Sarah Emily Wax and Jeremy Dale Nicholas were married Saturday, Dec. 16, 2000, in a candlelight ceremony at First United Methodist Church in Starkville, with the Rev. Bill Beavers officiating.
The bride is the daughter of Charles and Nancy Wax of Starkville. She is the granddaughter of Lorene Wax of Booneville, the late John Wax and the late Harris and Emmalee Holland of Columbus.

Music was provided by Nora Sills, organist; Diane Ford, violinist; Tammy Miles and Twyla Hurst, vocalists; and Lauren Zumwalt, pianist.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of white satin. The fitted bodice accented with intricate beadwork and pearls featured cap sleeves and a scooped neckline. The bodice fell onto a Basque waistline from which flowed a full cathedral-length train accented by beadwork. Her cathedral-length veil of illusion was edged with satin. A headpiece of rhinestones and pearls accented the two-layer veil. She carried a nosegay bouquet of white roses, stephanotis and larkspur.
