This weekend I had the joy of driving down to Casper, WY, where I lived prior to my current assignment in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana, for the wedding of Jeremy Hugus and Libby Tedder.
Jeremy grew up in the town of Riverton, WY, which was about 20 miles from Lander, where I grew up. He and I knew each other through the district NYI community, and we were actually both on the district all-star quiz team in 1998 that got first place at regionals (the only year that Rocky Mountain ever did so, to my knowledge). He is now an attorney in Casper.
Libby is a recent graduate from NTS. She is one of the sharpest people that I know. If you have not already heard of her, you will be hearing of her soon. God has great things in store for her.
Tom Oord, who was a big influence on both of them at NNU, came out to officiate. During the wedding, they had one of the most, um, "original" unity ceremonies that I have ever seen. Here is a video of it. (I apologize for the shaking. It was hard to get a good angle from where I was stationed.)
It was a great wedding! Beautiful ceremony, beautiful decorations, beautiful location, beautiful music, and beautiful people! It was an honor to be able to be a part of it in my own small way.
