Jessica McDonald Marries

Jessica McDonald, daughter of James and Stacy, married Jacob Guenther today. Pictures are up on James' Facebook. Not sure how I feel about the mint green bridesmaid dresses but Jessica's dress is quite pretty.

I am quite curious to know if Jessica ever legally changed her name to McDonald. For those of you who don't know, Jessica is Stacy's daughter from her first marriage and unless they went to court, her last name should have been Kimmelman.

She has been married three times?!

No but she courted two guys previously. But James and Stacy considered courting similar to betrothal so I guess she's twice divorced. :lol: I think they have distanced themselves from that belief though since Tiffany broke her first engagement and Jessica's first two courtships did not end in marriage.

Yep, her sister Melissa ended up marrying Garrison Sanford. I believe he was the first guy Jessica courted.

Mint green is pretty, but those dresses are ugly and ill-fitting.

yep, ill-fitting is the thing that sticks out most. the dresses would've been better had they fit properly.

Collarbones and bare arms! Stacy, whatever became of "If you're not a promiscuous woman, don't present yourself as one"?

James McDonald adopted Jessica, so I'm sure her name was legally changed.

Dear Stacy:

I get the coverage thing but the giant shawl would make a Hasidic or Muslim lady cry. It is called a shrug or short sleeved sweater and it looks better than the afghan you borrowed from the couch. Or table.

Hmmm.... According to the Peoria County court records, James did not adopt Jessica. She had her name legally changed from Kimmelman to McDonald in March of this year. http://justice.peoriacounty.org/default.aspx Under Civil Cases, Case No. 14-MR-00025

I've always thought there was no way James adopted her since that would have required her dad to give up all parental rights. It's sad how far they go to hide the fact that Stacy was previously married. I wonder what Gary Kimmelman thinks of the whole thing.

Wow, dominionists are starting to cross-reference themselves!

In another topic, we're speculating on whether Steve Bargar changed his name to Steve Maxwell as a young child or as an older adolescent before he went into the US military service, and here we have a 20-something bride finally getting around to changing her name legally some 20 years (I'm guessing) after she began being called by that name!

Abby_B, good sleuthing to find out Jessica's father's name! Or do you know them IRL?

Here's another thought -- your sweater/cardigan/tablecloth/shawl/covering: why not wear it in the same color as your dress, Stacy? You know, so as not to distract from the bride's white on her special day?

I'm sure there's a "common-sense essential oil" for that.... :shifty-kitty:

That must make for awkward family get-togethers. Or do they leave-and-cleave (really leave-and-cleave, not Duggar leave-and-cleave)?

Personally, I think the mint is a little insipid, but that's just a personal taste thing, or maybe my vision is impaired after the photos from Alyssa Bate's/Webster's colour extravaganza, but those bridesmaid dresses look appalling! I don't think I've seen bridesmaid dresses as poorly fitted as those three.

All of the bridesmaid's dresses were poorly fitted, not just those three. It's just particularly obvious in that photo. I found her pinterest page. I think I can see what she was going for but modesty guidelines and budget constraints seem to have gotten in the way.

It probably doesn't help that of those three bridesmaid's at least one is pg and at least one has recently had a baby. It must be difficult to make decent modest dresses for three women who constantly somewhere on the making babies treadmill, even with good dressmaking skills. Whoever made those dresses didn't even have that.

That'll learn me for rushing off and not looking any further :embarrassed:

Very true. Something simpler, or even store bought :o might have been better, but I guess the bride wants what the bride wants, so the poor old dressmaker just had to try her best, even with all the odd after/between baby sizes.

The groom looks about 16. I almost hate to say or, but Jessica's dress is pretty - not at all what I'd expect from MODESTYMODESTYMODESTY Stacey.

I wonder which essential oils she will tell us were an absolutely vital part of the wedding.....

I guess Stacy lied? I remember reading on the blog that her and James adopted each other's children.

Stacy being creative with the truth? :o

Who would've thunk it possible? :shifty-kitty:

I wonder if the bio parents get invited to these weddings?

Doubt it. They make them out to be horrible people. None of James kids talk to their mom even though she has attempted to be in their lives and loves and misses them. Great Christian attitude huh?

The whole divorce/remarriage was discussed on an old thread, maybe back in the yuku days. Also, all of the Texas marriage and divorce records are online and free to access. Stacy married James 6 months after her divorced was finalized... so when they met, she was probably still married. I really don't believe most of Stacy's story about the divorces.

I don't personally know the McDonalds IRL but we've been at some of the same events over the years and we have mutual friends. Let's just say, I'm not a fan.

      My sweet pup was diagnosed with a brain tumor in September. She passed away in my arms on Thanksgiving morning. It all happened so fast. She didn't want to eat anything the day before, but prior to that was ok. Knew it was near time and had booked an appointment to take her next week. However, she decided for me. She was only 8 and really was one of the best dogs. She never met a stranger, human or dog. Life isn't the same without her.

      I made my first Granny Square! After nearly 30 years of knitting and crocheting this was a project I never did. Until now! I needed something to do with my rest of very colourful yarn and now I am very happy. I need to try different needles with my yarns but I think I found something nice for the future.
      I needed only 3 different youtube videos until I found a person who explained the concept slowly and repetitive and with words I can understand. I hate when these tutorials make me feel dumb.

      We had to put our 14 year old dachshund, Trinket, down today.  She was fine Thursday, but by mid-morning yesterday, it was apparent that something was really wrong,  She had zero energy, lost her appetite and began walking into corners.  By morning I knew it was time for her to have her final visit to the vet.  She had lost about a pound and a half recently.  RIP, Trinket!

      Horrific! A 6 year old boy was murdered, and mother severly injured, in a hate crime in Chicago. Reports say they are both Palestinian Muslims and were specifically targeted because of that. Thankfully the man who did it is in custody 
      This is pure evil
