84: Behind the | The surprise wedding came as a vision to the bride on July 4 after a bit of vino. The groom was mowing the home baseball diamond the following day & took a break to hear of the vision. He donned the field "The Field of Dreams" and later proposed at that very spot; ironically, covered in mower dust and dirt once again. The bride & groom planted all the white flowers in the yard together, knowing it was to be decor for their wedding ceremony. The groom built a complex stage over the hot tub, to provide a perfect perch for the string quartet to perform. The string quartet moved immediately after the ceremony because the water beneath the stage was causing trouble for the cello! The groom's parents were in Nova Scotia 1- 2 weeks prior to the surprise ceremony, not knowing their son was anxiously awaiting a solid answer as to their whereabouts for September 25, 2010. The bride's father's 60th birthday allowed the entire surprise to occur, creating a "reason for the season" ,enticing out of town guests to be present. The bride's mother & grandmother stayed up half the night before the wedding making gorgeous corsages & boutonnieres, only to have them totally forgotten come ceremony time! The bride's bouquet was almost forgotten! Thanks to a quick-thinking friend, (Lois) who ran the bouquet out during the bridal march, the day was saved! The groom was digging in the dirt near the stage, to make room for band speakers , approximately 15 minutes before the first band & party started! The bride was on a ladder, hanging lanterns in trees as guests began arriving-approximately 2 hours before the ceremony! A ceiling fan in the vaulted living room was hanging by 2 wires the morning of the wedding, thanks to the bride-to-be's cleaning skills. A quick friendship was developed with the kind folks of JR Electric at 10 a.m. the morning of the wedding! The wedding cake bows were adorned with the bride's paternal grandmother's earrings & broches. The bride wore another set of her grandmother's earrings for the ceremony. The groom asked the bride's father for her hand 20 minutes before the ceremony was to begin... considered risky by some! At this time, the bride's father, was unaware the wedding would occur within the hour. The wedding "party", all under the age of 12, were told of their flower dropping- triangle ringing-ring bearing duties 5 minutes before the ceremony started. A carefully planned itinerary was created & dispersed prior to the ceremony, substituting for a rehearsal; giving all willing participants a detailed plan to follow, in attempt to pull off a flawless surprise! A few good friends is all one needs... It took the assistance of 5 spectacular friends, 1 open- minded preacher, & a couple of thrill-seeking photographers, to orchestrate the entire surprise wedding! Our incommunicable thanks to Lois Urdy, Duane and Brandey Wegley, Ric Hart, Mike Hummel, Preacher Jason Norton, & photographers David & Linda Madden. Further thanks to musicians: Mike Blakely, Larry Nye, Donnie Price, Joey Love, Bret Fenster, Bill Cornish, & Jay Johnson.
