Sanders-Burkholder celebrated wedding

Ceneca Shae Sanders and John Richard Burkholder celebrated  their wedding with friends and family on Aug. 3, 2001.

The couple had a garden wedding at the bride's parents' backyard with Bishop Gary Grubbs of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints officiating.

The maid of honor was Elena Sanders, of Fort Stockton, the sister-in-law to the bride while a friend Amy Esquivel, of Midland, served as a bridesmaid.

Hong Tang, of Midland, a friend to the groom, was best man and Augustine Esquivel, also of Midland, who is also a friend to the groom.

The bride wore a full-length gown of candlelight taffeta bodice embellished with lace and pearls, a dropped V waist, with a taffeta shirt with tulle overlay.

She carried a pastel spring bouquet tired with satin and pearl edged candlelight ribbon and wore a tiara with satin flowers and adorned with pearls.

The couple said their vows in front of an arbor of honeysuckle and a spring garland of pastel flowers and tulle that matched their garden theme of summer flowers and candles.

The bride's father gave her away.

Approximately 75 wedding guests enjoyed an informal barbecue dinner given by the groom's father after the wedding.

The bride is the daughter of Larry and Kim Sanders of Pecos and is a graduate of Pecos High School. She is currently attending Odessa College.

The groom is the son of John H. Burkholder of Pecos and Deborah Lucas of Midland and is a graduate of Midland High School. He is currently attending Odessa College.

The couple went on their wedding trip to Dallas and will be living in Odessa.

Beggin' for Bears

Victim Services is seeking teddy bear donations to assist the victims of New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

The teddy bear is an object outside of one's self that reminds one of being cared for, soothed, nurtured, and it is like an emotional blood bank and they will be given to both school kids and adults.

New teddy bears are needed, each one being 24 inches or less with a personal note for the victim who gets it.

Any teddy bears can be taken to the Adult Probation Office at 700-A Daggett Street in Pecos.

The deadline is Oct. 15, 2001.

For more information contact Susie Saenz at 447-6600.
