2014 Real MidSouth Weddings
Joyce Millard and Robert Spiecha were united in marriage on September 20, 2014. The bride is the daughter of Robert and Sara Laman of Cordova, Tennessee. The groom is the son of Walter and Barbara Spiecha of Cherokee, Alabama.
Although they had lived in the same neighborhood for over 12 years and even had a few mutual friends, their paths never crossed until they met on Match.com. And after their first date, they were inseparable.
The ceremony was held in Memphis, Tennessee, and it was officiated by Joyce’s father, Bob, and Rev. Terry Street of St. Philip Episcopal Church. Winston Wolfe, a close family friend, granted their wish to be married at his home, Loxley Hall, in the Southwind community.
It was an intimate celebration among family and friends. The groom entered the ceremony room to The Beatles’ “All You Need is Love.” Joyce walked down the grand staircase toward her groom to Ella James’ “At Last.” She wore an elegant white chiffon, Grecian style, floor-length dress with silver embellishments at the neck and criss cross pleats at the waist.
A reception was held shortly after. The brothers of the bride, Jon and David, serenaded guests with their instrumental talents on guitar. A delicious selection of fresh fruit, beef tenderloin, deli pinwheels, meatballs, chicken wings and shrimp was served.
Following a honeymoon in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama, the couple resides in Collierville, Tennessee.
The bride graduated from the University of Tennessee at Martin and is employed by Keith S. Collins Company, LLC, as the senior association manager. The groom graduated from Auburn University in Alabama and is employed by First Data Corporation as a system engineer.
