Miss Sons and Mr. Smith unite in marriage February 8

Miss Amanda Sons, given in marriage by her parents, became the bride of Mr. Stephen Smith on Saturday afternoon, Feb. 8 at First Christian Church of Livingston. Rev. Michael Murphy officiated the double ring ceremony.

The bride is the daughter of Jimmie and Delores Drummen of Livingston and the granddaughter of Dimple Goin and the late Leslie Wayne Goin. She is the great granddaughter of the late Jay and Delie Ann Reels.

The groom is the son of Dale and Verrica Smith of Livingston and the grandson of Lucille and the late Carlos Ferrill and Magolene Choate. He is the great grandson of the late Mitchell and Ada Shaver and Everritt and Nara Ferrill.

As the guests were seated and during the ceremony, a program of recorded nuptial music was played. Included in the selections were "Unchained Melody" and "I Cross My Heart".

The groom also sang "Keeper Of The Stars" to his bride.

The unity candle was lit by the mothers, the bride, and the groom.

The altar was decorated with arch candelabra with white tapers. A large basket of calla lilies, lavendar roses, and patted greenery also enhanced the setting.

The bride, who was escorted to the altar by her father, wore a gown fashioned in bridal satin. The design was sleeveless with a scooped neckline and umpire waistline of soft pleats. The bodice was embellished with seed pearls and sequins, as was her chapel-length train.

Her tiered fingertip-length veil was fashioned of sheer silk illusion and cascaded from a headpiece of triple rows of pearls.

She carried a bouquet of white calla lilies, a large lavender rose, greenery, and seed pearls.

Serving as maid of honor was the bride's sister, Jenny Ledford. Bridesmaids were Crystal Sons, the bride's sister-in-law, and Bridget Reagan, a close friend of the bride.

Each wore a lavendar, sleeveless, street-length column dress.

Junior bridesmaids were Brittany Dyer, daughter of the bride, Sydney Smith, daughter of the groom, and Alyssa Sons, niece of the bride.

They wore pale pink dresses with white accessories. Each carried a nosegay of lavendar and white roses and pearls.

Flower girls were Stormi Lynn Smith, daughter of the groom, and Autumn Ledford, niece of the bride. Their dresses matched those of the junior bridesmaids, and they carried baskets filled with white rose petals.

Serving as best men were the groom's brother, Gregory Smith, and the bride's brother, Allen Sons. Ushers were Dale Smith and Jimmie Drummen. Each wore a black tuxedo and white shirt, with a lavendar rose boutonniere in their lapel.

Skyler Smith, son of the groom, served as ring bearer. He carried the rings on a satin pillow, decorated with satin ribbons and bows.

The bride's mother wore a navy blue model complimented with a corsage of pink and white roses and white accessories. The groom's mother also wore white accessories.

After the ceremony, the parents of the couple hosted a reception in the dining area of the church.

The bride's table was spread with a linen tablecloth and a lace overlay. Her three-tier cake, which was placed in the center of the table, was decorated with daisies, roses, and drop flowers.

Sparkling wedding punch was served from a crystal punch bowl. Also served to the guests were nuts and mints.

After a short wedding trip, the couple are making their home in Allons.
