Madeline Ann Cullins and Andrew Bright Vernon were united in holy matrimony on October 26, 2019, at Christ the King Catholic Church. Monsignor Donald F. Zimmerman officiated the ceremony.
The bride is the daughter of Mary Sue and Mark Cullins of University Park and the granddaughter of Dr. Max Henry Faykus of Victoria, Texas.
The groom is the son of Ms. Debbie Vernon of Fort Worth, Texas, and Mr. Robert Vernon of Roanoke, Virginia.
For her wedding dress, the bride wore a couture gown designed for her by Patti Flowers of Dallas. The ivory silk gown with an overlay of imported French Alencon lace featured an off the shoulder neckline that graced her shoulders and framed her face. The fitted bodice and soft A-line silhouette were detailed with tiny buttons extending down the back to the train. The slipper length hem with a double scalloped lace edge swept to a court length train. To compliment her gown, the bride wore an ivory silk illusion veil extending past the dress’s length.
Assisting the bride as maid of honor was the bride’s sister, Katherine Cullins. Her bridesmaids included Alexandra Cullins, Katherine Campbell, Isabelle Emmons, Ellen Perkins, Caroline Prescott, Meredith Warren, Lindsey Reipen, Rebecca Vernon, and Emily Vanderstraaten. Lea Edwards, Julia Espanier, Allison Green, and Allison Ratner were members of the house party.
Attending the groom as Best Man was Collin Bird. His groomsmen included Daniel Cullins, Josh Tatum, Mark Davidovich, Daniel Dempsey, Ryan Goins, Alex Leonard, James Porter, Ryan Samuels, and Chris Silva. Ross Mulford and Thomas West served as ushers.
A reception at the Dallas Country Club followed the wedding ceremony. Guests were entertained by the Taylor Pace Orchestra and by the groom with his band, The Tennessee Tallboys.
