Miss Chelsey Cline became the bride of Mr. Nicholas Barnard on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at four o’clock in the afternoon.
The ceremony took place at The Plantation Barn of 1810 in Morristown. The double ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. Jeff Daugherty of Greene Ridge Free Will Baptist Church in Afton. The groom’s late grandfather, the Reverend Richard Holt, was also an honorary officiate as his photo was on stage during the wedding. As part of the ceremony, the couple also performed the building of the Unity Cross based on the Bible passage Matthew 19:5-6.
The bride is the daughter of Marlene (Hollywood) Anderson of Rutledge and Chris (Nikki) Cline of Jefferson City. She is also the granddaughter of Mary and Freddie Roach, Zella Whittemore, Mary Sue and Robert Anderson and Cathy McCurry.
The groom is the son of Chuck and Laura Barnard of Talbott; and is the grandson of Doris Holt and the late Richard Holt of Mosheim and Kyle and Marie Barnard of Talbott.
The wedding took place inside the historic barn where white curtains framed the stage and back wall. An hewn Cross, heavily draped in ivory fabric and accented with turquoise, was the centerpiece of the stage. Centered above the stage was a crystal chandelier and there were nine additional hanging chandeliers scattered throughout the barn that were accented with burlap and draping pearls. The aisle was outlined with galvanized buckets tied with a burlap bow and overflowing with baby’s breath. The stage was flanked by wood barrels topped with ferns. Burlap, lace and pearl decorated mason jars, filled with candles, completed the rustic feel of the barn.
Music selections included “Holy Ground” as the grandparents were escorted to their seats. The mothers were walked into the ceremony to the song “My Wish.” The wedding processional began as the groom and groomsmen entered the venue to the song “Small Town Boy.” The bridesmaids made their way to the stage, followed by the ring bearer and then the flower girl being pulled in a decorated wagon to the song “Marry Me.” The bride entered the ceremony to “From this Moment On.” The bride was escorted to the altar by both her father and step-father and given in marriage by her parents. The wedding recessional was the couple’s favorite song, “Thinking Out Loud.”
The bride chose an organza, white, fitted, trumpet-style gown featuring a plunging neckline. The embroidered lace appliqués covered the gown and were embellished with sequins and pearls. The scalloped lace hemline circled to form a garden length train. The back of the gown featured an illusion back with beautiful sequin and pearl covered appliqués. A row of organza covered bridal buttons cascaded down to the train of the gown. Her headpiece was a crystal and pearl headband that was woven into her long blonde curls. Her something old was her baby rings saved for years by her mother. Something new was the bride’s wedding dress and cowgirl boots. Something borrowed was her veil from her matron-of-honor, Mandy Phillips. The bride had her wedding date embroidered on the inside of her wedding gown as her something blue. The bridal bouquet was fresh floral arrangement of wildflowers and baby’s breath.
The matron-of-honor was Mandy Phillips and the maid-of-honor was Taylor Christian. The bridesmaids were Bethany Barnard, sister of the groom, and Kristiana Russell. The ladies wore knee length organza and lace turquoise dresses and cowgirl boots. The maids carried bouquets matching to the bride.
The flower girl was Paisley Barnard, niece of the groom. She wore a white tulle dress and carried white flower pedals. The ring bearer was Brody Spencer.
Brad Barnard, brother of the groom, served as best man. Groomsmen were Derek Kinsler, Justin Roberts, Aaron Kinsler. The usher was Caleb Cline.
Both the bride and groom’s mothers each wore a charcoal grey lace dress.
The evening dinner reception was held outside under a white frame tent which included a dance floor and was decorated in the coordinating colors of the wedding. Yard games were also set up for guests to enjoy during this time. The guest register was a large custom wood frame with both the bride and groom’s name and date of the wedding. Wedding director was Alice R. Rogers. Caitlin Whitted baked the wedding cake. Shay’s Florist did the bouquets and floral. C.E. Photography did the photos and Dillion Murphy was videographer.
The new Mr. and Mrs. Barnard honeymooned in Destin, Florida and will reside in Jefferson County.
