The Reverend Lemae Miller Higgs, friends of the groom, officiated at the service. Nuptial music was provided by Mrs. Tom (Carol) Davidson, friend of the groom, on the piano. Amazing Grace, a favorite hymn of both the bride and groom, was sung by all.

Attending the bride were Mildred Cain, grandmother of the bride; Amanda McIntyre, cousin of the bride; and flower girl, Savannah McDougall, daughter of the groom. Escorting the bride was her father, Cecil McIntyre, who, with all attending parents, presented the couple for marriage.
Best man was C.A. Rust III, borrowed father of the groom; groomsman was Nick McIntyre, brother of the bride, served as usher.
The guest registration table featured tributes to deceased family members. A toast to Mr. and Mrs. Sam McDougall was pronounced by C.A. Rust III. A Bar-B-Q buffet was served poolside.
