The immediate family gathered at the Marriott Hilton Head Re­sort and Spa in Hilton Head Is­land, South Carolina on Wednes­day, September, twenty-seventh. The ceremony, overlooking the beach, was performed in front of an arched wooden arbor adorned with white sheer fabric, magnolia garland and a profusion of white hydrangeas and springeri aspara­gus fern. Featured on either side of the arbor were cathedral pillar candles, lanterns and hurricane globes. An inscribed mirror wel­comed guests into the ceremo­ny area. Mr. Charles Rutledge Schroeder, of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, officiated. Mr. Thomas Clayton Reed of Lincoln­ton, Georgia, provided a selection of music on acoustical guitar.

Escorted by her father, the bride was given in marriage by her par­ents. She wore an ivory tulle fit and flare cathedral length gown adorned with patterned lace and a sweetheart neckline. The bride wore her mother’s cathedral length veil and an antique blue garter, worn by her maternal grandmoth­er and her mother on their wed­ding day. She carried a colonial bouquet comprised of white roses, hydrangeas and hypericum berries with silver dollar eucalyptus. En­circling the stems of the bouquet was beaded alencon lace from her mother’s wedding gown. The Bi­ble used during the ceremony was the bride’s great great grandmoth­er’s, for whom she was named.

The bride’s son, Levi, carried a banner holding the rings made by the bride’s paternal grandmoth­er. The bride’s twin half- sisters, Kessler Ann Bibb and McFerrin Dean Bibb, carried rose petals in antique silver bride’s baskets, a wedding gift from her father and step-mother.

The family reception was en­joyed at Alexander’s Restaurant. The bride displayed the wedding topper used first by her maternal grandparents and later by many other family members. The three- tiered cake, monogrammed with the couple’s initials, was cut with an engraved cake knife which was also used at her parent’s recep­tion. The events were coordinated by Mr. Murray Leslie Remsen, of Lincolnton, Georgia, very close friend of the bride’s family and cousin of the groom. The Clark family will make their home in North Augusta, South Carolina.
