Lindsey-Clarke wed in vintage ceremony at Peacewood

Jennifer Katherine Lindsey and Hill Edwin Clarke III were united in marriage on Saturday, May 21, 2011, at 5 p.m. at Peacewood, the antebellum home of Bill and B.J. deGolian of Buckhead in Atlanta. The Rev. Ronny Lindsey, father of the bride, officiated the ceremony. The porch was decorated with swagged peach and light seafoam colored moiré ribbon and ivory tulle and hydrangea and rose wreaths. The walkway was lined with shepherds hooks that held the same ribbon and tulle swagged and hanging flower vases with roses, Gerber daisies and baby's breath. The bride is the daughter of the Rev. Ronny and Patti Lindsey of Washington. She is the granddaughter of Wilma Bunch and George Bunch and the late Jenny Ruth Lindsey and Richard Lindsey, all of Washington. The groom is the son of Michael Clarke of Gray, Ga., and Malise Clarke of Macon, Ga. He is the grandson of Jackie Colbert and Harry Colbert, both of Round Oak, Ga., and Robert Clarke Sr. and the late Ann Clarke of Gray, Ga. Maid of honor was Elli Lindsey, sister of the bride, of Washington. She wore a vintage (1950s) tulle peach prom dress. The bridesmaid was Meg Kelly of Philadelphia, Pa., best friend of the bride. She wore a light seafoam vintage (1950s) tulle prom dress and carried a bouquet of peach English roses, white peonies and rice flowers. Honorary bridesmaids (ladies who helped but didn't participate in the wedding) were Martina Radic of Charleston, S.C., bride's brother's girlfriend; and Ivey Lindsey of Cleveland, Ga., cousin of the bride. Flower girls were Willow and Annalise Williams of Macon, nieces of the groom. They wore light peachy pink dresses with ivory lace overlay. The groom chose his father, Michael Clarke, as his best man. He wore a black tuxedo with teal vest and tie. The bride arrived at the ceremony in an original Model A Ford driven by her great-uncle, Chan Drake. The car belongs to Mr. Drake and his wife, Phyllis. As the bride walked down the aisle "Make You Feel My Love" by Bob Dylan, and "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds were sung. She was given in marriage by her parents, the Rev. Ronny and Ruth Lindsey. The bride was lovely in a ivory gold, duchess satin Casablanca dress. It was strapless with a slight sweetheart neckline and fully embroidered and hand beaded bodice. The ballgown skirt had a cathedral length trail that was embroidered and hand beaded in the same pattern as the bodice. Her cathedral length veil was trimmed in a gold stitch with small crystals sewn around the edge. It was topped off with her Maria Elena headpiece in gold with rhinestones and pearls. She carried a bouquet of peach Juliet David Austin English roses, white peonies, and rice flower. The stems were wrapped in peach moire ribbon and pinned with vintage pearl pins. The bride wore two items of sentimental value; a Victorian rose gold locket given to her mother when she was a child and a ring that belonged to her paternal grandmother, Jenny Ruth Lindsey. Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the Fitzpatrick Hotel Ballroom in Washington. The ballroom was decorated to match the wedding flowers. The cake was centered in the ballroom and its table was adorned with vintage linen, given to the bride by Mrs. Bunny Gunby. It belonged to her mother. The cake was four tiers of alternating colors of peach and seafoam and was decorated with white piping to resemble wedgewood china. The tables were adorned with depression pink glasses and vintage plates. Genevieve Coe, harpist, provided the music. After a honeymoon to Edisto Island, the couple is residing in Washington. They are planning a trip to Italy in the future.
