Sarah and Carter – April Carolina Inn Wedding

Sarah and Carter were married this past April at The Carolina Inn. I met them at a mutual friend’s birthday party and knew they were made for each other. Getting to know the two of them and to be able to help plan their wedding was such a pleasure. Morning showers didn’t stop this adorable couple from having their perfect day! We loved working with Sarah and Carter. You could feel the love they had for each other every time you were around them, especially on their big day : ) Martha Manning did a great job capturing their emotions. I just loved the look on Carter’s face every time he saw his gorgeous bride.

During their first look Sarah anxiously waited for Carter, nervously smiling. He finally showed up, tapped her on the shoulder and the moment Sarah turned around, both their faces lit up. As they hugged each other, you knew right then that this day was going to be special. From walking down the aisle to dancing the night away, Sarah and Carter were nothing but a joy to watch! Thank you, Sarah and Carter, for letting us be a part of their wedding and a big thanks for writing this review on WeddingWire!

Our wedding was on April 21, 2012 at the Carolina Inn. It was wonderful, due in large part to the efforts of Megan and her team. Without a doubt, hiring Megan was the best decision we made during the wedding planning process. She is highly organized, efficient and professional. Megan is incredibly well-networked and connected us to the best vendors; we were exceedingly happy with all of her recommendations. Megan reviewed our contracts, negotiated for the best deals and thought of details that never would have crossed my mind. Nearly all of our guests traveled to attend our wedding, including my immediate family. My parents and I were truly able to enjoy the weekend because Megan coordinated nearly everything that last week. I can’t overstate how valuable Megan’s services were.

Inkspot Crow did an amazing job filming the day. Check out Sarah and Carter’s film – guarantee you won’t stop smiling!
