Walker - Sellers wedding


CULLMAN — Kayla Beth Sellers and Timothy Ray Walker were united in marriage Jan. 8, 2011, in a double ring ceremony at Mission Grove Baptist Church, the Rev. Malcolm Carter II.

The bride is the daughter of Rickey and Lisa Sellers of Vinemont. Her grandparents are Faye Sellers and the late Junior Sellers, the late Gail Hightower-Rogers and honorary grandparents, W.L. Barnett and Carol Clay. Her great-grandparents are the late Thurman and Alma Meigs, the late Jessie and Gracie Sellers and the late Oscar and Ellen Hightower.

The groom is the son of Richard and Kathy Walker of Vinemont. His grandparents are Barbara Walker and the late Berton Walker, Gail Nickelson and the late Loyd Nickelson. His great-grandparents are the late Oliver and Lily May Walker, the late Joseph and Millie Peak, the late Hardy Luther and Maggie Mae Nickelson, and Lela Smith and the late William Smith.

Given in marriage by her parents, Kayla wore a diamond white Mona Lisa Royale gown by Maggie Sottero. The one-piece strapless gown boasted a lace-up corset back and a sweetheart neckline. The bodice featured regal embellished embroidery accented with Swarovski crystals, bugle beads, seed beads, glass beads and sequins that was reflected on the front panel of the A-line skirt. The caught-up cutaway skirt is decorated with motifs that also accent the caught-up skirt back. The embellished chapel-length train with gentle gathered tucks finished the style.

She wore a modified tiara-style comb of intertwined rhinestone fleurettes and diamond-shaped medallions, finished with clusters of Austrian crystals. The bride’s single-tier fingertip veil of illusion was hemmed with an embroidered flower and vine pattern of silver metallic, embellished with miniature sequins and seed pearls, mother-of-pearl recaille beads and Austrian crystal beads.

Kayla carried a nosegay bouquet of hot pink flowers that included rosebuds, azaleas, zinnias, and three white-edged rose blooms in the center, complete with crystal accents and ribbon-wrapped stems.

Blair Briscoe Thompson was matron of honor. Casey Watwood served as maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Amber Schlosser, Krissi Stephens, Marie Walker and Brooke Echols. Each lady wore a chiffon dress with a sweetheart neckline. Pleats and gathers accented the mock bandeau-style bodice. The A-line skirt held gathers in the front of the dress.

Flower girls were Natalie Scott and Breaze Freeman.

Best man was Kevin Baldwin. Groomsmen were Daniel Schlosser, Richard Walker, Justin McDonald and William Nickelson.

Lance Echols and Cody Thompson served as ushers and candlelighters.

Dalton Lee and Nick Miller were ring bearers.

The reception was held at Mission Grove Baptist Church. Bridget Brannon was in charge of the bride’s register.

Servers were Bridget Brannon, Kelli Lowery, Carol Clay, Colleen Jackson, Deborah Williams, Betty Meigs, Saundra Lawrence, Beverly Rogers, Donna Lee and Sarah Caudle.
