Carly and Navon met online and instantly bonded over their shared love of March Madness and college football. Above all, when Navon was ready to propose, he wanted to make sure he got Carly’s parents’ approval. So, while they were all out to dinner one night, he waited until Carly excused herself from the table to ask for her hand in marriage. Not only did her parents approve, they also offered Navon her grandmother’s ring! He used the stone to design the perfect ring for his true love and when he presented it, she answered his question with a resounding yes.
These two Baltimore natives are just about the biggest Ravens fans you’ll ever meet. And so are their families. Naturally, they planned an awesome, Ravens-themed wedding, right in M&T Bank Stadium!
Carly was gorgeous in her classic lace ballgown and her bridesmaids, naturally, wore purple. Fandom never looked so good! Meanwhile, Navon and his groomsmen were dapper in gray suits with Ravens-pride purple ties. The happy couple exchanged vows flanked by two stunning floral arrangements. And after their first married kiss, Carly and Navon grabbed their wedding party for photo ops in the stands!
The reception decor featured shades of purple, violet and lavender accented by crystal and silver details. The tables were set with shimmering silver linens and deep violet napkins sat on silver chargers. At the same time, the head table featured a very special football centerpiece and guests had fun posing for photos by the Ravens logo step and repeat. The perfect photo booth for true fans in true love! After dinner, the newlyweds cut their Ravens themed cake before dancing the night away with their guests. Congratulations Carly and Navon!
