Devin and Stephanie are Married
|The Wedding||Reception||Photo Shoot|
The wedding took place on Friday evening, December 17th at The Hollywood Schoolhouse in Woodinville, Washington. This beautifully renovated structure is a unique historical landmark that was built in 1912. The whole place was decorated in a festive Christmas atmosphere with many sparkling lights, garlands, and a scattering of Christmas trees. The spacious interior with its grand ballroom was the perfect place for this romantic and memorable event where the guests could enjoy both the ceremony and the reception in one beautiful place.
Over 200 invited guests attended this gala affair, with some of Stephanie's relatives traveling from places as far away as Winnipeg, Boston, and New Zealand. The wedding participants were all dressed in formal black; the groom's men in their tux with burgundy vests (Devin and the two fathers in silver gray vests), and the brides maids in bare shoulder dresses. Stephanie stood out radiantly in her beautiful white satin gown with flowing train and a light gossamer veil. Her Maid of Honor was her sister, Allison Wegg. Devin's Best Man was Ryan Keller. The bridesmaids were Kim Duncan, Erin Ernst, Karin Shifflette (Devin's sister), and Kari Wetzler. The groomsmen were Andrew Cline, Anthony Goslin, Russell Green, and Ben Williams.
Stephanie walked down the isle in the processional, escorted by her father, with music from "Cannon in D". She was then released to Devin as they together faced the officiating pastor, Verlon Fosner, who has been Stephanie's family pastor. Special readings were recited by Danielle Williams (Romans 13:8-10, 1 Corinthians 13:4-13), and Rob Burgunder sang and played The Wedding Song, which was written and composed by Devin. After a message by the pastor, exchanging of vows, lighting of the Unity Candle, and a marriage prayer, the audience was introduced to Devin and Stephanie Schindele. They then departed to the recessional music of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and to the loud cheers and congratulations of the guests.
