Susan Walker and Clinton Willmore united in marriage

Mt. Vernon — Susan Lee Ann Walker and Clinton Scott Willmore were united in marriage on May 5, 2012, at five o’clock in the evening by Tracy Thomas at Woodlawn Christian Church in Woodlawn. Susan is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roger Walker of Woodlawn and Clinton is the son of Mrs. Debbie and Mr. Mike Moehn of Mt. Vernon and Mr. Don and Mrs. Kathy Willmore of Bonnie.

The bride wore a beautiful Alfred Angelo imported white strapless organza a-line gown adorned with metallic embroidery thread accenting the pearls, beads and sequins. Covered buttons down the back of the gown featured a busted chapel-length train on the dress. The bride’s choice of colors for her wedding were fuschia with black and white damask. Susan’s wedding bouquet consisted of beautiful fuschia roses with dainty white stargazers, accented with black and white damask ribbon with a touch of organza fuschia ribbon and pearl beads wrapped around the stems of the bouquet.

After a short video presentation of the couple’s engagement was shown, the mothers of the bride and groom prepared the sand foundation for the sand ceremony.

The matron of honor was the bride’s sister, Julie Bullard. Bridesmaids were Nicole Shelton, cousin of the bride and Karen Willmore and Kelley Wilmore, sisters of the groom. The best man was Dusten Brown, friend of the groom. Kyle Willmore, brother of the groom, Justin Mayberry, friend of the groom and Jeff Bullard, brother-in-law of the bride, were groomsmen. Joanna Musgrave, friend of the bride, maintained the guest register, and Jenny McClure, cousin of the bride, attended the gift register. The groom selected Zack Bullard, nephew of the bride, and Chad Miner, cousin of the groom, as ushers. Programs and wedding favors were passed out by the nephews of the bride, Jeffrey and William Bullard.

Juanita Likens, long-time friend of the bride, was the pianist. The bride’s brother, Roger Walker Jr., played Johann Pachelbel’s “Canon in D” on his classical guitar for the wedding processional.

A dinner and dance reception was held at Green Hills Golf Club following the ceremony with music provided by “Summer’s End Entertainment.” Photos were taken by Mike Hockett, owner of “Caught up in the Moment Photography.”

Honored guests were the bride’s grandmothers, Mrs. Vera Shelton and Iva Walter, and the groom’s grandmother, the late Mildred Minier. A candle was lit in memory of the bride’s late grandfathers, David F. “Shorty” Shelton, and Ernest “Red” Walker, the groom’s grandmother, Georgia Willmore, and grandfathers Robert “Pete” Minier and Francis Willmore.

Susan is a 2004 graduate of Woodlawn High School and is a certified fitness trained of the ISSA of Carpentaria, Calif. Clinton is a 2000 graduate of Mt. Vernon Township High School. Susan and Clinton both attended Rend Lake College and are employed by Walgreens Distribution Center.
