The Wedding Party

The wedding party consists of eight bridesmaids, eight groomsmen, seven flower girls, and two ring bearers. The bridesmaids all wore long orange dresses with tan-colored heels. The groomsmen wore navy-colored suits with navy ties, orange pocket squares, and light brown shoes.  The flower girls all wore matching white dresses with sequin tops and tulle bottoms. The ring bearers wore a white dress shirt with a navy vest, an orange bow tie, navy pants, a navy flat cap, and brown shoes.

Pre Ceremony

Carley was surrounded by her best friends and mom while getting ready for her big day. She got her hair and makeup done with her hair half up and curled. She then stepped into her elegant white lace gown, while her bridesmaids wore long, bright red gowns.

After Carley was done getting ready, she showed her dad and brother a glimpse of her gorgeous dress! Thomas got ready with his groomsmen and he was ready to see his bride walk down the aisle!

The Ceremony

When the ceremony was set to start the groom took his place at the front. Two by two the bridesmaids and groomsmen made their way down the aisle. Next, the dashing ring bearers and adorable flower girls found their way to the front. Finally, the bride appeared, escorted by her father they walked down the aisle together. Once they were at the front, Carley’s father gave her to Thomas and the ceremony began. The couple said their vows, exchanged rings and made things official with a kiss!


Carley + Thomas opted for rustic, but elegant decor for their barn-themed wedding! This venue’s ambiance setting with gorgeous natural lighting made Carley + Thomas’ wedding one to remember!

There were floral arrangements all around and these decorations surrounded every table with gorgeous candle arrangements and even had a card and gift setup, making the color scheme really pop. Also, the ceilings had chandeliers making it look more elegant and chic, which is what Carley + Thomas wanted to incorporate, which looked absolutely perfect.
