Lauren & Carter {May Wedding at Carillon Beach}

With over a year of planning, Lauren & Carter were sure to have their dream wedding.  The Meeting House ceremony was simple and sweet.  It transitioned perfectly onto the Village Green to celebrate their reception.

Lauren chose to emphasize the beauty of the Meeting House.

Carter calmly loops his tie one last time as a single man.

Lauren and her bridesmaids all leave the "Boogie Board Inn" with the knowledge that the time has finally come!

Lauren chose to have both of her parents walk her down the aisle on her special day.

Paul & Mecheal Johnson (Paul Johnson Photography) captured that amazing moment when Carter first laid his eyes on his beautiful bride.

The peaceful and symbolic sand ceremony was accompanied by Carol Hayes's (Wedding Music Plus) beautiful solo violin music.

As a wonderful surprise to her husband, Lauren had a Scottish bagpiper play as they left the Meeting House. This was a special nod to Carter's Scottish heritage and studies in Scotland.

The couple chose a simple pole tent that had a great focus on the dance floor as well as the beautiful cake (Confections on the Coast).

Although the week leading up to their wedding was full of rain, Mr. & Mrs. Chism were able to enjoy their "just-in-case" umbrella as a decoration only.

Thankfully, with clear skies overhead, guests were able to make use of the hi-tops outside, lit by the cafe lights and the stars.

With a sweet kiss to her mother, Lauren & Carter were off!... Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Chism!
