Young and West exchange wedding vows

Anna Laura Young and Haden Lowry West were married July 23. The Rev. David T.A. Strain and the Rev. David Thomas Irving performed the evening ceremony at the First Presbyterian Church of Jackson. A reception followed at the Old Capitol Inn, with music presented by the Memphis Icebreakers.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Henderson Young III of Jackson. The bridegroom is the son of Dr. and Mrs. Peter Lowry West of Belden.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride’s designer wedding dress was a charmeuse with Swiss dot tulle overlay, beaded embellished applique, and sweetheart bodice. Her chapel length train was delicately trimmed with a scalloped lace hem, and her cathedral length veil of handmade Belgian lace was given to her by a friend of the bridegroom’s family.

 The bride’s bouquet was a collection of all white peony, tulips, and garden and spray roses with Stephanotis flowers tucked inside. The bouquet was hand-wrapped with a Belgian lace handkerchief given to her by a friend of the bridegroom, who also gave the veil.

Music was presented by William Wymond, organist; John Sinclair, cellist; and Elisabeth Sinclair, violinist.

 

Maids of honor were Karol Jordan Conaway and Emily Clark McLaurin, both of Jackson. Bridesmaids were Victoria Augusta Cannon and Margaret Lee Jones of Jackson, Virginia Broyles Lamb of Shreveport; Michelle Herold McIntyre of Ruston, La.; Casey Jenkins Sanford of Alexandria, Va.; Barbara Smith Walker of Brookhaven; and Julieanne White Weldy of Washington, D.C. They wore blush-colored chiffon gowns that featured a draped bodice with an off-the-shoulder sleeve. They carried smaller versions of the bride’s bouquet.

The bridegroom’s father was best man. Groomsmen were Stefan Sanders West and Noah Mansell West of Belden, brothers of the bridegroom; John Henderson Young IV and James Peaster Young of Jackson, brothers of the bride; William Ferris Brown and Edwin Poteat Lutkin Jr. of Jackson; Walton Carter Coleman of Valdosta, Ga.; William Arnot Geary Jr., Thomas Carnes Buford Threadgill III and William James Threadgill III of Memphis; Robert Todd Heinz of Dallas; and Bancroft Brooks Hieronymus of Mobile.

Program attendants were Claire Craig Crosland and Selah MaryMarie Roberts, cousins of the bride. The wedding director was Mrs. John Lowe Smith.

On the eve of the wedding the bridegroom’s parents hosted a dinner at the Country Club of Jackson.

On the day of the wedding the bride and her bridesmaids were honored with a brunch at the home of Mrs. Craig Crosland, aunt of the bride. A bridesmaids luncheon was held the Friday before the wedding at the home of Mrs. Bobby Dye, and co-hosted by Mesdames Kevin Connaway, Stanley Mangum, Steve Randolph and Joe Uithoven.

The bridegroom and his groomsmen were honored with a cookout at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Bill Geary the day of the wedding.

 

The couple now live in Jackson after a wedding trip to St. Lucia.
