Leah Suzanne Roten and Dwain Eugene Rich were united in marriage on Sunday, Oct. 10, 2010. The evening wedding ceremony was officiated by the Rev. Kirklin Cross Sr. of Cleburne, Texas.

Wedding vows were exchanged by candlelight in the Tuscan-inspired ballroom of the Aristide Event Center in Mansfield, Texas. The bride was given in marriage by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Billy Charles Roten. The groom is the son of the late Mrs. Virginia Rich.

Vocalist Jon Janacek performed “Ave Maria” as the bride’s mother, Mrs. Joyce Roten and the groom’s sister, Mrs. Kathy Janacek, lit the unity candles. Vocalists Mr. Dee Vaughn and Ms. Krystal Vaughn sang “The Prayer” for the processional.

The bride carried a fragrant bouquet of garden roses and mini gardenias, adorned with family heirlooms, including the bride’s maternal grandmother’s ring, the bride’s father’s family medallion with his grandfather’s picture and a hand-embroidered handkerchief which belonged to the groom’s mother.

Serving as the bride’s honor attendants were the bride’s sister, Mrs. Debbie Kennemer, and the bride’s friend, Mrs. Brenda McGeorge. Mr. Gary Janacek, the groom’s brother-in-law was his best man. Children completed the wedding party, as young cousins of the bride and groom, Miss Glenna Brownlee, Miss Sarah Crecelius, Miss Zoey Laseman and Mr. Jackson Maurer, preluded the entrance of the bride and her father, carrying candlelight, rose petals and wedding rings. Ushers for the wedding ceremony were Mr. Mike Kennemer and Mr. Mack Kennemer, brother-in-law and nephew of the bride.

A seated, candlelight dinner reception followed the wedding ceremony on the Aristide Garden Patio, while guitarist Mr. Joel Cross entertained guests with instrumental jazz. Vocalist Ms. Krystal Vaughn serenaded the couple with a rendition of “At Last” while the couple danced to their favorite song. A tribute was made in loving memory to the bride’s maternal grandparents, the late Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Rayburne, as they share the same wedding date, Oct. 10, 1938.

The newly-wedded couple was sent off under a canopy of lighted sparklers to begin a honeymoon in Granbury, Texas. They will reside in Cleburne, Texas.
