This is our official wedding picture. Taken after the ceremony of course, since Geoff couldn't see his Bride before the wedding.
We got married in Arlington Heights Evangelical Free Church in Arlington Heights, Illinois. Neither of us had ever (or has ever) attended a Sunday worship service there, but they agreed to allow us to tie the knot in their building because we were being married by Dave Ostendorf, a pastor of another Evangelical Free church.
Martin Metreger, Rita's brother (youngest of three) served as one of the ushers/candlelighters.
Martin had the privilege of escorting Rita's mother (Christine Metreger) to her seat.
Martin's son, Marty, (Rita's nephew) served as the ring bearer.
