Wedding at the Arbor at the Port: Candace & Michael

On July 9th, 2021, Candace Holmes and Michael Carr joined one another in cherished matrimony at The Arbor at the Port.

There is no doubt at all that Michael and Candace are a wonderful and unique pair that complement one another perfectly. After having met on OkCupid!, they quickly fell into an easy stride together that seemed to be perfect for both of them. When asked when they knew that the other was “The One”, Candace says there really wasn’t a particular moment, and that they naturally fell into a wonderful, simple relationship that felt right for both of them.

Their engagement story is one for the books, too! The couple were vacationing in Las Vegas for Mike’s 35th birthday, along with his family, but little did Candace know there was about to be much more celebrating to do. She shared with us that on their first night there, they had just finished watching the world-famous fountain show at the Bellagio when a magician appeared and began showing them some tricks. He pulled a trick that involved a quarter, which he magically changed into a ring as Mike simultaneously dropped to one knee and popped the question! What a magical moment, indeed!

The natural ease of their relationship was apparent all throughout their ceremony and reception, with beautiful moments throughout including their wedding party blessing their rings. Another favorite detail were the cocktail napkins printed with five fun facts about the couple; such a unique idea! Candace recalls their special day as having been everything they could have hoped for! Following their matrimonials, the couple Honeymooned in Antigua and came home to begin their Happily Ever After!

Congratulations to Candace and Michael on a gorgeous wedding, and the start to a wonderful life together. We wish you love, happiness, and a lifetime full of magic!
