Elizabeth Trent Higginbotham & Homer Henry Marshman III

When Bitsy realized she did not want a big wedding, she and Homer unexpectedly eloped on a beach in front of six guests. The bride wore a dress by Rocco Adriano Galluccio and a diamond brooch borrowed from the groom’s maternal grandmother. She carried white roses, peonies, and hydrangeas. After the ceremony, the newlyweds attended an intimate dinner at The Beach Club with the groom’s family and partied at Cucina later that evening. The couple danced to “I Want to Dance with Somebody” by Whitney Houston. A week later, Bill Barbosa photographed Bitsy and Homer at The Colony Hotel, where Bitsy serves as the Special Events Sales Manager. They planned a belated, low-key honeymoon at the Wauwineut in Nantucket, which was canceled due to the coronavirus.
