The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. David Wilkins Sr. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jon McMurray.
Jenna was stunning in her ivory dupioni silk gown designed by Justin Alexander. Her bridal ensemble was completed by a handmade jacket and veil that was created by Colleen Hopwood of Bella Couture using Jenna’s mother’s Eve of Milady wedding gown. Her jacket was adorned with delicate pearls and featured scallop edges and a keyhole back. Her veil was made of silk tulle and the organza and Alencon lace train from her mother’s gown. She wore a sparkling Swarovski crystal belt to accentuate her waist. Jenna’s gown was transformed for the reception by adding the matching silk peplum designed by Justin Alexander. The bride carried a bouquet of dusty millers, white calla lilies, roses and ranunculus beautifully arranged by Southern Veranda in Fairhope.
