Laura Hubbard / William Jeffrey Auten wedding

My cousin, the Rev. Laura Hubbard, married William Jeffrey Auten on Saturday at Cramer Memorial United Methodist Church in the small Gaston County town of Cramerton, NC.

Her sister, the Rev. Susan Ewing, was one of the officiating pastors, which was kind of neat.

I had never been to Cramerton. I don't think I had ever heard of it. It is a town of maybe 2,500 along the South Fork of the Catawba River and has a railroad line that runs through town.

It was a mill village founded in 1906. In 1910 Stuart Warren Cramer bought the mill and changed the name of the town to Cramerton. No ego there, I suppose.

Cramer Memorial United Methodist Church is a lovely church. It's next to the Town Hall. Here are some photos of the church, the area  and the Lail relatives at the wedding.
