Lauren Sierra Callahan and Keith Michael Borland were married at 2 p.m. on May 30, 2015 at Cobblestone Crossing in Aragon.
The bride is the daughter of Brett & Kristie Callahan of Cave Spring. The groom is the son of Leslee and Willie Borland of Beaverton, Oregon.
Rev. Tommy Patterson, great uncle of the bride, performed the double ring ceremony in front of a wrought iron arch interwoven with ivy overlooking a pond. Guests sat on bales of hay draped in cloth. During the ceremony, the bride and groom tied three cord representing God, Lauren, and Keith into one whole braid.
The bride, given in marriage by her parents and escorted by her father, chose a champagne lace and sequin corset with a sweet heart neckline. This corset was attached to a white layered ball gown of tulle with the layers forming a train behind the gown. She wore a white miniature top hat and veil. She carried a bouquet of cream and peach roses and baby’s breath.
Musical selections included “Bonfire Heart,” “How Much Will I Love You” and “Happy.”
Blaire Culver of Cedar Bluff, Alabama, and Savanna Orebaugh of Cave Spring, sisters of the bride, Amanda Fielding, cousin of the bride of Anchorage, Alaska, and Angela Chang of Anchorage, Alaska were bridesmaids. They wore belted chocolate knee length full skirts with cream lined sleeveless lace tops. Their brown ankle boots were adorned with lace and beads. They carried bouquets similar to the bride’s.
Drew Borland, brother of the groom of Beaverton, Oregon was best man. Groomsmen were Mitch Williams and Brendan Williams also of Beaverton, Oregon. They wore tan pants with white long sleeve button up shirts, leather suspenders and brown ties. The groomsmen wore boutonnieres hand made by the bride. The groom wore brown pants with a matching vest and a white long sleeve button up shirt. He carried an antique pocketwatch, a gift from the bride, along with a vintage flask in his vest pocket.

Tristan Callahan of Rome, cousin of the bride, was the ring bearer.

The flower girls were carried down the aisle by their mothers and placed in a wooden wagon during the ceremony.
The mother of the bride wore a taupe and cream printed silk knee-length dress. The mother of the groom wore a cream lace ankle length dress with a matching sheer and lace jacket.
Following the ceremony, a cocktail reception took place in the barn on the property. Refreshments included the bride’s cake — a two-tiered hexagon layered pound cake with raspberry filing, covered in a light chocolate icing, decorated in a vintage swirl pattern. The groom’s hexagon-shaped carrot cake covered in cream cheese was also decorated in the same swirl pattern. German Chocolate and Red Velvet Cupcakes were also served.
The night before the wedding, the groom’s parents hosted a rehearsal dinner at a local Mexican restaurant. Other pre-nuptial parties included a bachelorette weekend hosted by Lindsay, Ari, and Hayden Turner, and refreshments on the day of the wedding for the bridal party were provided by Carol Callahan.
After a honeymoon to Savannah, the couple will reside in Beaverton, Oregon.
