Former La Crescenta resident Graham Houser and Michelle Kosta were married at the Cook Farm in Troutdale, Ore. The Rev. Sarah Royal officiated.
The mothers of the bride and groom spoke during the ceremony. The groom’s dog Dink served as the ring bearer. Following the ceremony, the couple rode out on an adult tricycle to the song “A Bushel and a Peck and a Hug Around the Neck,” from the Broadway musical “Guys and Dolls”. Another highlight was when a bluegrass band sang and played “Picture in a Frame,” by Tom Waits, the couple’s favorite song.
At the reception guests sat at vegetable-themed tables and dined on a barbecued dinner while wearing stick-on mustaches available at every place setting. The bride and groom and wedding party surprised everyone with a choreographed dance.
The maid of honor was Chelsea Kosta, the bride’s sister. Bridesmaids were Leslie Croghan, Sophia Bianco, Laurel Ferrarini, Emily Warden and Becca Houser, the groom’s sister.
