Friday, September 7, 2007
Mr. and Mrs. Lucas Brewer

The farm of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Boyd Liggett became a vision of beauty for the marriage of their daughter, Mary Rebecca Liggett, and Lucas Jerome Brewer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Rick Brewer of Arrington, on June 30.

Rosemary Strasser Heaton kept the guest register. There was a memorial of red roses on the register table to honor Hoyte and Ollie Mae Barron, Eunice and Annie Mary Liggett, Elmer Brewer and Mack Kelly, the late grandparents of the bride and groom.

Mary's attendants entered to the song, "From this Moment," by Shania Twain and Bryan White. Hannah Liggett, sister of the bride, served as the maid of honor. The bridesmaids, Katie Hill, Amy Cochran and Jennifer Giles, were all friends of the bride. The flower girl was Jessica Hickerson, the daughter of Kyle and Merry Hickerson and the granddaughter of Shelva Hickerson and the late Joe Hickerson. The Disney song, "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," played as Jessica, Mason and Garrett entered the tent.

Rick Brewer, father of the groom, served as Luke's best man. The groomsmen were Matt Brewer, brother of the groom, Jacob Lawhorn and Michael Heaton. Mason Collins, son of Matt and Meredith Collins, and Garrett Brewer, nephew of the groom, served as ring bearers. They carried satin pillows made by Grandma Julie Brewer. Mason pulled a red wagon as Garrett rode inside.

Mary was a vision of beauty as she entered to "Mendelssohn's Wedding March," on the arm of her father. She wore a princess style strapless satin dress with a totally beaded bodice and beaded patterns of flowers on the layered tulle skirt. A chapel length veil with beaded edges fell from her princess tiara. She carried a bouquet of mixed flowers. She wore a gold and diamond ring that belonged to her late grandmother, Annie Mary Ligget. She also carried a blue linen handkerchief that was her late grandmother's, Reba Little.

The wedding vows were taken in front of a beautiful white trellis built by Derek Smith. James Watkins took the announcement as Mary's parents gave her away. The father of the bride conducted the rest of the ceremony. After the exchanging of vows and rings, Luke and Mary left the tent to the song, "It Just Comes Natural," by George Strait.

The wedding party formed a receiving line to greet the guests. The guests were then led to the reception that was hosted by the aunts of the bride. Tammie Barron, Bettye Allen, Vera George and Jean Adams served the meal. Alfred Wakefield, Ted Cashion, Don Ledford, John Barron and Derek Smith all helped with the meal.

After the wedding, the couple honeymooned in Jamaica.

The rehearsal dinner was hosted by the groom's parents at the Buca di Beppos restaurant in Franklin.
