The rosette was centered with her grandmother’s rhinestone pin. The back bodice was accented with organza roses sprinkled with rhinestones and rhinestone buttons down the center back. The fitted skirt fishtailed into a chapel train with vertical organza ruffles cascading from the waist line topped with a satin bow to complete the back interest of the dress.

The couple honeymooned to Charleston, S.C. They are making their first home in Elkin where they have remodeled the groom’s great-grandparent’s home.
