Wedding at Historic Calapooia Country Church - Jack + Mia

Southern Oregon reserved one dry fall day on November 11th 2017 to herald the small country wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Randall. The quaint ceremony and cozy reception was held on the historic property at Calapooia Country Church. Built in 1906, the little white wooden church is surrounded by rolling emerald hills, the wizened oak trees, almost bare, shedding the last of their golden tresses.

Mother of the Groom

I am so thrilled that Jack found such a wonderful girl, and one who sees and appreciates his own great qualities. We just love Mia - and her family! My favorite thing about Mia is her love of family! We see Jack more often and have so much fun with them. Mia makes Jack a better man. We are not just gaining a daughter but a new and improved son as well! Speaking as someone who has greatly improved by my own spouse, I can tell you that the best marriages are between people who make each other better people. Today is very much a family affair with our two clans working hard to pull off a loving and festive celebration. From homemade tamales to perogis, hand crafted decorations, borrowed tables and chairs, and the long distance traveled by many family members, I think this is a pretty amazing way to launch Jack and Mia into their new life together.

Father of the Bride

I am so happy that Mia was able to be married in a church, and Jack is a very good person. Even though Mia is now married she is always going to be my daughter, my princess. I will always be close to her, and she will always be close to me. My house is always open to her and her new family. I will always be there for her.

Erika - Maid of Honor

First I wanted to acknowledge each and every one of you and hank you for coming, we wouldn’t be able to make this day happen without your love and support. The Lord has blessed us here today with a gorgeous bride and a handsome groom.
Mia and I always green up dreaming of our perfect wedding. And look around us, we could not be even more blessed to have such a beautiful day. Anyone can be passionate, but it take a real pair to be silly. When Mia and Jack are together they let their guard down. Together, the are two of the goofiest people I know. Jack and Mia are a very funny, sarcastic, and awkward couple. Jack has horrible jokes and Mia always seems to back them up anyways. Without Jack there is no Mia.
I have never seen her so happy in my life. Everything about Jack turns Mia back into the little 8 year old girl who spent her time planning her wedding for the future. And that future is today. There is a Bible verse that I would like to go over with Mia and Jack,
1 John 4:12 says: ‘ No one has ever seen God, but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.’
As for the couple, always remember that there is no love greater than Gods love.
I love you both dearly, and I wish you nothing but blessings.

Best Man

Mia - Jack is incredibly stubborn, and he twists any sort of fact and occurrence to fit any preconceived theory he has, even if those theory involves feelings and he wont give it up no matter what. Jack insists that onions did not make him cry for several weeks when he was about nine. To prove him wrong I chased him down with a cut onion to make him cry. Anyways, when Jack starts talking about how it might be aliens, don’t say I did not warn you. Have Fun!

I am glad Mia is part of our family and glad that Jack met her. I think they are going to have a very happy and fruitful relationship and I look forward to seeing them grown

Mother of the Bride

Pastor

I don’t know if you were expecting to be proposed to at a wedding, but that’s what’s happening right now. God Himself, who is doing the miracle in front of you, uniting Jack and Mia, would invite you to be his bride. And you can ask anyone who has that relationship with Jesus - it’s better if we’re together. Now, just from the fact that you are here for this wedding, you can agree that Jack and Mia are good together, and they love each other, and they have something together that they share that is special and worth having.

Jack - Groom

I love you. I have loved you for most of the time that I have known you, and I am glad that you finally agreed to marry me. You have made my life lovely and joyful, and there is nothing I would like more than to spend the rest of it with you. I do not know what the future holds, but I promise to always be there for you and to never forget the feelings that I have for you. If God is half as good to us in the years to come as he has been during the past two, then we are blessed indeed.
