Stephen Decatur Students Host a Mock Wedding

Stephen Decatur High School hosted a mock wedding and reception for its Singles Living Class. Teacher Heather Patnode said the event was an activity to teach students that a wedding is about more than “the dress”. “Students had to plan, attend, dress, finance and work the wedding and the reception,” she said.
