Several bridal parties were held to honor Leah Kathryn Shull of Ridgely and James Jacob “Jake” Yoes of Union City prior to their recent marriage. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Garland Shull of Ridgely. She is the granddaughter of Betty Jo Shull of Ridgely and the late Nard Calvin Shull and Mr. and Mrs. George Darnall-Pakish of Tiptonville. The groom is the son of Ronny Yoes and the late Sherry Yoes (who died on June 23 after the wedding) of Union City. He is the grandson of Eileen Colwick and the late J.T. Colwick of Parsons and the late James and Jerene Yoes of Greenfield. COFFEE A coffee was held in the Union City home of Mr. and Mrs. Vic Durall on a beautiful Saturday morning. Hope Durall opened her lovely home to the many friends of the groom’s parents. Guests visited with the groom’s parents and met the bride. The home was beautifully decorated with fresh flowers and candles. The dining table had a large centerpiece arrangement of beautiful pink roses. Coffee punch and Planters Punch were served to guests upon arrival. As they fellowshipped, they enjoyed the beautiful home and met the bride’s mother and her grandmother, Betty Jo Shull. Guests were served an array of breakfast items, including sausage cream cheese casserole bake, muffins, petits fours, ham and biscuits, coffee cake and decorated cookies. POLISHING PARTY A polishing party for the bride was hosted at Salon 214 in Tiptonville by Nikki Wray and Mallory Sumara, both of Tiptonville. Salon 214 was the gathering place for all of the bridesmaids, flower girls, registry attendants, servers and the mother of the bride. Guests enjoyed appetizers and drinks, including Texas Caviar, seven-layer Mexican dip, chips, gourmet oyster crackers, chess square brownies and tomato sandwiches. As they snacked and giggled, each girl was pampered by the two hostesses and had their fingernails and toenails polished a beautiful pink to match their bridesmaid attire before the wedding. BRIDESMAIDS’ LUNCHEON The home of the bride’s grandmother, Betty Jo Shull, was the setting for a bridesmaids’ luncheon on the Friday prior to the wedding. It was hosted by the bride’s grandmothers and her sister, Laura Leigh Shull of Cleveland, Miss. The bride designed the beautiful table arrangements, which were tall cylinder crystal and silver vases filled with hydrangea blooms and candles. The menu was Betty Jo Shull’s chicken salad served open-faced on a croissant, marinated green beans, pretzel salad and lemon cake. The honoree gave her bridal party rhinestone flip-flops to be worn with their bridesmaid’s dresses and earrings, presented on an earring travel hanger made especially by the bride, to be worn during the ceremony. The hostesses gave each member of the bridal party a beautiful gold-leafed picture frame that had been used as their place cards. Published in The Messenger 7.2.08
