5/20/2012 6:01:00 AM Weddings: Valerie McKee and Lyle Minjares
The families of Valerie Melissa McKee and Lyle Cole Minjares, both of Kingman, are pleased to announce the marriage of Valerie to Lyle on April 21. Pastor Charles Wilson conducted the sunset ceremony at the home of Craig and Debbie McKee, which was attended by a small group of friends and family. Valerie's cousins, Lauren McKee and Sarah Hancock, were bridesmaids, and her sister, Victoria McKee, was maid of honor. Lyle was attended by Trent McKee and Ashley Painton, and Justin Helsley was best man. The flower girl, Lyle's beautiful daughter, Jaelynn Minjares, wore a sweet pink and white dress and tossed fresh rose petals.
Valerie carried a bouquet of pink, purple, teal and pale green hydrangeas, with white calla lilies in her full-length white gown with chapel-length train. With the sunset beach theme poolside, the bride and her attendees enjoyed the spring ceremony with bare feet. Valerie's father, Craig, walked her down the aisle to give her hand in marriage to Lyle.
The small venue and modest budget meant that many friends and family were unable to attend the joyous event.
"If you have touched our lives, we missed having you there, but you were in our hearts." Valerie and Lyle.
The happy couple plans to begin their life as a family in Kingman.
