Details were important to my bride Allison and her groom Dustin.  They put a lot of thought into their ceremony and reception at the Carrick House.  As her dedicated planner, even from her out-of-town location, we were able to pull together everything for her with ease….everything from the order of her ceremony to the details of her flowers.   These are some of our most favorite details from their big day (pictures by Cydil Waggoner…she is amazing!)


Guests settle in for the ceremony on the front lawn of the Carrick House while the string trio plays.

They see each other for the first time!

What a great looking wedding party. I love ceremonies on the front steps!

During the cocktail hour, guests picked up their place card, signed the barrel heads (in lieu of guestbook) and tried fabulous hors by Lundys.

Then the ballroom for dinner and dancing was revealed....WOW....(all flowers and design were by our team at Great Expectations). We love seeing all the details come together!

Allison and Dustin invested in private dance lessons to learn their first dance. I recommend this to all couples. What better gift to your future life together than to wow onlookers both now and later with your dance skills as a couple. Worth every penny!

This crowd loved the 11 piece band from Cincinnati called "Second Wind". The dance floor was packed all night long! One of the best new bands I've heard this year!

At the end of the night, we sent them off in style via sparklers and vintage Bentley! What an amazing couple.
