Janet Lynn Guill, daughter of Randy and Joyce Guill, and John Matthew Deal, son of William and Doris Deal, tied the knot in an outdoor wedding ceremony at their home on Sunday October 10, 2021 in South Boston . Reverend Clinton McKinney performed the double ring ceremony.
The alley was dotted with rose petals in jewel tones. Fall plants in assorted colors adorned the sides of the aisle with tree trunk benches for guests on either side. The altar was covered with red roses and white flowers. There were unity candles, memory candles, and a family unity puzzle placed on the altar.
The bride wore an ivory satin gown with a beaded bodice and an embroidered white tulle train. She was carrying a bouquet of red and white roses tied with jewel-toned ribbons.
Cassie Snead, Anna Lewis, Christina Reagan, Wendy Toone and Kelsey Deal were bridesmaids wearing long, jewel-toned dresses. Caroline Moon, Peyton Buchanan, Kynley Buchanan, Brooklyn Matthews and Cate Moon served as bridesmaids wearing satin and tulle dresses and carrying baskets with jewel-colored petals. Nicholas Deal, Aubrey Buist, Cameron Reagan, Billy Deal and Austin Moon were the groomsmen wearing navy pants, white button-down shirts, suspenders and bow ties in jewel tones to match the bridesmaids. Ring bearers Andrew Moon, Ashton Reagan, Noah Toone and Elijiah Reagan wore outfits to match the groomsmen.
Ten candles were lit in memory of married brothers Rodney Deal and Timmy Deal, as well as in memory of their eight grandparents.
After the ceremony, they made a brief trip to Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. A honeymoon is planned during the holidays.
