Brittany Meade Threadgill and Cameron Powell Whitehurst were united in marriage at a candlelight service on November 2 at First Presbyterian Church of Jackson.
The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Meade Threadgill of Ridgeland. She is the granddaughter of William James Threadgill and the late Mrs. Threadgill of Columbus and the late Mr. and Mrs. Leon Eugene Lewis Jr. of Jackson.
The bridegroom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Scott Whitehurst of Chapin, S.C. He is the grandson of Mrs. Bobbie William Whitehurst and the late Mr. Whitehurst of Chesapeake, Va. and the late Reverend and Mrs. Arthur Seldon Lloyd Powell Jr. of Jacksonville, Fla.
The ceremony was officiated by the Reverend William Everett Dempsey, the Reverend Benjamin Nash Shaw, and the Reverend Jason Lee Sterling. Nuptial music was presented by Taylis Encinas, Wayne Linehan, Vincent Massimino, and William Wymond.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore an ivory, satin taffeta designer ball gown. The dropped-waist bodice, which featured a sweetheart neckline, enhanced her natural hourglass silhouette. The low back was highlighted with satin-covered buttons that cascaded to the bottom of the gown, which was edged in lace. She chose a cathedral-length veil with a raw-cut edge that fell to her fingertips and continued with sequin-embellished floral lace along the lower sides and bottom curve. A hair comb with freshwater pearls, marquise rhinestones, and glittering flowers added completed her veil. Her earrings were handmade with clear crystals and gold and silver crystals falling to a pearl drop.
She carried a traditional bouquet of white playa blanca roses, moonstone garden roses, peach shimmer roses, peach ranunculus, and seeded eucalyptus. The bouquet was hand-tied with two strands of the bride’s maternal grandmother’s pearls.
Matron of honor was Mary Paxton Lind. Bridesmaids were Anna Elizabeth Cozart, Annalise Maleah Hays, Katherine Sullivan Krouse, Haley Elizabeth McFall, Sarah Dabney Petrusnek, Olivia Catherine Shields, Brownlee Stephens Smith, and Rose Ellington Turner.
They wore floor length, chiffon dresses with halter necklines, blouson tops along with pleated back panels, and pleated skirts with faux wraps in a dusty blue color. Their bouquets included peach roses, white and peach ranunculus, and blue thistle.
Guests were greeted at the church by Sarah Clement Brooks, Maggie Elizabeth Clifford, Kristin Faciane McDougal, Taylor Byrd Peaster, Elise Chandler Rowell, and Caroline Puckett Stone. The bride’s proxy was Meredith Myers Sanford.
Timothy John Nabholz and John Walker Riley were best men. Groomsmen were Matthew Dylan Alderson, Tyler Gregory Burch, William Connor Norris, Paul Michael Smith, Burney Lewis Threadgill, James Cannada Threadgill, and Michael Scott Whitehurst.
Following the ceremony, the bride’s parents hosted a reception at their home. Two clear-topped tents twinkling with tiny lights enhanced the party as guests danced to the sounds of Atlanta Party Band. At the end of the evening, the couple was showered with white rose petals as they departed under a canopy of bistro lighting. They departed in a 1964 Austin Healey 3000, a classic convertible British Roadster owned and driven by David Turner
