When we met Hilary for the first time we knew her wedding was going to be incredible. She and Brad have a sweet love story that spans over a decade, and it was going to be so exciting to celebrate the start of their marriage with them. They wanted a destination wedding in the 30A area, she wanted a glamorous, feminine style, and they wanted to truly celebrate with their large families and all of their friends. Check, check, check!
After spending a day in Florida touring venues, we landed on Carillon Beach, a gem of a beach resort perfect for the weekend experience Hilary and Brad were looking for. We loved it because it was the perfect blank canvas to bring in a lot of feminine blush tones and a little bit of glamour! There were so many details we loved about this wedding day: Hilary walking down the aisle with her mother, the personal and heartfelt vows that Hilary and Brad wrote to each other, the incredible dance floor installation featuring stunning drapery and a huge crystal chandelier, kicking off the celebration with a champagne tower pour, Hilary and Brad’s epic first dance with cold sparks, the blush velvet lounge furniture, and so much more. But most importantly we loved how much absolute joy there was. Right before the ceremony we walked into the bride’s house and she was surrounded by approximately 40 of her closest friends and they were belting out “going to the chapel.” It was such a sweet and celebratory moment before all the festivities truly began. Hilary and Brad are surrounded by the biggest, sweetest family and friends and it was incredibly special to witness.
Hilary and Brad (and Sherry!), it was an honor working with you guys on such an incredibly special day! We know you guys are going to do amazing things together and we are so excited to continue to cheer you on in your marriage! Thank you for allowing us to work with your family on such a beautiful and heartfelt wedding day!
