A Rockhound Wedding
Adam and Teresa
THANK YOU EVERYONE… We never could have pulled it off without all the help we got from so many CFMS Members! Not only did Members from our home club (Orange Belt Mineralogical Society) come to our aid, but also so many from different clubs pitched in.
At one time Adam sent out an SOS to the Rockhound community when we needed a photographer after we got a cancellation, and we got more than one person who offered their help. Thank you Ken Rogers who introduced us to Rick Higgins who was the answer to our prayers. You can call him @ (760) 415-0376. With his photos and the many photos sent to us from our dear Rockhound friends, along with the video my brother made I think we got the day covered, Thank you to all who took pictures, being the bride, I only got to see half of the wedding I was happy to see the other half through these pictures. It made me proud to show off my Rockhound friends to our family.
Thank you to all who attended and we missed all that couldn’t make it. Thank you for the many cards and the gifts. Special thanks to Helen Gardner for saving me from myself! She took my simple ideas and made it classy. She put together all the flowers for the bridle party and handled the potluck (including 200 sandwiches). Wait it doesn’t stop there, she also baked the cake at home, carried it to the campground and decorated in her motor home! I couldn’t find a more beautiful cake if I tried.
Shep was a big help too. He enabled us to enjoy our wedding by helping out with the fieldtrip. Also, Thanks to Eloy Martinez who worked for Rocks! The Navajo Prayer was the perfect touch to a perfect day. Adam said I could have any kind of wedding I wanted. I’m so glad I decided to have a Rockhound Wedding, because the day came out perfect for this Rockhound Bride! I even had time during the fieldtrip to walk above the canyon and watch our family and friends rockhound while I cleared my head… I still can’t believe that handsome Cowboy is all mine!
A perfect day for it with mild breezes, plenty of sun and temps in the 70's. After the ceremony we all partook in a deluxe potluck meal with decorated tables, listened to speeches of congratulations by friends and family, then reassembled for a quick rock hunt up a little used wash for agates and jaspers.
Dozens of us covered various hills and ravines and pretty much everyone found enough to fill their buckets with multi-colored multi-patterned specimens suitable for lapidary. From the wedding and hunt the newlyweds took off for their richly deserved and long anticipated honeymoon to Texas.
Congratulations to the newlyweds.
