Kara + Matt - High Rock Lake Wedding

Although its been over a year ago since Kara & Matt were married,  its never too late to feature a gorgeous wedding!  Last year, I got somewhat behind on blogging and this year I've been playing catchup.  Either way, this wedding is not to be missed!

Kara and Matt celebrated their wedding at his family's beautiful High Rock Lake home. The weather couldn't of been any better with a light breeze & mild temps throughout the day. The ceremony was held under a natural wooden arbor, which Matt built, overlooking the lake as a backdrop. Matt's son was one of the ring bearers and played a big role in the day. During the ceremony the three of them together put a message in a bottle & sent it on its way in the lake.

The reception was set up on one side of the house with a view of the lake. Not one detail was overlooked when planning out Kara & Matt's big day. Tonya of Abba Design is amazing! Everything was beautifully decorated from the white cafe lights strung overhead at the reception to the gorgeous floral decor throughout.  Mercury glass vases, moss table numbers, and chalkboard signs were some of the fun details.

Shrimp & vegetable skewers were served as appetizers and for the main course, wood-fired pizzas made on site by the caterers. There was a dessert table set up with not only the wedding cake, but homemade pies, and cornbread cake to die for! A bar was set up with an assortment of chilled beer, wine, and soft drinks served in glass bottles with striped straws for sipping. At the request of Matt, Cheerwine was a must have - its his absolute favorite!

As this magical evening came to a close, Kara and Matt had a send off of sparklers by the guests who were lined along the dock. Kara and Matt departed on the awaiting pontoon boat with his dad at the wheel.  What great fun wedding this was!
