Page 3 : The Wedding & Early Adult Years (1996 - 2012)

Born: 1976, Catawba County, NC

 
                                       
During the afternoon of July 19, Brad asked Beth's Dad if he could stop by for a visit.  While he was there, Brad asked Curtis for permission to marry Beth.  Curtis told Brad, "I trust Beth's judgment.  If she says 'Yes', then it's OK with me."
 
Brad sent a dozen long-stemmed white roses to Beth at work during the day, and asked her to wear her white pant suit when they went out that evening.  All day long she suspected that something was us, but wasn't sure what it was.
 
Brad had made arrangements to take Beth, some family friends, and Beth's parents out to eat at a restaurant in Rutherford College.  Beth suspected that something was up when she saw the flowers, candles and rose petals on the table, and realized that Brad's mother, Jo, and his brother, Gardner, were already there waiting at the restaurant.
 

July 19, 1996

 
 
Brad had planned to propose to Beth before everyone got inside and seated, but they got separated by family and friends once they arrived at the restaurant and he didn't get a chance to do so.
                                       
                                       
After everyone was seated at the table, Brad gave Beth's mother, Carolyn, some flowers and thanked her for giving birth to Beth.  Their home-group had been studying ancient Jewish wedding rituals and one of them was the "purchase price" the bridegroom was required to pay.  Brad gave Beth's Dad several coins with the year 1976 (the year Beth was born) on them - reminding everyone of Beth's great value.

Brad gave Beth a package containing a music box, and inside the music box was a small black box containing a heart-shaped diamond ring.  He got on his knee and asked Beth to marry him. 

Amidst tears of joy, she said, "Yes".

Everyone in the room was crying at that point - including the waitress at the restaurant.
 

                                       
                                       

 
 

(Below) A wedding shower shortly before their marriage

 

Beth and Brad purchased a house and started moving their stuff in on 01 Oct 1996.  Brad lived in the house for a few weeks before their marriage, while Beth continued to live at home.

 

 
 

Beth and her parents were attending a Jewish Roots/Messianic home group prior to their marriage.  The decision was made that Beth's wedding would take place in her parent's back yard beside the family pool.  The wedding guest list was limited to 50 of the closest family and friends.

 

Dennis Hass was the minister who married them.  Beth's maid-of-honor was Denise Hass.  Brad's had two best men: Gardner Seese (his brother) and Jeff Neigel (Brad's college roommate).

2009

 
Beth graduated from Bandy's High School (at the age of 16), immediately started working in the offices of Twin City Knitting and took night classes at CVCC (Catawba Valley Community College) to get a two-year business degree.   After working at Twin City for nearly twenty years, Beth decided to go back to school and pick up a teaching degree.  Even though she had enjoyed her years working in the business world, she always had a desire to teach, too.
 
While still working full time at Twin City Knitting, tending to her wifely and motherly responsibilities, she took on the responsibility of going back to school.  She signed up for a co-op with Appalachian State University at Catawba Valley Community College in Hickory and took night classes for four years to acquire the teaching degree that she had long desired.
 

Beth did her student teaching at Maiden Elementary in 2009

with a BS (Bachelor of Science) in Elementary Education in 2009

There was a winter storm in the NC mountains the day of her graduation, and we even had to take a detour because of road work and bad weather, but the entire family was there to show her how proud they were of her accomplishments.
