Favorite memory of the bride/groom

  • Bride: Riding home on the school bus up Rosedale Street, Agatha was about 3 years old, naked in the front yard. “Why aren’t you wearing any clothes?” I asked.  “Because I’m a dog and dogs don’t wear clothes…” ~Claire Zimmerman
  • Bride: Agatha kissing a spectator [on the cheek] at the Olympic Opening Ceremonies in a hot pink costume. “Welcome to Georgia!” ~Salli Lehman
  • Bride: The summer we lived at my pool. Stealing all the quarters from my brother’s Coca Cola bottle and eating foot long hotdogs and Blizzards. Honorable mention: My education from Agatha’s diary and Orange Crush. ~Jamie Williams
  • Bride: Driving down the road singing “Orange Colored Sky.” ~Susan McDonald
  • Bride: “Never been sweet OR cute.” ~Dixie Rich, aka “Mimmie”
  • Bride: “Is that my hair color?” Sharing an apartment during the UGA years, game days, being co-dance captains at SCHS. All the dancing through the years. ~Crystal Arata
  • Both: Think it was the first time Kenton had ever come over in the evening to hang out with Agatha, and I answered the door as her butler (in my workout clothes because we’d just gotten done “working out” with wine in the mini-house), and Kenton and I had a workout/athletic competition – was just such a fun time – truly excited to see Agatha and Kenton married. I love them much. ~Amber Hodgson
  • Both: I had lunch with Pattie, the groom’s mother, sometime last year.  During the lunch she got very emotional while telling me all about Kenton’s fabulous new(ish) girlfriend. She told me how great Agatha was, how much she loved her already, and that she really hoped she could pass down her family heirloom ring (FINALLY!) if/when Kenton proposed. Several months later, that dream came true! ~Eden Allison
  • Both: After Christmas celebration at their home. ~Lori Allison
  • Both: Hopefully their wedding. ~Cheryl Rahman
  • Both: Really one of their 1st dates: interstate–Q driving–sunroof–police–“Welcome to Ag’s World!”–Kenton’s face was priceless. ~Quintina Owens
  • Both:  Going to Agatha’s house for the first time to celebrate Kenton’s birthday. ~Laura Shaw
  • Both:  Dancing at Corner Pocket. ~Steve Sloan
  • Both:  Every new day is my favorite. ~Kenton Allison
