Mrs. Donna Glisson, aunt of the bride, directed the wedding and reception.

The chapel was decorated with greenery wreaths with baby’s breath and blush pink ribbons hung in each window with a candle on the window seal. The cross at the front was adorned with greenery, white hydrangeas and pink roses. The aisle was lined with plaques with the verse 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 on every other row, and beautiful light lanterns with baby’s breath and pink ribbons on top. In the front corners of the chapel there were arrangements of white hydrangeas and white calla lilies.

In the foyer of the chapel there was a registry table with a white globe with “Our Greatest Adventure” for every guest to sign in. Also, there was a vase with white carnations for every Chi O sorority sister to receive as she walked in. Above that table were pictures of the bride and groom.

On the other side of the foyer was an “In memory table,” featuring white calla lilies and white begonias. On this table were several pictures of family members with a sign that read, “We know you would be here today, if heaven were not so far away.”

Outside the chapel were beautiful hanging lanterns with baby’s breath on top on both sides of the steps leading up to the chapel.

Also, more beautiful white hydrangeas adorned the steps at the top.

On both doors, there were big wreaths covered with baby’s breath and a pink ribbon on top.

After the wedding there was a popcorn bar with nuts and candy served outside for the guests. Then there was a reception that was held inside the chapel.

As the D. J. got started, the wedding party was introduced and the couple danced their first slow dance, then only to break out in a surprise choreographed dance from the bride and groom.

After a wonderful meal and lots of dancing, the couple left going down the front steps of the chapel that was lined with guests holding sparklers on both sides.

The couple now resides in Warner Robins, Ga.
