WARRENTON, ORE. - On Aug. 21, 2004, Sara Kathleen Johnson, daughter of Bruce and Terri Johnson of Warrenton, Ore., married Regan Benjamin Wirkkala, son of Wallace and Maria Wirkkala of Naselle, in an outdoor ceremony on Cullaby Lake.
Because it poured down rain during the ceremony, the couple said they started their marriage with "showers of blessings."
Maid of honor was Erika Johnson of Gresham, Ore. Bridesmaids were Shauna Hoekert of Portland and Becky Wilson of Seaside. Best man was Tim Wirkkala of Naselle. Groomsmen were Lamar Wirkkala of Naselle and Lee Verbarendse of Bellingham. A reception followed at Cullaby Lake.
After a honeymoon in Maui, Hawaii, the couple now reside in Rosburg.
