McNeel-Biglane Wedding Announcement
Joanna Katherine Biglane of Jackson, MS, and Jason Connor McNeel of Ridgeland, MS were married Saturday, November 7, 2009, at 5:30 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church in Natchez with Dr. Robert Gnann Schwanebeck, Jr. and the Reverend Dennis Carl Flach officiating.
The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Robert Biglane of Vidalia, and the granddaughter of Mrs. J. Delane Thornhill and the late Mr. Thornhill of Vidalia, and of Mr. Noland Edward Biglane and the late Mrs. Biglane of Natchez. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jason Niles McNeel of Louisville, MS, and the grandson of Mr. and Mrs. William Terrence Clark of Jackson and the late Mr. and Mrs. Harry Brantley McNeel, Sr., of Louisville.
The bride was given in marriage by her father, Patrick Robert Biglane. She wore a Marisa gown of ivory silk satin which was fashioned with a strapless, sweetheart neckline embellished with re-embroidered Alencon lace closed in the back with covered buttons. A bias band of satin defined the empire bodice from which fell a gored skirt and chapel train, edged with a deep border of Alencon lace. She wore an heirloom bridal veil of lace designed and hand-made in Brussels, Belgium, in the late 1800's. This was worn by four generations of the family of Jeanne Edwards, close friend of the bride's mother. The bride also wore her late grandmother's pearl and diamond earrings, complemented by a pearl bracelet that was a wedding gift from the groom. The bride carried a romantic European clutch bouquet with a classically elegant feel, composed of white and cream blooms including old-fashioned hydrangea, antique white ranunculus and fragrant roses with hints of soft blush and pale greens. The bouquet was finished with double faced ivory satin and closed with pearl pins.
Attending the bride at the ceremony were Suzanne Mills Burke of Shreveport; Caroline Lees Edwards of Brandon, MS; Zelma Murray Frederick and Lee Waycaster Jackson, both of Baton Rouge; Melinda Carol Jett of Starkville, MS; Carol Savant Loy of Vidalia; Anne Caroline McNeel of Starkville, sister of the groom; Sarah Davidson Walker of Fayetteville, AR; and Elizabeth Waters Wooden of Shreveport.
The bridesmaids wore black cocktail dresses, each a personal choice. Their bouquets were designed to be reminiscent of the bridal look, being clustered and gathered and composed of hydrangea and ranunculus with gentle lifts of blush and cream roses to emulate the antique European feel. The classic style was completed with soft ivory ribboning.
Groomsmen included the groom's father and best man, Jason Niles McNeel; Patrick Robert Biglane, Jr., brother of the bride, of Starkville, MS; Graham Carr Calvert of Birmingham, AL; James Otis Hearnsberger, Jr., of Starkville; William Alvin Massey III of Brandon, MS; Taylor Brantley McNeel, brother of the groom, of Ocean Springs, MS; Dusty Lee Rhoads of Flowood, MS; Thomas Earl Simmonds of Starkville; and Thomas Brent Tyler of Ridgeland, MS.
Mothers of the bride and groom and grandmothers all carried a French tussie-mussie bouquet composed of the wedding florals and colors and finished with antique white satin,
Readers during the ceremony were Kathryn Marie Marchesini, cousin of the bride, of Chapel Hill, NC, and Jessica Banahan McNeel, sister-in-law of the groom, of Ocean Springs, MS. Music for the ceremony was provided by Jeanie Lanneau, organist; Anton Zholondz and Vera Zholondz, violinists; and Becky Stephens, soloist. Wedding directors were Leigh Anderson and Karen Foley, both close family friends.
The church sanctuary was resplendent with the soft antique cream colors and flowers that accented the beautiful surroundings. Foliage and floral clusters accented the long aisle, repeating the soft silhouettes of the bouquets carried by the wedding party. The altar was gently adorned with soft, cascading designs composed of the same soft white, cream, and blush blooms found throughout the candlelit sanctuary. The exterior church steps were lined with glowing wax illuminarias, and accented with soft satin ribboning which secured gatherings of natural foliages, hydrangea, and roses. The two large, stately doors were accented with natural foliage wreaths and tucks of the antique cream blooms used throughout the ceremony.
The reception held on the grounds of the antebellum home, Dunleith, welcomed guests with flanks of wax illuminaria lining the historic steps and pathways. The candlelit setting lent to the Southern feel of the home while the interior was aglow with large candelabra floral designs accenting the bountiful food stations throughout the home. As guests found themselves on the courtyard beyond the house, they were transformed to a magical sky of Japanese lanterns glowing softly under the stars through the crystal clear canopy of the outdoor tent. The foliage and botanicals filling the tiers of the wrought iron fountain were complemented with floating floral clusters.
After a wedding trip to The Royal Plantation in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, the couple is at home in Ridgeland, MS.
