Fredricka “Freddy” Ann Wolfe and Brian David Cary were united in marriage at Winding Creek Farm and Wedding Barn, Hamptonville, about a year ago. The Rev. Stevie and the Rev. Katrina Bullock officiated at the afternoon, outdoor ceremony.

The bride is the daughter of Fredrick Wolfe and the late Bonnie Wolfe of North Wilkesboro. She is employed by Tyson Foods Inc., as the complex nurse manager.

The groom is the son of Bill and Barbara Cary of Louisburg. He is employed by McNeill Nissan of Wilkesboro.

Given in marriage and escorted by her father, the bride wore a floor length gown featuring a tulle overlay and a sleeveless, lace, form-fitted corset bodice. The back of the gown was bustled, given the allure of a 1930s style. She wore a double layer veil with lace and beaded trim. The bride carried a bouquet of fresh stargazer lilies, dahlias and flowing greenery. She also wore diamond earrings and a diamond tennis bracelet belonging to her mother.

Matron of honor was LeeAnn Walker of Jonesville. Maid of honor was Savannah Cary of Ashe County, daughter of the groom. Ila Jean Matney of Wilkesboro was flower girl.

Mark Ponzi of Boonville served as best man. Groomsman was Joseph Cary of Ashe County, son of the groom.

Anthony Dezern of Wilkesboro attended the guest register, where a picture of the bride’s mother and memorial flowers greeted guests upon their arrival.

Family photos adorned the entranceway to the ceremony, as well as throughout the venue.


Immediately following the ceremony, a reception was held in honor of the bridal couple. Guests were served fried chicken and barbecue, with an array of side dishes. For dessert, banana pudding and carrot cake cupcakes were served.

Homemade pumpkin bread with cream cheese icing, baked by Debbie Childress, friend of the bride, as a gift to the bridal couple, was placed on each table.

The three-tiered wedding cake was a carrot cake with swirled, cream cheese icing, which was placed upon a wooden pedestal. A single wrap of burlap accented the center of the cake. A personalized topper also adorned the cake.

A photo booth was provided for guests to take pictures and leave well wishes for the bridal couple.

Disc jockey Johnnie Gilmore provided music for dancing.

Assisting with the event were Darlene Edwards of Infinity Images; Johnny and Trista Gilmore; Dish Garden Art; Branch Bakery; King’s Restaurant; and the Winding Creek Farm and Barn staff.
