S: Our Wedding Story
BC: Our journey begins...
1: On Thursday night both of our families came together at Dad and Mom Slingerland for coffee. We also had some help decorating our wedding vehicle - a green Ford Expedition.
2: John and Albert arrived bright and early at Dad and Mom Overbeek to get ready that morning. They also did a little organ playing to calm their nerves.
5: Ruth came over early to do Andrea and my hair. Sierra got ready at home and had her hair done by Auntie Elaine. She met us at church. Mom made sure Jared was all ready in his tuxedo. After the family had their flowers pinned on, we went outside for a couple pictures. Albert had come with the wedding vehicle to take Andrea, Jared and I to church. John went to church with Elly.
7: When we arrived at church, John and Albert stayed in the nursery while the rest of the bridal party met in the basement. The Overbeek family and grandparents needed their corsages pinned on.
11: Congratulations | After the service we had our receiving line outside while the students went downstairs for a snack.
13: We were married by Rev. Sonnevelt. Our wedding text was Psalm 32:8 "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye."
14: TWO PEOPLE, TWO HEARTS, TWO LIVES, BECOME ONE HEART, ONE MIND, ONE NEW LIFE TOGETHER.
17: After the student reception we had a buns and juice for lunch in the church basement. We then took pictures with Grandpa and Grandma Oudshoorn and Opa Slingerland before heading to Chris Yauck Studio.
23: After Chris had taken a few pictures for us by Henderson Lake, Allan came and took more pictures. He really had some neat ideas. Since our horse and buggy was cancelled we wanted to do something fun for Jared and Sierra. We decided to spend some time blowing bubbles with them.

45: We went to the Dairy Queen where we sat outside and enjoyed our refreshing cokes.
