Toni and Davis
January 25, 2002
Toni Brinkman and Davis Thresh were married in a lovely evening ceremony at St. Patrick's Parish in Sonora, California. Father Bill presided. Their children were their attendants. A reception dinner followed at the City Hotel in Columbia.
Toni designed the invitations they sent. The invitation read:
Two hearts, one love
Two promises, one covenant
Two lives, made one in Christ
Antoinette Marie Brinkman
and Davis Romine Thresh
together with our children
joyously invite you to join us in celebrating
new love, new dreams, a new future...
Professional photographs were taken at the church and the reception, but we have to wait two weeks for those. In the meantime here are impressions taken by the mother of the groom. I missed taking photos of some dear people who were there to celebrate with Toni and Davis because I was having such a nice time myself.
The background for this web page is from the banquet room wallpaper (below the wainscotting) in the City Hotel.
Davis and his boys, Victor and Spencer, came up to Columbia on Thursday night. We met them at the hotel. Friday, Toni arrived with her two boys, Scott and Kyle, and Stephanie from San Jose. She had time for a quick glance at her room, then we all rushed off to the church in Sonora for the rehearsal.
Christina, the wedding coordinator, taught everyone their proper places and moves. The boys learned about their important roles of lighting the candles during the ceremony and bearing the rings. We then went out for a lunch together.
It was soon time to dress for the wedding. Davis made sure the boys were all buttoned up and ready to go to the church for photos.
After the ceremony, there was a pre-dinner gathering in the upper parlor of the City Hotel. Fiddlers played and people mingled.
The wedding dinner was a sumptuous repast. The menu featured winter squash bisque, baby mixed greens with toasted hazelnut dressing, and a choice of either grilled shrimp with pappadelle pasta and saffron cream or grilled fillet of beef tenderloin with whipped potatoes and blue cheese sauce.
There was a delicious lemon wedding cake with vanilla custard
Congratulations Davis and Toni. Best wishes to you for years to come, from Robert and Christine.
We bid the newlyweds goodbye.
