A burlap runner ran down the aisle and ended at a cross with a flower arrangement made of snap dragons, hydrangeas and peonies. Between the cross was an old table that held the unity cross braid. An old sling back chair was placed for the pastor (Rev. Don Coppedge) who baptized both of them. There were seven white church pews padded in burlap on both sides of the aisle.
