Welcome. We gather here on God's beautiful beach to celebrate the joyful union of this man, (Groom) and this woman, (Bride) in Holy Matrimony.
February 12, 2017
The venue chosen by Chris and Emily was Marco Island's South Beach. The area where the rocks are is beautiful as you can see in the photo and also on Weddings by Phyllis Facebook page. Emily's father walked her down the aisle. The Medallion ceremony was performed where their children, Damian (16), Tate (11) and Dylan (10) pledged to continue to grow together and honor their new family. In return, Chris and Emily pledged to always respect and honor the children as individuals and members of the family. Each child then received a special medallion which their parents placed on their necks at the conclusion of the medallion ceremony. The 30 or so guests enjoyed both the marriage ceremony and the medallion ceremony. A reception was held later held in the home the couple rented on Marco Island. The family resides in Linn Grove, Iowa where Chris is a chicken farmer and Emily is a special education teacher. They have all since returned home.
