Serving as Matron of Honor was Karoline G. Horton, sister of the bride. Bridesmaids were Katie S.

Flower girl was Baylee Barrow and Ring Bearers were Samuel and Brooks Horton, all escorted by their fathers, Adam Barrow and Tyler Horton. Bride's assistant was special friend, Molly Crowe.
Escorted by her father, the bride wore a gown by Australian designer "Made With Love." It had a classic look and feel with modern accents throughout. Exploded floral motifs showed an interesting take on lace, which were highlighted by the nude underlay of the dress. The sheer bodice made the coverage of the signature deep V- neckline look light and breezy. The addition of the gold and opal beaded belt gave the dress that extra touch of sparkle. The bridal bouquet was a mixture of cascading Quicksand and Leonidas roses, Anemone, Blue Thistle, Queen Anne's Lace, Gold Amaranthas, Plumosa Fern, Dusty Miller and Silver Dollar Eucalyptus.
The ceremony took place under a beautiful pecan tree on the 250 year old estate and was officiated by Mark Pugh. Following the ceremony, a candlelight southern seated dinner was hosted by the bride's parents. Guests danced the night away to the music of the Emerald Empire Band until lighting sparklers to see the couple off on a honeymoon to Mexico. The couple will reside in Kennesaw, Georgia.
