Wedding practice 1

 

On July 30, 1999, the wedding party and families of Jon and Jen assembled at the Sierra Madre Congregational Church to learn the ceremony which would be a part of Jon and Jen's wedding. Jon and Jen were both students at Biola University, which is where they met.

The following are some informal photos taken at the wedding practice and before the actual wedding. These have been stored for 22 years and were in fairly poor condition. With editing they are useful for remembering the event, if not photo album quality. They mostly feature Jon's side of the family because the photographer is Jon's uncle and was in the presence of that family. It is hoped that the pictures at least recall some memories.
