Doctors Amanda Rose Burton and Leroy Brown "Bo" Vaughan Jr. were united in marriage in a seven o'clock ceremony on September 26, 2009, at the Historic Temple Museum in Brookhaven.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. John Price Burton of Brookhaven and Mrs. and Mrs. Leroy Brown Vaughan of Richmond, Virginia. Grandparents of the bride are the late Mr. and Mrs. Selmer Price Burton and the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry Eugene Krone, all of Jackson. Grandparents of the groom are Mr. and Mrs. John Fawcett Clark of Williamsburg, Virginia, and the late Mr. and Mrs. C. Porter Vaughan Jr. of Richmond, Virginia.

The candlelight ceremony was officiated by Rev. Greg Warnock and directed by Sidney Rials Tare. Nuptial music was provided by Nancy Bateman, cellist, and Rachel Reese, violinist Vocalists were Molly Grace Crisler, accompanied on the piano by William Julius Crisler III and Elliott Thomas Everitt on the guitar, cousins of the bride, and Gena K. Everitt, aunt of the bride. The bride's proxy was Dr. Amelia Purser Bailey.

The bride, escorted by her father, wore a vintage-inspired couture gown by Allure. The ivory strapless gown featured a gently ruched bodice of silk taffeta accented by a deep V-back and covered buttons. Intricate floral motifs of organza and ribbon detailed the A-line skirt and chapel-length train. A cathedral-length veil of ivory tulle and a vintage floral hairpiece completed her look.

She carried a hand-tied bouquet of white roses, dahlias, and stock accented by an English lace handkerchief, a replica of the one Princess Diana carried in her wedding, purchased by the bride's mother in London years ago. Eva Crisler, the bride's aunt, hand-embroidered the bride's first initial in blue on the handkerchief, and it was attached to the bouquet with an antique cameo brooch, a wedding day gift from the bride's parents.


The circa-1850 chapel's altar was accented by a grand urn with a massive arrangement of bells of Ireland, white roses, hydrangeas, stock and dahlias. Antique New Orleans urn arrangements flanked the rear doors; all were created "By George."

The bride's sisters, Shelly Cloud and Emily Waterloo, served as matrons of honor. Honorary bridesmaids were Sunday Sones Holmes, Sicily Sones Green, Margaret Eloise Crisler, and Molly Grace Crisler cousins of the bride.

The couple exited the chapel amid a shower of rose petals and were whisked away to the reception in a horse-drawn white carriage.

The antebellum home Belle Rosen was the perfect setting for the vintage-inspired Southern reception, which featured an ivory and white stacked wedding cake embellished with white and ivory chocolate cameos, scrolls, and lace designs with the couple's new monogram. The cake was topped with white orchids and displayed on a handmade table covering featuring a handmade tulle skirt created by the bride's mother. The bride's cake was placed in the gazebo beneath an antique crystal chandelier placed there for this occasion. Tented dining featured rows of tables accented with chocolate brown silk runners with the couple's monogram. Cylinders filled with roses, dahlias, bells of Ireland, and curly willow were the centerpieces, along with nosegays of lime buttons and baby's breath in mint julep cups. Guests enjoyed Southern delicacies prepared by Annie P. Goodies. A double-tiered ice sculpture bowl on the lawn featured oysters on the half shell, jumbo boiled shrimp, imported European olives, and Annie P's famous cheese ring. Guests also enjoyed jambalaya grits, roasted new potatoes, green bean bundles, carved roast beef, and arugula salad with cranberries and goat cheese tossed with a citrus vinaigrette dressing. In honor of the groom's home state, Virginia ham biscuits were served, and the groom's table featured individual pecan pies prepared by Jeanette Edwards with a banjo centerpiece in honor of the groom, who is also a musician.


Providing grass-roots country music was Nash Street, winner of the 2008 Colgate Country Music Showdown. Jenny Lynn Photography and Robert Smith Videography captured the moments of the evening.

Guests typed notes to the couple on vintage Underwood typewriters, and chocolate-covered apples were given as favors with the slogan "An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away." The couple received a sparkler send-off as friends and family helped light their way.

A Southern buffet to celebrate the couple's engagement in her hometown was given at the home of Bill and Theresa Sones and hosted by friends and family. A dinner party and gift card shower was given by friends and family at the home of Cris and Eva Crisler in Clinton.

A wedding day brunch for friends, family, and out-of-town guests was held at the home of Rob and Nancy Fisher. Also hosting were Shannon and Robin Aker and Mark and Lorin Lewis. On the eve of the wedding the groom's parents hosted a dinner at Dixie Springs Cafe for the wedding party, family, and friends.
