2014 Real MidSouth Weddings
Nicole Wallace and Matthew Smith were united in marriage on May 30, 2014. The bride is the daughter of Todd and Anna Wallace of Olive Branch, Mississippi. The groom is the son of Robbie and Cheryl Smith of Southaven, Mississippi.
Matthew proposed on July 21, 2013, two days after the bride’s birthday. The couple had gone to dinner to celebrate Nicole’s birthday. While they were out, their family and friends gathered at their home. As soon as she opened the door, everyone yelled “surprise” and an adorable puppy greeted her with a red bow tie around its neck and an attached ring.
The ceremony was held at the historic Heartwood Hall in Memphis, Tennessee. Rev. Terry Carver, the groom’s uncle, officiated.
With 130 friends and family members in attendance, the ceremony took place in the Four Seasons Garden. Before exchanging vows, the couple did the Blessing of the Hands ceremony. A reception followed at the Barn, another location on the property. Guests enjoyed a full-course buffet, including a martini mashed potato bar, and cookies and cupcakes for dessert.
For something old and something borrowed, the bride wore her mother’s pearl necklace. She received new earrings from her parents, and she had a handkerchief with initials stitched in blue.
Following a honeymoon in Montego Bay, Jamaica, the couple resides in Southaven, Mississippi.
