She crocheted her red, white and blue apron for the event. The bridegroom matched in tuxedo style with bowtie and hat. The family joined in the celebration wearing bonnets and hats and dress attire fitting the occasion. That theme carried through to a sit-down dinner for the couple and special friends, Thelma and Bernie Benkey. Myla and Mattea served them.Cameras and video rolled capturing the cutting of their anniversary cake and warm wishes to the happy couple. They spoke of the memories and how the Lord had blessed them even through hardships. The entire event was one of reflection and thankfulness of God and for their families and many friends.
