Steffen-Gaskell

George Hutchins Covered Bridge at Alley Park in Lancaster was the setting for the wedding uniting Sarah A. Steffen and Chad D. Gaskell on Sept. 4, 2011. Pastor Merlyn Seitz officiated the double-ring ceremony. John Anthony was trumpeter. Readers were Emily Steffen of St. Louis, Mo., and William Robertson of Louisville, Ky., cousins of the bride; and Jean Benham of Ashtabula.

Parents of the bride are the late Robert and Anna Beth Steffen. The groom’s parents are Roger and Rebecca Gaskell of Ashtabula.

The bride appeared in a gown of white satin with chiffon overlay embellished with clear beading. She wore white cowgirl boots and a red and white beaded necklace made by Judith Reese. On her wrist she wore a piece of lace from her mother’s wedding dress. The groom was attired in dark blue jeans, white shirt, red tie and black vest made by his mother, black cowboy boots and a boutonniere made by the bride.

Serving as honor attendants were Mary Fleckner of Stuart, Fla., aunt of the bride, and Frank Steffen of Graham, N.C., uncle of the bride. In memory of the bride’s parents, Anna Steffen of Columbus, sister of the bride, presented a memorial quilt which she made. Margaret Vogel of Columbus, aunt of the bride, and Noel Morrison of Johnstown, uncle of the bride, presented memorial carnations. The bride was escorted by her uncle, James Steffen of Carmel, Ind.

Best man was Marc Gaskell of Delaware, brother of the groom. Ushers were Will, Drew, Abby and Sam Robertson of Louisville, second cousins of the bride.

A reception for the couple was held at Goslin Nature Education Center at Charles Alley Nature Park.

The bride graduated from Berne Union High School in 1992 and received her bachelor’s degree in human ecology from The Ohio State University. She is employed as an infant teacher at Eastminster Child’s Play and Learning Center in Columbus.
