Heather & Kevin {April Wedding at Carillon Beach}

This sweet couple was such a dream to work with from start to finish.  Grant it, we had planned their wedding in less than two months, Heather knew exactly what she wanted and we just adored their Meeting House ceremony and reception.  With Kevin being in the military, they were working with a very limited time schedule, which was just fine by us.  We scheduled their vendor day the same day they toured the property, so everything was planned and ready to go by the end of the day!  Heather even had time to create adorable favors for each guest.  Their small, 28-guest wedding, was perfect to assign place cards for everyone.  The place cards were small, silver “love bird” bottle openers that everyone loved!

Our beautiful bride was completely laid back and relaxed throughout the entire process. It was certainly no different on her wedding day! She relaxed while she got her hair and makeup done at her Carillon rental home, “Four To Go.”

This sparkling beauty was created by Heather! She said that not only did it take a long time to find the “just right” brooches, but it also took days to put together! She wanted to start a new tradition in her family, so she left a few loose brooches to give to a few special little girls in her life. Both mothers were also presented with a brooch from her handmade bouquet!

Heather’s wonderful son, Cody, walked his mom down the aisle. It was a great story when I found out that he was passing up his Senior prom to go on a honeymoon-cruise with Heather & Kevin. His response was that he had “already been to prom for two years!” I loved their great relationship.

Kevin made sure that all of his favorite beers were at their wedding! During the planning process, Heather knew she wanted a “wishing tree” where all their guests could write a sweet note of encouragement and well-wishes for them! They chose to have a seated dinner that was simply amazing!

After their ceremony, the Meeting House was transformed with woodgrain tables and simple, white flowers. Heather opted to rent the mahogany chiavari chairs in place of the traditional wooden chairs that are normally in the Meeting House. Everyone was able to see the newlyweds as they danced their first dance.

Right before their sunset, we snuck Heather and Kevin away for their beach pictures.

One of the best part about the trees around the Village Green/Meeting House, is the beautiful lights! Once the sun goes down, it’s instant ambiance!
