Tiffany LeNae Dalton and Dennis Wayne “DJ” Anders Jr. were united in marriage in a ceremony at Burem Missionary Baptist Church in Rogersville May 4, 2019.
The bride is the daughter of Tony and Becky Dalton of Mooresburg.
The groom is the son of the late Sgt. Dennis Anders Sr. of Aransas Pass, Texas, and Lynn and Danny Ward of Rogersville.
Rev. George “Fuzz” Bradley Jr. welcomed the guests and opened in prayer. Elias Nech, friend of the bride’s family, helped open the ceremony with stories of the bride and her family.
The wedding took place inside the sanctuary of the church. The wedding aisle was lined with Mason jars filled with tealight candles and burgundy and white peonies and roses with greenery. Wooden signs featuring the verses of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 also lined the aisle. The altar was decorated with logs, mason jars, galvanized milk cans, and glassware filled with candles, peonies, roses, and greenery. The altar’s cross was draped in a dusty blue swag. Flanked on each side of the cross was décor in honor of the groom’s late father. One side featured a police flag and his photo on easels, surrounded by flowers and birdcages, and the other side featured an In Memory table with his badge, police ranks, and gloves. The table also held the picture frame that held his photo and was used for the sand ceremony.
The bride was escorted down the aisle by her father. She wore a white A-line gown by Christina Wu. The V-neck bodice featured sequined lace. Her waistline was accented with a crystal-encrusted belt. The back of the gown featured a key-hole opening and lace appliqués and fell into a chapel-length train. She wore a fingertip length veil with pearls and beading along the edges to match her dress. Something borrowed was her mother’s pearl bracelet. Something new was the bride’s wedding dress, veil, and pearl earrings. The bride chose to have a navy blue wrist strap sewn into the dress in honor of her father-in-law as her something blue. Something old was her late aunt, Frankie Bray’s, wedding bands, which were attached to the bride’s bouquet along with charms featuring the father of the groom and the bride’s dog. The bouquet was a silk arrangement of white roses, burgundy roses and peonies, with baby’s breath and greenery.
Matron of honor was Tabatha Thacker, sister of the bride. Maid of honor was Courtney Breeden, friend of the bride, and bridesmaid was Krista Havens, sister of the groom. The ladies wore one-shouldered dusty-blue colored floor-length dresses. They carried bouquets of roses, peonies, and baby’s breath to match the bride’s bouquet.
The flower girls were Natalie Estep, and Briley, Addelyn and Lakyn Hunt. They wore navy tutus, white tops, and carried wicker baskets filled with burgundy and white petals.
