Mrs. LaCosta Ellington David and Mr. Mark David Jr. were united at The Edenfield House in Swainsboro at noon on Saturday, September 4, 2021. The intimate double-ring ceremony was officiated by Rev. Randy Adams of Wrightsville.
The bride is the daughter of Angie Giles and David and Fran Ellington. Her grandparents include Louise Oglesby, Lottie Overstreet, the late Rufus “Buddy” Oglesby, the late Randy Ellington, and the late Hilton and Juanita Duncan.
The groom’s grandparents include Jimmy and Marie Hooks.
The flowers consisted of an assortment of burgundy- and cream-colored dahlias with a touch of deep red roses. The arrangements were adorned with hints of blue given by blue thistle and beautiful silver dollar eucalyptus. A large arrangement was placed on the head table, and small arrangements were placed on the center of guest tables. The wedding colors included burgundy and navy.
The Edenfield House catered and served the sit-down formal lunch, salad bar, stuffed chicken breast, seasoned green beans, loaded baked potatoes, and rolls.
Wedding cake and groom’s cake were served for dessert. The three-tiered ivory colored wedding cake made by Fanncy Sweetz was garnished with assorted flowers and topped with a custom “Mr. and Mrs. David” gold cake topper. The groom’s cake was a blueberry crumble cheesecake made by Honey Specialists.
The bride walked in to “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran, and favorite and meaningful songs of the bride and groom were played during lunch. Guests signed a spud wrench, honoring the groom’s career, made of wood by Jason Bagget of Garfield.
The bride’s son, Joshua Hicks, and daughter, Jlynn Hicks, gave away the bride. Joshua wore a navy blue suit with a burgundy tie, and Jlynn wore a burgundy, knee length open back dress trimmed in lace.
The bride’s dress was an A-line, champagne colored, V-neck, asymmetrical satin and lace wedding gown and bodice adorned with rhinestones.
The bride and groom departed in a decorated car with “Just Married” flags and decals. The happy couple had a honeymoon in Charleston, South Carolina. They say wedding planning was smooth and stress-free, thanks to Jazzmyn Cox and the late Aaron Correll of The Edenfield House. The Davids also say married life is treating them perfectly and they are truly living the happiest life with the best partner.
