Matron of honor was Cathy Walker. Bridesmaids were Jessica Shell, a cousin of the groom; Audry Phillip, Megan Howell, Marie Valeruz and Lisa Wright, who wore short strapless dresses of Kelly green cotton sateen, and carried bouquets of flowers in fall shades of purple, brown, orange and yellow.

The flower girls were Sophie and Estelle Valeruz, who wore soft white ankle-length dresses trimmed in antique lace, and carried baskets of rose petals.

The groom chose his father, Brown Moseley, to be his best man. Ushers were Reese Moseley, brother of the groom; Chase Ferguson, Brad Hardekopf, Ryan Cabbage and Austin Haynes.

The guests were seated at the beach on white benches adorned with pebbles and white orchids as Dr. Larry Tyson, violinist, provided nuptial music.

The bride’s mother wore a semi-formal navy and gray tea-length ensemble, while the groom’s mother was attired in a semi-formal champagne and black tea-length ensemble. Both mothers carried a single deep purple calla lily.

The reception, given by the Blasers, was held at Rosemary Beach. Decorations were in purple, green and white, with lanterns strung across the pool and vases of flowers and candles lined the pool and gazebo area.

The wedding cake was a traditional four-tiered cake trimmed with delicate pearls. Fresh orchids and calla lilies decorated the tables.

Following a wedding trip to St. Thomas and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the couple is at home in Atlanta, where he is employed as the men’s golf coach at Kennesaw State University. The new Mrs. Moseley is an event coordinator with Marriott’s Waverly Renaissance Hotel.
