Each month, our editorial team selects one spectacular wedding to highlight, one that stands above the rest for its uniqueness and beauty. 

This month, we’re showcasing Caroline and Carter’s whimsical garden party! Light pink, cream and pops of greenery mark these November nuptials.


How the Couple Met

As many modern love stories do, Caroline and Carter’s romance began on Hinge. Six months into her time on the app, Caroline was ready to call it quits. Upon opening up the app to delete her account, Caroline’s prince charming appeared.

“Carter was on Hinge for just a few days before we matched,” writes the bride. “We met up almost instantly and have been inseparable ever since!”

Though she had her moments of doubt, Caroline encourages others to keep at it and stay choosy.

“I was so picky that I even got a notification that there were no more men within my preferences,” she writes. “So be picky ladies, the right guy is out there. You just have to be patient!”

Caroline’s patience paid off. She and Carter married on November 4, 2023.


The Wedding Day

Caroline and Carter’s autumn wedding began with getting ready. The experts at Tease to Please Hair and Makeup beautified the bride and her maids. Caroline writes, “I loved getting ready with all my friends, it was like a big party! Everyone made me feel so special and loved.”

With help from her mom, Caroline slipped into her gown from Bridal Boutique before her and Carter’s first look. “I think it is super important for any bride and her fiance to just take a few minutes to themselves before the chaos ensues and just take it all in,” writes the bride. “Everyone says to always be present on the big day and that is so true!”

The couple said “I do” at The Gardenia Venue surrounded by natural light, white walls and beloved friends and family. After their ceremony, guests enjoyed drinks served up by HD Liquid Catering before dinner, speeches and plenty of dancing!

Thanks to Dana Jenson of Lovely Event Co., the day went smoothly, even after a morning mishap! “My seating chart had papers glued to it and all of the papers ended up flying off on the way to the venue,” writes Caroline. “Dana and Marissa spent a good chunk of the morning reprinting the papers and hot gluing all of them back on perfectly! They totally went above and beyond and I am still amazed with their selflessness.”


Caroline & Carter’s Favorite Moment

“I died when Carter and I got to see the venue space all decorated. The moment when you get to see all of your visions come to life is truly unforgettable!”
