The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a beautiful Demetrios ball gown of white lace and satin.

The bodice featured a portrait neckline and basque waist.

The royal cathedral train was enhanced with lace inserts and a wide band that encircled the lace. Elaborate beading emphasized the pattern of the delicate lace on the bodice, skirt and train. Contrasting streams cascaded down the back of the train. She chose a double layer illusion veil.

Created by Personal Touch, the bride's bouquet was a cascading arrangement of "Classy" red roses enhanced with stephanotis blossoms filled with pearls. White dendrobium orchids from Hawaii outlined the beautiful red roses as well as lengthened the cascade. Each of the ten bridesmaids carried rich, brilliant colors of red, ashmeir gold, bronze, touches of purple, and yellow roses, hypercium berries and calla lilies. They were handheld into a nosegay and tied with a white chiffon ribbon.

The mothers had as wrist corsages, double cymbidium orchids and the grandmothers wore their orchids on their shoulders.

Groomsmen had Leonidas roses with hypercium berries. The large floral in the church was huge and towering with purple larkspur, many variety of roses, tall gladiolas and lissianthur.

The four arched candelabra in the church were handmade wrought iron arches with fifteen pillar candles each. Each candelabra was filled with asparagus fern, tiny white lights, and accented with a white bow flowing with white bridal tulle.

Two wrought iron spirals were at far ends of the altar that enveloped the entire bridal party.

The unity candle was filled with white Asiatic lilies and Virginia roses. It also was flowing in white tulle and ribbon.

The aisle was dressed from front to back in white tulle and white ribbon. At each tulle-puddled pew, a hidden light pin spotted each dressed pew.

Escorted by police motorcycles, the trolley carrying the bridal party arrived at the Alabama Activity Center for the reception. The bride's cake was a four- tiered confection of several flavors. One layer was a white scratch cake with Grand Marnier, cream cheese and almond filling while the other two layers were white with lemon filling and white with European raspberry.

Each layer was separated with gorgeous, colorful flowers as the bridesmaid's bouquets.

The cake sat upon a large silver plateau and the table was sprinkled with red rose petals.

The groom's cake was all about the groom's passion, which is music.

Special lamour musical linens were flown in to use on this tall-tiered platform that on each level had a tiramisu cake, which was enjoyed by all. Musical notes and statues surrounded the structure to enhance the table.

Mr. Joe Thomas, pianist, entertained the guests.

Following a honeymoon in Honolulu, Hawaii, the couple will reside in Birmingham where Stephanie will complete her Doctor of Pharmacy in the McWhorter School of Pharmacy at Samford University.
