The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Wyliss Kemp of Pontotoc. She is the granddaughter of Mr. John Wilson Donahoo and the late Mrs. Bonnie Lynn Donahoo of Isola and the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry Clinton Kemp of Inverness.


The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Larry Elkin Homan of Fulton. He is the grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Elkin Pick Homan of Shannon, and the late Mr. and Mrs. William Louis Kilpatrick Jr. of Fulton.

Nuptial music was provided by the Wedding Festival String Quartet; Charlotte Foster, organ; Mignon Williamson, piano; and Harry Spell, vocalist.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a strapless organza gown of ivory with an overlay of English net and Alencon lace. The veil featured an elbow blusher and cathedral underlay. With her gown, she wore her mother's pearl earrings and necklace.

She carried a bouquet of white stephanotis, gardenias, and cream-colored roses wrapped in ivory ribbon. Tucked beneath the bouquet was the groom's great grandmother's gold bracelet.
