Dr. Craig Hamlin, pastor of the bride, officiated in the double ring ceremony.

Lindsey and Adam paid a loving memorial tribute to their late grandparents, Mr. Ira William Smith and Mrs. Margaret Smith, Mr. Leonard Mann, Mr. Emery Lacy and Mr. John Kinton. In deeply heartfelt memory of Lindsey’s father, Billy Smith, the ceremony included a lighting of MEMORY candles and a piano and vocalist solo of “Hallelujah” performed by Mr. Adam Newson.
Music was provided by Mrs. Sheila Jackson, organist, Christopher Anderson Reed, pianist, and the New Hope String Trio. Greeters for this gorgeous and joyous day were Miss Georgia Johnson and Miss Meredith Sammons, cousins of the groom.
In honor of the couple’s wedding guests, Lindsey and Adam made a donation to The Ukraine Gypsy Ministry in support of Alicia Jones, a member of the bride’s church, Fairview Baptist. They also attributed their thankfulness and joy to “God whom has blessed us with His everlasting love!”
Following the ceremony, a cake cutting and reception was held in the fellowship hall of the church. The couple was introduced and walked together to the music of Selah, “God Blessed the Broken Road.” Before the couple left on their honeymoon, they were showered with rose petals and lavender buds and then whisked away by Ashley Bass in his 1928 Ford Coupe.
