Moxley-Williams celebrate first anniversary



Flower girls were Leah Nation, cousin of the bride, from Pauls Valley, and Avery Williams, niece of the groom, from Colorado Springs. Caydn Williams, nephew of the groom, from Colorado Springs, served as ring bearer.

Readings were given by Samantha Kahoe, who read 1 Corinthians 13:1-8, and by Owen-John Williams, who read a Buddhist Marriage Homily.

The bride wore a champagne-colored gown covered with whimsical flowers designed by Maggie Sottero. She wore a hair piece made of fuchsia stock and light pink lisianthus flowers accompanied by a champagne-colored veil with a beaded trim. To complement the dress, the bride wore gold and crystal Nadri earrings and bracelet. She wore a mother-of-pearl ring as well as a ring with an emerald and cluster of pearls, both from her mother.

The bridesmaids wore strapless magenta chiffon knee-length dresses accented with a lavender gathered sash.

The bride carried a bouquet of hand-gathered hot summer flowers that included stock, larkspur, lavender garden roses, snapdragon, green hypericum berries, thistle, billy balls, circus roses and dusty wheat wrapped in satin binding. The bridesmaids carried a smaller version of the bride’s bouquet.

Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed the sounds of the University of Oklahoma’s Steel Band and Antiguan rum punch, chosen by the couple as their signature drink. As the sun went down and the rain continued through the night, guests celebrated and danced with hundreds of glow sticks to music provided by DJ Ian Rohrback.

Grandparents of the bride included Caroel Stanford, Margaret Stanford, from Anadarko, Nolan and Mary Nelms, from Pauls Valley, and Lynn and Priscilla Moxley from Norman.

Overseas relatives included the groom's maternal grandmother, Daphné Mendes from Antigua and paternal grandfather, Trevor Williams from Llandudno, North Wales, along with other relatives and friends from Wales, Fla., and Antigua. As a surprise, the groom’s cousin, Victoria Strong, flew in from the UK.
