Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Duane Paine
Dear Dog Townians and outlander moles,
Miss Noamah Barthsheba Pettigroove, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Eustace “Pud” Pettigroove of Gideon, and Mr. Wayne Duane Paine, son of Mr. and Mrs. Duane Wayne Paine of Dog Town, were united in holy matrimony in a 3 p.m. ceremony Friday, Aug. 13, 2010, at the Fifth Baptist Foursquare Pentecostal Nondenominational Fellowship, Dog Town.
The Rev. Jerry Ray Baxter officiated the ceremony, which was followed by a lavish and lively reception at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #023 Restaurant and Lounge.
The bride, always on the cutting edge of fashion, wore a white, floor-length, crushed tricot gown imported from Hussey’s General Store in Maine. Featuring a discreet empire waist, lace sleeves and a 23-foot train, Mrs. Hicks’ gown was the talk of town over the weekend and is sure to garner plenty of bidding action on eBay. She carried a bouquet of still-dewy hydrangea surreptitiously plucked from Miz Opal Spight’s garden en route to the nuptials.
Serving as maid of honor was Miz Herodias Bookout of Welling. Bridesmaids were Desdemona Wicker of Moodys; Luane LaWayne Paine, sister of the groom, Dog Town; LucyGail Adair, Gideon; and Jane Smith, Scraper.
The groom, attended by his four brothers, Lane, Shayne, Duwayne, and Payne, wore a unique array of vintage items originally purchased by his father, uncles and grandfather at Hind’s Department Store, downtown Tahlequah: white double-knit trousers and clean shirt. His off-white jacket–studded with glistening rhinestones, emblazoned with the American flag and embroidered in gold with an image of Jesus ascending into heaven–was pre-worn by Porter Wagoner. A jaunty straw hat completed the groom’s ensemble.
Following a honeymoon at the Super 8 Inn and Suites, Tahlequah, the couple will make their home in Dog Town, where the groom is employed as Supervisor of Fuchsia Extraction Operations with the Dog Town Glitter Mines, and the bride is Hospitality Manager at the Davies Funeral Home.
