The bride carried a handtied bouquet of long-stemmed white calla lilies banded with white, double-faced satin ribbon.

Matron of honor was Whitney Adams Schilffarth of Lexington, Ky. She wore a strapless, side-ruched ballgown of apple-colored satin trimmed in a rhinestone brooch. She carried a bouquet of miniature flame calla lilies wrapped at the stems with apple-satin ribbon.

Flower girl was Emma Lee Barrett of Houston. She wore an ivory-satin dress created with spaghetti straps, a pick-up skirt and a beaded, apple-satin sash at the waist. She carried multicolored petals in a satin-covered basket.

The groom’s mother wore a two-piece, full-length dress of wisteria satin with embroidered details on the bodice. A jacket designed with three-quarter-length sleeves, a button front and matching embroidered details completed her ensemble.

Both mothers carried bouquets of ivory roses tied with sage-green, double-faced satin ribbon.
