Caitlin Yates of Union City and Seth Lamphier of Troy were recently united in marriage at Tulip Tree Wedding Chapel in Jackson. Minister Frank McMeer of Jackson officiated the double-ring, Christian ceremony.
The bride is the daughter of Keith and Pam Yates of Union City. She is the granddaughter of Bill and Barbara Turnbow of Union City and Rachel and the late Byron Yates of Mayfield, Ky.
The groom is the son of Terry and Cynda Lamphier of Troy. He is the grandson of Bill and Jeannine Cranford of Union City and the late George and Lillie Lamphier of Troy.
The quaint chapel had any outdoor amenities, including hand-crafted stained-glass windows, a large deck overlooking a lake and waterfalls, a brick lined path to stroll around the lake and a large bridal swing. The inside of the chapel was decorated with three large candelabra with beautiful fresh greenery and white calla lilies. The pews were decorated with white tulle and fresh greenery.
Lisa Hopson of Union City attended the register. The registry table was covered with a white lace tablecloth and held fresh greenery and white calla lilies.
Amber Wade of Union City served as maid of honor. Hailey Crowell of Troy served as the bridesmaid. They wore short, strapless, guava-colored dresses which featured sweetheart necklines and ruched waists with unique egg-shaped skirts.
Zachary Anderson of Hornbeak served as best man. Timothy Hickey of Martin served as the groomsman. They wore black tuxedos with guava vests and ties.
The bride was dressed in an exquisite strapless lace chiffon dress. It featured a sweetheart neckline and a beaded lace side drape with a satin split front. The bodice was encrusted with pearls and sequins and the back featured a lace-up corset that flowed into a chapel-length train. Her bouquet featured fresh white calla lilies, fresh greenery, baby’s breath and iridescent pearls.
A reception followed the ceremony in the reception hall of the chapel.
Cake, nuts, mints, fruit, vegetables and punch were served by Jana Ray and Marian Spencer, both of Kenton, and Hope Sweatt of Martin.
The wedding cake was a three-tiered white cake, which featured a fountain underneath. It was beautifully decorated with fresh greenery and white calla lilies, which were also placed surrounding the cake. The cake topper was a beautiful crystal figure of a bride and groom.
The couple left the chapel for a short honeymoon.
They reside in Union City.
