Lauren Michelle Hall and Aaron Michael Maroon were united in marriage on Saturday, May 13, 2017, at six o’clock in the evening at Ridgecrest Baptist Church in Ferriday, Louisiana, with Reverend Dennis Baker officiating at the service. The church was filled to capacity with family and friends.
The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Bridge Hall of Ferriday. She is the granddaughter of the late Louise McIntosh Lancaster of Clayton, Louisiana; the late James Edison Lancaster of Jackson, Mississippi; and the late Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Wood Hall of Vicksburg, Mississippi.
The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Loyce Maroon of Ferriday. He is the grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Benton Allen Blackmon, Sr., and Mr. and Mrs. Loyce Maroon, all of Ferriday.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride was a vision in a Lillian West mermaid gown with an illusion Sabrina neckline and a sheer back with lace appliqués that fell into a sweeping train. She completed her look with an appliquéd, waltz-length veil worn in memory of her late aunt Teresa Diane Hails. She carried an enchanting bouquet of various hues of ivory and white roses and white peonies with greenery. The bouquet was placed in a monogrammed handkerchief adorned with charms of loved ones passed.
Attending the bride as matron of honor was Logan Blackmon Williams. Emma Claire Loomis served as maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Guylan Britt Brown, Cassie Clark Crew, Stephanie Pardue Hatten, Brooke Courville LeDoux, Whitney Taylor Prudhomme, and Taylor Anne Sheppard. The honorary bridesmaid was Macy Alexandra Loomis. Junior bridesmaids were the bride’s cousins, Annie Louise Raven and Lily Grace McCarthy. The bridesmaids wore blush, floor-length, patterned and sequined Mori Lee gowns. They each carried bouquets of ivory and white roses and white hydrangeas with greenery.
The best man was the groom’s father, Matthew Loyce Maroon. Groomsmen included Aaron McCoy Adair, William Scott Brown, Zackary Tyler Brown, Seth Brannon Cotton, Austin Lance Lipsey, and Ross Ellis Lipsey. Junior groomsmen were the bride’s cousins, Henry Arthur Raven and Gus Sullivan McCarthy. The ring bearer was Jed Avery Edwards. The groomsmen wore navy Michael Kors suits accented with navy ties. Patrick Russell Hails and Jakob Tomas Porter served as ushers, wearing the same attire as the groomsmen. The boutonnières were made of white peonies and roses with greenery.
David Lee Taylor provided lovely selections of music for the ceremony that was performed in front of a rustic backdrop of antique doors accented with Boston ferns. “O” So Pretty Flowers of Natchez, Mississippi, provided all the floral designs and decorations at both the ceremony and reception; and Abagail McCary Washington coordinated the wedding and reception. Magnolia Mariée Bridal Boutique of Natchez, Mississippi, provided the wedding attire for the entire wedding party.
Following the ceremony, the wedding party and families of the bride and groom participated in a photo session. Angela Groce of Unveiled Radiance Photography captured all of the engagement, bridal, and wedding portraits. The wedding guests traveled to Panola Woods Country Club in Ferriday for the reception that began with the couple’s first dance to “Makin’ Me Look Good Again,” performed by Ross Ellis Lipsey, one of the groomsmen, of Nashville, Tennessee. The bride and her father danced to “It Won’t Be Like This for Long” while the groom and his mother danced to “Humble and Kind.”
Guests were offered a variety of food prepared by Lakeside Catering of Monterey, Louisiana. Throughout the evening they enjoyed music and dancing provided by DJ Glen McGlothin. Debbie Hudson of Jonesville, Louisiana, created the couple’s cakes. The bride’s five-tier cake was decorated with raked, butter-cream frosting and clusters of white peonies. Pineapple, white-almond, strawberry, and chocolate were the delicious flavors among the five tiers. The cake was topped with the couple’s monogram in navy. The groom’s cake was funfetti flavored, frosted with butter-cream icing, covered with chocolate-dipped strawberries, and topped with the letter “M.”
Sparklers lit the night as the bride and groom exited the reception through a lighted tunnel of their closest friends and family. After their wedding trip to Playa, Mujeres, Cancun, the couple are at home on Lake St. John near Ferriday, Louisiana, with the groom the owner of Ace Oilwell Services in Vidalia, Louisiana, and the bride a pharmacist at Vaughan’s City Drug in Ferriday.
