Grace Louise Anthony and Keith Wallace Harrelson were married Nov. 22 at First Baptist Church of Birmingham. The Rev. Scott Bowen of Signal Mountain Presbyterian Church officiated the ceremony. A reception followed in the Grand Ballroom of The Club of Birmingham.
The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alan Lee Anthony of Vestavia Hills. She is the granddaughter of Mrs. James Franklin Anthony and the late Mr. Anthony of Trussville and Mr. and Mrs. Winston Eugene Chapman Sr. of Center Point.
The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. James Royal Harrelson of Union City, Tenn. He is the grandson of Mrs. Royal C. Harrelson and the late Mr. Harrelson and the late Mr. and Mrs. William H. McDaniel, all of Oneonta.
Escorted by her father, the bride wore a strapless fit and flared gown by New York designer Jim Hjelm. Ivory, re-embroidered, French Alencon lace over taupe lining created the bodice. Tiers of oyster colored netting began at fingertip and cascaded over the skirt which swept to a chapel length train. Tiny crystals and beadwork framed each layer of the ruffled netting. Completing her ensemble was an ivory veil of illusion which had been worn by her mother. The veil was edged with motifs of ivory French Alencon lace which had been hand-beaded with pearls. She carried a bouquet of peonies, roses, and ranunculus, tied with a monogrammed handkerchief from her late grandfather.
The bride was attended by her cousin, Claire Chapman Swedenburg, of Tallahassee, Fla., as matron of honor.
