There is something about people from Tennessee, maybe it’s because my grandmother was from there or maybe it’s the music…. but Mariah and Matt had literally one of the best receptions (and weddings) of all time. Mariah is beautiful and sweet and kind and Matt is a true gentleman who fell in love with Mariah immediately. They were married at Carillon Beach recently surrounded by a ton of of great friends and family who braved an outside wedding and reception in the steamy Florida summer heat . 😉
Their beach ceremony was lovely with a custom made arbor and seashell toss at the end. The reception was held on the Resort Green in Carillon Beach and was surrounded by palm trees, bristro lighting above and beautiful Lake Carillon in the background. An awesome dinner that included fried chicken and shrimp and grits was served and they even had a macaroni and cheese bar at the end of the night. Mari Darr Welch helped me photograph the ceremony and reception and Paul Kirker, of GTS Entertainment had Everyone dancing the night away to some of the best music I’ve EVER heard at a wedding reception. They had a bubble send off at the end and left for their honeymoon two days later. Congratulations Mariah and Matt!
