On Thursday, Dec. 22, a Trinity County couple was married in the corn room of Stubbs’ Chemical and Feed store, housed in a building erected in 1897 and located in Trinity, TX. The owner of the business and Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace, Lyle Stubbs, performed the ceremony.
The bride’s friend and wedding coordinator, Kim Peppercorn, saw the corn room of the feed store and felt it would provide perfect scenery for the wedding. The bride, Lynda Whitehead, and groom, Rick Crofford, live on 41 acres in Trinity County adjacent to the Peppercorns’ property, Triple T Ranch.
Above, the newly wedded couple prepares to toast with champagne with their friends. Per an employee’s suggestion, the friends threw deer corn in place of traditional birdseed after the wedding.
Long ago, the Stubbs’ Chemical and Feed Store building housed the first movie theater in Trinity County, called “The Bijou”.
