The couple will wed 6 p.m. Saturday at First United Methodist Church in Union City. Music will begin at 5:30.
A bridal tea was held recently at the home of Elizabeth Kendall of Union City.
Guests registered at a lovely antique table covered with a delicate lace cloth. A photo of the bride and groom and a graceful arrangement of Casablanca lilies, peach hypericum berries, Gerbera daisies, green coffee beans, pink pixie carnations, light cream and green roses, and leather leaf was placed on the table.
The bride-elect wore a stunning sleeveless, coral design with shear, ruffled neckline and fitted waist. A strand of pearls and a dainty corsage of sweetheart roses, lime green buttons, and peach hypericum berries pinned at her shoulder completed her outfit.
Guests were served an assortment of foods in silver and crystal appointments on an antique dining table draped with a cut-work lace tablecloth and centered with a dramatic arrangement of lilies, hypericum berries, pixie carnations, bear grass, white wax flowers, light green buttons with salal leaves, honey bracelet and leather leaf in an heirloom soup tureen. Bridal netting was intertwined around the chandelier over the table and miniature bridal dolls and netting were placed strategically around the centerpiece. Cucumber sandwiches, chicken salad croissants, assorted fruits and dip, a bacon-cheese ring and mixed crackers, a vegetable tray and dips, chess squares, dainty white cake squares and wedding cookies were some of the delicious foods served along with beverages of sweet tea and pink strawberry punch.
Hostesses for the afternoon event were Pam Revell of Martin, Letha Reavis and Kim Roberson, both of Hombeak, Lisa Roney of Troy, Phyllis Powell of Rives, Jan Rankin of Union City and Ms. Kendall.
Miss Sedberry was presented with pieces from her outdoor entertainment selection.
