I have just wrapped up the editing and posting process for Curtis and Dana's wedding, which was this past weekend. This wedding was a lot of fun for everyone who could attend. Many of those in attendance were Alumni from the original John Marshall in Oklahoma City. Like some of the others in attendance, I had just met Curtis and Dana during the demolition of the old high school earlier this year. During this time is when this couple were reunited. The core group of us that met nearly every night during the demolition at the old building became a tightly knit group. We became known as "The Wrecking Crew". Curtis became well known to the endless stream of alumni that came by the school during this process to get a block or some other memento, many times with Curtis aid, which earned the moniker of "Mr John Marshall".
As you will see in the photographs from the wedding, it has a clear theme, John Marshall High School. Many of the decorations were items that came from within and around the now demolished school. The colors, red & blue, are the schools colors. The "card" that is on the fence as you arrived, was in fact a portion of a chalk board from one of the classrooms. The sign on the fence behind them, was the sign that stood in the front of the school. The star pattern the they stood on to exchange the vows & rings, was one of only twelve of these "stars" that were around the top of the auditorium at the old school. The center pieces at each table was one of the glass blocks from the main building.
I am happy to have gotten the opportunity to become friends with them both. I wish them many happy years together. Please enjoy the images of this special night. Just click the "Visit Gallery" in the upper right corner of the slide show to enter the gallery.
