The registry table was decorated with an antique white crocheted tablecloth, overlaid with a silk taffeta blue scarf with sparkling beads and two large candle sticks with blue candles. A photo card of the couple was given to the guests as they signed the registry, which was attended by Mary Ann Wilson of Mayfield, cousin of the bride.
The church platform was lined with draping white, blue and gold tulle and greenery with white roses and ivy leaves. Tea-light candles were lighted and placed along the edge of the choir banister and white lighting was also placed under the draping tulle.
Two large candelabra adorned with white bows and sparkling crystal hearts were placed on the second platform. Two eight-foot columns in the center were joined with a floral arrangement of blue and white roses, baby’s breath and greenery. In front of the columns, a brass heart-shaped candelabrum was placed on the outer steps of the staging area, where two four-foot columns were placed holding large Boston ferns.
Songs were sung by Kayla Lindsey of South Fulton, cousin of the bride. The songs “Valentine” by Martina McBride, “No Place That Far” by Sara Evans and “From This Moment” by Shania Twain were chosen for the ceremony.
