Allie Mayers and Lauren Ratliff served as program attendants. Morgan, Claire and Sophie Simmons served as “bubble girls.”

A reception hosted by the parents of the bride was held immediately following the ceremony in the ball room at Brandon Hall Plantation. Music was provided by Sylvia Johns Ritchie and Accompaniments.

Guests dined on a menu of Southern cuisine prepared and served by Sisters Strong Catering. The groom’s cake was served by Jennifer Ratliff and the bride’s cake was served by Jessica Ratliff, sisters of the groom.
