Sussex Pines Country Club
July 14, 2000
The picture above shows the original planned site for the wedding. A tent
was rented to provide shade during the ceremony. This was placed on the
grounds of the Sussex Pines country club near the 18th hole.
Unfortunately, a terrible storm swept through the night before the wedding
and we were forced to move it to a backup location - a Methodist church
in Bridgeville, Delaware.
Here we were huddling up to get our instructions on what to do during our
rehearsal of the wedding. Things actually turned out great considering
that we practiced outside and had to move the wedding inside to a place
most of us had never seen.
Lisa Wilhelm did the most excellent job at helping us to plan our wedding
(Lisa is above on the far right). She had everything planned down to the
minute and is the reason things seemed to go smooth. Marianna Baker helped
coordinate and made sure that we were in our right places. Thanks Lisa
At the rehearsal, Jeff did not know what was meant by the term "Practice
Cake." Jeff was nice to Marla, but about 5 seconds after this photo was
taken, he had cake all over his face and hair. Jeff thought it meant to
practice being nice to each other, but Marla had other plans...Jeff refuses
to publish photos of the moment after the picture above was taken :) But
see below for an equally embarassing situation...
The rehearsal dinner was hosted at the home of Jeff and Pam Tull. They
were great hosts and the above picture shows the food that was catered
by Jimmy's. Boy, those were some awesome crab cakes! Ben Griffith was a
pig and ate 5 of them.
Here is a nice group picture beside the pool at the Tull's. Get a good
look at Jeff's dry clothes because that is the last you will see them before...
Well, Lisa Wilhelm called all of the grooms-men together under the guise
of playing a game. After she told everyone to take off their shoes, Jeff
said, "Wouldn't it be funny if....." At the same time he said that, he
realized this game was just a ploy for him to get his shoes off so the
others could hoist him in the pool.
The above shows Jeff voicing his vow for revenge!
