Stratford celebrates nuptials of ‘Q and U’
May 19, 2017
Stratford’s kindergarten classes enjoyed the traditional “Wedding of Q & U” in the Virginia Buzzell Gallery on Thursday afternoon.
The annual marriage ceremony takes place at the end of the school year to help the students celebrate learning those final two letters in their alphabet unit.
Freshmen Abby Ellison and Grey Faulkner played the role of bride and groom. Senior Sarah Kate Sellers sand “Once Upon a Dream” from “Sleeping Beauty” and music teacher Jerry Elder played “Trumpet Voluntary” as the bride walked down the aisle lined with flower petals.
The Rev. Joe McDaniel, of Musella Baptist Church, performed the ceremony for the third straight year. McDaniel has officiated more than 300 weddings in his 35 years in the ministry.
