The wedding weekend was sunny and beautiful for Allie Swinford and Jeremy Edwards. Through the talents of people in the Cobb County and Marietta community, their June 22 dream wedding came true.

On Friday evening, Jeremy’s family hosted the rehearsal dinner at the Marlow House, owned by Rebecca Rowden, near First Presbyterian Church of Marietta, where the couple wed on Saturday.

Out-of-town guests stayed at the Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel & Conference Center where a golf outing was conducted on Saturday morning while the bride’s aunt, Barb Uchwat, hosted a lovely bridal luncheon at Brumby Hall & Gardens next to the hotel.

Allie was stunning in a beautiful strapless lace and organza mermaid wedding dress with sweetheart neckline, lace bodice with matching lace appliqué with chapel length train by designer David Tutera for Mon Cheri. Vivian Gray of Encore Formals and Bridal on Dallas Highway in West Cobb owned by Kathy Welch assisted in alterations.

Erin Santos of Tin Can Photography captured the wedding memories for the couple. Jeff Brister, owner from Carriage House Catering on Whitlock Avenue, catered the delicious food for the rehearsal dinner and the reception at the Brickyard off the Marietta Square. Tammy Ream, who manages the Brickyard, also served as the wedding coordinator and did an amazing job.

Miss Mamie’s Cupcakes on the Marietta Square created the wedding cake as well as cupcakes for the bridesmaid brunch and shower. Salon Three-13 on Canton Road did hair and makeup for the bride and bridesmaids. Wedding invitations were purchased from Abbott Hall at Formssmith Printing on Kennesaw Avenue in Marietta.

Among the local well-wishers attending the celebration were Allison and Pete Berard, Alice and Steve Black, Mary Beth and Mike Clotfleter, Teresa and Dan Goodyear, Susan and Greg Hallmark, Dana Raisner and Lucas Hunt, Wendy and Peter Jarrett, Margaret and Charles Lassiter, Jean and Finis McCarver, Brenda Ray, and Libba and Wilkie Schell.

Allie is a 2003 graduate of Harrison High School and graduated from Georgia Southern University in 2007. She is a third-grade teacher at Dowell Elementary. Jeremy, a 1999 graduate of Murray County High School and 2004 graduate of Kennesaw State University is an information security advisor at Dell Secure Works.

Allie is the daughter of Kathy and Howard Swinford. Jeremy is the son of Harry Edwards of Resaca and Karen and Paul Krum. The couple resides in Woodstock.

Fashion spotlight of the week: In a black and white print skirt and coordinating white sweater set trimmed in a black leather and gold chain (think Chanel!) — Senior Vice President at Managed Care Barbara Corey — dressed for success.
