The landmarks of downtown Baton Rouge, Louisiana, inspired the wedding between Dawn Carrier (26 and a project manager) and Carson Narcomey (30 and a field engineer). “Carson and I wanted a very memorable wedding that was personable,” Dawn says of her day, which used notes of navy, gold and silver. The Louisiana Capitol was in the background for the ceremony in Capitol Park, while the rooftop reception showcased the sweeping views of the old Capitol and the Mississippi River. The museum’s modern structures were softened by dark wood chiavari chairs and flowers. Dawn and Carson met in the same city while in a computer science class at Louisiana State University. She sent him a Facebook message to ask a question about a test she already knew the answer to and they hit it off from there. She went to visit him in his hometown in Oklahoma, and he popped the question in one of his favorite places. He then gave her a bouquet of peonies, which she also used in her wedding day. Dawn wore a layered, beaded gown with varying shades of white and tan, while her bridesmaids wore white Joanna August floor-length gowns in white. Carson wore a navy blue custom-made tuxedo. For the reception, festivities moved to the Shaw Center for the Arts to their terrace. “The terrace overlooks the Mississippi River, which was great for sunsets and our fireworks show.” White chairs and couches made the space feel cozier. Guests dined on Southern favorites like fried catfish and shrimp and grits. After their first dance to “I’ll Be Here for You” by Randy Rogers, they did a money dance, in which guests could give them well wishes and money for the honeymoon. Fireworks lit up the river in a surprise ending before the couple left to sparklers held by loved ones. Carson had the best advice for other couples: “Don’t take yourselves too seriously, and love often. Life is a great thing and can be even better with a kick-ass wife.” —Caroline Eubanks
