The groom’s daughters, Madeline Borden, 14, and Sophie Borden, 11, served as attendants. Reverend Dr. Jim Truesdell of South Highland Presbyterian Church officiated.
The bride is a librarian who loves dogs, and the groom is a veterinarian who collects books.
Amanda graduated from Judson College in 1992 and received her master’s degree in library service from the University of Alabama in 1993. She has been employed by the Hoover Public Library for 12 years and currently serves as assistant library director.
