W Alderman-Deloach
Mr. and Mrs. Pebe Lee Deloach

    Miss Teracie Jane Alderman became the bride of Mr. Pebe Lee Deloach in a sacred ceremony at the Statesboro First Baptist Church on Saturday, May 21, 2011. The Reverend Dr. John Waters officiated at the double-ring ceremony. Elder Steve Taylor welcomed guests and offered the opening prayer.  The wedding was directed by Cathy Hutchison of Statesboro.
    The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Ronald (Sharon) Alderman of Statesboro. She is the granddaughter of Mrs. Myrtice Sconyers of Swainsboro. Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Leo (Eileen) Deloach of Evans County are parents of the groom.
    Music was provided by Shelia McKee, organist; Jay Sconyers, trumpeter, cousin of the bride; Ron Price, Brittany Davis and Timothy Alderman, brother of the bride, were vocalists.
    The front doors of the church were decorated with initial wreaths of green moss tied with white and pink ribbons. Outside rails were adorned with white bows and greenery. A table in the vestibule of the church held the bride's book and a candle in memory of the bride's and groom's grandparents. A collage picture of the bride and groom's engagement pictures adorned the table. Hope Laughter and Mandy Fortune handed out programs and greeted guests.
    Centering the pulpit was a white column holding a large antique ornate bird cage. A beautiful arrangement of various shades of pink roses and other summer flowers in pink and white decorated the top of the bird cage. The bird cage was filled with the same flowers with cascading greenery. On either side of the arrangement were candle trees holding white burning candles with greenery entwined through the branches. Completing the setting were summer ferns and palms. A unity cross was placed on a table near the center that was used during the ceremony that symbolized the two becoming one in Christ.
    Given in marriage by her parents and escorted by her father, the bride wore a strapless ivory royal duchess satin gown featuring a modified sweetheart neckline, embroidered and delicately beaded. The inverted Basque waistline sat above the full circular ball gown with a chapel-length train, both were embroidered and delicately beaded. Her veil featured a scalloped edge with crystals. She also wore an ivory rhinestone ribbon headband. The bride carried a bouquet of white peonies, pink spray roses and pink titanic roses with rhinestone accents, tied with a crystal and lace embossed handkerchief. Attached to the bouquet was her mother's Bible, carried at her parents' wedding in 1971. Her dress was her something new and a gift from her Grandmother Sconyers.
    Flavia Blair served as maid of honor. Bridesmaids included Julie McCurdy, Kimberly Rollins, Dana Jones, Diana Deloach, sister-in-law of the groom; Laura Deloach, sister of the groom; and Jamie Land. Bridesmaids wore charcoal strapless floor-length gowns and carried bouquets similar to the bride's.

    They wore black knee-length strapless dresses and carried a single long-stemmed pink titanic rose.
    Marti Woodward, cousin of the bride, and Clairborne Jones served as flower girls. They wore ivory tulle ball gowns with light pink sashes tied at the waist. They carried satin covered baskets accented with rhinestones.
    Mr. Deloach chose his father as his best man. Groomsmen were Timothy Alderman, brother of the bride; Chance Deloach, brother of the groom; Tyler Deloach, brother of the groom; Jason Kennedy, Barrett Van Meter and Aaron Rushing. Ethan Blair served as ring bearer.

    The bride's parents hosted a reception in the William H. Perry Fellowship Hall. Directing the reception was Sue Colson. The focal point was three antique bird cages that centered the food table. Beautiful arrangements of various shades of pink roses and other summer flowers in pink and white decorated the top of each cage. The cages were filled with the same flowers and cascading greenery. Guests enjoyed a variety of hors d'oeuvres along with iced tea and punch. Table centerpieces were silver trumpet vases filled with curly willow and pink flowering branches with hanging crystals and birds' nests filled with white feathers and pink rhinestone monogrammed eggs.
    As guests departed, they were invited to visit the candy table, where crystal containers held a variety of candies and boxes tied with pink ribbons filled with a chocolate-covered peanut cluster. Pink candy bags were provided so that guests could fill a bag to take home.
    The bridal couple left under a shower of bubbles in an antique Cadillac limo. After a honeymoon cruise and a trip to Disney World, they are making their home in Statesboro.
