At 7 p.m., Saturday, March 20, 1993, at Park Hill Baptist Church in North Little Rock, Arkansas Mandy Weir became my bride. We were surrounded and supported by many friends and family. We have many fond memories of that night and of the 21 years we have been together. The church was decorated with greenery, draped white netting and candelabra and the music was presented by organist Patty Tanner and soloist Curtis Cook.
Mandy wore a formal candlelight-satin sheath gown with a V-neckline by Bridal Original, accented with Venice lace, seed pearls and iridescents. The cathedral train, highlighted with lace appliques, was edged in scalloped lace. Her cathedral veil of illusion, sprinkled and edged with pearls, was secured by a tiara of re-embroidered Alencon lace, accented with a pouf of illusion. She carried a cascading bouquet of ivory-color roses, accented with dianthus and ivy.
Mandy’s sister Cami Weir was her maid of honor. The bridesmaids were Mrs. Richard Palmer and Mrs. Rick Pierce, Natalie DeAngelis and Mrs. Mike Sheehan. Junior bridesmaid was Melissa Warford, daughter of the bridegroom. David Warford, brother of the bridegroom, was the best man. Groomsmen were Richard Palmer, Chris Tarver and Danny Broaddrick.
The reception was held in the Officer’s Club at the Little Rock Air Force Base. Assisting were Lee Bell, Susan Harvey, Marji McNeil and Amy Lively.
We honeymooned in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. We wore a little rental car out driving from Atlantic City to Gettysburg and back. Most importantly we caught our first glimpse of New York City. New York City has been a big part of our life together and the source of many of our favorite memories.
Tonight we celebrate 21 wonderful years together. Mandy, Thanks again for being my bride.
