Inside, guests mingled in the Atrium and enjoyed light hors d’ouevres featuring Arnone’s Italian Sausage.  The signature cocktail was a huge hit – ‘world famous’ Yellowhammers from Gallette’s Bar in Tuscaloosa.

The tables in Beeson Hall are beautifully adorned with floral centerpieces by FlowerArt Designs, white satin linens and cashmere satin napkins, and dinner menus hand-written by the bride herself.  Christina also designed the invitations, hand addressed the envelopes, and hand wrote all 432 guest escort cards – she is a very talented calligrapher!
