Vows were exchanged under a white gazebo adorned with a bouquet of lavender and purple flowers.

The bride’s mother was seated to Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me.” Bridesmaids entered to Pachelbel’s “Canon in D,” followed by Wagner’s “Bridal Chorus” for the bride’s entrance. The recessional was “From This Moment” by Shania Twain.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore an ivory gown created with a fitted bodice and a gathered chiffon overlay. Crystals and pearl-beading adorned the neckline and spaghetti straps and created an asymmetrical pattern across the bodice to the gathered side.

Her ivory, fingertip-length veil, borrowed from her sister-in-law, was edged in satin trim.

She carried a bouquet featuring lavender and purple alstroemerias, roses, hydrangeas, mums, lisanthus, aster and dahlias.

Matron of honor was Jennifer Aldrette, sister of the bride, of Davis, Calif. She wore a strapless, floor-length gown of Victorian lilac with side-ruching fastened in a rhinestone brooch. She carried a nosegay featuring the same flowers as those carried by the bride.

Bridesmaids were Lauren Marshall and Logan Marshall, daughters of the groom, of Vicksburg. Their gowns were identical in design to the dress worn by the matron of honor and were created in a lilac-colored fabric. They each carried handtied bouquets of matching flowers.

Bert Carraway of Flowood served as best man.

The bride’s mother wore a formal, two-piece ensemble of silk ombre chiffon featuring a sleeveless tiered gown trimmed in beads and a matching, cardigan-style jacket. She wore a wristlet of white flowers with silver accents.

A reception followed in the banquet hall of the golf course.

Arrangements of lavender and purple alstroemeria lilies, roses, hydrangeas, mums, lisanthus, aster and dahlias adorned the tables, which were also sprinkled with lavender rose petals and purple and silver Hershey’s kisses.

The three-tiered wedding cake was created with alternating fillings in each layer: white with strawberry and chocolate with vanilla custard. Each tier was iced in buttercream and topped with fresh lavender and purple flowers.

Guests were treated to a buffet of chicken, salmon, assorted vegetables, salads and a beef carving station.

For a wedding trip, the couple traveled to Tennessee.

They will make their home in Vicksburg. The bride is an autism program teacher at Beechwood Elementary, and the groom is employed with the Warren County Sheriff’s Department.
