The bride-elect is the daughter of the Rev. Reed and Debbie Buntin of Nashville. Her grandparents are James and Carolyn Hardwick of Arkabutla, Miss., and Reed and Ruth Buntin of Batesville, Miss. The groom is the son of Anitra Muse Hayre and the late Robert Willie “Bill” Muse of Troy. His grandparents are Jesse and Fern Livingston and Anna Mae Muse, all of Troy, and the late Robert Lee Muse.
The bride’s father performed the double-ring Christian ceremony.
The sanctuary was decorated with candles, fall foliage, ferns and wheat stalks, along with yellow mums at the front of the altar in memory of loves ones.
Sarah Aldy of Memphis and Addison Buntin of Batesville, cousins of the bride, attended the registry table, which was decorated with lace and candles.
Connie Haggard of College Grove played a selection of songs as guests were seated. Christopher Buntin of Nashville, brother of bride, sang “I Will Be Here” by Steven Curtis Chapman as Mark Caruth of Lebanon accompanied him on the piano and Hannah Alderson of Huntsville, Ala., interpreted the song through American Sign Language.
Carla Parker of Russellville, Ky., served as maid of honor and Candace Melloy of Paducah, Ky., served as matron of honor. Bridesmaids were Jessica Muse Pruyn of Nashville, sister of groom; and Alisha Tetreau of Lake Charles, La., Marla Stillwell of Elizabethtown, Ky., Rebekah Waterston of Shelbyville and Victoria McPherson of Brentwood. They wore long apple red, satin chiffon dresses with beaded empire waists.
Justin Preuett of Troy served as best man. Groomsmen were Seth Buntin and Christopher Buntin, both of Nashville, brothers of bride; and Nathaniel Kendall, Nick Dial and Travis Preuett, all of Troy, and Joshua Mathenia of McKenzie. They wore standard black tuxedoes with apple red vests and stripped ties. The groom wore a three-piece Calvin Klein tuxedo with an antique white shirt, vest and tie and black boots.
The bride wore her mother’s wedding dress. It was a capped sleeved, empire waist, antique white organza dress with chiffon overlay and lace appliqués. The veil was cathedral-length and was bordered with lace and deocrated with lace appliques to match the dress. She carried a bouquet of white roses and daises with her grandmother’s Bible attached to the streamers of the bouquet.
Hannah Alderson of Huntsville and Justin Lee of Fort Worth, Texas, interpreted the service through American Sign Language.
Jessica Hall of Owensboro, Ky., read scripture during the lighting of the Unity Candle.
A reception followed in the church fellowship hall.
The tables were covered with lace and decorated with tiered candles and fall accents.
The bride’s cake was a four-tiered square yellow cake with chocolate ganache filling and butter cream icing. It was decorated with fall flowers between each layer. Pecan pies were served from the groom’s table. Renee Marshall and Mallory Fergson, both of Murfreesboro, were the servers.
The bride presented her bouquet to the longest married couple — W.O. and Elenor Johnson of Triune who have been married for 65 years. Nathaniel Muse of Troy, brother of the groom, caught the garter.
The couple left the church to “At Last” by Etta James, while guests and the bridal party blew bubbles. They drove away in the groom’s truck with “Just Married” written on the back window.
The couple honeymooned in a cabin in the mountains of Gatlinburg.
A rehearsal dinner, catered by Anne Frank and June Harville, both of College Grove, was held at the church the day prior to the wedding.
The couple resides in Troy.
