Wedding Wednesday: The Carlin Wedding
The Carlin Wedding | June 27, 2015 | Photography by Dominion Images and Ananda Rochita
Beth and Jonathan were classic high school sweethearts that started dating after Jonathan asked Beth to their senior prom in 2006. It wasn’t until years later, though, that they became engaged when Jonathan proposed to Beth during Christmastime. It was a tradition to decorate the tree to celebrate the engagement of Jonathan’s parents every year since 1984. After the couple honored this traditions and decorated the Christmas Tree together, Jonathan surprised Beth with a ring in front of the entire Carlin family. She was more than thrilled to accept her high school love as her future husband.
The wedding was decorated with colors of gray and coral, with the coral to match Beth’s prom dress that she wore on their first date. One of the beers that Jonathan was served while picking out Beth’s ring was Squatch Ale and so the couple decided to have a keg of it on tap from the Chaos Mountain Brewing Company.
The ceremony and reception took place on the rooftop of Center in the Square, overlooking the city of Roanoke. For the day of the wedding, the forecast had called for rain, however, it didn’t start until the exact moment the wedding was scheduled to begin. Luckily for Beth and Jonathan, though, the rain passed by quickly and allowed for the sun to strike Beth as soon as she started down the staircase. This venue was really special for the couple because it offered an intimate outdoor setting with a modern feel as well as allowed for them to celebrate their love under the stars.
