What a joy to have wedding celebration memories. Our six wedding couples for this issue share their smiles and special celebration details — lifting the veil of COVID and singing praise.
Francie Wienges, bride of Lukas Daniel, carried her grandmother’s emerald and gold cross attached to her bouquet and wore her mother’s wedding comb in her hair. The memory table was filled with white flowers in mint julep cups as an ode to grandfather Othniel Wienges, who raced horses for a living.
Anne Elise Goudelock and Davis Riddle were married under the very oak tree at DeBordieu where they got engaged on Father’s Day weekend last year. Sarah Hance and William Short met their junior year at Clemson and have many memories of their families together at Clemson. After a long-distance relationship, they now reside in Virginia and claim that the saying is true — Virginia is for lovers!
Jen Semans and John Hines enjoyed a wedding at Hilton Head Island where Jen’s family has vacationed since she was a child. It was where they took their first vacation together and will continue to be where they make their memories. Maggie Carter and Paul Amick were married in the front yard of her parents’ beautiful Heathwood home by Paul’s best friend, Blake Holloman, now a youth pastor. As the clock struck midnight, guests sported colorful wigs and glasses and were showered with confetti.
Mary Adele Smith and Gavin Fawcett were married at Magnolia Way/Fawcett Farms, a spectacular Southern venue where they will make many memories going forward with the Fawcett family!
So much to celebrate!
