There were 6 bridesmaids and their black dresses with bright red/orange flowers were very attractive. Derreck did not come up with 6 corresponding groomsmen, only 4, but they were all so handsome in their black suits. They had three readings and a symbolic tree planting dedication in the ceremony. The weather was perfect and we all had a great time. Kate and Derreck, congratulations!

Kate and Derreck's Wedding at Home in Holly Springs!
Kate and Derreck wanted to have their wedding in their backyard and the reception in the front yard! So, they landscaped the backyard, installed a fence and created an altar for the ceremony with a pretty wooden arbor. They had a tent erected on the front yard and put tables and chairs underneath. Their cake was baked by a neighbor and placed on an elaborate cake stand that was in Derreck's family. They hired a photographer and DJ team: Tricia Bristow, photographer, and her husband, Brooks, Just Tunes DJ, 359-8558. We rehearsed the day before and were all ready for their great wedding.
