BC: October 1, 2011

FC: Jessi and Brad October 1, 2011 Evergreen Park

1: About 370 attended the outdoor ceremony and tent reception at Evergreen Park. It had rained all day Friday; we had the rehearsal in the tent! But Saturday was crisp and clear...but a bit windy.

2: All this preparation... | Jen and Jessi gather wild grapes; an unexpected treat! I made grape juice from them and used it at communion. | Dad built the barnwood wall with old doors from the Lorencz farmstead the Saturday before the wedding...it was a beautiful day!

3: ...became all this ceremony!

4: The Outdoor Sanctuary at Evergreen Park along the Cass River. | Brady waits for guests, then for his turn to walk down the aisle.

5: The girls got ready at Aunt Beth's... ...and then hid in the fifth-wheel we borrowed from Dale Yoder.

6: Andrew Martin escorts the mother of the bride to her seat and the ceremony begins!

7: Madison Krohn, Tessa Severance, the flower girl, and Jelena Prescott. | Justin with Jelena and Madison, the two junior bridesmaids.

8: The Wedding Party | Bouquets were made of baby's breath and yellow mums. | Two new brothers...worked to create the sanctuary!

9: Ben and Whitney, Preston and Becky, Dustin and Rochelle, Jarod and Emily, Kyle and Megan... | Jessi made the boutonnières.

10: Sean and Katie

11: After Katie and Sean, Brad and then Tessa, we all waited as the old doors were closed and the bell rang 6 times. In days long gone, the 6 tolls proclaimed the death of a woman...at this point Jessi Essian is left behind and a new woman enters the opened doors...soon to be Jessi Lynn Severance!

12: The old doors open after the bell tolls revealing Dad and daughter ready to walk the aisle to a new future.

14: Pastor John presided wonderfully over the ceremony, sharing mightily the message of Jesus! The newly wed couple shared communion as happy onlookers listened to Emily and Katie belt out a touching rendition of "The Revelation Song" Randy Brown provided musical accompaniment, while Ryan Badgerow supervised the sound. | OK, it was a bit chilly and windy...we huddled during the ceremony.

15: Jessi's dress belonged to Deb Severance, who allowed her to alter it from the original design

16: They sang so beautifully.

17: Like the sign says, this is the Ceremony
