Ann & Meadows wedding at the Naples Yacht Club was truly incredible. Not because of the venue or the decor or even the amazingly sunny day (which it was all of those things). It was the fact that they had well over 100 guests from all over not just the country but the world who came to celebrate their destination wedding in Naples, Florida.
They radiate love together and it comes back to them in abundance. It’s in the little ways we saw them care more for their guests than they did about themselves. The moment when Ann lovingly and comedically (so true to her character) gave her dad a brand new EMPTY wallet – as a thank you for their wedding – because she said “Well it’s empty because clearly you spent it all on this day!” :) And how Ann had her most favorite ice cream in the world flown in JUST so her guests could share in the deliciousness. (FYI -Graeters Ice Cream…mmm EPIC!) And the band – WHOA – don’t even know where to begin. Ann & Meadows had them come all the way from Atlanta just to entertain and they did NOT disappoint! There were so many things we loved about their wedding: Ann’s father had a love note stitched in his exact script to have attached into her dress, Meadow’s Aunt gave her a special “sixpence” for her shoe because all of the Carpenter women have worn one in their shoes on their wedding day, and their friends and family gave the most amazingly heartfelt and hilarious speeches and by the words spoken anyone would know how loving and loved these two are. They made us fall in love with them too.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Carpenter! We hope St. Lucia was amazing!!!
