Wedding vows were exchanged by Amy Kathryn Hilliard and Alfred Popkess White IV, who goes by Kes, at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, at Grandeur House. The Rev. Greg Schick of St. James United Methodist Church, officiated.

The ceremony site featured an arbor decorated with greenery, white hydrangeas, wax flower and pink roses. Music was by soloist Robert Frost, cousin of the bride, and Julia Frost, aunt of the bride.

Given in marriage by her parents, the bride wore a natural silk A-line gown with a sleeveless bodice and pleated cathedral-length skirt. She carried an all-white bouquet of hydrangeas, roses, peonies, Queen Ann's lace, dusty miller and silver dollar eucalyptus.

Long tables were lined with Italian ruscus and seeded eucalyptus interspersed with small bud vases. The bride and groom's first dance was to music sung by Steven Frye, cousin of the bride. Music for the rest of the evening was by The Party Jammers of Memphis.

The bride attended the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, and has a doctor of pharmacy degree from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
