Mary and Ben celebrated their nuptials amid Chinese lanterns, twinkle lights, votives and live music by Memphis Train Revue.

Mary and Ben float down the aisle of St. Paul’s Methodist Church. She wore a custom Oscar de la Renta gown in pink silk faille.

The Story
The stylish bag designer (owner of Mary Nichols Handbag collection) met her attorney groom at a friend’s birthday party.

The Details
Mary and Ben designed their rose gold rings (his had her fingerprint etched into it) with Davidoff Diamond. Keely Thorne Events helped the couple plan an ombré pink and orange affair.

The Party
Jackson and Company canopied her family’s backyard in a lifted, carpeted tent with a white dance floor, clear walls and crystal chandeliers—draped in burlap, velvet ribbons and flower garlands. Divisi Strings welcomed 140 guests to a seated dinner, followed by dancing, late-night chicken and waffles with chocolate chip cookies and a Hotel ZaZa after-party.
