The doors to the church were adorned with swags of white hydrangeas, misty and assorted greenery caught with cream ribbon. The path to the altar was marked with bouquets of white hydrangeas, misty and Italian ruscus bound with a cream-colored ribbon. Large urns topped the altar, which were filled with white hydrangeas, misty, Italian ruscus and various white flowers and greenery.

A program of nuptial music was presented by Karen Harrison, organist. The seating of mothers and grandmothers was followed by a performance of “Ave Maria” by Marcia Weaver, soloist. The wedding party entered to “Canon in D.” “Trumpet Voluntary” was played for the bride’s entrance. “The Lord’s Prayer” was sung for the lighting of the unity candle. The recessional was “The Wedding March.”

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore an exquisite gown of natural silk shantung. The bodice was strapless, with a fitted mermaid torso with elegant ruching throughout. Covered buttons accented the zippered back and flowed into a semi-chapel train.

She carried a handtied, satin-wrapped bouquet of white roses, lisanthus, dendrobium orchids, sweetpea, Italian ruscus, seeded eucalyptus, variegated pittosporum and hypericum. Embracing the bouquet was a handkerchief passed on to the bride by her sorority sisters.

Matron of honor was Nikki Nelson Smith of Huntsville, Ala. Maid of honor was Johanna Magee Wilson of Vicksburg. Bridesmaids were Storey Willoughby Ring of Huntsville, Lindsey Nosser Dornbusch of Vicksburg, Kristine Debenport Kaigler of Gulfport and Elizabeth Floyd Long of Atlanta.

The attendants wore strapless, tea-length dresses of wisteria jolie satin with a tucked midriff that appeared to tie. They each carried bouquets of hydrangeas, freesia, hyacinths, hypericum and baronia.

Robert Oxford of Rosedale, Ind., served as best man. Groomsmen were Frederick Creasey of West Terre Haute, Ind.; Thomas Creasey of Marshall, Ill.; Jeremy Kennedy of Fort Wayne, Ind.; Gary Oxford of Terre Haute; and John Williamson of Orland Park, Ill.

Scripture readers were Richard and Judy Lambert, uncle and aunt of the bride, and Teresa Myers, sister of the groom. Program attendants were Ellen McCaa and Lauren Taylor.

Special wedding assistant was Connie Hosemann. Jordan Bell served as the bride’s proxy.

The bride’s mother wore a three-piece suit of periwinkle-blue silk featuring a beaded, lace skirt.

The groom’s mother wore a two-piece, floor-length dress of cream chiffon embellished on the bodice with beaded accents.

Both mothers carried petite nosegays of hydrangeas, baronia, seeded eucalyptus, bear grass and variegated pittosporum.

A reception followed at the B’nai B’rith Literary Club.

The entrance was adorned with grapevine garland, sheer ribbon, hydrangeas and greenery. The doors held a pair of white Cs. Macho ferns filled outside urns along the patio.

Macho ferns and assorted spring flowers adorned the foyer. A bridal portrait was displayed on an easel.

Windows along the stairway leading to the ballroom held greenery, hurricanes and pillar candles. Ballroom windows were decorated with alstroemeria lily topiaries and greenery.

Centering the food table was an urn of various spring flowers. Each table contained hydrangeas and bear grass in round or pedestal bowls.

The six-tiered wedding cake featured alternating layers of fresh strawberry French-meringue buttercream and vanilla French meringue. Each tier of the confection, iced in off-white buttercream, was garnished in a band of rolled fondant ribbon in varying tones of frosting. Small hydrangeas adorned the cake, and the table was decorated with greenery, the bride’s bouquet and the bridesmaids’ nosegays. Bridal pulls were placed beneath the cake and were bound by white ribbons.

The groom’s three-tiered, all-butter chocolate cake was filled with fresh strawberry French-meringue buttercream and frosted with chocolate buttercream icing. Topping the confection was a chocolate glacage garnished with the groom’s initial C in hand-dipped chocolate. Chocolate-covered strawberries completed the cake.
