Sarah Sansom Lowman of Pelham and Charles Asa Reynolds of Memphis, Tenn. were united in marriage Sept. 15, 2012, at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Jackson, Miss. The ceremony was officiated by the bride’s father, Dr. Jeff Lowman and the Rev. David Maginnis of Helena.
The bride is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Jeff E. Lowman of Pelham. She is the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. L. Graham Hughes of Jackson, Miss., and the late Sturgis Lee Lowman and Jean Sansom Lowman of Montgomery.
The groom is the son of Charles Edward Reynolds and Martha Smith Reynolds of Olive Branch. He is the grandson of Mr. Gerald Smith and the late Mary Smith of Evergreen and Mrs. Jeanette Reynolds of Memphis, Tenn.
Escorted by her brother, the bride wore her mother’s Priscilla of Boston gown altered by Sandra Ashford of The Ashford Collection in Ridgeland, Miss. The V-neckline of the bodice was adorned with antique Chantilly Alençon lace. From the deep V of the back fell a full train edged in a wide border of Alençon. The A-line skirt was accented with a pleated satin cummerbund. Her cathedral veil was also edged with antique Alençon lace and scattered with large Alençon medallions. Complementing the bride’s ensemble was a hand-tied bouquet of pink garden roses, cream hydrangeas and lavender.
Mary Lavens Maginnis, Miles Maginnis and Ann Coulter Maginnis, daughters of the Rev. and Mrs. David Maginnis of Helena, welcomed guests with wedding programs embellished with an original pen and ink sketch of the bridal bouquet. A watercolor of the bouquet, a gift from artist Eleanor Hughes, the bride’s maternal grandmother, was displayed in the church foyer. Photography was by Karla Pound Photography.
On the eve of the wedding, the wedding party, who were composed of friends from multiple states, celebrated with the groom’s parents at a rehearsal dinner at Table 100. The wedding day opened with a bridesmaids’ brunch given by family friends. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed dessert and dancing at historic Duling Hall in the Fondren district of Jackson.
Following a wedding trip to Hawaii, the couple is at home in Memphis, Tenn., where the groom is a general surgery resident with University of Tennessee, Memphis, and the bride is a college guidance counselor at Southern Baptist Educational Center.
