Miss Rebekah Love became the bride of Mr. Thaddeaus Huffstutler on Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017 at 6:30 in the evening. The ceremony took place at The Plantation Barn of 1810 in Morristown. The double ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. Justin Self of Russellville.
The bride is the daughter of Nathan and Donna Love of Greeneville. She is the granddaughter of Jim and Wilma Hinkle of Greeneville. The groom is the son of John and Tammy Lynn Huffstutler of Mosheim. He is the grandson of Larry and Linda Huffstutler of Mosheim.
The wedding took place inside the barn and the couple exchanged vows before a hand-hewn cross. The aisle was outlined with red rose petals. The steps to the altar were flanked by antique storage barrels topped with oversize ferns. Music selections included, “Holy Ground” as the couple's parents were seated. The wedding processional began with “Joy of Man's Desiring.” The bride was escorted down the aisle by her father while “Canon in D” played and she given in marriage by her parents. The couple’s favorite song was sung during the ceremony, “Special Kind of Love” by Tim Fletcher.
The bride wore a white organza bridal gown that featured a modified portrait neckline of alencon lace and identical wrapped sleeves. The entire bodice of the gown was accented with seed pearls. The cummerbund inspired natural waistline fell into full ball gown skirt with a flutter ruffle that encircled the gown to form a chapel length train. The back of the gown featured traditional covered bridal buttons. Her headpiece was a rhinestone tiara. For something old, the bride chose pieces of lace from her late grandmother, Mona Love. Her borrowed piece was a rhinestone bracelet from her bridesmaid, Tiffany Nunley. Something new was the bride's wedding dress and tiara. The bride's groom was attired in navy as her request for something blue. The bridal bouquet was a fresh, hand-tied arrangement of red roses and baby's breath accented with asparagus fern.
The maid-of-honor was Heather Houser. The bridesmaids were Tiffany Nunley, Nicole Dixon and Alexis Wheeler. The maid-of-honor wore a navy floor length dress with three quarter length sleeves, and the bridesmaids wore tea length dresses with capped sleeves. All dresses were of lace. The ladies carried hand tied bouquets with a solitary rose, encompassed by baby’s breath. Joseph Gragg served as best man. Groomsmen were Rhett Seals, John Howerton and Daniel Love, twin brother of the bride.
The reception was held outside in the meadow with the barn serving as the backdrop. The catered buffet was a family-style cookout of hamburgers, hotdogs, baked beans, potato salad, macaroni salad and slaw. The bride and her bridesmaids baked the wedding cupcakes. Wedding director was Alice R. Rogers. Miranda Roberts was the photographer.
