Mr. & Mrs. Stan Akins - photo by Special
    Sarah Harter became the bride of Stan Akins during a 5 p.m. ceremony held on March 24, 2007, at the First United Methodist Church in Dublin, Ga. The Rev. Richard Lanning, uncle of the bride, officiated.
    The bride is the daughter of R.D. and Kim Harter of Dublin and is the granddaughter of Dickie Herring Harter and the late William Petrie Harter of Albany, Ga., and Darrell Wayne Jackson of Elgin, S.C., and the late Mary Jackson Fowler of Ft. Gaines, Ga.
    The groom is the son of Dennis Akins and Cathy King, both of Statesboro, and is the grandson of Maxine Quarles Cooley and the late Charles Alvin Cooley of Statesboro, Dorothy Wilma Akins and the late Robert Eason Akins Sr. of Statesboro.
    Given in marriage by her parents, R.D. and Kim Harter, the bride wore an ivory, satin gown. The bodice created a beautiful, modified basque waste, adorned with silver embroidery, crystal and pearl to coordinate with her headpiece. Satin, hand-pleated cap sleeves, creating a delicate neckline, were a customized addition to coordinate with the satin train of the gown. Box pleats accented the chapel-length train that was trench bustled for the reception. Her fingertip veil
revealed the plunging V-line of the back of the gown.
    Daisy Harter Gay was matron of honor. Bridesmaids were Stephanie Jean Akins, Laura Curry Cosgray, Jessica George Horsley, Leah Flora Jacob and Meredith Frances Taylor. Caitlin Taylor Akins was junior bridesmaid.
    William Morrow Avra served as the groom’s best man. Groomsmen were Jeremy O’Neal Gantt, Anthony Michael Groover, Brandon Allen Jones, Jefferey Alan May and Zachery Ivan Sneed.
    Following the ceremony, the bride’s parents hosted a reception at the Dublin Country Club.
    The couple honeymooned in Riviera Maya, Mexico, and now resides in Statesboro.
