Congratulations Sarah & Earl!
They tied the knot at the beautiful Seven Dolors Catholic Church, in Manhattan KS and were able to share in their joy with family and friends at the Manhattan Catholic School Gym.
Like many others right now, they were given the difficult decision to cut their guest list in half and have just family and a few close friends present. They didn’t let that get in their way and although tears were shed in the process their love prevailed.
Seven Dolors Catholic Church Ceremony
Sarah & Earl’s wedding took place on a hot June day with a 2:00 pm traditional catholic ceremony at Seven Dolors Catholic Church in Manhattan, KS. Sarah’s mother and father walked her down the aisle where she finally got to marry the man she says God brought into her life for a reason.
Sarah’s hair and makeup were provided by Makeup Artistry by Alexandra in Manhattan, KS. Sarah wore a stunning lace detailed A-line wedding gown from Celebrations of the Heart, Manhattan, KS, and Earl looked handsome in his black suit with a lavender tie from Men’s Warehouse. Bridesmaids wore different styles of long lavender dresses while the groomsmen wore grey suits with lavender ties. Bouquets and boutonnieres were provided by Peach Petal Design, Topeka Ks. After the ceremony at Seven Dolors Catholic Church, the couple headed to the K-State Gardens to take some beautiful pictures together.
Their guests joined them in the Manhattan Catholic School gym for their reception where Sarah & Earl made their grand entrance to the Office theme song. After their entrance, they cut into their cake that was provided by Alma Bakery out of Alma, KS while Sarah’s mom played the accordion. Dinner was provided by Karen Trindle out of Hutchinson KS. After some sweet toasts from their wedding party and Sarah’s father the party started off with a fun game Complete Weddings + Events Kansas does called 5 Minute Photo. The couple goes around to the tables and takes a picture with each table and have to complete this task in 5 minutes or less. Their guests got creative with their pictures.
The dance began with a German tradition called the Grand March and soon Sarah & Earl were in the middle of their family and friends dancing to “Perfect” by Ed Sheeren. Sarah & her dad danced to “I loved her first” by Heartland and Earl and his mother let loose to “You’ll be in my heart” by Phil Collins. Later in the night, the couple played the shoe game which their guests thought was a hit. They also enjoyed the photo booth and danced the night away.
