A double-ring ceremony that, due to rain, had to be relocated from its original outdoor location, united in marriage Crystal Schroeter and Darryl Winkelman.

The new Mrs. Winkelman is the daughter of Eugene, Ore., residents Kurt and Anna Schroeter. They were special guests, and he escorted his daughter to the arch at the front of the room to give her away.
Crystal wore the wedding dress that her mother wore at her marriage some 40 years ago.
Winkelman is the son of the late Richard Winkelman, and Heather Winkelman, of Crescent City. She was unable to attend due to ill health. Darryl also wishes to remember his late daughter, Jennifer.
The matron of honor was the bride's sister, Roxanne Olson, of Portland. The best man was Brandon Winkelman, son of the bridegroom.
Others in the wedding party were Steven Winkelman and Stuart Winkelman, brothers of the bridegroom; D.J. Winkelman, nephew of the bridegroom; and Barbara Bullard, sister of the bridegroom.
