know you probably don’t remember me, but YOU are the reason I had my fairytale/dream wedding @ Carillon as well! We were paired together last year to set up for a wine auction & you told me about Carillon, and my fiance/husband & I immediately researched it and fell in love with the place! Your pictures capture the exquisite beauty that is Carillon, and you were an absolutely breathtaking bride! CONGRATULATIONS!!
