Jill Thompson was the bride, given away by her father, Ron Miller, in a small ceremony held Sunday afternoon, Aug. 2, in Dutch Village Mall. Groom Todd Webster said it was the first wedding to be held at the downtown Lynden location. The wedding couple knew each other in high school in Reseda, California, 28 years ago, but did not renew acquaintance until about a year ago. Webster’s parents live locally.
