Wed Kicklighter Sittle
Michelle (Kicklighter) and Christopher Sittle
Michelle Ashley Kicklighter and Christopher Ashley Sittle exchanged wedding vows on June 9, 2007 at Harmony United Methodist Church in Glennville.
The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Danny Kicklighter of Glennville.
Mr. and Mrs. Brett McCorkle of Hinesville, and Mr. and Mrs. Von Sittle of Ludowici are the parents of the groom.
The Rev. Truett Leveritt officiated the double-ring ceremony in the candlelit sanctuary.
Tall, white columns with arrangements of reverse proportion of deep purple larkspur, purple hydrangeas, blue bird roses, lavender fugi accented with green fugis, green billy buttons, and peacock feathers adorned the sanctuary.  
The choir loft was filled with eight-foot cathedral candles, while the pews were flanked with silver silk scarves and purple dendrobium orchids.
Music was provided by pianist Pat Tatum and vocalist Sherry Long, who also sang “You Raised Me Up” and “I Will Be Here.”
As a surprise and expression of his love for the bride, her father requested the solo performance of “I Loved Her First” by Neil DeLoach.
Maria Ellis greeted the guests as they registered. Sophie Burgess and Tatum Blitch, cousins of the bride, were program attendants.
Given in marriage by her parents, the bride, escorted by her father, proceeded to “Trumpet Voluntary.”
The bride was radiant, wearing a strapless Japanese satin gown that featured a basque waist, a sweetheart neckline, and an exquisite deep V back that plunged to the waist. The bodice was encrusted with bugle beads, crystals, and sequins.  The A-line skirt featured a front-center floral pattern set above a band of scattered sequins and crystal beads. The semi-cathedral train was embellished with a matching floral pattern with sequins and crystal beads.
The bride’s ornate tiara gave way to a fingertip veil that was trimmed in crystal beads. She carried a European hand-tied bouquet of purple lisianthus, sterling silver roses, purple dendrobium orchids and green cymbidium orchids.
Courtney Durrence was maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Hannah Athan, Evie Cashen, Sydney Dean, Shelly Lovell, Jessica Sittle, sister of the groom; and Amanda Woods.
The attendants wore an elegant strapless design in deep satin purple. The bodice featured a flattering overlapping tucked pattern that flowed into an A-line gown. Each young lady carried a hand-tied bouquet of blue bird roses with silver accents and ribbon.
Jayla Durrence, Mackenzie Durrence and Laney Mae Kicklighter were flower girls.  Their dresses were of white satin with an empire waist accented with wide deep satin purple sashes.
The flower girls wore halos made with fresh greenery and miniature florals completed their angelic appearance. Baskets of blue bird rose petals were carried.
Garrett McCorkle served as his brother’s best man.
Groomsmen were Brian Coleman, Travis Crowley, Justin Kicklighter, brother of the bride; Jake Rozier, Garrett Smith and Justin Thrift.
Master Brady Goode was the ring bearer.
