Mary Katherine Stone marries Andrew Jonathan Bouldin

Mary Katherine Stone and Andrew Jonathan Bouldin married in June at the Cathedral of the Incarnation with Deacon Thales Finchum officiating. The bride is the daughter of John and Mary Stone, and the groom is the son of Donald and Karen Bouldin of Brentwood.

Escorted by her father and accompanied by bagpipes, the bride wore her sister’s strapless silk shantung gown made and redesigned by Maria Elena Bishop of Romantic Creations. Her sisters, Lily Tippins Stone Kitchin and Elizabeth Cornelius Stone, served as matron of honor and maid of honor, respectively. Bridesmaids were Molly Willett Nielsen, Lauren Jane Willett, Callie Flowers Casteel, Virginia Cole Parham, Anne Pate Hobson and Sara Elizabeth Bergeron.

The groom’s father served as his best man. Groomsmen were Charles Campbell Brewer, William Clark Brewer, First Lieutenant Rankin Anderson Clinton IV, Paul James Levy, Levi Bowman Crabtree, John Michael Capps and Hunter Headen Mize. James Leggett Kitchin was an usher. Margaret Becker Swann, James Michael O’Shaughnessey and Alexander David O’Shaughnessey greeted the guests. Readers were Margaret Taylor Wright and Melinda Callaway Higgins.

A reception followed at Belle Meade Country Club where floral designer Anne Trabue decorated the ballroom using vines and flowers from the gardens of family and friends. Mary Katherine and Andrew cut the wedding cake with his family sword. Familiar Faces provided the music for dancing—and the limbo.

The newlyweds left the reception in the rumble seat of Martin and Anne Marie McNamara’s vintage Packard. After a wedding trip to St. Lucia Island, the couple returned to Nashville where Andrew works with Clayton Associates.

The bride is a graduate of Harpeth Hall and The University of the South at Sewanee and received a master’s in education from Belmont. The groom, a graduate of Christ Presbyterian Academy and The University of Tennessee, received his M.B.A. from the Owen Graduate School of Management.
