married John Siehling '04 on July 29, 2005
"We absolutely loved Dimnent Chapel. John and I met in high
and both attended Hope. We had many fond memories of Dimnent and felt
that it was one church that we both truly shared with each other. It also
helps that it looks like it's straight out of a fairy tale."
Kristi (Creswell)Van Dyk '04 married
Steve Van Dyk '03
on August 7, 2004
"Steve and I met at Hope. We were both education students and so
it seemed only fitting that we get married across the street from where
we met. I was a tour guide at Hope and knew the history behind the chapel
as well. I'd told hundreds of people stories about the organ and the building.
The stained glass windows were absolutely breathtaking. When we sift through
the photos of our special day we are amazed at the color and brilliance
that came through. So we chose the chapel for its meaningful place in
our lives as well as its traditional beauty."
(Pettijohn) Maas '05 married BJ Maas '04 on July 15, 2005
"BJ and I met our junior year volunteering at Camp Sunshine (a camp
for special needs people). We were both there through the special education
program at Hope doing what we love best, working with others with disabilities.
While dating, we spent many days at Dimnent in chapel together so when
we got engaged, we knew it would be the perfect place to exchange vows
before God, family, and friends. The whole ambiance of the chapel was
beautiful and our pictures turned out great! We couldn't have asked for
a better day!"
Lindsay (White) Canan '05 married Justin Canan on August 19, 2005
"When I first visited Hope, one of my
fondest memories was attending a chapel service inside Dimnent. I remember sitting
in the pew, awestruck by the beauty of the stain glass windows, cathedral
ceilings, and stone structure. It was almost as if I
was one step closer to Heaven! When the time came for Justin and I to
choose a place to be married in, my heart immediately knew it had to be
Dimnent Chapel. It would be the perfect place to celebrate the most special
day of my life! And as I walked down that long, center aisle, with the
sun spraying beautiful colors through the stain-glassed windows, I knew
my perfect wedding day was now complete."
