Courtney Peddicord and Scott Stiven were married Oct. 12, 2013 at the Power House Theatre in Walla Walla, Wash., a former utility building that has been converted to a performing arts center. The ceremony was held onstage with the grooms uncle, the Honorable James F. Stiven, a retired federal magistrate, presiding.
In keeping with the character of the venue, the wedding had a theatrical production theme. Posters were mounted in the theater lobby and playbills were distributed to guests with vignettes about the supporting cast participating in the wedding. The Blessing of the Hands reading was conducted by the brides sister-in-law, Jennifer Peddicord of Walla Walla. The Unity Wine ceremony, symbolizing two lives blending together as one, was performed by the grooms sister, Alison Stiven, and the brides close friend, Haley Waggoner, both of Portland. Blythe Peddicord, the brides sister, designed the set and nieces and nephews played the roles of flower girls, ring bearers and ushers.
The bride is the daughter of Tim and Karen Peddicord, formerly of Hillsboro and now of Walla Walla. She is a 2000 graduate of Walla Walla High School and has a degree in creative writing from Western Washington University. She is a marketing events manager of F5 Networks in Seattle.
