Favorite Part of the Wedding Ceremony

The groom's vows were special and unique - he washed the bride's feet as a picture of love and servant-hood in action.


The colors were teal, pink and black. The bridesmaids were an incredible help in planning the wedding decorations, as the bride was planning the wedding from Kansas City.

Our Wedding Songs

The bride walked down the aisle to "Your Love is Strong" by Jon Foreman. The couple's first dance song was "Marry Me" by Train. The combined father/daughter mother/son dance song was "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts.

About The Rings

The bride's engagement ring was her grandmother's (Dorothy Christy), which she wore during 65 years of marriage to her husband, Norval. The bride's wedding band belonged to the groom's mother.


The bride and groom share a love for donuts, so instead of cake, donuts from Rise 'n Roll in Middlebury were served.

Vendor Shout-Out

Many thanks to our DJ, Sam Brown, and photographer, Brittany Nichols (BK Photography).

Honeymoon Destination

The bride and groom went on a honeymoon cruise to the Bahamas.
