Sarah Jane and Brad: A Carillon Beach Wedding

According to Sarah Jane, the first thing Brad said to her when they started planning the wedding was that he’d like to have sand in his toes while they said their vows. “We chose the beaches of the Emerald Coast, because it’s about an hour south of where my sweet mama grew up. I knew we would pick one of the communities on 30A for the ceremony and reception, but Carillon was the runaway pick! All it took was just one look at the Carillon Meeting House, with it’s whitewashed feel, exposed beams, and indoor merged with outdoor space and we were goners! The inclusion of darling Avis Glenister as wedding planner was the ultimate cherry on the sundae!! There isn’t much I haven’t relied on her to do, including sneaking out to the ceremony site a month before the wedding to bury the bourbon!”
