When Carter and Erin met during freshman year at Mississippi State, it was love at first sight - almost. Carter’s friend ended up with Erin’s number after that first meeting, but Carter snagged it from him to ask her out… and after that, the rest was history. Here are Carter’s words about their journey to falling in love: “For our first date, I took her to the nicest place I could think of: Chili’s. We fell in love over Chili's Molten Lava Cake. That year, we spent so much time together that my college buddy made me sign an agreement to not have a girlfriend until after Christmas break. But I only made it until October 28th, 2010 before asking Erin to be my girlfriend.”
October 28th, 2017 was pretty special, too. Their dating anniversary became their wedding day, and it was filled with countless moments that felt just like Carter and Erin - classic, but trendy; romantic, but with plenty of laughter stirred in. They chose a simple color palette at the gorgeous Graystone Quarry. The day was unusually cold, but the ceremony was filled with the warmth of family, from an uncle officiating the ceremony to a cousin singing as Erin walked down the aisle. Music held some of the most precious moments for Carter and Erin - their favorite memories from the wedding include How Great Thou Art being sung during the processional, and their first dance to the romantic La Vie en Rose by Louis Armstrong.
After seeing one of Matt G’s videos, Carter and Erin knew they wanted us to capture their special day, and we were honored to be a part of this classic romance. From the first look to the final wave, every moment was full of meaning. Carter and Erin were sent off to their honeymoon with a special surprise fireworks display - we think it was the perfect lighting to send them into their happily ever after.
