Holtsinger, Chisholm exchange wedding vows May 13 at Madison Methodist

Elizabeth Kelly Holtsinger and Andrew Rhynehardt Chisholm were married May 13 at Madison United Methodist Church. The Rev. Ben Butler officiated the ceremony. Nuptial music was provided by Dr. Donna Banks, organist.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Don Holtsinger of Madison. The bridegroom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Stuart Haack Chisholm of Jackson.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a designer lace over lustre satin fit and flare gown. Pearl beading formed the v-neck and a peak-a-boo back, and continued throughout the lace detailing of the gown. She wore a silk edged waterfall cut designer veil accented by a rhinestone clip in her hair. A family heirloom diamond bracelet adorned her right wrist.

The bride’s bouquet was a hand-tied collection of cream and blush peonies, wedding spirit peach roses, white Eskimo roses, and succulents accented with peach hypericum berries. The bouquet was hand-wrapped with an heirloom vintage lace handkerchief that has been carried by four generations of Chisholm brides.

Matron of honor was Chelsea Allene Bennett of Atlanta. Maid of honor was Kayli Taylor Cobb of Dallas. Bridesmaids were Sara Frances Chisholm of Jackson; Haley Thomason McCollum of Clinton; and Melissa Grace Myers of Ridgeland. They wore sage-colored tulle gowns that featured a v-neck illusion with a ruched bodice and flowy skirt. Their hand-tied bouquets were a mix of white hydrangeas and baby’s breath.

The bridegroom’s father was best man. Groomsmen were Daniel Stanley Bennett of Atlanta; John Christopher Coleman of Petal; Michael Taylor Crockett of Fairhope; and David Keeton Houpt of Jackson.

Following the ceremony, the bride’s parents hosted a reception at the Jackson Yacht Club. Musical entertainment was provided by the Hunter Gibson Trio.

On the eve of the wedding, the bridegroom’s parents hosted a dinner at Anjou, Township at Colony Park in Ridgeland.

A bridesmaid luncheon was held the Friday before the wedding at Bravo Italian Restaurant and was hosted by Judy Hutchinson.
