Mary Cannon Barrett and Trevor Walters

Describe your wedding dress: My dress was a candlelight-colored satin gown with pleats at the waist. It had a lace overlay with a boat neckline so beautifully crafted by Julia Ray. The dress itself was a remake of my grandmother’s wedding dress. All of the material that was used to make my dress was from her dress. It was both my something old and new.

Favorite moment from your big day: My favorite moment was our first look. It was just so magical and special to both of us!

Favorite wedding details: Our favorite wedding details were our cigar bar provided by Anu Amen-Ra, “The Sartorial Tobacconist.” He was accompanied by his brother, Dokk, who wrote custom poetry pieces for each of our guests. They truly created a personalized experience.
