Peri and Adam

Peri Louise Winborne and Christopher Adam Frazier were wed in a morning ceremony on Saturday, June 1 at the home of David and Barbara Winborne. The wedding was officiated by family member Daron Evans, the bride’s uncle.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Steve Winborne of Clinton. She is the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Andrews of Cassville, Mo. and the late Mr. and Mrs. Harold Winborne Sr. of Florence. Frazier is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Dale Frazier of Flowood. He is the grandson of Doris Frazier and the late Bobby Kay Frazier of Cato, and the late Mr. and Mrs. David Earl Brewer of Jackson.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a flowing ivory colored gown. The dress had detailed lace work throughout the bodice with lace straps that dropped into a low cut back. The skirt was ivory silk underneath light layers of sheer white silk to create an airy dress perfect for a summer morning wedding. The bride wanted a simple look for the occasion and complemented the low back dress with a short veil made of white tulle.

For her something new, she wore silver earrings engraved with her new monogram. To honor her love of outdoors and summer mornings, the bride did not wear shoes during the ceremony or reception. 

She carried a large bouquet of white and peach colored roses, silver dollar eucalyptus, seeded eucalyptus, leather leaf, baby’s breath, and peonies, in honor of her grandmother. Wrapped around the base of the bouquet was a piece of the mother of the bride’s wedding dress, lace beaded with pearls.

Matron of honor was the bride’s college teammate, Amelia Wilson of Crossville, Tenn. Her maid of honor, another college teammate and roommate, was Meghan O’Donoghue of Morristown, Tenn. Bridesmaids were cousin Jaci Evans of Cassville, the bride’s cousin;, sister-in-law Delaney Winborne of Knoxville, sister-in-aw of the bride; Cristie Rives of Madison; and Heather Frazier of Flowood, the bridegroom’s sister.

They wore gowns of light blue with differing styles and fabrics and carried smaller versions of the bride’s bouquet.

The bridegroom’s father and also his childhood friend Justin Rives of Madison were best men.  Groomsmen were a fellow Ridgeland Titan Marchenne Hatchett, childhood friend Jarred Tanksley, brother Charlie Frazier, former Ridgeland coach Allen Marrett, and cousin West Brewer.

The couple wanted a casual gathering for the event and offered coffee, milkshakes and fruit infused water for guests to enjoy during the ceremony.

The couple are educators in Madison County Schools and have served the Ridgeland Zone for many years. Four siblings who were former students of the couple and now part of the group, Four Washington, sang during the ceremony. The couple requested “Looking in the Eyes of Love” by Allison Kraus and “My Girl” by the Temptations for their ceremony and “You and Me” by Penny and the Quarters for their first dance at the reception. The siblings’ presence added a special touch to the occasion by tying in the couple’s passion for teaching.

The ceremony was followed by a casual “Jazz Brunch” style reception.

On the eve of the wedding the bridegroom’s parents hosted a barbecue dinner for the family and the wedding party at the Spring Lake Venue in Pearl.

The couple is known for their love of travel and spent their three-week wedding trip in Japan, Malaysia, India, The Seychelles, and the United Arab Emirates. They returned to their home in Ridgeland to continue their mission in education. Adam is the assistant principal at Ann Smith Elementary and Peri is an eighth grade history teacher and coach at Olde Towne Middle, both in the Ridgeland Zone of Madison County.
