Miss Barnard And Mr. Bowman Exchange Vows
Amy Lavone Barnard, given in marriage by her family, became the
bride of Todd Jason Bowman Saturday, October 14, 2000, at Gatlinburg's
Chapel at the Park. Reverend Lee K. Bennett officiated the 5 p.m.
ceremony. The couple spoke their vows before a close gathering of
relatives and friends during the ceremony.
The bride is the daughter of Ms. Janice Murdock of Livingston and
the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bob Murdock of Allons and the
late Jane Barnard.
The groom is the son of Steve and Brenda Bowman of Allons and
the grandson of Mrs. Emogene Pryor of Allons, the late Doak Fletcher,
and Bonnie, Jr. and Viola Bowman.
For the occasion, arched candelabra, flanked by spiral candelabras,
all entwined with flowers and greenery, illuminated the chapel.
A unity candle, potted greenery, and multi-colored floral arrangements
marking the pews completed the setting.
Musical selections for the ceremony included the traditional "Wedding
March", along with "Amazed" and other selections.
Given in marriage by her family, the bride approached the altar
on the arm of her grandfather Murdock. She was radiant in a formal-length
gown fashioned in white satin and enhanced with a fitted waistline.
The scalloped neckline and short sleeves were embellished with heavily
beaded lace and the gown was fastened at the back with delicate
satin-covered buttons. The elegant skirt draped in gentle gathers
from the fitted waist, and a scalloped hemline adorned with lace
insets further enhanced the creation. The lace insets were also
used to embellish the cathedral length train. Her chapel-length
veil was attached to a bandeau of lace encrusted with pearls. The
sheer netting cascaded in two layers down her back and was accented
with a border of white satin.
She carried a bouquet of yellow and white daisies, yellow roses
and purple asters nestled in greenery and fastened with sheer netting.
In addition to her engagement ring, the bride wore a pearl and
diamond pendant attached to a gold chain and matching pearl and
diamond earrings, presented to her as a special gift from her maternal
grandmother, Mrs. Murdock.
Serving as matron of honor was April Cole of the Willow Grove Community.
The honor attendant wore a formal-length gown fashioned of periwinkle
blue satin and styled with a princess waistline and thin straps
at the shoulders. Her bouquet was a miniature of the bride's flowers.
Brinna Bowman, niece of the groom, served as flower girl. She
wore a white satin frock designed with full elbow-length sleeves
and a dropped waistline, which held the gathered skirt. White bows
centered with miniature pink flowers enhanced the sleeves and were
placed on each side of the neckline. The yolk was embellished with
lace, and she wore a band of lace in her hair. She carried a white
wicker basket filled with white rose petals.
The groom and best man, Jason Turner of Monroe, wore black tuxedos.
Each had a white rose boutonniere in his lapel.
Following the ceremony, the couple departed the chapel riding in
a Rolls Royce destined for a Gatlinburg chalet, where they spent
