Watson - Stone

Taylor Leigh Watson and Phillip Eugene Stone were united in marriage at 3pm, May 30, 2015 at Concord Baptist Church in Clermont, Ga.



The bride is the daughter of Valeria and Heath Watson of Jasper.  She is the granddaughter of Virginia and Buzz Whitacre of Jasper and Beth and John Keown of Florida.

The groom’s sister, Ashley Stone of Lawrenceville, stood beside her brother as best woman.  The groom’s lifelong friend, Jeremy Milton of Conyers, was best man.

A reception followed the ceremony at The Clermont Venue, Clermont’s historic hotel.   The charming atmosphere of the beautifully restored main floor of the hotel was enhanced by photographs of the bride and groom growing up, displayed amid antique trunks and suitcases and flowers arranged in a variety of treasured family vases and teacups, a nod to the couple’s love of all things vintage.

The groom’s parents gave a rehearsal dinner at Waters Mill in Dahlonega on the eve of the wedding.  The delicious Southern meal was served to family and wedding party on the expansive front porch of the Waters family home.

Following a honeymoon to Nashville and Tybee Island, a gift from the bride’s dear family friend, Brenda Shirley, the couple resides in Murrayville, Ga.
