David and I sat up in the church balcony in order to be able to see better and get good pictures. Rich played bass before and during the ceremony so I was glad for my escort. After getting up to the balcony and getting settled, my escort, David, abandoned me. Our friend Abigail had decided to join us upstairs since her husband would be playing guitar and sing during the service. So David went and sat next to her.
Melissa was a beautiful bride. She wore a very elegant gown and the bridesmaids dresses were beautiful.
The couple incorporated their families well into different aspects of the service. Melissa has a large extended family that live in the area and we have gotten to know them well.
The couple will see many changes in the next few months. First their marriage then in the new year Tim will begin his career in the military as a chaplain.
