Jessica Horton and Bryant Quick finally did it! They were married on Saturday, May 14th at 11am on the front lawn of the historic and beautiful St. Simons Island Lighthouse and Gazebo before their closest friends and relatives.
Jessica was Cinderella and Bryant was Prince Charming. She slipped into her wedding gown and glass slippers, with help from her Mom and her bridesmaids and hurried to the horse drawn carriage that had been magically transformed from a pumpkin into a coach, a mouse into a horse, a rat into a coachman, and a lizard into a footman.
The horse and carriage, with its beautiful bride and her Mom, arrived at the ceremony site while onlookers were in awe of the Fairy Tale unfolding right before their eyes! Jessica stepped down from the carriage, before her wedding guests and her court. Everyone was entranced by Jessica, especially Bryant, who never took his eyes off of her.
The lawn was manicured to precision and the white wedding chairs were placed all in a row with coral pomanders and starfish hanging from each aisle chair. The Gazebo was adorned with coral pomanders from each window opening and an array of coral beads, fresh greenery, and sheer fabric bows lined the Gazebo entrance. Huge ferns on columns stood on both sides.
Jessica was given in marriage by her Mom, Donna Adams, while Bryant’s brother-in-law, Brock performed the heartfelt ceremony. Her 3 attendants wore gorgeous coral dresses, as well as the precious flower girl, Grace, niece of the groom. The groom and his attendants wore light tan suits with coral ties and coral bouts, as did the ring bearer, Cooper, cousin of the bride.
The ceremony ended and they were pronounced husband and wife forever. It was sealed with a kiss! Cinderella and her Prince boarded the Carriage and waved goodbye to all their guests before riding off for a short island tour.
After the reception ended and my time with this couple was over, I once again found myself a little teary eyed. I always hate to say good bye. I loved meeting all the family members and getting to know these North Carolina folks. The children in the wedding stole my heart with their precious little selves! I hugged everyone good bye and can’t wait to see them again when they visit St. Simons Island.
