On May 5, 2012, April LeAnn Crews and Justin Thomas Odom, both of Hartselle, were united in marriage at the Unity Grove Campground in Pickens County.
April is the daughter of Jeff and Karen Lowry and Bryan and Sherry Crews. She is the granddaughter of Dale and Edith Hammond and the late Mary Ann and Harry Clinton Crews Jr. and is the stepgranddaughter of Sally C. Lowry and great -granddaughter of Ernesteen Hammond.
Justin is the son of Thomas W. and Judith Bennett Odom. He is the grandson of the late Jane Davidson Bennett and Jimmy Stewart Bennett and Joseph Odom.
The bride wore her grandmother Edith’s wedding dress. The dress is fashioned of Chantilly lace over a very full underskirt of tulle ruffles worn over a hoop-tiered skirt. Both bodice and overskirt are of lace, featuring a Sabrina neckline and three quarter overskirt hem in scallops. The scallops continue into the sleeves from back and front at the neckline, joined at their centers to form an open work pattern down to the tapering points. Clusters of underskirts are accented by a similar cluster at the waistline in the back.
