Entering the sanctuary, the bride was a picture of radiance wearing a gown with a beautiful sweetheart illusion neckline with unique lace embellished cap sleeves, which highlighted the cotton lace A-line gown. The lace was rich in color and was accented by a detachable tan gorgerin ribbon belt.

The bride’s veil was fingertip length, two-tiered organza flowing from a jewel comb. Covered lace buttons accented the back of the wedding gown, which flowed, gracefully into a chapel length train.

A reception followed at the Norton Building. The bride’s cake was designed, created and served by Nancy Whittenburg.

Fresh garlands of delicate green leaves encircled each tier. A monogram crowned the cake’s top. This confection was presented atop a rough-hewn wooden base.

An unusual creation was chosen to honor the groom.
