Jaclyn & Jerry {November Wedding at Carillon Beach}

After coordinating her little sister, Allison’s wedding back in March, we couldn’t wait to start the planning process with Jaclyn!  Two Pittman-weddings in one year?!  We LOVED it!  This gave us such a wonderful opportunity to work with the same family we had grown to adore.  Not many planners can say that!  It was great to see some familiar faces amongst the guests as well.  The best part of planning two sister’s weddings in one year is that we could compare just how different their styles were.  While Allison is very elegant, laid back and casual, Jaclyn’s wedding, like her personality, was a bit more ornate, glamorous & girly. 🙂  She wanted lots of flowers and a huge chandelier in the middle of her dance floor.  The entertainment even ended up being multi-faceted!  She had a classical string quartet to welcome the guests to the cocktail hour, a casual band for dining, then a more r&b/hip-hop band for the evening set (perfect for the younger, dancing crowd)!  Peruse and enjoy looking through Alli’s beautiful wedding, then compare it to Jaclyn’s wedding!  These two show you just how personalized and different our weddings are for each bride.

What a breath-taking image! For being a bit camera shy, Jaclyn photographs so well! Because Rae Leytham was expecting her twins right around the corner, there were some additional photographers to make sure every inch was covered! Check out their credits!

Jaclyn chose to have all of the Meeting House chairs removed and replaced with beautiful gold chiavari chairs. Her entire wedding was furnished with these gorgeous chairs. Large arrangements in the window brought a fabulous pop of color to the ceremony.

This was the proud daddy’s last walk down the Meeting House aisle to give his final daughter away. This Fall ceremony was beautiful as the sun started to set through the Meeting House windows.

An indescribable moment as Wes gives Jaclyn away.

A formal-attire event, Jaclyn set the tone by using timeless colors and rich fabrics.

Clear skies and no sand on their toes! Jaclyn and Jerry chose not to go down to the beach for sunset pictures, but that surely did not stop the photographers from capturing some fantastic shots!

Pretty little details! As favors, there were boxes of “bride” and “groom” truffles in every box. We decided that the escort cards would look displayed the best among the sea of truffles! Townsend Catering offered another full and delicious menu for their guests!

Unlike Allison’s wedding, Jaclyn chose to have a seated buffet. This means that their guests got all of the choices of a buffet, but the formality of a table setting. The glassware was special-ordered so that the tables looked exactly how Jaclyn imagined them.

Jaclyn revived the classic look of a fully-lined tent; something we don’t see often in Carillon.  It was gorgeous and created this wonderful ballroom-feel, while being outdoors and in a tent.

The Lanier’s first dance as a married couple was to Van Morrison’s “Crazy Love.” Isn’t that a great looking head table across the back?

A truly gorgeous and intricate cake! Jaclyn surprised us when she picked out a cake she liked from Rhonda’s books… and it was Allison’s! Rhonda took Alli’s dots as inspiration and created an intricately detailed work of art! I think Rae Leytham photography take some of the best cake pictures I’ve ever seen!

Daddy’s little girls! It was so fun for us to see this family of Carillon brides enjoying themselves twice in one year!

Their getaway car was a vintage Thunderbird that was borrowed to them by a close friend of the family. That’s certainly the way to end your night in style! Congrats, Jaclyn & Jerry!!
