Mr. Turner is the son of John and Terri Turner, and he is the grandson of Paul and the late Francis Turner, and the late Turney and Wanda Craddock. 

Miss Loomis was escorted by her father. She was wearing a white floor-length gown featuring a fitted, lace beaded bodice and a deep V-neck, flaring out to a full bodied skirt. Her hair was a loose up do holding in a cathedral veil with lace and beaded detailing along the edges. She carried a dainty bouquet of spring flowers including lisianthks, purple was flower, white verbena, peach mini roses, dusty miller and greenery.

Madison Loomis of Kingsport was her sister’s maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Katherine Wright of Mount Juliet and Michelle Holtgraewe of Cookeville. The maid of honor and bridesmaids wore lavender, floor length elegant gowns.

A wedding reception was held following the ceremony at Wren’s Nest and hosted by the bride’s parents. Seventy-five guests enjoyed drinks, appetizers and a photo booth. After cocktail hour concluded, guests joined the newlyweds for dinner.

 Guests were seated at long dark wood farm tables centered with long floral arrangements of seeded eucalyptus greenery mixed with pink roses and mini white roses. Small floral vases, gold tea light candles, and deer antlers added a stylish and personable touch to the wedding reception.
A dessert table was available during the night which included doughnut towers, peanut butter brownies, cookies and a simple three tiered white wedding cake accented by large white roses and a gold bride and groom cake topper. The couple enjoyed dancing under an antique chandelier with friends and family prior to a sparker send-off.

Her husband is also a TTU graduate, earning a bachelor of science degree in ag business. He is the manager at Turner and Sons Nursery.
