A place to sit

The vintage pews from Greater Mount Nebo Baptist Church, Vivian, were arranged under a pecan tree at Lynn Farms, Gilliam, and served as the seating for guests attending the wedding of Lesley Lynn of Prescott, Ariz., and Jeremy Johnson.

They were special to Lynn because church pastor the Rev. Jimmie Carroll grew up on the farm.
"He is 10 days older than Dad (Bruce Lynn Jr.) and they were friends growing up," said Lynn.

The magnolia snippets were clipped from trees on the lawn and arranged on the pews by Lynn, her mom, Jane D. Watts, and her aunt, Pamela Broesamle, who also grew up on the farm.

I would love to inquire about these pews with someone, if possible. I'm a wedding designer in Charleston, SC and trying to put together an inventory of beautiful pews to rent to brides. Would you mind helping me?
