The bride was escorted during the evening event by her son, Christopher Sullivan. Serving as her maid of honor was friend, Misti Ledbetter. Attendants were Mara Ferguson of Fosterville, Jaycie Plemons of Shelbyville, Millie Carter of Wartrace, Alea Clevenger of Fayetteville, Lexie Spence of Bell Buckle and Ashley Wilkes of Smyrna.
