Mullens-Sewell wedding

The bride was escorted by her father to the tune of “Liz on Top of the World” from “Pride and Prejudice.” She wore a soft white strapless, floor-length gown accented by rhinestones at the waist with a taupe ribbon bow. A spring bouquet of white mums, coral spray roses, freesia, green button mums and willow was carried by the bride.
