Durham-Hann exchange vows

Monday, October 27, 2003

Christina Durham and Justin Hann exchanged wedding vows in a 5:30 p.m. ceremony June 14, 2003, at the home of the bride's parents near Campbell. The Rev. Kenny Burchard of Greenville, friend of the bridegroom, performed the ceremony.

The bride is the daughter of Christ and Tina Durham of Campbell, and the bridegroom is the son of Brenda and Paul Hann of Dexter.

Singers for the occasion were Rachel King, friend of the bride, and Angie Dugan and Debbie Stogsdill, cousins of the bride. Live and recorded musical selections included "Only God Could Love You More", "There is Love", "Too Young", "Look At You, Girl", "Forever and For Always", "Faithfully", and "There You Are".

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a strapless, white satin gown, which was adorned with pale blue embroidery featuring small, clear and silver rhinestones on the bodice. The gown was complemented with a small train which was also embellished with the same embroidery and rhinestones. To complete her ensemble, the bride wore a silver tiara with soft blue rhinestones in her hair and a waist-length veil with small, white edging. Her diamond earrings were worn in keeping with the traditional "something borrowed" from her grandmother, Wilma Durham, and "something old" was a small family cross worn in her hair, which was also worn by her mother on her wedding day and belonged to the bride's great-grandmother, Verna Cameron. She carried yellow and white daisies tied together with white ribbon.

Maid of honor was Heather Hollis and bridesmaid was Jessica Cunningham, friends of the bride. The bridesmaids wore sleeveless, pale blue summer dresses that were adorned with a white daisy trim just under the bodice, and the dresses were made by the bride's paternal grandmother, Verneta Fleming. They also carried a soft blue and yellow plaid bag filled with an arrangement of yellow and white daisies.

Flower girls, Madison White, niece of the bridegroom, and Melissa Fleming, cousin of the bride, wore pale blue dresses also made by Verneta Fleming. They, too, carried the blue and yellow plaid bags similar to the bridesmaids. Each female in the bridal party wore an up-do with small daisy hairpins.

The bridegroom wore a black tuxedo with a white vest and tie complemented by a white daisy boutonniere.

Ryan Mouser served his friend as best man. Groomsman was Bryce Durham, brother of the bride. The groomsmen wore black tuxedos with a light blue vest and tie and yellow daisy boutonnieres.

Guestbook and program attendants were Jessica Harris and Calie Worsham, nieces of the bridegroom.

Following the ceremony, a reception was held outside under a white canopy tent, where refreshments made by Patty Timmer, aunt of the bride, were served by Heather Worsham, sister of the bridegroom; Angie Dugan, cousin of the bride; and Brittany Abernathy and Sonya Edington, friends of the bride.

Round guest tables were covered in white table cloths with yellow and blue plaid scarves placed in the middle. Tall, oversized champagne glasses filled with water and daisy and heart floating candles served as centerpieces.

A three-layered cake was decorated with daisies and Precious Moments figurines. Figurines of the bride and bridegroom were placed on the top layer of the cake.

Following a honeymoon trip to Gulf Shores, Ala., and Destin, Fla., the new Mr. and Mrs. Justin Hann are residing in Jefferson City.
