Corie Elizabeth Meck and Kevin Allen Klinger were married on July 1, 2012, in Las Vegas, Nev. The Rev. Jonathon Baker, the groom’s uncle, presided over the ceremony. The happy couple exchanged their vows in the foreground of a beautiful sunset reflecting off the red rocks of the Nevada desert. Unbeknownst to the newlyweds, the marriage was also attended by a pair of doves who graced the ceremony on the rooftop of the altar and then departed after they watched the Klingers exchange their kiss.
The bride was given in marriage by her parents, J.P. and Denise Meck, Plains Township, Pa.
The groom was given in marriage by his parents, Todd and Carla Klinger, York, Pa.
Corie and Kevin were surrounded by their family and friends as they exchanged vows under a beautiful Nevada sunset. With siblings, Abby and Paul Meck and Megan Conrad (Klinger) by their sides, the newlyweds were bonded together by a blessing of their hands, exchanging vows of their hearts and promising themselves to each other.
All of those in attendance were celebrated as they each added a unique stone to create a colorful mosaic. This tribute to their loved ones now adorns the threshold of the Klinger’s home in Harrisburg, Pa.
Although the wedding could not be attended by all beloved friends and family, the couple was blessed by those who have passed on through a commemorative vase of roses which adorned the altar space during the ceremony and reception. This bouquet was created as part of an intimate “Flower Ceremony” during the rehearsal dinner, in which grandparents and great-grandparents were symbolized with white roses.
The Klinger marriage was also celebrated by family and friends at a wedding shower at Liberty Forge Golf Course, Mechanicsburg, Pa.
After their wonderful week in Las Vegas, Nev., the couple enjoyed their first few moments of matrimonial bliss at Couples Resorts in Jamaica.
