McDonnell, Wadlington

On Saturday, July 26, 2008, at 7 p.m., Carrie Elizabeth McDonnell and James Warner Wadlington, both of Jackson, were united in marriage at Central United Methodist Church in Meridian.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Melton McDonnell of Meridian. She is the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Victor Joseph Robinson of Starkville and Mr. and Mrs. Archie Reeder McDonnell of Meridian.

The bridegroom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Bedford Warner Wadlington III of Sledge. He is the grandson of Mrs. Bedford Warner Wadlington Jr. of Sledge and the late Mr. Wadlington and Mrs. William Sanford Boswell of Cleveland and the late Mr. Boswell.

The double-ring ceremony was officiated by the Revs. Jimmy Harrison and David Price. Nuptial music was provided by Joyce Tillery, organist; Peggy Sheppard, pianist; and Amy Roller, vocalist. Readers were Katherine Ann Isbell and Melissa Blair Love, both of Meridian. Jordan Willett of Jackson and Sarah Beth Fouts of Meridian were greeters and program attendants.

The bride was escorted by her father and given in marriage by her parents. She wore an ivory strapless silk organza gown adorned with reembroidered French Alencon lace. The fitted bodice fell into an A-line skirt that flowed into a chapel-length train. For her headpiece, the bride wore an elbow-length veil of ivory silk illusion. For something blue and old, she wore her mother's lace and blue satin bridal garter. For prosperity and wealth, a lucky 1956 sixpence coin was placed in the bride's shoe by Emily Greaney.

Jennifer Melton McDonnell of Meridian, sister of the bride, served as maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Lacey Elizabeth Cook of Jackson; Sarah Elizabeth Cowan of Little Rock, Ark.; Kellie Lee Giorgio of New Orleans, La.; Natalie Myatt Gower of Arlington, Va.; Emily Caroline Greaney of Dallas, Texas; Mary Clay Wadlington Morgan of Jackson, sister of the bridegroom; and Anna Susan Crell Wadlington of Canton.
