Wafford, Suttles unite in marriage

Joining their lives and hearts, Ashley Jill Wafford married Shaun Cason Suttles April 22, 2006 at the Mt.Vernon church of Christ, in Mt.Vernon. Scott Wallace, youth minister from Nacogdoches, Texas, officiated the double ring ceremony.  Janessa Malone sang as the grandparents and parents of the couple were seated.

The bride, escorted by her father, entered the church to Pachelbel’s “Canon in D Major”.  She wore a strapless A-Line gown of white satin and organza.  The bodice and chapel length train were embellished with beading and metallic embroidery.  She also wore a necklace and earrings of champagne colored baroque pearls made by her aunt, Annette Escobar.  A handkerchief, which was the bonnet that she wore home from the hospital at her birth, was woven into her bouquet of tulips, roses and hydrangeas.  The bride’s garter was made by her grandmother, Wanda Pendergrass.

Dala Narramore, cousin of the bride, served as the maid of honor, wearing a celadon floor length A-line spaghetti strap gown with an organza drape. Bridesmaids were Meagan Suttles, sister of the groom, Erin Corley, Anna Ashby and Amanda Smith, friends of the bride. They wore gowns of the same style, in soft pink and all carried two dark pink roses tied with pale pink sheer ribbon. Olivia Harrison, flower girl and cousin of the groom, scattered tulip and rose petals saved from the couple’s courtship. 

The best man was Ryan Tyndell, friend of the groom. Groomsmen were Luke Harrison, cousin of the groom, Aaron Wafford, brother of the bride, Larry Christensen and Scott Osterhoudt, friends of the groom. Landon Wafford, cousin of the bride, carried the ring pillow that was made by the bride’s grandmother, Wanda Pendergrass, for the bride’s parents wedding.

A reception at the Franklin County Airport followed. Finger foods were served along with punch from a silver fountain.  The bride’s cake was four layers and iced in white with scrollwork on each of the layers. Pink roses and green hydrangeas cascaded down one side. The groom’s cake was a playing field resembling the Houston Astros stadium, Minute Maid Park. The groom’s mother made the cakes.  Serving were Starr Worley, Magen Harvey, Keitra Stoker and Lacy Hoffman, friends of the bride.
