Haylee Carver and Dustin Johnson were united in marriage in a private ceremony on Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013, at The Lake House of Bulow in Charleston, S.C. The Rev. Tony Duncan officiated the double-ring exchange of vows.
The bride is the daughter of Danny and Nannette Carver of Johnson City. She is the granddaughter of Ms. Faye Perry of Hampton and the late Edgar “Sonny” Perry Jr., and Ms. Freda Carver of Gray and the late Fred Carver.
The groom is the son of Ms. Sandy Oliver of Elizabethton and Dallas Johnson of Georgia. He is the grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Buck of Elizabethton, the late George Hoover Oliver and Ms. Dolly McCall of Johnson City.
The couple chose a natural themed wedding and were married on the island connected to the Lake House by a foot bridge.
The bride was given in marriage by her parents and escorted to the altar by her father. The bride chose an Allure antique lace strapless slim-fitted gown featuring a sweetheart neckline and soft lace asymmetrical ruching and embroidered lace appliques falling to a full bottom with a modest train.
She carried a bouquet of roses in the shades of burnt orange, yellow and deep ivory.
Hannah Banks Johnson, sister-in-law of the groom, was matron of honor. Whitney Jarrett Story, friend of the bride, served as bridesmaid. The attendants were dressed identically, wearing a long sleeveless navy dress with a sheer overlay. Their bouquets were miniature replicas of the bride’s.
David Johnson served his twin brother as best man. Jamison Evans, cousin of the groom, served as groomsman. The groomsmen were dressed in khaki pants and navy vests with navy and khaki ties.
Immediately following the ceremony a reception dinner was held on the grounds of the Lake House.
After a honeymoon at Folly Beach and Charleston, S.C., the couple celebrated with a reception here, held at Watauga Point United Methodist Church.
They are now residing in Elizabethton.
