Down Memory Lane: Our Reception

2001 -- Reception I

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

Although we both lived in Hendersonville, Tennessee, at the time, we got married in Knoxville.  We did this so that we could have a small family wedding.  Betsy was the Associate Minister at a large Methodist church in Hendersonville and she didn’t want to have to make decisions about who in the congregation should be invited and who should not.

‘The Girls’, Betsy’s girlfriends from the Hendersonville church, gave us a reception in the church fellowship hall a few weeks after our wedding.  This allowed members of the Hendersonville church to share in our wedding.

I came across pictures from the reception when I was going through my archives and posting pictures on my photo website.  The collage above includes some of those pictures.  From left to right along the top:  Betsy and I when we arrived at the reception, sampling some of the goodies, and with ‘The Girls’.  On the bottom left we’re sharing some photos from our wedding and honeymoon.  On the bottom right I’m talking with Mom and Dad.

    Pictures allow us to relive the moments, don’t they? I did click over to the other site to see the rest of the images, and they’re all great. Betsy must have had some good friends there in Hendersonville. God knew what He was doing when He brought you two together.

    This is a really nice collage George! I have wondered why the two of you did not get married in her church, now I know! A smart move. When our pastor’s daughter got married, she invited the whole church! Then everyone from her old church. I can’t imagine the mass crowd it would have been.
