Bridal Sign Up

Carolyn Dix & Evan Remer

February 7, 2015 | Ceremony & reception: The Foundry at Puritan Mill

Carolyn wore a gown by Alvina Valenta, purchased at Ivy Bridal Studio, with a veil borrowed from her sister, and the groom sourced his tuxedo from the bride’s online tuxedo rental company, Menguin.

 

The bride’s ivory satin d’Orsay pumps from the Blue by Betsey Johnson collection featured a crystal bow and blue soles.

Planner Ashley Baber suspended chandeliers to set an elegant mood.

Bride and groom cake toppers gave a nod to the groom’s alma mater, The University of Texas.

THE COUPLE
After meeting while both volunteering at the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival and a first date at the High Museum of Art, Nationwise Management Associate Evan Remer later proposed to CBO (Chief Bridal Officer) for Menguin Online Tuxedo Rental Carolyn Dix in the museum’s gallery. 

THE PARTY
Guests were greeted with “shots” of hot chocolate at the door to warm them on the winter’s night. Chandeliers suspended from the ceiling cast a glow over the space dressed in hues of peach, grey, white and yellow. A chocolate and candy bar fueled the lively crowd as groomsmen performed a dance routine to The Rupert’s Orchestra’s version of “Uptown Funk” for the bride. In lieu of favors,the charitable couple sponsored a kennel for a year at the Humane Society shelter in Indiana, where they adopted their beloved terrier mix, Sammie.

WHAT WE LEARNED
“Have wedding vendors you truly love and will like being around on your wedding day,” says Carolyn. “We were so calm on our wedding day, and a big part of that was the people we surrounded ourselves with.”

THE HONEYMOON
“We’re still figuring that out,” the bride says. “Probably somewhere in South America so Evan can impress me with his Spanish.”
