Story Archives: Hackney-Neathery wedding
An evening ceremony at Crockett Point Baptist Church was the setting for the marriage of Lauren Ashley Hackney to Daniel Brent Neathery on April 11, 2009. Minister Ryan Spinks performed the double-ring ceremony. The bride is the daughter of Billy Jo and Johnny Williams, and Doug and Lori Hackney of Winnsboro. The groom is the son of Brent and Amanda Neathery of Delhi and Drexell and the late Stephanie Triplet of Shreveport.
The sanctuary of the church was lit with glowing candles and held colorful arrangements of Gerbera daisies. Acoustic guitarist Zach Wilson provided music for the ceremony. The wedding march was played by Ryan Fulford and soloist Jessi Spinks performed during the lighting of the unity candle.
Given in marriage by her father and stepfather, the bride wore a mermaid-style gown featuring a heart-shaped neckline and fitted bodice. Her chapel-length veil of sheer illusion was scattered with rhinestones and she carried a bouquet of Gerbera daisies created by Sweet Peas.
Stephanie Chapman attended the bride as her maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Kiley Poland, Chelsea Hackney, Jessi Spinks, Laureen Hipp, Cara Watson and Ashley Lockridge. Greyson Williams served as flower girl.

A reception was held for the couple immediately after the ceremony at Twin Oaks Country Club in Winnsboro.
