On our wedding day, since it was a Sunday, we had Bible class as usual and worshiped together with our family in Christ that morning. The bridal party, family, visiting friends and wedding coordinators went out to lunch together at El Fenix Mexican Restaurant. Our waitor, Marrizzio, did an amazing job, single-handedly caring for all of us! After this, Amy and her girls went to the house in Weatherford to let the dog out, then we all went to our hair appointments at New Image Salon in Weatherford, where a couple of the girls there agreed to open the salon and do their hair for the wedding. It was a special and fun time of getting ready. Thanks to the prompt service at the salon, we had enough time to enjoy coffee together at Starbucks! Boy, did we get some looks in there! Guess it is that uncommon for ladies to be all dressed up?!
After worship service that evening, we rushed over to the River Oaks Community Center to get ready! What a beautiful job the ladies at Westside did on our decorations! Everything looked so pretty! Soon, it was time to walk! Up until then, Amy had been feeling rather nervous, but then she never stopped looking at Mark, who never stopped looking at her, and all was well.
Our ceremony was beautiful, with a short poem, read by Stan Cox, some personal words by him, an exchange of vows, and a duet, sung by Amy's daughter, Ericha, and Armando Vera, Jr.
We were kept on time by our coordinator, Jennelle Scroggins, who let us know when it was time for the next thing we needed to do.
Our cake was made by Laura Godfrey, who worships with us, and was beautiful. Everything was tied together beautifully by three speeches which had us laughing and teary-eyed by turns, but which meant a lot to us, and then it was time to leave. We honeymooned in Dallas, TX at the Ritz Carlton. Mark treated us to spa treatments, and all-around relaxation for the three days before coming home for Thanksgiving!
