Jennifer and Bill Duguay (Carlton) and Betsy and Skip Smith (Winthrop) are very pleased to announce the marriage of their children, Johnnie Kay Duguay-Smith and Casey Gooding Smith. They were married in a beautiful ceremony on May 1 by the Methow River. All of their living grandparents were there: Wayne and Linda Mendro of Twisp, Doug Devin (Margie Griffin) of Mazama, and Kay Duguay of Tacoma. We missed Grampie Dick Duguay, Grace Devin, and Bill and Jean Smith.
Casey and Johnnie were both born and raised in the Methow Valley and attended Little Star Montessori School and Methow Valley Elementary School. Casey (Montana State University) graduated from Liberty Bell High School in 2010 and Johnnie (Gonzaga University) graduated from Liberty Bell in 2013. The newlyweds enjoy skiing, hiking, biking, horseback riding and many other outdoor activities. Johnnie works at the Methow Conservancy and Casey runs his family business, BCS Livestock.
The wedding was very small, with just immediate family and grandparents. Grandparents and parents provided readings and music. Jacqueline O’Keefe was the officiant, photography was by Mihayla Phillips and Willy Duguay did the flowers, which he gathered from the hills. There was delicious food from Kathy’s Kitchen, pies from the Mazama Store and heirloom china from all sides of the family. The dancing was to a varied playlist, including ragtime music, country and rock and roll. Only one dog was allowed to attend.
The couple had a lovely honeymoon in Manson and came back just in time for lambing. There will be a bigger celebration in October.
