A country wedding was held at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14, at Mount Vernon Baptist Church in Vernon Hill. Melinda Lewis was pianist. The ceremony was officiated by the Rev. Bill Wilkins.
The bride was dressed in a full-length traditional wedding gown with a full train veil. The groom wore a wedding white, long-sleeved shirt with a yellow pocket-handkerchief, blue jeans and work boots.
The bridesmaids wore a coordinating sunflower toned dresses covered with lace, and the groomsmen wore a gray long-sleeved dress shirt with yellow handkerchief, blue jeans and work boots.
The couple left the church on a 1970 International Farm All 140 tractor, which pulled the wedding party along on an old tobacco trailer with hay bales to the reception area. The tractor and trailer were symbols of endearment used in memory of the groom’s grandfather James M. Satterfield Sr., and in honor of his surviving grandmother, Hester L. Satterfield, who was also present for the service. Other tractors were on display as a nostalgic reminder of the groom’s country upbringing.
A reception with a sit down dinner provided by the bride’s parents was held at the home of the groom’s parents in Vernon Hill.
