Bethany Colleen Snyder of Killeen and James Clifford Stubbs of Spring were united in marriage July 10, 2010, at First Baptist Church in Killeen. Rev. David Barclay, pastor of Live Oak Baptist in Gatesville, officiated at the double-ring ceremony. Alberten Ratliff was the organist.
The bride is the daughter of Bob and Catherine Snyder of Killeen. She is a fourth-grade teacher at Williams-Ledger Elementary in Copperas Cove. The groom is the son of James and Barbara Stubbs of West Columbia.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a strapless ivory dress designed by Sottero and Midgley with crystal embellishment and glistening lace motifs that fell over a fitted satin skirt. A satin band and bow featured an elegant brooch that added a romantic accent at the empire waistline. The bride carried a bouquet with two dozen red roses and wore pearls she borrowed from her mother and diamond earrings, which were a gift from the groom.
The bride’s sister, Megan Elizabeth Snyder, served as the maid of honor, and Laura Beth Parker, the bride’s friend from college, was a bridesmaid. Flower girls were Madalyn and Mayson Tumlinson. The best man was Scott McMurry, the groom’s childhood friend. Kevin Cloudt, a friend from college, served as groomsman. Ushers were Thomas Beaumont, Kevin Stubbs and Allen Klimitchek.
The evening wedding was followed by a reception at the Inn at Salado.
After a honeymoon in the Bahamas, the couple will reside in Copperas Cove.
The bride is the granddaughter of Marilyn Mahon of Mason.
