Stacy Bleakney and Jamie Goddard's Wedding

The sun shone through for Stacy and Jamie on July 7, 2007 for their very special day.

Family and friends gathered at the First North River Baptist Church to witness the sharing of vows between Stacy and Jamie as they entered into marriage.

During the signing of the register, Stacy's Aunt Susan Layton sang acappella "I Love You Truly."

After the wedding the bridal party gathered in the beautiful yard of Claude and Pat Steeves in Havelock, N.B. for photos. Earlier, when Stacy had visited Claude and Pat to ask permission to use their grounds, their reply was yes, and that Stacy and Jamie would be the 50th. bride and groom to have pictures taken there.

The wedding reception followed at the Havelock Legion and the ladies of the Legion catered and served a great meal. After all the formalities that go with a wedding were over, tables were cleared, ties removed, and the music began. What a great time was held by all, from ages 5 to 90.

The bride and groom gathered their things together the next day and went to Newfoundland for a weeks honeymoon.

Stacy and Jamie reside in the country near Killams Mills.

Best wishes to you both.
