Makenzie wore a beautiful full-length, fit and flare Berta gown constructed with a corset type bodice and beaded spaghetti straps. The gown, ivory in color, was constructed of double French alenceon and guipure lace with an exaggerated cathedral style train. Hand beaded pearls lined the bodice to give the dress a unique finish to its amazing structure. It was covered with lace and pearls. The long, flowing veil was a custom Erica Koesir. She kept with the tradition of something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Makenzie had a piece of lace from her mother's wedding dress wrapped around her bouquet, the wedding dress was new, she borrowed the promise ring Clay's mother was given by Kenny Fuller when she was 16 years old, and the soles of Makenzie's high heel shoes were blue.
