Angela Dawn Carrier and Reggie Vernon Tiller were united in marriage August 4, 2018 in a wedding ceremony at Panama City Beach, Florida.
The bride is the daughter of Clarence Charles (Chuck) Carrier II and Elsie Jane Carrier of Bluff City, Tennessee. She is the granddaughter of Fannie Curtis and the late Robert Curtis of Piney Flats, Tennessee and Sherry Carrier and the late Clarence (Shorty) Carrier of Bluff City, Tennessee.
The bridegroom is the son of Dennie and Rita Tiller of Davenport, Virginia. He is the grandson of the late Vernon Tiller and Kate (Boyd) Tiller of Council, Virginia and the late Earl and Bess (Compton) Presley of Council, Virginia.
Amanda Nichols of Panama City Beach, Florida officiated and directed the wedding. The bride and groom participated in a "Blending of the Sands" Ceremony symbolizing their unity. The pouring of two different colored sands together was used to symbolize the joining of the bride and groom- forming one heart and one love.
The bride was dressed in a breathtaking A-line wedding gown from Essence of Australia. The plunging V-neckline was the focal point of the rich crepe bodice, complete with a flirty, double strap that extended into a geometric-inspired strappy back. The back of the wedding dress featured a slight train and zipped up beneath pearl buttons. Beginning at the waist, the French tulle skirt of the gown extended to the ground, adding a soft and light element to the design, making it perfect for the beach side ceremony.
In keeping with the beach theme, soft colors were chosen for the decor and the wedding party's attire. Her mother and father wore pastel pink. Her brother and his family wore pastel green and light coral. The groom and his father were dressed in matching azure blue shirts and his mother an azure blue dress.
Given in marriage by her parents, the bride was escorted down a winding sandy pathway by her father.
Upon their return from Panama City Beach, receptions were held in Knoxville and Bristol, Tennessee.
