Sheppard - Genobles
Rebekka Lane Sheppard, of Blacksburg, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Christopher Lane Sheppard, of Blacksburg, married Allen Blake Genobles, son of Mr. and Mrs. Regie Allen Genobles, during a May 11, 2019 ceremony at The Barn at Poplar Springs, in Moore. Rev. C. Vernon Craig officiated.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride was attired in an A-line ball gown embellished with light beading, cinched by a crystal belt. Complementing her ensemble, she wore a veil edged in crystals and carried soft pink roses amid white hydrangeas, which also decorated the venue.
The bridal attendants included Maura Sheppard, as her maid of honor and Brooke Crain, Lauren Harrison, Linda Benitez, and LeeAnn Maynor, as bridesmaids. Their bouquets of soft pink roses and white hydrangeas brought contrasting highlights to their floor-length gowns of black.
The groom’s attendants were his father as his best man, and Seth Crain, Justin Brown, Asheton Hinton and Daniel Harrison, as groomsmen.
A reception, also held at The Barn, offered guests a cake enhanced by piped roses along the bottom tier. The top tier featured a smooth design of white icing edged with pink ribbon.
The parents of the groom hosted a rehearsal dinner at River Falls Plantation Clubhouse following the wedding rehearsal on May 10.
