Belk-Harrelson. (2003 Wedding Register).

Alison Hope Belk and Richard Wayne Harrelson were united in marriage at six in-the evening on January 12, 2002, at Weir Presbyterian Church, with Rev. Don McNeely officiating.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Morris Belk of Weir. She is the granddaughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Stevenson of Weir and the late Mr. and Mrs. Burl Belk of Vaiden.

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Harrelson of Iuka. He is the grandson of the late Mr. Boyce Harrelson and Mrs. Wilma Harrelson of Wheeler and the late Mr. Winfred Dawson and Mrs. Katherine Dawson of Booneville.

Vocalists for the candlelight ceremony were the bride's brother, Nic Belk, and his fiancee, Betsy Boerner, accompanied by Mrs. Ricki Prewitt, pianist. Readers were Michael Todaro and Brett Weathersby. Guests were greeted at the registry by the bride's cousin, Carly McCluskey. Mrs. Becky Orr directed the ceremony.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a fitted gown of matte silk crepe. The low back and sleeves were fashioned of tulle and accented with ribbon, pearls, and sequins. Her waist-length veil was dotted with crystals and pearls.

Sherrie Jenkins served as maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Mary Katherine Black, Betsy Boerner, April Kilpatrick, Kelli King, Amy Palmer, Kerri Taylor, and Linda Thigpen. They wore two-piece bronze-colored ensembles with collared blouses featuring pearl and rhinestone buttons and three-quarter-length, French-cuffed sleeves.

Their bouquets were hand-tied clusters of cream colored flowers. Each bridesmaid selected a favorite flower for her own bouquet. The bridal bouquet was a mixture of tulips, roses, gladioli, calla lilies, baby's breath, mums, daisies, and lilies, representative of each bridesmaid's bouquet.

Flower girls were Jaycie Cantrell, Mary Weldon Daniels, Ashtyn Hensley, Emerson Sears, Kate-Brileigh Sears, Sybbie Sears, and Sara Glenn Stevenson, all cousins of the bride. They pulled petals from clusters of daisies.
