Ashlee Fran Duvall, daughter of Jim and Lesa Duvall of Rock Island, became the bride of Micah David McColloch, son of Tom and Pam McColloch on July 8. The 6 p.m. ceremony was held at The Saltbox Inn and Stables in Cookeville. Robert Duvall officiated the nuptials, with a special scripture reading by Bill McNeil.
The bride is the granddaughter of Betty Jo and the late George Thomas Glenn, and Carolyn and the late Kearney Duvall. Mr. McColloch is the grandson of Anna Rhea and the late Raymond Basham, and Jim and the late Earlene McColloch.
Lovely white blooming hydrangea plants created a gorgeous backdrop for the sunset ceremony at the gazebo. The double-ring outdoor ceremony was performed in front of a large cross, flowered with pink and ivory roses.
Miss Duvall was lovely in an ivory silhouette designed dress layered with alencon lace, from the halter neckline to the scalloped chapel length train. Covered buttons trailed down the back of the gown. She carried an heirloom ivory blush and pink rose bouquet, complemented with hydrangea blooms.
Rebekah Grant was her matron of honor, with Lydia Wilson serving as maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Chancery McColloch, Lauren Roller, Tailor Shores and Najely Perez. They each wore flowing knee length dresses in petal pink. Sheer chiffon crisscross draping accented the front and back.
Amelia Grant and Perry Grace McColloch were the flower girls, wearing ivory and lace baby doll dresses, with flower halos adorning their hair.
Matt McColloch and Merek McColloch were chosen as the best men. Groomsmen were Casey Tomberlin, Tyler Phillips, Jared Bozarth and Logan Wanamaker.
Sterling Starr was the ring bearer, and ushers were Landry Duvall, Will Grant, Luke Grant and Sam Grant.
A reception honoring the couple was held at the Salt Box Stables, with the 150 guests dining on a southern smoked barbecue meal prepared by the bride’s uncles, Terry and David Duvall.
White linen tablecloths with burlap runners and wooden trivets held the mother of the bride’s collection of white milk glassware. They were filled with petal pink and ivory roses, hydrangeas and summer greenery surrounded by mercury glass candles.
A farm table, placed in front of an antique mirror, reflected the lovely traditional wedding cake and the groom’s cupcakes.
Kim Porter, childhood friend of the bride’s mother, served as wedding coordinator. Patrick and Mark Harvey provided music for the ceremony, as well as the couple’s favorites during the reception.
The couple enjoyed dancing with friends and family before departing under a full moon through sparklers and cheers of congratulations.
