Summer and Anthony's Wedding
August 31, 2002

Mike, his parents, and I drove up to Kearny, Nebraska for Summer and Anthony's wedding on August 31. (Summer is the daughter of his parents' friends, Jim and Gwen Jessen.) The ceremony was held in a very pretty Methodist church. There were flowers and white candles all around.

Entrance to the Reception

The reception was held in a town theater. Since they were using a format in which they had a head table, the theater setting worked out very well. The head table was on the stage, and the tiered seating gave all the guest tables a good view.

This picture shows the gathering of well-wishers waiting for them at the reception (with bubbles)
