Davis and Morgan Wed



Joanne L. Davis and John W. Morgan were joined by family and friends on Saturday evening, June 11, 2011 and united in marriage.  The ceremony began with a carriage ride down the drive of the Sam Davis Home in Smyrna, TN.  Terry Givens and his beautiful spotted stallion from Woodbury made a graceful presentation of Joanne with her dad wearing her mother's lace dress re-styled for her.  As guest arrived, they followed a path of white horseshoes to the ceremony for the couple.  

              
  
After a lovely outdoor ceremony at the beautiful historic setting, the couple’s guest enjoyed a lovely dinner served by Jordan’s Catering, cake by Julia’s Bakery, and Maggie Moo ice cream to top it off! The couple then left for their wedding night stay at the Opryland Hotel, and hit the road for their honeymoon in Gulf Shores, AL.
 
Joanne is the daughter of Joe and Shirley Davis of Lebanon, TN.  She enjoys showing her WGC Jose Quervo Gold and was a former high point achiever in WHOA, THWBEA and PWHAT on her WC Champion Champagne for Charlie in their versatility programs growing up. Joanne is the Vice President of Operations with First Community Mortgage in Murfreesboro, TN.
 
John is the son of the late Ricky Morgan Franklin, TN, and Cathy Lynn of Waverly, TN. John is the owner/operator of J. W. Morgan Custom Welding in Shelbyville, TN. Although John is new to the walking horse industry, he’s already caught the bug! On any given weekend you may find John & Joanne showing their favorite trail pleasure horse, Heart Attack’s Classy Lady, at various events. John, Joanne and son Cyrus now reside together in Unionville TN.
