David and Sharee now Mr. and Mrs. Washington

    WOW !!!!!!
The Washingtons
David and Sharee

What a wedding!!!!!  Cochino Lodge was alive with a grand ceremony, music, food and visiting of families and friends. .....and dancing.   Families were from Weeping Mary, Alto, Diboll, Buda, Lufkin, Houston and various other points in Texas. Music was by DJ XO and  friends  of Houston who kept the crowd dancing the night away. 

Four Generations  were present. Bessie Mae Parker, oldest guest at 92 years old, was a guest of honor. Her son, Harvey Parker,  performed the ceremony and her grandson was the Groom. Ms. Parker, a beautiful and very young woman,  still lives in Weeping Mary a beautiful community near Alto that has a rich history of many generations. She is the oldest woman in Weeping Mary and a Relative is the oldest man. So at this wedding, History was very prominent and a part of the celebration.
The Bride and Groom married in front of the Chapel where Allen Chapel benches seated the guests. History still alive and well with the Benches which were a part of many Sundays and celebrations years before at Allen Chapel near Kennard. Thank you for this gift , Allen Chapel. 

The Reception dinner was a grande feast.  Fried and baked  Chicken, Brisket , Turnip Greens, Corn on the Cob, black-eyed peas, pinto beans , creamed potatoes and gravy, Cabbage, Corn bread.  The candy bar was huge and filled with all sorts of candies and flavored popcorn. Cup cakes and the Bride and Groom's cakes were also greatly enjoyed.  The guests ate in the Reception area as well as near the chapel on outdoor tables and along the veranda enjoying the wooded view and lake.  They enjoyed the sun setting. The temperature was wonderful.
This was a wonderful wedding. I enjoyed meeting everyone and making new acquaintances. I hope to see them at another wedding in the near future.
This couple will live happily ever after and be a part of each other's lives always.
